When you switch characters, it zooms out, shows an overhead satellite-like view of the area, and then zooms back down to who you switched to.

The GTA reddit has all the info up. Supposedly you also play the antagonist at points.

Here's the article in full.

I've got a lot of reading to do from the looks of it. This game cannot come soon enough.

I don't know if this has been posted or not but here you go:



Sounds great! It sounds like they're balancing GTA IV with other games. I'm a bit disappointed you can't buy property or customise your characters more than just change their clothes but it still sounds/looks absolutely awesome! If they did push the date back because of Black Ops 2 then it should be near perfect. I am so confident this game is going to be amazing. Man, why couldn't this be coming out Nov.13th, not Black Ops 2. Oh, and a world bigger than 3 games? JEEEEEEZ!

The Salton Sea bit interests me. It may have been Tec 9 who posted a map which had a salt like on it.

"When you're not controlling them, they're going about their daily business and you may be surprised by the situations they find themselves in should you switch back to check up on them"
Does that mean they're going to be controlled in real time by AI all over the map? Holy shit

This sounds like the greatest innovation of a GTA game ever.

I'd love to switch back to one of them and they're grinding on a fat guy in a gay bar when you were shooting the shit out of people with him ten minutes ago.

You're gonna switch to one banging a hooker in his car down an alley way. Also, all three are guys, we didn't get a gal. Oh well.

I'm so looking forward to the second trailer for this game more than actual games other than The Last Of Us. I'm also more excited for just the second trailer than I was for recent releases. I would pre-order, but I'm waiting for a special edition to be announced or an announcement telling us if there won't be a special edition.

Similar to Midnight Club: Los Angles - only more advanced.

Looking good. Looking really good. I'm really interested in the narrative possibilities this "switching characters" mechanic will bring. It gives the opportunity for some Pulp Fiction-like experiences. I wouldn't be surprised if one or two of the missions digs on that film, actually, since it's set in L.A.

The other big thing I got from the article is the dynamic missions. This is something that's been promised to us in the past. I remember reading in a GTA3 preview article way back when that we would have NPCs get in our cab, tell us stories and send us on a side mission. I've always been excited by that, but it's never come to fruition. I'm hoping we see a mechanic like that in GTAV.

And Darkel. And Donald Love. But Houser basically scrapped those hopes. >_< I think we'll see Brucie in Los Santos on Vespucci Beach. I think we'll see Little Jacob again. And, with the FIB, I'm guessing Agent Jones from TLAD will make an appearance.

Sounds like no country for old men. Awesome.
