Grand Theft Auto Online Independence Day Update Offers New Features, Including a New Supercar and Mode

GTA Online continues to add new features with the Independence Day Update.

on July 1, 2017 12:04 PM

Rockstar’s new update for Grand Theft Auto Online is centered around Independence Day and offers up a generous amount of new content.

With Independence Day almost upon us, the new Dewbauchee Vagner Supercar will be available alongside Dawn Raid, the latest Adversary Mode for GTA Online. Players of Dawn Raid will also receive Double GTA cash and experience through July 10th, and Rockstar has additional discounts at Docktease on three Yacht models and modifications.

To add patriotic flair to this week’s updates, Rockstar also has Independence Day-themed liveries for MOCS and Mk II weaponry, with discounts on firework launchers, the Liberator monster truck, the American themed Western Sovereign motorcycle, and unspecified “classic outfits.” All of these can be purchased at 25% off their regular prices.

The most significant addition is the Dawn Raid, a 6v6 mode with limited light where teams parachute into an area and seek out a transmitter which has been hidden. Once a team finds it, they then have to bring it to another area to evacuate. Rockstar notes you’ll also be “armed to the teeth,” so there should be the opportunity for some serious firefights throughout all of this.

Plus, if you login before July 10, there are two new free t-shirts to pick up, as well as discounts on stunt suits and outfits.

Rockstar Games doesn’t seem to be slowing down when it comes to post-launch support for Grand Theft Auto Online, even with Take-Two Interactive hinting at ramping down new features for GTA Online. You can download the gunrunning update now.
