There are new weapons in the form of a new homing missile launcher and proximity mines, as well as some new vehicles with the Hot Rod Christmas Ratloader, Slam Van, and the Massacro and Jester sports cars. GTA Online gamers are now welcome to a third garage to store their vehicles, with the new weapons available at the in-game Ammu-Nation.

There's also some seasonal clothing included with the "Festive Surprise" update, something that includes scarves, masks and holiday pyjamas for free. These items will continue to be made available through to January 5, with special holiday crates dropping "frequently" between now and then.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
