Here’s a First Look at Vice City in GTA 6

After a decade of waiting, Rockstar Games has finally released the first trailer for GTA 6. In addition to confirming Vice City’s iconic location, we now know for certain that the game will be set in the state Leonidas. While there will be other locations besides Vice City, today we’re focusing on all the iconic old and new locations we saw in the trailer. So if you’ve really missed this nostalgic area and want to see what’s back, read on.

Returning Vice City locations in GTA 6

Before the trailer, we got a lot of leaks and rumors about the size and location of the map. While it all felt speculative, many of the leaks from the first trailer seem valid. Since Vice City is still fresh in our minds even after eleven years, here are the Vice City locations we saw in the GTA 6 official trailer:

The trailer opens with a glimpse of the pristine smell of sand and the breeze of Miami City. Once the beaches are shown, the similarity is striking Vice City Beaches with large skyscrapers around it and of course people in bathing suits.

The trailer then takes us to the nightlife of Vice City in GTA 6, where we see two major nostalgic locations. We see a glimpse of the Hotel with sea view logo in its compelling neon pink color from afar. Oceanview is one of the iconic locations in Vice City where the very first mission, ‘In The Beginning…’ for the original Vice City, begins.

Speaking of iconic, the strip clubs are here in GTA 6. First we walk inside Malibu Club, which is packed with the crowds we expected. The similarities between the original Malibu and the new one are easy to see. Gamers will love the Top position in broad daylight. This is another iconic pole dancing and strip club from the original Vice City. If so, we may see two of Vice City’s strip clubs again in the new game.

Okay, enough talk about parties; Now let’s dive into Vice City’s crime alley. The trailer shows a shipyard with several speeding boats in what appears to be a battle or a race. This place immediately reminded me of the Boatyard in Vice City. That’s why I expect a lot of chaos around this place.

Speaking of chaos, we got our first look at the Pawn and weapon shop, which could very well serve as the Ammu-Nation in the game. There will be a lot of action, as the trailer already showed Lucia and her partner wandering around the place. I hope the inside of the store also conveys the same feeling. Keep reading to find out how this ties in with some new locations.

Last but not least, it feels canon to me when we use the South Bridge of Vice City in GTA VI. As you can see from the bridge’s directional sign, it leads to the Vice City Airport, which leads to even more possibilities.

a card leak of the X account, @GTASixInfo, suggested some locations that appear to be accurate to the Vice City setting and even match some of the signs seen in the trailer, such as Vice Beaches And Port VC/keys. Apart from these locations, other places shown in the leak are yet to be confirmed and lack evidence to claim as official.

Overall, it looks like the upcoming Vice City in GTA 6 will return with many iconic locations that we loved and hold in our hearts. However, keep in mind that this is only the first trailer for GTA 6. This means that Rockstar may have many other Vice City locations under its belt.

Potential new locations in GTA 6 Vice City

In addition to the various nostalgic locations, we also see some potentially new locations located in Vice City. Leaks also suggest Port Gellhorn will be another large map, similar to Vice City in GTA 6. But that is not the only large city in the state of Leonida, as another large city will also participate in the frame. This speculation comes from the leaking via X account @GTAVInewz.

In a tweet, the account referenced a conversation between two friends, one of whom claimed to be the son of Rockstar Games lead developer Aaron Garbut. This conversation also goes into the details of having a large lake surrounding the city, which we finally see in the trailer. We can also see from a quick glance the gun and pawn shop in Port Gellhorn. This further confirms the existence of Port Gellhorn in GTA 6.

Port Gellhorn Armory and Pawn Shop

While we wait for more official confirmation on new locations in GTA 6, let’s take a look at some other new locations in Vice City, shown in the trailer:

The Mud club is a new location shown in the trailer. We can speculate that the location is in Vice City, according to the social notes in the trailer. This is actually followed by another Swamp Lake area that reminded me of Everglades in Vice City. However, the new one looks abandoned and there are no buildings around it.

Plus, it looks like the Mud Club might be part of it activities you can participate in in the game. But that hasn’t been confirmed yet. Nevertheless, we speculate that it is a new location. In addition to these locations we see signboards of locations where, among other things Catalan Boulevard, Kelly County and even neighborhoods like Stockyard Downtown.

Since GTA 6 is coming out in 2025, it’s worth noting that there could be more connection between the old and new Vice City. We’ll share more updates about GTA 6 as they come out. Until then, tell us about your favorite Vice City location in the comments below.
