Rockstar Games has finally unveiled the first official trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6, the long-awaited sequel to the best-selling GTA 5. The GTA 6 official trailer, released on December 5, 2023, confirms some of the rumors and leaks circulating online for years, such as the setting, characters, and release date.
The trailer opens with a stunning aerial shot of Vice City, the fictional version of Miami that was first introduced in GTA: Vice City in 2002. The city has been revamped and expanded to include new areas, such as the Everglades, the Keys, and the Caribbean islands. The trailer then cuts to various scenes of gameplay, showcasing the diverse activities, vehicles, weapons, and missions that players can expect in GTA 6.
One of the most surprising and exciting revelations from the trailer is the introduction of the first female lead character in the GTA series. The trailer reveals that players can switch between protagonists, similar to GTA 5, but one of them will be a woman named Valeria, a Colombian drug lord who runs a cartel in Vice City. Valeria is voiced by Rosario Dawson, who is also featured in the live-action poster for GTA 6.
The other two protagonists are Tommy, a retired bank robber who returns to Vice City after a long absence, and Rico, a Cuban-American hacker who works for Valeria. Tommy is voiced by Ray Liotta, who reprised his role as Tommy Vercetti from GTA: Vice City, while Rico is voiced by Oscar Isaac, who is also known for his roles in Star Wars and Dune.
The trailer also confirms the release date for GTA 6, which is set for 2025. The game will be available for PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X. The game will also be available on PC, but no official announcement has been made yet. They will feature cross-play and cross-progression across all platforms.
