GTA Online Celebrates the Fourth of July With Discounts, Money Bonuses, and More

When it comes to holiday celebrations in video games, there are few games better at it than GTA Online. Since December 2013, just two months after GTA Online had released, Rockstar has been celebrating holidays within the game in an extravagant way. For Christmas 2013, the developer made it snow and put up Christmas trees and gave out holiday outfits to fans. This has remained a tradition every December, allowing fans to enjoy a winter wonderland in Los Santos. This trend continued with a Valentine's Day update and eventually an Independence Day update which saw the release of an America flag-themed monster truck, fireworks, and more.

Ahead of the holiday weekend, Rockstar Games has detailed how fans can celebrate the Fourth of July in GTA Online. The developer confirmed there will be a plethora of discounts, double and triple GTA$ rewards for certain missions, a $200k bonus for completing all of the Independence Day Special Land Races, and much more. You can check out the full list of Independence Day festivities below.
