We still don’t have Heists yet (early 2015, guys), but Rockstar has pushed out another smaller update to help us celebrate Christmas in Los Santos! What does this update include? A bunch of nice, explosive holiday devices, cars, outfits, and more. All of this info can be found at the Rockstar Newswire.
Explosive Stocking Stuffers
New weapons for this holiday season include the Homing Missile Launcher to solidify the fact that you love to annoy and piss off the others in the lobby, and the Proximity Mines. Thankfully these items won’t only be available for holiday celebration. They will be permanently available to acquire and keep.
One of the best things about a consistently updated game are weather changes, and Rockstar has assured us that we will be seeing some winter weather again this holiday season. “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
More holiday themed outfits will be available to complement your already insane styles. Holiday pajamas, ugly Christmas sweaters, scarves, hats, masks, and more can be added to your inventory and be worn through January 5th.
Four All-New Vehicles
Some new toys will also be released to help you race away on those snow-filled roads. Vehicles include a Hot Rod Christmas Ratload, the Slam Van, and the Massacro and Jester sports cars with new Race liveries. These vehicles can become a permanent addition to your garages… especially since you can now own a third piece of property!
Holiday Special Crate Drops
Holiday Special Crate Drops will be dropping more frequently until January 5th, packed with things to collect in your inventory. This includes a few of the rare vintage GTA tees that some may have missed in past Social Club Event Weekends as well as some brand new ones.
Christmas Day Gifts
Rockstar has promised some nice surprises on Christmas Day, December 25th. “As you’re relaxing in you Los Santos apartment beside your Christmas tree, make sure to check your inventory for a few extra gifts.”
New Year’s Fireworks
Once Christmas disappears, it’s officially time to celebrate the approaching New Year. The Firework Launcher and Firework rocket ammo will be reappearing and will be available until January 5th. If you can’t afford any of it, no worries! You can grab one for free on these special days: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, or New Year’s Day.
#FestiveSurprise Snapmatic Contest
This holiday season welcomes you to show off your photography skills. “Take your merriest Christmas Crew family photo or capture the insanity of the New Year’s Party you’re hosting in your Los Santos condo – or any other amazing, amusing, or beauteous #FestiveSurprise action. In January, we’ll pick our five favorite shots and award the photographers with GTA$1M prize.”
