Aliens And Slashers Arrive To GTA Online For Halloween


After mysterious UFO sightings around Los Santos, the Halloween Surprise event has landed in earnest. Hop into Grand Theft Auto Online for some spooky fun, bonuses, activities, new encounters in Freemode, items and discounts.

When roaming around the open world of GTA Online, keep an eye out for large UFOs descending from the heavens, or a spooky car following you through shady neighborhoods. While the Halloween Surprise event lasts, aliens and slashers may beset players anywhere, anytime in the game.

As part of Rockstar's efforts to reduce bloat in GTA Online, many missions and activities are rotated in and out cyclically. To help celebrate the year's scariest holidays, all of the Halloween and horror themed missions, Adversary Modes and other activities have been made available which aren't accessible otherwise. These returning activities, like Slasher, Come Out to Play, and Condemned, are paying out double while they're around.

Welcome an all new, suitably violent cabinet to your personal arcade or penthouse. Camhedz is a fast-paced and graphic shooter game you can play inside GTA Online. Meanwhile, the aliens haven't only invaded Freemode - Alien Survival is also back, and also paying out double. The same bonus applies to Business Battles, and if you manage to score some cargo, you'll also unlock the Green Checked Round Shades and Green Glow Necklace for free.

Speaking of free clothing, continuing the in-game celebrations of Grand Theft Auto 3's 20th anniversary is the Baseball Bat Tee which you can get simply by logging into the game. You'll also unlock the Republican Space Ranger Livery for the Pfister Comet S2 at the same time. Getting attacked by a psychopath usually isn't something to hope for, but if a roaming slasher targets you, you'll also get a Twilight Knife T-shirt.

On the vehicle front, this week's Test Track rides are the Annis Remus, Vulcar Warrener HKR, and Karin Previon; the Prize Ride challenge reward is the Dinka RT3000; and the vehicle spinning on the podium of the Diamond Casino & Resort is the The Peyote Gasser.

Players can grab a Casino Penthouse this week at 30% off including all upgrades and customizations, and buy laser weapons at half price - you'll need them against the UFOs. Additional discounts include thematic Halloween items such as the Albany Lurcher at 40% off and regular vehicles like the Bravado Gauntlet Hellfire and the Vapid Caracara 4x4 at 30% off.
