Gamers who were thinking of taking a break this holiday season to spend more quality time with friends and family might want to rethink that resolution due to a fun and festive update made to Grand Theft Auto V. The game now allows snow fighting to help get people into the Christmas spirit. More than that, the characters are also decked out in holiday outfits including ugly Christmas sweaters, Santa hats and more.
A clever gimmick, the Grand Theft Auto V update shows that companies can get creative in various ways to appeal to what is happening in their customers' lives at any given moment. In addition to the snowy festivities, the game also includes new weapons and cars. Yet the developers warn players about the snowballs, "Be forewarned, those icy little suckers can pack a wallop."
