Grand Theft Auto Online: Halloween Surprise

Posted on October 29 2015, 7:50am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

From now through November 16th in GTA Online, special Halloween treats will be available to the residents of Los Santos and Blaine County on PS4, Xbox One and PC. And no tricks here – once acquired these special items will remain in your inventory, even after November 16th.

Navigating the freeways of Los Santos just got more terrifying with the addition of these two ghastly new vehicles. Show your dark side while getting around in the Lurcher Hearse and the Fränken Stange – both available for a limited time only, along with 20 ghoulish new Bobbleheads that can be added to the dashboard of any customizable Lowrider.

Strike fear into your opponents by donning one of the horrific new masks now available in the Monsters section of Vespucci Movie Masks. If you and your Crew are tackling a Heist between now and November 16th, a new Halloween mask category will be the default option on all Heists. 30 Spooky new styles of Face Paint are also available to help you get into the spirit of the season.

Enjoy thrills and suspense with the lights out in this tense new Adversary Mode for up to 8 players. Run, hide, and fight to survive in the darkness as the player designated as the Slasher stalks their prey with a Shotgun. Use your new Flashlight to navigate if you dare, but be careful not to reveal your position or you’ll quickly become prey. Survive for 3 minutes and you’ll get the chance to return the favor with a Shotgun of your own.

Stay tuned for details on this weekend's special Halloween activity, including a livestream this Friday October 30th at 5pm ET featuring the Rockstar Broadcast team and special guests to be announced.

    Shout out to @b-nArmz, @BlastingOnFools, @Reaper_Woody excited about the new Halloween Surprise Cars, Masks and Adversary Modes!

    To @SkilledxStriker, @KOLE1982-, and others asking, earlier this morning, there was a brief issue where the Halloween Surprise Flashlight and Masks were not properly being added to players' inventories. We have since corrected this, and these are now working without issue. For anyone who experienced this issue, please see this Support article for more info: :

    To those inquiring, we've also added the artwork from today's Halloween Surprise announcement as official desktop wallpapers, social media backgrounds and avatars. You can grab it in all popular sizes at

    For @Gh0stOfDeath, @nateis75 and others asking about why this update is not available for PS3 and Xbox 360, as previously mentioned here on the Newswire (, future content updates such as this are only possible on the newer and more powerful platforms. As there is not enough memory available to add the game on to the older systems, we cannot make any more meaningful content updates without putting the entire game at risk.

              For those who brought the face paints during the DLC time, do you still own the face paint?
              For instance, you can go back to the barber shop and get a different DLC face paint you purchased anytime you want to or are you unable to do that due to the content being removed completely?

                @James_Bond_o007 I have the Halloween facepaint & yes you could change it, I always change it back and forth, once you purchase it, its always available

                    This sounds crazy but I am patiently waiting for Halloween 2016 just to get these rides. I wish when they released seasonal content there was a way to still get it when you miss the window.

                      Rockstar please can you add these seasonal items in the game for valentines day, yes it sounds weird but please because a large majority of gamers including myself missed out on the halloween update due to the fact that most of your new 2016 gamers got ps4 for christmas. Again i know halloween and valentines day have no correspondence at al but if there is an valentines dlc may you please at least add these special vehicles so we can have just 1 just one more chance to get these exclusive vehicles. we appreciate everything you have been doing to keep gta running smoothly

                        @z7-11killer Can you guys add Halloween surprise with the Valentines surprise because I got the Xbox One for Christmas, and I missed out on the Halloween surprise. I'm sure many other people on also in my position. I would even be willing to buy shark cards to get the in-game vehicles and other things. Thanks

                      I would love you forever, rockstar, if you brought the masks and face paints back. At the very least the face paints. I couldn't sign into gta v online during the event and I'd be happy shelling out some cash for dlc. Hopefully someone at rockstar is reading this, and makes these available.

                            I accidentally missed out on the Halloween update on my PS4. I went online and found out about the slasher modes, which I love to play. I thought the costumes were very interesting and very cool. I was wondering why I couldn't buy anything from the Halloween update. Rockstar, if you guys are reading this, can you please bring back these Halloween items for me and any other people who are asking the same thing? We don't want to wait a whole year for the next Halloween. It would definitely mean a lot.

                              Do those like me and others that just got XBox Ones like for Christmas, /seriously/ have to wait until /next/ Halloween to get the vehicles; Hearse and Stange? The masks and face paints? Can't they be available to us even for a larger, out-of-season cost or something? Not being mean but, is it really fair to the late comers to next gen GTA 5 to have to wait an entire year for the update to return?
