This shouldn’t really be a surprise to any of our readers, but Rockstar has just officially announced the already leaked Halloween Surprise DLC for GTA Online. What could possibly compensate for the lack of “surprise” though? It’s out right now!
The DLC is also everything the leaks made it out to be so no need to be disappointed on the content front. One interesting piece of new info however, is that the new vehicles and gear introduced in this DLC can only be acquired until the 16th of November, after which you won’t be able to get your hands on them (until next year’s Halloween – we hope). So we think it’s time to grind for cash, and hold off on buying those fully tricked out lowriders! Don’t worry though, as once you’ve acquired them, the items and vehicles will remain yours and usable after the 16th and beyond.
As we’ve known for a while now, the two new vehicles are the Lurcher and the Franken Strange, a funeral hearse and a hot rod, respectively. Rockstar also added 20 new bobble head customization items, two of which have been leaked as a Frankenstein’s monster and a werewolf.
A wide variety of new masks have also become available, and the halloween mask selection is the default setting for heists until the 16th. If masks aren’t your thing, then you can choose from the 30 different face-paint options.
The new adversary mode, Slasher, throws a veil of darkness over Los Santos and arms victims with flashlights, and one slasher with a shotgun. The slasher has 3 minutes to hunt the unarmed victims, who can either stay in shadows, but not see anything, or use their flashlight and reveal their position. However, once the 3 minutes are up, the “victims” might become the hunters, as they are blessed with shotguns of their own.
Rockstar has also announced that they will be holding a special Halloween weekend event and livestream. Stay tuned for more info on that.
