GTA New Update: Rockstar Games has released the new winter update for GTA Online. The devs recently made a newswire article announcing a major upgrade for the game, which would introduce new features and alter the gameplay significantly over the next few weeks.
Fans can anticipate a tonne of new material over the next few months since the upcoming winter DLC 2022 will be released in multiple parts. So, now that we know that a new winter update for GTA Online is coming in 2022, let’s take a look at the five biggest changes that gamers may anticipate.
Free New Vehicle
Rockstar has announced that later this month, the Declasse Tahoma Coupe, a two-seater civilian retro-style lowrider, will be added to GTA. It looks like it was inspired by the Chevrolet Monte Carlo and will likely be included in the upcoming winter DLC.
The Declasse Tahoma Coupe will be given out as a reward for taking part in The Heists Challenge that took place last month, so say the developers. For a limited time, all players can get it for free. The designers have also released a teaser image of the vehicle, which hints at a wide variety of exciting add-ons.
Major Improvements to Gameplay
Rockstar has already made huge quality-of-life upgrades to GTA Online this year, and things are only going to get better in the future.
Specifically, “this December’s GTA Online update will introduce a wide range of new improvements to Freemode and beyond, many of which were submitted directly by players via the GTA Online feedback page,” according to the blog post.
Here is a rundown of everything that was updated in GTA Online for December.
Faster access to your most used iFruit contacts is possible through the Interaction Menu, where you can choose which contacts to show and which to hide. The Business Sell Mission can be initiated with the Benefactor Terrorbyte in any sort of Session, even Invite-only Sessions.
Visit The Diamond Casino & Resort’s Management Office and take on Agatha’s Casino Story Missions independently (these missions previously required at least 2 players).
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will include ray-traced reflections – producing real-time reflections on numerous surfaces — via the Fidelity Mode graphics setting.
Your Garage will be stocked with new goods more quickly than ever before. Some types of Custom Weaponized Vehicles can now be utilised in Races; however, weapons will be disabled when not in use.
Bicycles will be added to the list of vehicles that can be requested from your Garage when phoning the Mechanic. With the completion of the introduction race, players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S will have access to Hao’s Special Works.
The new #GTAOnline DLC, “Los Santos Drug Wars”, will be available on December 13!

Payouts on Smuggler’s Sell Missions will be permanently increased, and completing Vehicle Cargo Sell Missions during Public Sessions will now grant you a High Demand Bonus, making it consistent with all other commercial activities.
The GTA$ value of all Shark Cards has been increased, meaning you can get more of what you want, faster. Shark Cards purchased in GTA Online or through any platform store have had their values increased by 20% to 25% as of today.
This is in addition to the existing 15% bonus GTA$ for special GTA+ Member Shark Cards. Dax, the new person we’re meeting in this screenshot, features prominently in the updated content narrative.
Rockstar has promised that the GTA Online update will arrive “later this month for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC,” though no specific date has been given.
The developer also included a short blurb on the game’s upcoming downloadable content. The developers at Rockstar have promised that we can “Take a walk on the wild side of Blaine County in the first instalment of a massive multi-part update taking you all across the expanse of Southern San Andreas, featuring some familiar faces and a new troupe of entrepreneurial misfits on a mission to expand the minds of the citizens of Los Santos, one trip at a time.”
In addition, there will be a slew of brand-new vehicles, international happenings, Contact Missions, and more. They say, “Stay tuned for much more very soon…” at the end of their newswire article. It’s likely referring to a trailer and description of the update that will be released this month, despite fans’ hopes that it’s a promo for GTA 6.

The developers have assured players that ray-traced reflections on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S|X systems are on the way, which will significantly improve the game’s visual quality.
As part of the update, a new feature is being added that will enhance the game’s dynamic lighting and reflections, and it can be accessed through the Fidelity Mode graphical options.

High Deward Bonus
As part of the forthcoming Grand Theft Auto Online winter update, Rockstar will award a High Demand Bonus for completing Vehicle Cargo Sell Missions in a public session. Because of this, players can increase their profits from the Vehicle Cargo business.
As part of 2016’s Import/Export update, the necessary Sell Missions were introduced to the game. They are routine for many gamers throughout the world, and the addition of this perk should make them feel more worthwhile. Those benefits will be a component of the 2022 winter update for the game’s economy.
