GTA has always been characterized by the variety of accessories in the form of gameplay elements that come with main missions of the game. These include various aspects of the open-world that the player interacts with and various mini-missions and mini-games.
The new addition to the series, the upcoming GTA V, also is replete with such aspects which promise to make the game even more interesting and playable than its predecessors.
Compiled here is a list of 6 lesser known GTA secrets that may have escaped your oversight.
1. You can switch characters on the fly when not in missions
Players will be able to switch from one character to another when not undergoing any mission. However, if they do so, they will find themselves in between car chases or at the beginning of some particular mission exclusive to one of the three characters.
2. You can buy property and invest in real estate
This is a first in the Garnd Theft Auto series of games. Players can invest in property and real estate. They can also put their money in stock exchange and invest in other such risky but rewarding ventures.
This will provide a welcome change from the missions when they become monotonous and increase the playing time of the game.
3. Characters have special abilities
GTA V contains three player controlled protagonists- Michael, Trevor and Franklin, criminals whose stories interconnect as they complete missions. Each of them has a special ability which can be activated. Michael can slow down time during gunfights (a.k.a Max Payne), Franklin can also slow down time, but during driving. Trevor can enter into a violent rage mode where he can take less damage and do more damage to enemies and perform a unique melee attack.
Interesting powers, these. Will be of help during tight situations.
