GTA V character variety likely

We are just days away from the highly anticipated reveal for GTA V, which is going to be featured on the front cover of Game Informer, with the issue going live online on November 8. To get you warmed up for the main event, new details on the game have apparently leaked, confirming that players may be able to take the role of multiple characters in the main story mode.

As you can imagine, this month’s issue of Game Informer is very hot property indeed and one user is claiming to have already seen the GTA 5 feature already, four days early. The user has wasted no time in revealing the key details from GI’s issue and we again hear the mention of a certain Albert De Silva being the main character.

You may not remember, but the first time we actually heard of the main character being named Albert De Silva was back in March, after some of the first ‘alleged’ details slipped out. At the time, a lot of you were saying the information was completely fake, but now that we’ve again heard the De Silva name – does it mean that the details from an supposed ex Rockstar employee was right all along?

Additional details from this week’s leak also suggest that players will also assume the role of a second main character, identified as Dougie Vejo, who is thought to be a younger criminal living in Los Santos. As for De Silva, we’re now hearing that he is a 42 year old half-American, half-Puerto Rican US citizen, who has an ex-wife and two children to look after.

De Silva is apparently aggrieved after losing his money in a scam and we’re guessing that part of the central storyline will evolve around him doing whatever it takes to line his pockets once again. There are also some further details from the GameFaq user who hints that ‘one or two’ characters from GTA IV may make an appearance – if this part is true, who would you like to see return?

It is exciting stuff indeed and we have a feeling the details are legit, seeing as the Albert De Silva name lines up with the March information from the ex-Rockstar employee. Either way, we don’t have long to go until Thursday’s reveal. Let us know what you think about the idea of playing as multiple characters and whether you are happy that Albert De Silva now appears to be the main character in the game.
