The 4th of July will soon be upon us, with this many American will be looking to celebrate the birth of their countries independence. This can take on many forms but as with all thing American you can guarantee it will be over the top and involve explosions, god bless you murica.
Now we brits don’t usually celebrate this holiday, we don’t have an independence day we prefer to give other people theirs, but it seems that Rockstar is trying to change that with a release of a limited time content package for GTA 5, The package includes many American themed clothes and haircuts ranging from American flag t shirts to a “backwoods mullet” as they put it. There is an eagle mask to “let you inner freedom fly” and two vehicles; a liberator monster truck with patriotic American flag colour scheme and the sovereign motorcycle following the same colour scheme.
Obviously no GTA expansion would be complete without new ways to kill your friends in the most freedom inspiring patriotic ways possible, of course a high powered musket for that American Revolution feel and the firework rocket launcher for when you want to see someone explode in to a glorious ball of red white and blue fire.
Seven new properties have also been added which come with adequate yard space for your very own 4th of July fireworks show, and in true GTA style there are enough of them to create a spectacle that would make even the most battle-hardened Republican Space Ranger shed a tear.
This special seasonal content will be available to redeem in-game until Mid-July. To download the Independence Day Special, just boot up your 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.
