I was watching the second trailer for GTA 5 today and I noticed a recurring theme. They would introduce a playable character and give them a bit of backstory. Michael was a family man, Trevor a hillbilly thug, and Franklin was a car thief. Then they introduced Michael's son James and showed him on a mission with Franklin and Michael on a boat on a freeway. I was curious if anyone else thought this was Rockstar's way of showing that James would be a playable character as well, maybe they'll pull a Red Dead Redemption on us and sneak in another character as a surprise.
Will there be 4 playable characters?
This topic is locked from further discussion.
I have a theory that the female cop from one of the posters is going to be playable and in charge of trying to capture the other 3 playable characters, but you'll only get to play as her in certain missions (meaning no free roam.) I think it would be awesome to play detective L.A. Noire style here and there to gives the game more mission variety (something I've always criticised GTA games for not having enough of.)
I wouldn't bet any money on this being the case, but it does seem like something Rockstar would at least consider doing.
Damnit! Just once I want to predict something and have it come true. You couldn't have given me a little glimmer of hope? Just an ounce? Where have you heard this anyways? Where are your numerous reports?
I think that detail was included in a lot of the previews that were released a couple months ago.
I'm going to guess that any fourth playable character will be the dog from the first trailer.
I bet the fourth character is actually Kaysens dog Willie. You know that would be cool, sniffing around and whatnot.
Return of Smellovision!
I think maybe juggling three people for the duration of the game is enough. Introducing a fourth for limited periods could be cool though.
