Rockstar is one developer that everyone has their eyes on. If anyone in the group so much as sneezes, the gaming industry turns its head. Much of this scrutiny is the result of the long wait between numbered installments of its flagship “Grand Theft Auto” series. MASSIVE GTA 6 LEAK

What is known so far about “GTA 6” is actually quite a bit. Some of the leaks that have popped up over the years teased a return to Vice City – a locale that hasn’t been seen since the titular game back in 2002. Furthermore, outlets and journalists reported on a whole new dynamic for the lead characters, including word of a Latina protagonist — a pretty big deal, since female playable characters haven’t been seen since the original “Grand Theft Auto.” MASSIVE GTA 6 LEAK

These reports are looking more and more true now that a massive “Grand Theft Auto 6” leak has given fans a peek at tons of footage from the highly anticipated game, including a first look at its main character. That’s not all, though. The recent leak is absolutely shows off combat, new environments, and plenty of steal-able transportation. It’s a doozy of an info drop. Although Rockstar seemingly won’t release “GTA 6” in 2022 or any time soon, this leak has definitely helped alleviate some of the never-ending wait for some fans. Here are some details you might have missed in the midst of all the leaks.

Lucia and Jason

It’s official, Jason and Lucia are at least two of the new protagonists for “GTA.” Rockstar has played with multiple characters in the story mode for “GTA 5,” but it’s no less exciting to see this approach return.

Confirming this is a small snippet showcasing two figures in a motel. During the sequence, a developer triggers the character switch almost instantaneously, swapping between Jason a the active character with Lucia relaxing on a couch. Lucia then gets up and is now being controlled. Another test is done in which Jason walks out of the motel and the developer switches to Lucia in the interior just as quickly

“GTA 5” saw a lot of switching with Michael, Franklin, and Trevor from opposite sides of the map, but it was rarely this quick. Gamers have yet to see the change in characters over large distances, but this peek seems to reassure gamers that it won’t lead to long load times here.

The two characters already seem to have a sense of style all their own, as well. Lucia is seen with a pink top and jeans whereas Jason sports a backwards cap and shorts. These could be their default looks, allowing players to mix up their outfits as they get further in the game.

The smartphone makes a comeback

“Grand Theft Auto 4” saw the emergence of Rockstar’s smartphone system, where it served mainly as a tool to contact friends or dates, as well as trigger some mission events. “GTA 5” added many additions, like email and website functionality. It looks like these will be making a return in the new game, but it’s unclear just how integral it will be to the story.

In a nightclub scene released as part of the leak, there are multiple notifications off to the side of screen, one of which includes someone named “Billy” as a new contact. Further is a “WhatUp!” message, hinting that there will be some form of social system in the new game, both for real world friends and in-game contacts, much like in ‘GTA 5.”

Additionally, there is a quick mention of Life Invader by an NPC in another leaked clip. Life Invader is the official name of the social media application that spoofs Facebook in “GTA 5,” which our new characters presumably use on the daily. Though it has been multiple console generations since the last “Grand Theft Auto,” it’s nice to see so many elements coming back in full force. MASSIVE GTA 6 LEAK

GTA 6 features some interesting environments

Although “GTA 6” appears to bring players back to Vice City, it’s looking to be a very different place than when we last saw it. Sure, there are familiar elements, like the neon-infused nightclubs and beachfront walkways. However, it looks like not only has the location been modernized, but Rockstar is taking pains to make sure it looks authentic to real life Florida locations. Aside from the real-life Miami locations spotted in the footage, one interesting tidbit is how the diner in the robbery clip closely resembles a real life Waffle House. In fact, fans took to Twitter to note the similarities.

“GTA” has always drawn from real life when creating its parodic storylines and locations, so this is to be expected in the next installment. The leaks themselves are filled with different environments, including gas stations, subway stations, multiple bars, motels, and tennis courts. It’s incredibly diverse and could even rival the huge map in “GTA 5.”

Making this version of Florida feel even more realistic are some truly hilarious NPC interactions, including an argument between some rednecks in a trailer park. Jason talks with some redneck NPCs. Vice City is already a fleshed out area in its titular entry, but players are already getting an idea of how much it has grown in “GTA 6.”
