Christmas is coming to GTA Online's Los Santos and Blaine County

From Rockstar Games:

Season’s Greetings from Los Santos. Just in time for Christmas, please enjoy a bounty of Holiday Gifts that transform Grand Theft Auto Online into a West Coast winter wonderland.


Right now, you’ll find special limited-time, holiday-themed items in the clothing shops and at Vespucci Movie Masks like Santa hats, Elf jackets and shoes, Snowman masks, Reindeer antlers and more. All these items are available to don until January 5th.


Travelers to Los Santos and Blaine County in GTA Online on Christmas Day will also be greeted by a the very rare sight of a San Andreas snowfall, making for (even more) hazardous driving conditions.

All-new filters and a host of additional Snapmatic updates are also part of the GTA Online Holiday Gift.


Spruce up your selfies and share your holiday photos with a host of updated Snapmatic features that have just been released including all-new photo Filters, Borders, and Facial Expressions. There’s also a new Depth of Field Effect and a Meme Creator feature. All the new Snapmatic features are here to stay even after the Holiday Season (and are also available to use in Story Mode as well). You can access the Filters, Borders, Facial Animations, and Depth of Field Effect while you’re taking a photo (Facial Animations and Depth of Field are only available in Self Portrait Mode). To use the Meme Creator, just pause the game and select the picture you’d like to meme-ify from the Gallery, then hit Square / X to add meme text.

Share your best holiday season Snapmatics with the tag #XmasInLosSantos and we may feature some of our favorites here at the Newswire in early January.


We’ve also got special holiday discounts right now through January 5th on select weapons, vehicles and more to help you lay down some jolly season’s beatings.

Make sure you put Grenades, Tear Gas and Sticky Bombs on your Christmas list as these explosive stocking stuffers are all half-price.

You can also get 30% off select luxury sedans (ridiculous giant red bow not included) including the Super Diamond, Vapid Fugitive, Benefactor Schwartzer and Ubermacht Zion.

If you’d like a new apartment to trash for your Crew Christmas party, then take advantage of 25% off the aptly named Tinsel Towers apartments 45 and 29.

We’ve also got half price discounts on musical horns on vehicles, green and gold weapon tints, and to keep you warm in the Blaine County snowstorms there’s 50% off Winter hats, berets, Hinterland Boots and Yeti Boots.

We hope these gifts help you all enjoy a fantastic holiday season in San Andreas and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thanks to the entire worldwide GTA community for your amazing support in 2013 and get ready for big things to come in 2014!
