Speaking of Red Dead, it seems like GTA 6 will be introducing a cinematic mode option that will allow players to put their controller down and enjoy the scenery while traveling to a destination.

The feature was very well received in Red Dead and with GTA 6’s map looking like it’ll be completely massive, fans may want to turn it on while needing to commute across Vice City for missions.

There are also options to ping or communicate with a “buddy.” The game will feature at least two playable protagonists, so being able to interact with them certainly makes sense.

To round things out, there seem to be some Online-exclusive actions including self-revives, killing one’s self while downed, and surrendering.

Of course, anything can change from now until the game’s eventual release, but if this is anything to go by, GTA 6 will be building off a lot of what made Red Dead Redemption 2 such a masterpiece.
