Holiday Gift DLC

Hey!

I was just about to go over to my friends house for a gtav game night. I went into my storage to copy over my save game to a usb and found a file under gtav called "holiday gift" I believe it was 3MB. Anyone else found this? I would take a picture and upload it here but I'm absolutely hopeless at stuff like that so maybe someone else could upload a photo and confirm this? What could this mean? I'm hoping for snow and some really cool new vehicles and possibly some nice christmas car horns but maybe I'm dreaming

The CTF update was 3MB. Maybe that was it.

On Se7vensin there are pictures holiday clothing which gives you santa and elf outfits which is awesome.
There is also pictures of LS coverd in snow but I have not payed much attention to it. As that sounds to good to be true.

Seems legit or a really good mod.

Didn't some modders(?) get a hold of the beach bum dlc early because it was on the disc? Maybe this was part of the recent update.

Technically a double post, since I was the last to post in this thread, but it appears that the christmas clothes are now available!




More Details: http://www.rockstargames.com/newswir...day-gifts.html

Quote:
Season's Greetings from Los Santos. Just in time for Christmas, please enjoy a bounty of Holiday Gifts that transform Grand Theft Auto Online into a West Coast winter wonderland.

SPECIAL SEASONAL ACCESSORIES THROUGH JAN 5th
Right now, you'll find special limited-time, holiday-themed items in the clothing shops and at Vespucci Movie Masks like Santa hats, Elf jackets and shoes, Snowman masks, Reindeer antlers and more. All these items are available to don until January 5th.

SAN ANDREAS SNOWFALL – IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE
Travelers to Los Santos and Blaine County in GTA Online now through Christmas Day will also be greeted by a the very rare sight of a San Andreas snowfall, making for (even more) hazardous driving conditions.

SNAPMATIC SHUTTERBUGS’ BEST XMAS EVER

Spruce up your selfies and share your holiday photos with a host of updated Snapmatic features that have just been released including all-new photo Filters, Borders, and Facial Expressions. There's also a new Depth of Field Effect and a Meme Creator feature. All the new Snapmatic features are here to stay even after the Holiday Season (and are also available to use in Story Mode as well). You can access the Filters, Borders, Facial Animations, and Depth of Field Effect while you're taking a photo (Facial Animations and Depth of Field are only available in Self Portrait Mode). To use the Meme Creator, just pause the game and select the picture you'd like to meme-ify from the Gallery, then hit Square / X to add meme text.

Share your best holiday season Snapmatics with the tag #XmasInLosSantos and we may feature some of our favorites here at the Newswire in early January.

HOLIDAY SALE DEALS ON SELECT VEHICLES, WEAPONS, APARTMENTS & MORE (THRU JAN 5th)
We've also got special holiday discounts right now through January 5th on select weapons, vehicles and more to help you lay down some jolly season’s beatings.

Make sure you put Grenades, Tear Gas and Sticky Bombs on your Christmas list as these explosive stocking stuffers are all half-price.
You can also get 30% off select luxury sedans (ridiculous giant red bow not included) including the Super Diamond, Vapid Fugitive, Benefactor Schwartzer and Ubermacht Zion.
If you'd like a new apartment to trash for your Crew Christmas party, then take advantage of 25% off the aptly named Tinsel Towers apartments 45 and 29.
We've also got half price discounts on Hinterland and Yeti boots, musical horns on vehicles, green and gold weapon tints, and to keep you warm in the Blaine County snowstorms there's 50% off Winter hats, berets, Hinterland Boots and Yeti Boots.

We hope these gifts help you all enjoy a fantastic holiday season in San Andreas and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thanks to the entire worldwide GTA community for your amazing support in 2013 and get ready for big things to come in 2014!

Anybody able to buy the Santa hats? I looked all over and they aren't in any shops. Wondering if I missed something or if it's a glitch.

Checked and nothing. The other stuff shows up in the stores, just not the hats. Going to try and do another restart.

Yeah, it does kind of suck. Lot of people are going to be busy with other things. Course them making it only on Christmas will probably boost the players a bit. I know I'm going to "have" to log in for a little just to check the snow out. With that said, should be Christmas Eve too at least.

So the Santa hat, there is an actually Santa hat right? It's not just the Santa mask? The picture on there site shows just the hat, but I still can't get it.

i'm assuming you're using a female character right? if you are there are no santa hats for female characters only male. only thing you'll get that's close to a santa hat is that giant santa mask..

Why did I just see in the loading screen "Holiday items will disappear from your inventory January 5th?

So we don't even get to keep these?

Mhm! I was rather excited at first, surely I didn't read the above post tl;dr, but I saw part of it on the loading screen and at the very bottom that caught my eye. I see no reason they have to take the stuff away. R* is basically being the grinch except they are telling us they are taking the stuff away.

I was using a female character. I actually have one of each, swapped to my male one and there were the hats. That's really stupid. Guess that solves the mystery though, thanks for sharing that.

It does appear to be snowing, guess they did it earlier for us? I can confirm it works in Survival too, pretty cool to do Bone Yard in the snow. It's like a Winter Wonderland of death and carnage.
