According to new update files, Rockstar is planning a Halloween surprise in GTA Online: see the new masks, vehicles and face paints here.


GTA modder Yan2295 has been doing some digging into tomorrow’s GTA Online update. According to Yan, update files have already hit the servers and they contain more than just the autoshop and Lowriders.

The modder says he found something named “mphalloween” among the files. Rockstar hasn’t announced any plans for public events to coincide with the holiday yet, and could be planning a surprise.

12 new masks were also found, alongside a file called “ped overlays” – presumably standing for pedestrian. Here they are:


Two new vehicles (“btype2” and “lurcher”), as well as a new weapon (a flashlight, costing $500), were also dug up. (Thanks, taltigolt).

The update goes live tomorrow but Halloween isn’t until October 31. These new event-exclusive items could only appear on that day or sometime prior. We’ll keep an eye out.
