Surprise! Rockstar is gearing up for the holidays a little early with their Festive Surprise update for GTA Online. It’s that most wonderful time of the year in Los Santos and you can take part with new clothing items, snowball fights, and more!


There's plenty to see and do including....


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.


SNOW DAYS
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 the 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.

#FESTIVESURPRISE SNAPMATIC CONTEST
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, Rockstar will pick five favorite shots and award the photographers with a GTA$1M prize. Tag your entries with #FestiveSurprise now through January 5th to be eligible. Official rules.

    Is anyone else having technical faults with GTA V on the PS4? I suffered a fault while playing recently. CE - 34878 - 0. I backed up my game data and then initialised my PS4 according to the directions given to correct the fault. Now, I lose 100 rounds of ammo from my Gusenberg Sweeper, MG and Combat MG every time I load and it seems that only Michael can now earn a trophy. I recently completed the Mackenzie Airfield missions as Trevor - and nothing... no trophy. I donât know if it is the game or the console at fault, but it would have to be one of the most bitterly disappointing experiences of my gaming career. Has anyone else encountered these problems?
