Grand Theft Auto Online has a 'Festive Surprise' today

Those looking to celebrate the holidays with mayhem and carnage can now do so with a new update for Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto Online is ready to get festive with snow and stocking stuffers filled with deadly weaponry. Rockstar has announced the game's latest update, called Festive Surprise.

The holiday additions are outlined on Rockstar's Social Club site. Los Santos will be covered in snow, where players can open up some special stocking stuffers made up of new Ammu-Nation weaponry. The Homing Missile Launcher and Proximity Mines are now available for purchase as permanent inventory items. Meanwhile, Christmas gear like holiday sweaters, masks, hats, and more are also available to wear through Monday, January 5. Many of these pieces can be found throguh Holiday Special Crate Drops, which will sprinkle into Los Santos throughout the game. A special drop will be available in Los Santos apartments on Christmas Day.

Those looking to make a clean getaway after an armed robbery can also pick up four new vehicles, including the Hot Rod Christmas Ratloader, the Slam Van, the Massacro sports car, and the Jester sports car.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
