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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
