Michael, Franklin, and Trevor can’t kill each other in Grand Theft Auto V

Authored by


It’s quite interesting to note the type of things gamers come up with that they want to try out in video games. In a question and answer session about GTA V with Rockstar, a Twitter user asked the following question:

“If I play as Trevor, can I zoom out, find out where Michael is, and then go and kill him while playing as Trevor?”

The quick answer to that is: no, you can’t. Rockstar says that gamers are meant to play all three characters’ “interwoven stories” so it wouldn’t make sense to get rid of one of the main protagonists! But how can Rockstar prevent this from happening? Well, for starters, it’s not going to be easy for players to track the location of any of the three protagonists down. However, if gamers do end up finding them, they’ll be able to hang out with them but they can’t be killed.

It seems that the company is well aware of determined gamers, though. It stated, “If a player is determined enough though, they may well find a way to badly injure one of the characters and switching to that character would just put you in the hospital to continue where you left off.”

I give it a few months before someone comes up with a mod to kill one of the protagonists.

  1. It’s sounding a lot like the mechanic from the LEGO games where you can switch between characters on the fly. They all come to the mission, but you switch between characters depending on which skill you need from the character that supports it (one picks locks, one is great with rifles, one is a master of hand-to-hand combat, etc.). In that sense, they’re a team dependent on each other so you wouldn’t be able to set them up against each other. At least…not in single player or multiplayer co-op. I’m totally interested to see where this goes. Really looking forward to this title.
