‘GTA V’ Snow Returning For The New Year Alongside Online Holiday Gifts

Rockstar Games is giving fans a third chance to pick up the holiday inventory gifts that were handed out to Grand Theft Auto V players over Christmas. The developer announced from their official Twitter support account that they will once again offer the free items to GTA V users that access GTA Online on either Wednesday or Thursday of this week. Also, beginning Tuesday night, Rockstar Games will cover San Andreas in snow for the next few days.

“In case you missed out, the GTA Online Festive Surprise inventory gifts will be available again on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.”

Originally intended as a bonus to those who logged onto Grand Theft Auto V‘s online multiplayer mode on Christmas Day, Rockstar Games provided users with a another chance to receive the free seasonal items within GTA Online this past weekend due to the ongoing issues that plagued both Xbox Live and the Playstation Network over the holidays. This allowed fans who were unable to connect to the GTA V online servers a second opportunity to receive the surprise in-game gifts for GTA Online.

The Rockstar Support website also has a banner informing players that the GTA Online Festive Surprise inventory gifts will be will be returning later this week. As the Inquisitr reported after Rockstar Games provided the first extended chance for GTA V players pick up their holiday gifts, fans also started an online petition to bring back the limited snow that covered Los Santos on Christmas Day since the Xbox Live and PSN outages also affected users’ ability to experience the weather change in GTA V. The request has now gathered the support of hundreds of players and Rockstar Games has listened.

Now that the developer has now decided to give GTA V players yet another chance to acquire the free in-game Christmas gift items for GTA Online, fan desire to see snow return to the game continues to grow. After all, this was the first time that the holiday weather event took place on the newly released next-gen editions of Grand Theft Auto V and a large percentage of players missed out on the limited snowfall as a result of recent online connectivity issues. The developer announced that snow will officially return to GTA Online starting tonight.

“There are reports of another Los Santos snowstorm tonight which will last through New Year’s Day.”

The Christmas gifts will be offered once again to GTA V players across all platforms on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Also coming to Grand Theft Auto V in early 2015 will be the PC launch of the game, as well as the anticipated release of online heists.
