When asked if the mission structure in “GTA 5” is similar to the one found in “GTA IV: Episodes from Liberty City,” Matt Bertz (the Managing Editor at Game Informer), responded with the following comment on Twitter:

No, they said it's not like episodes. Some story missions are just one guy. Some a couple, some have all three.

When asked if you can use one character for a mission and then play as another one in the second play-through, responded with the following:

Not for individual missions. But within missions with multiple characters, you can switch between them on the fly.

“GTA 5,” which is being developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games, is slated to come out for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles in North America next spring. You can pre-order the game in the following link: “GTA 5”
