I'm talking about the rappelling system seen in the Gameplay Trailer.
People think that it's a 1 time mission usage, but what if the same system is used to climb a mountain / come back down. I think it would be amazing, jumping down 5 ft at a time, enjoying the view and firing your pistol into the air. I think it will be an item of equipment, in the fact in GTA IV, if you landed on a roof and your chopper crashed, you were screwed. Now in V you should be able to rappel down the building in good fashion.

TL;DR

Rapelling feature is underlooked
Could be used for mountain climbing
Could be used if stuck on building

Discuss if this would be a good feature.

I'm sure it's mission only. It would be really cool if you could do it anytime you wanted, but I really doubt it. confused.gif

That would be awesome. Perhaps you could have that in your kit along with the parachute. I wouldn't think they would include it, but if they do it create a lot of new gameplay options.

I think it would be a really cool feature. But I have a feeling it is for that mission, I hope I'm wrong.

During that mission when Michael is hanging from the helicopter, I'm going to switch to Trevor and do this:

You can probably do it more than once, in that it's used in more than one mission.

Unless R* has seriously changed their philosophy on game development, there will be a number of features that are restricted to missions.

@Choco Taco
Well, during missions the character switching is a little more restricted, sometimes only letting you switch between two members even if all three are present, or not letting you switch at all, or forcing you to switch. In that particular case, we can't switch to Trevor until the helicopter chase starts. Which means you can't smack Michael into the wall. tounge.gif

Yeah, I immediately recognized Trevor in the picture, without even reading the text. tounge.gif

OT: I really hope we can use ropes to climb steep mountains and cliff faces. Now that would be a great new game capability. colgate.gif

Yes we can, at least according to the Game Informer preview from last year at that part of the mission we can either be Michael shooting down the other choppers or we can be Trevor flying away. The thing is Michael probably makes his way back into the helicopter before we're able to take control again.

like window cleaning platforms in IV, this will be do-able from specific points, one or two mission related, and a few in freeroam that has no use and no one will do it.

That's what I said. You get to be Trevor during the helicopter chase, but not while hovering above the IAA building while Michael is rappelling there. During that part, you choose between Michael and Franklin (and Franklin only becomes a choice after Michael has entered the building). During the chase, you can choose between all three.

While it seems good on paper I don't see myself using this much if at all in free roam. I'd rather drive/dive off a mountain and use a parachute then repel down it. The same can be said if stuck on a building.

It might not be mission only but then again it might not be used EVERYWHERE in Free roam. What If you can use it at Certain locations. There is hiking and who knows there maybe certain areas around the mountain tops where you can descend down or even rock climb up.

Hopeful yes but just speculation of course.

So if we can rappelling off a building

of a mountain, bridges etc.?

i hope this isn't just a mission type of thing it would be a shame if we won't be able to use it in such a big map...

there's a lot of cool ways to play with this new in-game mechanism...

Multiple rappel down missions?

I was watching the screens on R* page and I've found the one were Michael is rappeling down a building and breaking into the glass. I've recognized, that in the screenshot it's a different office than in the gameplay video

So - either there are more missions were we can do this, or we can do this in free roaming (which would be great) OR the screenshot is taken from another floor of the same building - that would mean, that there are more offices we can enter because they have interior

Grappling hook?

As we all saw Michael rappels down a building in one of the missions so far. Wouldent this be a useful tool to climb up and down buildings? Your thoughts?

I don't know how it would work in free-roam. Would there just be random rappelling posts here and there that you could use? Or would you need to get Trevor and Michael in a helicopter together?

I would bet money it's not mission only. R* has already showed it off and it's an actual mechanic, which means there's already code(gameplay) for it. It wouldn't be hard to apply that same code to other areas in the game. I just think it would be a waste if R* only uses it for one mission.

To be honest it looked very smoothly animated.

And you can see michaels feet find the wall, (Euphoria engine in play his body reacts to the alignment of the wall. ) Im quite confident we can do this outside of missions. Why go through all that trouble moddeling rappling gear so accurately.

That's very reasonable, but I'm sure the same logic could be applied to any of IV's mission-only features.

do any of you guys remember those window cleaning lifts in gta 4 , and if so do you remember if they were accessible in free roam . I think the same process will apply for rappeling
