GTA Online and Red Dead Online Players Can Expect Snow and Freebies This Holiday Season

Players of Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online, two popular online titles by Rockstar Games, can expect free gifts this holiday season along with snowfall, among other additions. Rockstar Games has been working hard for the past couple of months in an effort to release more content for the two games.

Red Dead Online players especially have been looking forward to new content, as the game had been experiencing a content drought for quite some time. Fortunately, the holiday/winter season is the perfect opportunity to add extra content for players to enjoy.

As for Grand Theft Auto Online, the game recently received a major update in the form of the Cayo Perico Heist, so it’s not particularly in need of new content. Still, new additions are always welcome. The sizeable update is considered to be the biggest one so far for GTA Online, as it introduces a brand-new nightclub called The Music Locker and new music that players can listen to.

Of course, the most exciting part about the update is the new luxurious private island known as “Cayo Perico.” Elite members of society may go there to have fun and party, but little do they know that the island isn’t as perfect as they may think.

On the other hand, Red Dead Online recently upgraded and expanded the Naturalist and Bounty Hunter roles available in the game. Among other things, the online experience now has Legendary Animals and brand-new bounties.

For this festive season, however, players of both online titles will be able to experience new content that has more of a holiday theme.


If players go ahead and sign onto their GTA Online account, they will find that San Andreas is completely covered in fresh snow. To make things even more immersive, even the local vendors and in-game establishments have festive decorations and are selling a variety of items that fit the holiday season.

According to the Rockstar Games Newswire, players can also check out Legion Square if they want to take a picture of the Christmas tree situated there, or perhaps take a quick look at the festive decorations that adorn the interiors of their in-game Penthouses.

In addition, players who have been wanting to get a new car should visit Southern San Andreas Super Autos so that they can acquire the Grotti Brioso 300 for free. Although, keep in mind that this offer is only available from December 22 through December 30, 2020.

Meanwhile, Red Dead Online fans will also earn free gifts this season. Similar to Grand Theft Auto Online, the vendors and streets of Saint Denis are adorned with holiday decorations. Traversing through the game won’t be as easy as before due to the heavy snowfall, but players who visit the Pause Menu’s Benefits Page will be able to obtain free items that will help them power through the chilling weather.

There’s more where that came from though, so check out the Red Dead Online Newswire for a more detailed list of the freebies and new content.

In other news, Rockstar Games launched a standalone version of Red Dead Online in early December. Given the exciting new content released for the game, we expect that the franchise will see a boost in playerbase, especially since the standalone edition will remain at $4.99 at least until February next year.
