Earlier this month, developer Rockstar Games launched its Independence Day Special, or update 1.15. Now, the New York City-based company warns players that time is running out to buy the downloadable content in “Grand Theft Auto Online.”
“There is less than one week left to get the limited-time content made available as part of the ‘GTA Online Independence Day Special’,” Rockstar said on its Newswire on Monday.
“So if you have yet to acquire vehicles like the Sovereign motorcycle and the Liberator monster truck, weapons like the Musket and Firework Rocket Launcher, or any of the patriotic tees and masks in-game, then now's the time. The seven new properties, the ability to ride the Ferris Whale and the Leviathan Roller Coaster, and the 17 new Jobs will all remain open permanently.”
The special DLC launched earlier this month, and Rockstar promised it would keep players updated on the expiration date of the seasonal content.
The downloadable features include two new vehicles, the Sovereign motorcycle and the Liberator monster truck. Two new weapons were also added – the high-powered Musket and the Firework Rocket Launcher.
Rockstar also added seven new properties to the Dynasty 8 rolls, featuring new locations in Paleto Bay and Vinewood Hills. These locations offered plenty of yard space where users could host their own Fourth of July fireworks shows, and were able to use up to 12 varieties of fuse lengths to customize their own displays.
The developer also added two new amusement park rides at the Pleasure Pier – the Ferris Whale and the Leviathan Roller Coaster.
New clothing and personal features were also part of the “GTA Online” update. Players can now don a “Made in the USA” T-shirt, a backward mullet or an eagle animal mask that celebrates the national bird.
“The Firework Rocket Launcher along with its ammo will be available again during future holidays and other special events when fireworks are traditionally let off,” Rockstar explained. “At the beginning of any holiday or special event where fireworks are available, players who purchased the Firework Rocket Launcher previously will receive one free full refill of ammo per qualifying event in order to make sure you can properly celebrate.”
Players have less than a week to obtain the content. They will also have the opportunity to take part in double RP events during this week, though no specific times or dates have been announced.
