Grand Theft Auto V Adds New Mode as Snow Begins to Fall in San Andreas
Rockstar Games‘ smash hit, Grand Theft Auto V, is getting into the holiday spirit by giving players a sack full of goodies. Players can expect snow, new game modes, bonuses, gifts, discounts, and more.
As of December 23, players may notice snow falling in the city of San Andreas. The snow will be falling over the city through the weekend, ending on the evening of December 26. This will allow players to enjoy an in-game white Christmas as well as take part in snowball fights. The snow is also “reported” to return the weekend of New Year’s Eve. Rockstar’s blog has outlined everything you have to look forward to.
With a rare snowfall phenomenon hitting Southern San Andreas (and all forecasts calling for it to last throughout the weekend and into Monday), there’s sure to be blood in the snow this holiday with the launch of Juggernaut, a new Adversary Mode pitting armor-clad behemoths and their teams against each other in an all-out brawl for dominance. And while Santa may have his own preferred method of transportation, get ready to trounce Dasher and Dancer with the Comet Retro Custom upgrade, compliments of Benny’s Original Motor Works. To further make spirits bright we’re dishing out major bonuses and gifts to all, including Double GTA$ & RP opportunities, plus discounts, weapons, outfits and more.
The new Adversary Mode, Juggernaut, will gear two opposing players up in heavy armor and chainguns as they take on the role of Behemoth. The description of Juggernaut is as follows:
It’s a clash of the titans in Juggernaut, the latest adrenaline-fueled Adversary Mode to hit GTA Online. In this brutal war between two opposing teams, the Juggernaut is your greatest asset and your only liability. As an Attacker, you’ll need to flank, swarm and successfully execute the opposing team’s heavily-reinforced Juggernaut – while protecting your own – to take the win. If your team is unable to wipe out the opposition’s Juggernaut in time, Sudden Death rules go into effect and everyone becomes a Juggernaut. First kill wins though, so you’ll want to be aggressive in trying to take first blood.
To celebrate the launch of Juggernaut, Rockstar is offering Double Grand Theft Auto V cash (GTA$) and reputation points (RP) in the mode now through Jan 1st. Players have lots to look forward to on Christmas day for anyone who logs in to GTA Online with the Unicorn Mask and either the White Graphic or Blue Check Pajamas. Gifts Include:
