When Will The GTA Online Halloween Update Release?

The Halloween antics may have already begun in GTA Online, but the full week-long event is expected to release on Thursday, October 28th, 2021.

This date is based on two things, the first being that GTA Online updates are released every Thursday. The second reason is that previous Halloween Events have always begun in GTA Online on the Thursday before Halloween.

GTA Online’s Halloween Event will likely last for one week, meaning it will come to an end on Thursday, November 4th, 2021. However, the Halloween fun has already begun in lead up to event week.

What Will Be Included In GTA Online’s Halloween Update?

A few weeks ago, strange happenings started occurring in Los Santos as UFOs began appearing around the map. They can be found between the hours of 10PM and 3AM, but if you get too close you’ll notice a lightning strike, and if you’re on a vehicle it won’t work anymore.

Then in the most recent weekly update, new Halloween free mode events arrived, as well as 2x GTA$ and RP on select Halloween adversary modes. But what else can fans expect before Halloween comes to an end?

Well, if previous years are anything to go off of, fans can likely expect new modes, discounts, vehicles, face masks, and more. To get an idea of what to expect when the next update arrives, check out the 2020 Halloween Newswire on the Rockstar Games Website.
