How to Switch Characters in GTA 5 on PS4, Xbox One and PC


The Grand Theft Auto V video game, which was published more than seven years ago, has managed to maintain its appeal to this day. In part, Rockstar can credit GTA Online for this – the game has evolved into a massive community that is expected to continue to expand until GTA 6 is launched (no official release date as of yet). People, on the other hand, continue to love their GTA 5 single-player missions.

The three-character plot is one of the new mechanics that distinguishes the fifth iteration from previous Grand Theft Auto games. You take on the roles of Michael, a middle-aged mobster going through a mid-life crisis, Franklin, a street gang-associated man looking to advance in life, and Trevor, who… well, you’ll have to find out when you play the game.

For the vast majority of GTA 5, and in certain circumstances even during missions, it is able to switch between these three personas. Let’s take a closer look at how GTA 5 character swapping works across different platforms.
