As a multiplayer mod for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto, GTA RP (Grand Theft Auto Roleplay) allows players to soak themselves in this iconic open-world game.

How to Play GTA RP on PS4
GTA’s player-driven gameplay engages players in unpredictable narratives. GTA RP is noticeably different from the standard version. Players who jump into one of the user-created RP servers get into roleplaying, which directly affects how other players and NPCs operate & behave in the game.
Grand Theft Auto Roleplay requires the installation of necessary mods such as FiveM and RageMP, which again allow the creation of isolated multiplayer mod-supporting servers. Hence, unfortunately, it is not possible for players to play this on PS4 without using mods and joining a private server.
Wait, don’t lose your heart. There are some unofficial private servers like United Network Roleplay that allow players to roleplay on PS4. However, do note that they may not offer the same experience as the PC version.
Let’s go through the steps now.
Note: Make sure you have a Discord account alongside the GTA V app on your PS4 console. Also, ensure your username on Discord matches the one you use on your PS4.
1. Search for a good Discord server such as the United Network Roleplay that allows GTA Roleplay.
2. Click on Accept Invite and follow the onscreen instructions to join the server.
3. Click on the 》get started button in the welcome message.
4. Now click on the green tick button to accept the age requirements.
5. In the WELCOME TO UNITED NETWORK tab, go to the 》server-rules and then to the 》code-of-conduct channels and go through the rules and regulations you need to maintain in the server.
6. Once read, go to the 》gta-roleplay-console channel where you will find an invite to a different server. Click on Join.
7. Click on Complete at the bottom.
8. Tick the checkbox next to I have read and agree to the rules and click on Submit.
9. Move to the 》choose-console channel and click on the PS4 icon.
10. Then move to the 》choose-deparetment channel and select the department you want to start roleplaying as.
That’s it! Now you have to keep a check on the 》schedule channel for training sessions. For more details, you can also go through the training-server-announcements channel.
Once trained, you will be able directed to the main PS4 server for roleplay.

Do You Need PS Plus to Play GTA RP on PS4?
Yes, users require PS Plus subscription to play GTA 5 RP on PS4 and PS5. There are a few tiers provided; each one allows you to receive more bonuses. You can get a membership directly through your PlayStation account or can purchase the premium version through prepaid cards.
