GTA Online’s Weekly Update Includes Free Independence Day Items, Easy Path To $200k

A new update is now live in GTA Online and the theme is quite clear. With Independence Day just around the corner in the United States, Rockstar Games is going all out.

There are a couple of free freedom-themed gifts, extra rewards on Independence Day Land Races, and discounts on July 4 content. Before fans get too excited, though, the discounts on Independence Day content don’t contain anything too thrilling. There are mostly cosmetics available for sale that players can use to don their character in July 4-themed attire.

In addition to all of the Independence Day festivities, there’s also the standard content that comes with every update in GTA Online. There are new vehicles available in the form of the Prize Ride and Podium Vehicle as well as new Test Track rides for fans to try out. Players can also earn double and triple the GTA$ and RP on select missions, all of which are viewable below.
