Grand Theft Auto Online getting into the Holiday spirit

More On: Grand Theft Auto Online

Grand Theft Auto Online has kicked off their Holiday event today and brings with it tons of updates including new weapons, gear, vehicles and a forecast of snow. 

The first big update to GTA Online is that now players will have the ability to own a third property, which allows you to own up to 30 cars and 9 bicycles. For all you big spenders in GTA online, this is your chance to show off just how much money you have and how much everyone doesn't. Hey just like real life! 

Next, Ammu-Nation will have some new weapons for you as well including a Homing Missile Launcher and Proximity Mines. 

Snow in Los Santos is extremely rare, so on a few special days, GTA Online will be a winter wonderland. No exact dates for the snowfall yet but if I had to guess, I would say Christmas Day would obviously be one of them. We got snow last year on Christmas Day so I would assume they plan on doing it again. 

Of course it wouldn't be a GTA Online update without a plethora of new clothing. Going with the holiday spirit, you can deck out your avatar with pajamas, ugly Christmas sweaters, scarves, hats, masks and more. These clothes will all be free as long as you add them to your inventory through January 5th. 

Of course Santa Clause will be making his way to Los Santos. How naughty or nice have you been this year? Be sure to check out your inventory on Christmas Day as there are a few special gifts that will await you. 

Finally, to cap off the holiday season, you can ring in the New Year with the Firework Launcher and Firework Rocket Ammo which are coming back and will be available to acquire and use until Monday January 5th.
