You may want to invest in a set of snow tires if you intend to frequent Los Santos this holiday season, as a winter weather warning has been issued by Rockstar.
That’s right, snow is on its way to GTA V for an undefined amount of time over the new couple of weeks as a part of what Rockstar is calling their ‘Festive Surprise’. The content doesn’t stop at snowfall and the subsequent snowball fights, either. We’ll also be able to get our hands on new weapons, new vehicles, some very festive clothing options, and even the fireworks launcher is making a comeback for the new year. To top it off, Rockstar is allowing a third slot for real estate as of the title update that went live last week.
The complete list of what will be coming and going can be seen below, as can a few images of the festivities in action.
EXPLOSIVE STOCKING STUFFERS
Heat up your season’s greetings with brand new items stocked at Ammu-Nation: a new Homing Missile Launcher and Proximity Mines are here just in time to make spirits bright. These items will be permanently available to acquire and keep.
Those dreaming of a white Christmas are in luck as the forecast calls for the extremely rare phenomenon of San Andreas snowfall to hit on a few special days this holiday season. Be on the lookout and ready to round up your Crew for a friendly snowball fight, but be forewarned, those icy little suckers can pack a wallop.
FREE SEASONAL CHRISTMAS GEAR AND MASKS
Add some merriment to your mayhem with a slew of holiday pajamas, ‘ugly’ Christmas sweaters, new scarves, hats, masks and more are now all available absolutely free to add to your inventory and wear now through Monday January 5th.
MAKE A DASH IN FOUR ALL-NEW VEHICLES
Treat yourself to some new toys this holiday season and fill your garage (now that you can own a third property and garage, also part of today’s Title Update) with four all-new vehicles to purchase – including a tricked out Hot Rod Christmas Ratloader, the sturdy Slam Van, and the fast and flashy Massacro and Jester sports cars with all new Race liveries. These vehicles will be permanently available to acquire and keep.
HOLIDAY SPECIAL CRATE DROPS
Keep your eyes on the sky as Holiday Special Crate Drops will be dropping frequently now through January 5th, stuffed with goodies to collect for your inventory – including a few of the rare vintage GTA tees that you may have missed in some of our Social Club Event Weekends over the past year as well as some brand new ones never before available.
CHRISTMAS DAY GIFTS
On Christmas Day, December 25th, as you’re relaxing in your Los Santos apartment beside your Christmas tree, make sure to check your inventory for a few extra gifts.
SET OFF SOME NEW YEAR’S FIREWORKS
Ring in the New Year with a bang – the Firework Launcher and Firework rocket ammo are coming back and will be available to acquire and use from Christmas Eve until Monday, January 5th. You can score one for free on four special days: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day.
