Function: The GKLocalPlayer class is a special subclass of GKPlayer that represents the authenticated player running your game on the local device.
At any given time, only one player may be authenticated on the device; this player must log out before another player can log in.

Your game must authenticate the local player before using any Game Center features. Authenticating the player ensures that the player has created an account and is connected to Game Center. To authenticate the local player, retrieve the shared instance of the local player by calling the localPlayer class method, and then call the authenticateWithCompletionHandler: method.

You can see whether the local player is authenticated by reading the local player's authenticated property. If authenticated is true, then the local player's other properties are valid, and you can call other Game Center methods.

Call the loadFriendsWithCompletionHandler: method to retrieve the player identifiers for the local player's friends.
Subclass of the GKPlayerMBS class.
