Rockstar has detailed its Independence Day Weekend Event for GTA Online. The event will offer up bonus GTA$/RP and in-game discounts, as well as hosting a special UK vs US stream.
Kicking off today and running until July 6th, the event will let you bag double GTA$ and RP when playing in the Independence Day Special Event playlist. In addition, Airstrikes will be 75% cheaper to call in and Ammu-Nation is offering 25% off ammo for RPGs, grenade launchers and Miniguns. Calling in large vehicles using Pegasus Lifestyle Management is also free during the course of the event.
On top of all this, Rockstar is also inviting players to send in their best Snapmatic shots for a chance to win one million GTA$. All you have to do is tag a shot with #INDEPENDENCEDAY to enter.
"You're commemorating the Fourth of July this weekend, we want to see those Snapmatic pics showing your love for Old Glory,” said Rockstar. “Whether you're rolling over foreign compact cars in the Liberator monster truck or setting off some fireworks in the yard of your new Paleto Bay abode, share your most creative, amusing or beauteous patriotic snaps for a chance to win GTA$1M and an AMERICA vanity license plate for your in-game vehicle."
As for the America vs. Great Britain stream, it begins at 2pm ET/ 7pm GMT and sees the US team represented by YouTuber Lui Calibre and the UK team represented by GTA V O’Clock. The event will be commentated on by Lazlow and the Rockstar Broadcast studio team.
"We'll be battling through a Crew Head to Head playlist featuring all new Jobs from The Independence Day Special," said Rockstar. "As always, we'll be streaming the show across the Social Club Events page, the Rockstar Games Twitch channel and our YouTube page.”
