An all-new concept map has shown what London could look like if Rockstar Games chooses to take the franchise back to its roots and make the UK the chosen setting for GTA 6.

With Grand Theft Auto fans becoming expectant of an announcement about GTA VI, speculation and teases have been ramping up. Supposed insiders have claimed that details about the game will finally be dropped on March 25, though, nothing has been confirmed yet.

Even though many fans and rumors have speculated that the game will be returning to the Miami-inspired setting of Vice City, others have been coming with their own ideas for the next map – including a mash-up of a few classic GTA locations and even heading to South America.

Los Santos has become a well trodden location for GTA players.

Yet, one fan has chosen to throw it back even further than Vice City, hoping that Rockstar Games chooses to take the game back to where it all began – London. 

The concept map was posted by GRMDaily, showing how the capital of the United Kingdom would look as an up-to-date map for Grand Theft Auto 6 – with named areas like The City of Westminster, Lambeth, and Southwark. 

While the map does have a few icons that might represent missions or activities, as well as an ‘alpha build’ message in the bottom right-hand corner, it’s unlikely to be a leak that has slipped out of Rockstar’s grasp. For one, the developer never uses real city names, so they probably wouldn’t use the City of Westminster as a location.

The concept map has a handful of icons on that could look like missions or other activities in GTA.

Across the Thames River, which seems to have all it’s iconic bridges in place as well, eagle-eyed fans might notice that the London Stadium – used to host the 2012 Olympics and home to West Ham United – has its own place in the Lambeth area. 

Again, though, those sort of landmarks are rarely used by Rockstar in their development, as they put their own twist on landmarks, sports stadiums, and iconic buildings.

Fans might well welcome a new location, seeing as Los Santos and Liberty City have been focal points for four of the last five games in the GTA series.

However, it remains to be seen where GTA 6 will go with rumors swirling around Vice City, South America, and even a multi-nation game.


GTA Online player discovers Up-n-Atomizer trick you would never think of

The Up-n-Atomizer might not look like its from the same planet as other Grand Theft Auto weapons, but one GTA Online player has discovered a handy trick with it that the everyday person would find helpful. 

The world of GTA 5 is full with violence, fast cars and loud sounds. Even if you get a few members of the community who stick to the roads and stop at traffic lights for a laugh, generally they are in the minority and the rest is utter chaos.

A gun like the Up-n-Atomizer is capable of great things, terrible, but great. Its powerful blast can send cars, buses, tanks, and even planes flying in the opposite direction.

However, one player has shown a more delicate side to the gun. Apparently, this is actually the perfect tool to move cars between parking spaces.

Moving cars isn’t difficult in GTA, but the Up-n-Atomizer definitely makes it more graceful. Well, if you use it right.

GTA Online trick for the Up-n-Atomizer

As seen in a clip posted to the GTA Online subreddit, user skelatorx7 proved that it’s not all about destruction with the weapon.

In fact, with just one small push, they were able to move their car perfectly from one place to another without doing a single scratch to it. Now, here it’s just one off the street and not many will care about that, but it would definitely be handy if it were your own insured vehicle.

As seen in the video, the player simply aimed in and fired low into the side of the car. Soon after, it flips perfectly into the next parking spot as if it was a natural way for it to happen.

Not everybody in the comments quite understood how it worked, though. One said: “How did the shot go through the car?” while another posted: “Car flip? How?”

Other users have found more crazy ways of using the Atomizer, of course, including the use of it to shift buses in the middle of the road. After all, they can be annoying, cruising around slowly in front of your speedy vehicles.

You never know, maybe in the future your mechanic will be blasting your cars over to you like this, rather than riding them to your path. Never going to happen, but definitely a funny picture to paint.
