GTA Online Christmas update arrives with explosives and new cars

GTA Online Christmas update 2014 1

Festive goodies have been added to Grand Theft Auto V, along with some not-so-festive ones.

Rumours of the Christmas update in GTA Online surfaced earlier this week, and it appears that those rumours only partly hold truth at the moment.

Users on GTA Forums are reporting what's included in the new update which is said to weigh in at around 1.23 GB in size.

There are reports that you can now own three properties in GTA Online, and screenshots have been shared from the story mode of GTA V showing proximatey mines and a homing launcher in the Ammu-Nation store. There's a Christmas tree is some apartments, as well as new festive clothing too.
