The Grand Theft Auto franchise has had a slew of different weather effects through its various iterations – one of which we never saw however, was snow. That was not until Grand Theft Auto V, when we were introduced to this specific weather condition in only two parts of the game.
For a short time yesterday, the city of Los Santos was inundated by snowfall. This effect was unfortunately only scheduled for Christmas and has since been removed. Many GTA Online players are clamoring for the effect to be extended or re-added as an optional weather pattern.
Other goodies include special santa hats, elf jackets, and shoes, as well as new Snapmatic filters and discounts on specific vehicles and weapons including grenades, tear gas, sticky bombs, and luxury sedans. These items and deals are available until January 5th, 2014.
Grand Theft Auto Online launched on October 1st, 2013.
