Don’t forget to keep an eye out on the weather within the next few days either, as the Los Santos forecast is calling for snow. Those who remember playing during last year’s GTA Online Christmas event got to see the snowy world and luckily, it’s coming back for a few days. So get decked out in your holiday gear, head out and have a snowball fight with your friends.

The update also contains four new vehicles to purchase, the Hot Rod Christmas Ratloader, the Slam Van, the Massacro sports car and the Jester sports car. Once purchased, the vehicles will be available permanently.

During the duration of the event, there will be special holiday crate drops with extra goodies, playing on Christmas day will net you a few extra gifts and the Firework Launcher and Firework rocket ammo are making a reappearance. They will be available for purchase on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve or New Year’s day.

The ‘Festive Surprise’ content is available today on every console with the download of Grand Theft Auto V latest title update. Happy holidays!
