An article posted earlier today says that Rockstar Games has plans of “adding full Share Play support to Grand Theft Auto 5” and while the rumors are vague and unsubstantiated it could mean a couple different things. Firstly, that you would be able to invite another PlayStation 4 user to try GTA 5 on your console, even if they didn’t have the game. Secondly, and less likely but far more awesome is the possibility that you could invite your friend to jump into your game with you, either as a second player in the single player story or to join you in online play.
Being able to to give a PSN friend a chance to try the re-release of GTA 5 before buying it is already a great feature that is very likely to be supported–Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare are the first and only exceptions to Share Play thus far–but the real kicker would being able to invite a friend to play with you in your game, online or off. While I’m sure it would take some significant work to make this feature possible, Rockstar has already committed solid efforts into the GTA 5 re-release with the addition of full-featured First Person Mode and a slew of additional content. Multiplayer Share Play isn’t unheard of either as Destiny allows for you to invite another PS4 user to play with you in online multiplayer sans a second copy of Destiny.
It’s unclear whether or not GTA 5 will actually feature some sort of drop in and and out multiplayer courtesy of Share Play it’s safe to say that if it did happen, that experience would push a few PS4 users hesitant about returning to Los Santos, to hop the fence and buy into the re-release which comes out November 18th.
