GTA Online Independence Day update adds a monster truck, new properties, more

Posted on July 1, 2014 AT 05:27am

Rockstar has released a new update for Grand Theft Auto Online that adds a monster truck, fireworks, and several new properties to the game.

The Independence Day Special update adds the Sovereign motorcycle and the Liberator monster truck, alongside the Musket and Firework Rocket Launcher. There’s also seven new properties to purchase in locations such as Paleto Bay and Vinewood Hills, and 12 varieties of fireworks to purchase and let off in your newly acquired gardens. If you’re after something a little different, you can head down to the Pleasure Pier where you can ride the “Ferris Whale” and the “Leviathan Roller Coaster.”

If this wasn’t enough, there’s also a ”Made in the U.S.A.” t-shirt, a backwoods mullet, and several new animal masks. Be quick though as the content in this update will only be available to acquire until “mid-July.”

Finally, the update also brings a number of new features and fixes to the game. You can check out the full list of patch notes here.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
