Rockstar Games has announced that it has launched the holiday update for Grand Theft Auto Online dubbed Festive Surprise 2016.


As reported on earlier today, new content introduced this year include several new outfits, a new Super Class vehicle and new weapons for people to use, including a holiday-themed pajama outfit, unicorn and beast masks and festive sticky bombs.
Other new content included in the update are new colorful bodysuits, featuring illumination settings to glow, pulse or flash, and a new bold pinstripe smoking jacket.

The holiday update also re-introduces all clothing items released in the previously released Holiday Gifts and Festive Surprise updates, including the Santa outfit, festive sweaters and festive hats.

Also making a return this year are holiday decorations in player housing and in the normal game world, the Fireworks Launcher weapon and the snow weather type, which results in altered vehicle handling.

Aside from the new content the game also sees the return of double GTA Dollar & RP rewards in the Turf Wars Adversary Mode and the introduction of a new premium Stunt Race titled Plummet.
