As a special treat for fans, Rockstar has decided to celebrate the holidays in Grand Theft Auto 5 with a host of special limited features for GTA Online.
Over on the Newswire, Rockstar detailed its Christmas-themed attractions coming for a very limited time to GTA Online. First, from now until the end of Christmas Day, it'll be snowing all over Los Santos. Additionally, there are a whole bunch of new masks to buy at Vespucci Movie Masks, including Santa, snowmen and reindeer masks.
Snapmatic will also be getting a new update bringing new filters and a depth of field effect to the in-game picture app. You'll also be able to change facial animations in selfies, or use a new meme creator for even more editing fun. These features will also be available in story mode.
Most importantly, GTA Online will be having a sale of sorts with different weapons and vehicles discounted to make the holidays a bit more tolerable. Grenades, tear gas and sticky bombs will be half off. The Super Diamond, Vapid Fugitive, Benefactor Schwartzer and Ubermacht Zion will all be 30 percent off. Winter-themed clothing will be 50 percent off, and select apartments at Tinsel Towers will be 25 percent off. If you somehow still haven't used all of your stimulus, sounds like this sale (running through Jan. 5) will be the perfect time for spending.
