Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

Rockstar Games is dropping an "Independence Day Special" for Grand Theft Auto V Online in which you'll be able to download a red white and blue monster truck and motorcycle and blow stuff up with muskets and rocket launchers. U-S-A! U-S-A!

Rockstar Social Club has the full rundown of all the patriotic weapons you can wield in the game via online download because they know What The People Want, dammit.

...They might be right, who doesn't wanna raise hell in a mullet and American flag t-shirt?

There's new character clothing, amusement park rides, and seventeen new GTA Online Jobs to play in the download.


From Rockstar:

This special seasonal content will be available to redeem in-game until Mid-July (we will announce a specific redemption expiration date soon). The automatic update for the Independence Day Special also includes additional game tuning updates and other adjustments, including the new On Call Matchmaking function. This new option allows players to accept a Job invite and continue playing in Freemode until that Job fills up, reducing time spent idle while waiting for a Job to start. For the complete list of all the fixes and tuning updates, visit the Rockstar Support site.

To download the Independence Day Special, fire up your online-connected PS3 or Xbox 360 and start GTAV. You'll be prompted to download the automatic update (1.15) and Xbox 360 players will also be required to download an additional compatibility pack upon entering GTA Online.
