Picture: Rockstar Video games
A consumer on GTAForums, who claims to have additionally been behind the current hack of Uber, has simply dumped practically 100 movies on-line claiming to point out improvement footage of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto VI, that are presently cicrulating throughout just about each social media platform.
Matching a lot of what Bloomberg reported earlier this yr—together with that the sport will co-star a girl and be set in Vice Metropolis—the movies are very a lot in-development footage, with unfinished textures and fashions in all places, and code enjoying out in real-time throughout a lot of them. The leaker is presently taking requests asking folks what else they’d prefer to see in additional movies.
In a single, a white male playable character encounters a racist NPC by a poolside, and because the dialog transpires you possibly can see the code required for the interplay enjoying out alongside the in-game motion. In one other, the girl character—I’m solely specifying it like this as a result of it will be a sequence first—explores one of many sequence’ notorious strip golf equipment.
There’s additionally a video exhibiting “passenger capturing mechanics”, illustrated with the participant taking an AK-47 to some pursuing police automobiles, and one other that showcases the inside modelling of a automotive.
One of many extra full movies uploaded reveals each characters partnering as much as rob a diner, holding the patrons at gunpoint earlier than the police arrive. Others are in rougher form, and have little greater than a featureless placeholder character transferring round an empty panorama performing out fight animations like taking cowl.
The legitimacy of those movies is clearly in query. There’s actually quite a lot of footage, and faking each the motion and the code working on the identical time can be quite a lot of work for an web prank. But it surely’s nonetheless a leak, and until Rockstar feedback (we’ve reached out and can replace if we hear again), we received’t comprehend it’s actual till we will match what’s proven right here with no matter ultimately turns up in GTA VI.
Whether it is actual, then holy shit. Given the standing of the sport and the quantity of footage it will be one of many greatest of all time, proper up there with Half-Life 2.
