GTA 5 characters: three main protagonists confirmed

Rockstar to offer "groundbreaking" team play

Grand Theft Auto 5 will be the first GTA in history to offer multiple playable protagonists, according to US magazine Game Informer, which has just revealed its December cover.

The art shows three, well-armed men, doubtless in the process of taking care of business. "We introduce the three main protagonists, discuss the groundbreaking way you use them, and explore the reimagined Los Santos - the biggest open world Rockstar has created to date," reads the associated copy.


One of those protagonists could be the "east coast gangster" revealed unto the world this morning. The other probably isn't B-Dup. According to the magazine's managing editor Matt Bertz (via VG247), none of the characters depicted is previously rumoured leading man "Albert De Silva".

Here's a round-up of confirmed and unconfirmed GTA 5 character details. GI also has a background image of the chap on the right holding a bigger gun. Different sized guns confirmed.
