Playing Grand Theft Auto with two players requires setting up a local network. Those playing the game must also allow others to connect to their computer.

  1. Choose Gather Network

    Select Gather Network from the list of available options at the GTA startup screen. This allows you to host a game locally for your friends to join.

  2. Pick settings

    Choose your character, city and game type from the list of available options. These will be the game settings for all players joining your local network game.

  3. Launch the game

    Confirm the network settings and the game will enter the Gather Network waiting area. Others with your IP address can now connect using their copy of GTA.
