The first trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6 has 'dropped', sparking interest not only among regular players but also those with GTA modded accounts
, curious about the new possibilities the game will offer. Is what we've seen here viable on current-gen consoles in real-time? Is there any evidence of hardware-accelerated ray tracing effects? How do the characters and hair rendering look so good? And is 60fps on PS5/Series X and an Xbox Series S port actually viable?
