GTA VI to revolutionize open-world gaming with RAGE engine

The highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA 6/GTA VI) is set to break new grounds in the gaming industry with its cutting-edge engine and graphics. The game, which is still shrouded in mystery, is expected to surpass the previous benchmark set by Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) in 2018.

What is the RAGE engine?

The RAGE engine, which stands for Rockstar Advanced Game Engine, is the proprietary software that powers most of Rockstar Games’ titles, including GTA V, RDR2, Max Payne 3, and L.A. Noire. The engine allows for stunning visuals, realistic physics, and dynamic interactivity in the game world.

According to various sources and leaks, Rockstar Games has been working on enhancing the RAGE engine for GTA VI, which will bring unprecedented improvements in various aspects of the game. Some of the most notable enhancements are:

  • Water physics: The in-game waters will be more realistic and responsive to the passage of time, reflecting real-world ocean dynamics. This will make for a more immersive and diverse environment, especially if the game features underwater exploration or naval combat.
  • Driving and vehicle physics: The driving and vehicle physics will be more accurate and authentic, allowing for more varied and enjoyable car gameplay. The vehicles will also be affected by realistic accidents and damage, which will influence their performance and appearance.
  • Weather system: The weather system will be more detailed and interactive, affecting gameplay in specific areas. For example, rain might make the roads slippery, fog might reduce visibility, and snow might create slippery or icy conditions. The weather will also change dynamically according to the time of day and location.
  • Artificial intelligence: The artificial intelligence of the non-player characters (NPCs) will be more advanced and realistic, making them behave more naturally and intelligently. For example, NPCs might react differently to the player’s actions, have their own schedules and routines, or even mug the player if they are desperate.

How will GTA VI compare to RDR2?

RDR2 was widely praised for its stunning graphics, immersive world, and engaging story when it was released in 2018. The game set a new standard for open-world games, showcasing the capabilities of the RAGE engine.

However, GTA VI is expected to surpass RDR2 in terms of graphics and gameplay, thanks to the enhanced RAGE engine and the power of the next-generation consoles. GTA VI will likely feature:

  • Higher resolution and frame rate: GTA VI will run at higher resolution and frame rate than RDR2, making the game look sharper and smoother. The game might also support ray tracing, which is a technique that simulates realistic lighting effects.
  • Larger and more diverse map: GTA VI will have a larger and more diverse map than RDR2, featuring multiple cities and regions with different climates and cultures. The game might also have multiple time periods, allowing the player to travel between different eras.
  • More customization and interactivity: GTA VI will offer more customization and interactivity options than RDR2, allowing the player to personalize their character, vehicles, weapons, clothes, and properties. The game might also have more activities and minigames to enjoy.

What else do we know about GTA VI?

Besides the engine enhancements, there are many other rumours and speculations about GTA VI’s setting, characters, story, and features. Some of the most popular ones are:

  • The game will return to Vice City: Vice City is one of the most iconic locations in the GTA franchise, inspired by Miami in the 1980s. Many fans hope that GTA VI will revisit this nostalgic setting, with updated graphics and new elements.
  • The game will have two playable characters: GTA V introduced the concept of having multiple playable characters with different personalities and skills. GTA VI might continue this trend by having two protagonists: Jason and Lucia, who are based on the infamous crime duo Bonnie and Clyde.
  • The game will have UFOs, malls, torture scenes, and more: Reddit is a source of many leaks and rumours about GTA VI, some of which are more credible than others. Some of the most intriguing ones include the presence of UFOs in the game world; expansive shopping malls with various shops; NPCs that can mug or rob the player; a controversial torture scene similar to GTA V; and many more.

As Rockstar Games remains tight-lipped about GTA VI’s development and release date, fans can only speculate and hope for the best. However, one thing is certain: GTA VI will be a groundbreaking game that will redefine open-world gaming.
