Yes, there are flamingos in the GTA 6 Trailer 1
It’s finally official — the GTA 6 Trailer 1 has been released by Rockstar Games and will be set in the fictional Miami-themed Vice City, as well as the state of Leonida that is based on modern day Florida. Bound to be the most watched video on YouTube for the entire month of November, there’s no doubt Grand Theft Auto 6 will be the biggest game of its generation upon launch.
Now when is the launch exactly? Well as the GTA 6 Trailer 1 indicates, we won’t be able to travel around Vice City and the entirety of Leonida until 2025. Seeing how dense the beach and nightlife are as seen in the 90-second trailer, Rockstar can take as much time as they need as it’s going to require some beefy graphical power to run these settings at 60 frames per second or higher.
Cityscapes are quickly showcased in the opening scene along with towers blending away into the horizon. Grand Theft Auto 6 looks groundbreaking (no pun intended on Los Santos / San Andreas), and the game surely has advanced significantly since GTA V.
Airboats, alligators, and flamingos dominate the locations outside the neon-soaked streets of the coastline. Viral clips and instances of “Florida Man” are scattered throughout the trailer as well, indicating that there will definitely be some kind of social media influenced gameplay in Rockstar’s next adventure. Were you able to spot some of the real-life references? We definitely caught a few.
Besides the scenery, Rockstar has introduced their very first female protagonist in the series, a woman named Lucia who appears to be in some kind of Bonnie and Clyde relationship with another male lead in the game. The two are shown holding up convenience stores, stealing money, and breaking the law.
It’s going to take several more rewatches of GTA 6 Trailer 1 in order to capture everything Rockstar has left on the table. Something tells us that even after several servings, we’re still going to be left hungry for more.
