Winter is coming to Grand Theft Auto V, as Rockstar Games has announced the details for GTA Online's new holiday-themed update which is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Starting off, players will notice that lots of local businesses in Los Santos, as well as the Diamond Casino & Resort, have been updated with wreaths, holly, and Christmas trees. Players can purchase all manner of festive clothing, accessories, and weapons from stores around Los Santos.

Additionally, it will begin snowing in Los Santos soon, and, as in previous years, players will be able to take part in snowball fights.

Rockstar also announced that it will deliver gifts to GTA Online players throughout the holiday season in the form of things like festive clothing, fireworks, weapons, and armor, plus "all new toys." Everyone who plays GTA Online before January 1 will get a number of holiday-themed clothing items, including red swirl pajamas and some nice ugly sweaters.

Those who log into GTA Online on December 24 specifically will receive the Green Reindeers Lights bodysuit, a firework launcher, and 20 rockets for it. Everyone who plays GTA Online on Christmas Day, meanwhile, will get a nice gift in the form of the Invade and Persuade RC tank.
