It’s that time of the year again.

The Festive Surprise has just gone live in GTA Online.

That means you’ll find a Christmas tree in your apartments as well as a massive tree in the center of Los Santos.

Check in every day for a free gift from Rockstar. Previous years have coughed up special t-shirts as well as ammo and snack bonuses.

You can expect snow to hit Los Santos too, although that will be at random intervals, and when it does you’ll be able to make and throw snowballs.


A more permanent addition is the new Adversary Mode Occupy for up to 16 different players across six different maps. There’s double RP and cash for that mode from now until December 5.

The Sentinel Classic is also available to purchase, after being included in last week’s massive Doomsday Heist update.


Here’s all the discounts and additions to GTA Online over the festive period:


Arcadius Business Center – 30% off
Fort Zancudo Hangar 3499 – 30% off


Yachts – 30% off (All models)
