Rockstar Games has announced a winter update to GTA Online. The patch allegedly is expected to be released on December 12.

One of the highlights is the return of Yusuf Amir, whom we met in Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony. Players will carry out orders for him to steal luxury cars. At the heart of these actions will be a purchasable junkyard, or Red's Auto Parts plant acting as a front for criminal activity.

Another major change is the addition of wild animals in free-to-play mode for those playing on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The wild animals will appear in southern San Andreas and will be deadly.

For fans of fast driving, the studio has prepared a new arcade mode - drift racing. Additional tracks will appear in the game, and after a visit to the LS car club, you will be able to customize your vehicle and drift to your heart's content in free mode.

The update will also bring a number of smaller changes, such as:

  • a new garage for GTA owners playing on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S;
  • improvements to the interaction menu, including for players using PS5 and Xbox Series X/S;
  • more reputation points for competing in chases and street races in the LS Club;
  • the ability to buy copies of other players' cars on PS4, Xbox One and PC;
  • birthday gifts for all players' characters.

In addition to the aforementioned changes, the update will introduce several festive additions, including music tracks, holiday modes, creator tool updates and many holiday surprises. Players can also look forward to content for Rockstar Games' 25th anniversary.

As a final reminder, the first days of December are expected to see the release of a trailer of the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto VI.
