has there been any mention of the way this works? ive been playing rdr again lately and its made me wonder. in single player the left analog stick is walk by default, no matter how much you press it forward, and you have to hold x to run and tap x to sprint. but in multiplayer if you press the stick more than halfway forward you start to run, and holding x is to sprint.. just like it was last gen. i really hope its that way this time around too. for single and multi player.
No. Last gen games made your character jog if the stick is pushed all the way, and walk if pushed halfway. Sprinting was done by holding or tapping the X button. In GTA IV, your character always walks when not holding X. Holding it makes it a jog, while tapping it makes him sprint. In multiplayer, it was the same as last gen.
