The annual GTA 5 Online festive surprise update is now live! Rockstar Games have already released new vehicles, items and modes in to GTA and have mentioned other free unlocks available for players who log in on certain days. They have also announced that snow will be coming to GTA this weekend so stay tuned! In addition to the festive surprise 2017 items, Rockstar have added a variety of discounts to GTA Online which are live through to 1st January, more information to follow.
The New Ubermacht Sentinel Classic:
The new Ubermacht Sentinel Classic is now available in GTA Online and can be purchased for $650,000 from the Southan San Andreas Super Autos website. This new sports car is the first weekly continuation of the Doomsday Heist Update.
Here’s what Rockstar Games said about this new vehicle in their official Newswire Post:
“Remember when a road legal coupe could moonlight as a performance rally car and no one batted an eye? Back before power windows and satellite radio, when it was just you, the car and the road. The Ubermacht Sentinel Classic is the no-nonsense, lightweight bucket of speed you’ve been dreaming about and it’s here to rocket your ass back to the glory days. Pick up yours today, exclusively from Southern San Andreas Super Autos.”
Rockstar Games have added a new Adversary Mode into GTA Online called Occupy. This mode is the latest addition to GTA Online, where victory is obtained by securing and holding capture zones across the map and fending off the circling vultures on the other team. It’s also pretty important to know what you’re doing with a flying attack bike, but don’t get distracted; whichever team holds more zones will gain points faster and the first team to hit the target score wins the round. This mode has Double GTA$ & RP active through to 8th January!
