Rockstar Games recently announced that the Festive Surprise 2017 has hit GTA Online as well as a new car and mode!
Those who are GTA Online regulars know that every year during Christmas, Rockstar add a bunch of new holiday themed items to the game as well as letting it snow in the world of GTA Online.
Here is what the Festive Surprise includes:
- Snow will be coming to GTA Online this coming weekend (along with the ability to have snowball fights!)
- The Firework Launcher returns to GTA Online
- Range of Christmas masks (Elf, Gingerbread Hockey Masks etc)
- Christmas clothing (for example – Reindeer suit, Christmas jumpers, hats etc)
- FREE unlocks in the coming days (such as a new Krampus mask on Christmas Eve!)
Rockstar have also announced the release of a brand new vehicle for GTA Online. Here is the synopsis:
Remember when a road legal coupe could moonlight as a performance rally car and no one batted an eye? Back before power windows and satellite radio, when it was just you, the car and the road. The Ubermacht Sentinel Classic is the no-nonsense, lightweight bucket of speed you’ve been dreaming about and it’s here to rocket your ass back to the glory days. Pick up yours today, exclusively from Southern San Andreas Super Autos.
The Rockstar Newswire also mentions the latest mode to be added to GTA Online – OCCUPY!
Here is the synopsis:
Land is the most valuable asset of them all and you can’t afford to let any wannabe invaders encroach upon yours. Occupy is the latest addition to GTA Online, where victory is obtained by securing and holding capture zones across the map and fending off the circling vultures on the other team. It’s also pretty important to know what you’re doing with a flying attack bike, but don’t get distracted; whichever team holds more zones will gain points faster and the first team to hit the target score wins the round. Time to see who really runs this town. Jump into Occupy now and earn Double GTA$ & RP through January 8th.
