Rockstar Games reveals new rewards and content coming to GTA Online to help celebrate the upcoming trio of holidays including Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day. Even after 10 years, GTA Online remains a money-making powerhouse for Rockstar and Take-Two, thanks in large part to a population of players that continues to appear in huge numbers. To help keep these players logging in, Rockstar continues to keep GTA Online updated with new content on a constant basis, sometimes adding new gear, game modes, and mechanics on a limited time basis.
With most online, live-service-style games, holidays are a common real world event that developers can lean into to add new content for players. GTA Online has a long history with seasonal style updates, such as the most recent one for the Holiday seasons, bringing back snow, snowmen, and other items typically associated with that time of the year. However, with its latest update announcement, Rockstar is embracing the February holidays by revealing a variety of new content coming to all players starting this week.
Is GTA Online Worth Playing in 2024?
Grand Theft Auto Online is Rockstar’s biggest running title, but its longevity may be worth questioning over a decade after release.
Over on the Rockstar Newswire, GTA Online players received a wealth of information on all the new rewards and cosmetics coming to the popular online title. Starting with the Lunar New Year, GTA Online players can pick up two new dragon masks, a Regal and Midnight version. Players who may have missed out on recently added collectibles, namely the Wooden Dragon Mask, Red Lunar New Year Dress, and Black Lunar New Year Tee, will have another chance to unlock this. Finally, any player that logs in between now and Feb 14 will also get a Red Envelope gift of GTA$188,888 that is delivered right to their Maze Bank account within 72 hours.
Even More Free GTA Online Gifts
While the shortest month of the year, February has even more holidays to celebrate, like Valentine’s Day. While GTA Online is no stranger to previous Valentine’s related updates, this year will reward players who log in from now until Feb 14 with Red and Yellow heart shades. For those who take on the Bodyguard role, they can earn the Purple Heart shades as well. Finally, for those who are into Carnival, playing GTA Online anytime over the next week will reward players with the Carnival Sun Dress, Carnival Bandana, Bigness Carnival Sports Tee, and Bigness Carnival Bucket Hat.
In addition to everything above, Rockstar has no shortage of gifts and discounts players can opt into, including:
- Shotgun Wedding and Till Death Do Us Part multiplayer modes 3x GTA$ and RP.
- Increased odds of finding diamonds when playing The Diamond Casino Heist.
- Red and Yellow designed Truffade Adder (Super Car) Lucky Wheel reward.
- Transform Races earn 2X GTA$ and RP.
- Free Dragon related tattoos when visiting parlors in game.
With GTA Online continuing to feature a healthy community, many have begun to wonder what lies in store for the online mode once GTA 6 launches next year. Considering how much money the online game has managed to secure Take-Two, its unlikely that the publisher would outright ditch or leave it behind. While it’s unknown if a newer version is being readied or the existing mode will ultimately be pulled forward along with GTA 6, it’s clear that players will have some sort of online community to call home.
