GTA Online: New Years Update Adds More Freebies

Rockstar Games have released a New Years' update for GTA Online which adds a whole host of new and exciting features.

Hopefully, you logged in over Christmas in order to capitalize on GTA: Online's Christmas event, which added snow, cars, and freebies to the game.

It's certainly been a fun-filled period for GTA players, with the recent release of the Cayo Perico heist earlier this month.

The festive period might have come and gone for another year, but Rockstar Games are still in the giving spirit.

The latest update for GTA: Online is the New Years' update, here's what you can expect to see when you next log in.

GTA Online: The Omnis

The most notable addition to GTA: Online is the Omnis. The Omnis is a brand new addition to the Diamond Casino and gives players the chance to score one with a lucky spin.

The Omnis is by no means the most expensive of GTA: Online's range of cars and customizable vehicles.

The vehicle itself is worth around $700,000 in-game, however, it's still going to save you some money in the long run.

If the classic, vintage rally car look is something you enjoy, it's well worth trying to get your hands on the Omnis whilst you can.

GTA Online: New Year Changes, Free Rewards And Bonuses

The weather will be changing in GTA: Online with the removal of the snow in GTA Online's New Years Update.

The latest update thaws out the map and returns things to the usual sunny sights we are used to seeing in GTA: Online.

Sadly, players will have to wait until next year to experience snowy Los Santos again.

It's quite unfortunate that players only get to experience the snow for a very brief window of opportunity in GTA: Online.

It would be much better if over December the snow was a permanent in-game feature.

However, in order to alleviate some woes, Rockstar has included a new event which will reward the player for their participation.

The new event involves collecting a series of treasure chests which are placed at random points around the map.

Once the player returns these chests, cash rewards will be available to collect.

Furthermore, there are a bunch of free unlockable items for the player to grab. If you get the chance, you should definitely pick up the following items from any weapons or clothing store:

  • Sessanta Nove Monogram livery for Revolter, Speedo Custom, Menacer
  • Bigness Tie-dye Sweater
  • Bigness Tie-dye Sports Pants

RP Bonuses and Discounts

With the New Year update, there will also be the addition of double cash and RP rewards. This will only be available to those who are playing the In & Out Adversary mode.

There is a bunch of heavily discounted items available for a whopping 40% off this week. Furthermore, if you happen to be a Twitch Prime Gaming member then you can get an additional 10% off.

  • Casino Penthouse Garage
  • Arcade Garage
  • Nightclub Garage Levels
  • Arena Garage Floors
  • Dynasty 8 Garages
  • Office Garages
  • MOC Personal Vehicle Storage
  • High-End Apartments Ramp Buggy
  • Armored Kuruma
  • Phantom Wedge
  • Taipan

Make sure you take full advantage of GTA: Online's New Years update whilst you can.

Players might have a new installment of GTA to look forward to at some point, as a GTA 6 teaser has possibly been discovered in a recent trailer.

Even if there is a new game coming, GTA: Online still remains one of the most popular and profitable multiplayer experiences for Rockstar Games.

So players can look forward to continued events, updates, and support far into the future.
