Who said Christmas time had no gaming news? I did, but that doesn’t matter because we got a Festive Surprise for Grand Theft Auto Online today. It features a couple of new things, so lets not waste time with non-sense.

In this update, you get new weapons in the form of Homing Missile Launcher and Proximity Mines. There’s even snow ball fights that packs a punch. You also have access to new vehicles: Hot Rod Christmas Ratloader, Slam Van, Massacro and Jester race liveries. But wait, there’s more! You get some festive gear like the Gingerbread Mask, the Ugly Christmas Sweaters and so much more holiday items filled with joy and love, or not.

That’s not all you get. You’re now able to purchase a third property which upgrades your potential space to about 30 vehicles and 9 bikes depending on your set up. There will be rare snow days and, if you’re there on Christmas day, you will be getting some free gifts. With all these new features, it should keep you busy until the Heists, well I hope. Personally, I can’t wait to play this update and check out the sweet gear. Tell us what you think in the comments below!
