If there’s one thing Grand Theft Auto Online loves to do, it’s get seasonal. (If there’s another thing, it’s refuse to give us our freaking heists like the hairy bastards they are, but let’s not get into that right now.) If you ventured onto the streets of Los Santos around Christmas, you’d have seen more damn snow than any Tinseltown replica should experience.
But what of today? Surely Rockstar won’t let the 4th of July –the drunkiest, firework-iest, independence-iest day of the year– go by?
Worry not, gentlemen. While old Queen Lizzie bitches about the fact that she doesn’t own half the damn world any more, here’s what Grand Theft Auto has in store. Today through Sunday, the Independence Day Event Weekend sets in. It offers extra cashtacular and experience, a contest or two, big angry monster trucks for free, and a huge discount on airstrikes. Just as our noble forefathers intended.
For more on this, and the chance to win an amusingly patriotic vanity plate (“AMERICA”), hit Gamespot.
