Our ol’ buddies at Rockstar have always known how to do the holidays right.
Last year, the whole of Los Santos was enveloped by snow for a few days. Driving conditions ‘round Grand Theft Auto way were already treacherous enough, what with constant drive-bys and dickish players running down newbies in their tanks, but why not? It looked pretty damn cool.
If you’re going to spend the holdays anywhere, why not right here? Nothing says festive funtimes like crushing someone into highway-jerky with their own car and careening into the sunset with no effs given. So, Grand Theft Auto V, what do you have for us this Christmas?
Another seasonal selection of downloadable extras, naturally. It’s a similar deal to that Independence Day event they had, which offered cut-price explosives and other tools of destruction to all (just like our forefathers wanted). First up is two new weapons, courtesy of Ammunation: the homing launcher and the proximity mine.
If you’re in the market for something a little less deathtacular, why not an extra property? You can now own up to three, and they’ve thrown in a Christmas tree to decorate them with. There are also two big ol’ mothereffin’ beefy man-trucks to add to the vehicle roster, in the shape of the Vapid SlamVan and the Bravado Rat-Truck.
Then there’s the usual crop of clothing and accessory items. You know where they’re going with that. Hit Kotaku for footage of the new content in action.
