Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 has been out for over five years, and it’s still one of the most popular games on the PlayStation 4. With its big open world of Los Santos, countless missions to complete and a plethora of activities to enjoy, it’s fun and addicting.

One of the great features in GTA 5 is the ability to play as any character that you want. Stuck in single player mode? You can switch to playing as Michael, Trevor or Franklin anytime you want. You can also choose from a variety of NPCs or even create your own character using the Rockstar Editor.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to change characters in GTA 5 on PS4 and help you make the most out of your game experience.

Exploring the Character Creator

GTA 5 on the PlayStation 4 provides players with the opportunity to create a unique character that can be used in story mode as well as online modes. The character creator allows for multiple customization options, from face shape and hair color to more detailed attributes like tattoos, scars, voice type, and mannerisms.

In this guide, we’ll provide a detailed overview of how to access and use the various character creation tools available in GTA 5.

To begin creating your character in GTA 5, you need to start the game and move through the menu options until you reach the pause menu. From there you will be able to access a new navigation menu titled “Online” which will allow you to select “Character Creator”. Once you select this option you will be taken into a creation screen that allows you to customize your avatar to fit your desired specifications.

The Character Creator screen is divided into three tabs: Appearance, Personality, and Clothing/Accessories – each with distinct modules allowing further customizing of fine details such as eyeshadow or clothing items like shirts or shoes. In addition to altering physical features (e.g., hairstyle), body type (e.g., muscular or slim), etc., players can also alter their characters’ mannerisms (e.g., walking style) and voice types ranging from gruff American pastorals all the way up to pitchy metal front men sounds – all of which add yet another layer of previously unseen depth for deeper character immersion in GTA 5’s online spaces as well as its content-rich Story Mode campaign worlds.

When creating your avatar’s facial features keep in mind that these choices have minor effects on physical attributes such as strength or speed; if one intends on combating NPCs regularly it would be wise devise an appropriate balance of brawny features like broad jaws alongside smaller increments concerning certain eye shapes for more effective results than others during pursuits throughout Los Santos’ virtual world(s).

After selecting all desired personal customizations it is essential for any burgeoning criminal mastermind intending on constructing his/her own criminal empire within Grand Theft Auto’s vast worldscape that he/she pay close attention when switching between tabs found at top of Character Creator screens – ensuring each aspect has been customized according meeting one’s preferences prior finalizing said design – from shirt-and-trousers ensembles aligned accordingly alongside complementing accessories and tattoos that also add even more dimensions concerning building one’s unique persona within Los Santos’ expansive and varied playing field(s).
