Rockstar Games today has announced new information regarding Grand Theft Auto Online. The latest update, now available across all platforms adds snowfall and more.

According to the press release, this week, gamers who log into Grand Theft Auto Online can walk into a winter wonderland while roaming through Southern San Andreas. If you’re looking to drive through the snow, but afraid to damage your wheels from all the icy roads, the new update also introduces a new vehicle titled the Benefactor Streiter, a sophisticated 4×4 is now purchasable at Southern San Andreas Super Autos.

Of course, there is much more to this mini end of the week update, as the developer has also announced that several gifts are also up for grabs. Now until Monday, December 25, if you login into the game, you will receive several gifts to celebrate the holiday, including a free Albany Hermes Muscle Car.

In other Grand Theft Auto Online news, earlier this week, Rockstar Games released a new update that includes this annual Grand Theft Auto Online Festive Surprise and offers a slew of holiday-themed unlocks, which are available now until January 5. On top of that, last week the game’s most extensive update, The Doomsday Heist was released.

Grand Theft Auto Online is available now via Grand Theft Auto V on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
