The Grand Theft Auto Online New Year update is here, bringing an upgraded vehicle and brand new Twitch Prime rewards to Rockstar Games’ ultra-successful title.

GTA Online sees players take on various tasks in multiple game modes, which can be completed individually or with a group of people, and you can earn weapons, vehicles and more through progression of the online multiplayer game.

In a blog post from Rockstar, they go through what players can expect to experience in the earliest days of 2020, celebrating the New Year in true GTA style.

Classic car returns, with a twist

The first change is an upgrade to a popular vehicle, the Dewbauchee JB 700W Sports Classic.

The car returns to GTA Online, but this time it’s much more interesting than before, with weapons attached that allow players to truly make an impact as they cruise the streets of Los Santos. It is available to purchase now from Warstock Cache & Carry.

In addition, if you have played GTA Online on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, you will be rewarded with a pair of festive bodysuits. The Yellow Reindeer Lights Bodysuit was available on December 31st and the Neon Festive Lights Bodysuit on January 1st.

The Dewbauchee has had a pretty impressive upgrade on its previous iteration.

Twitch Prime rewards

Twitch Prime rewards are also available to those with accounts. You can pick up Pixel Pete's Arcade property in Paleto Bay for free, but your Twitch and Rockstar accounts need to be linked to earn it.

There's also a free New Year's gift available to collect from Rockstar and if you need help claiming it, we compiled this handy guide to help you get them. On both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day players can also receive a care package that includes the Firework Launcher, 20 Firework Rockets, plus full Snacks and Armor.

If none of these rewards or upgrades tickle your fancy, there are still plenty of holiday discounts available in GTA Online, so you can get exactly what you want at a reduced price.
