GTA 5 Online Independence Day Update: All Hail the Mullet!

liberatorThe good folks at Rockstar have become (in)famous for their unique, tongue-in-cheek take on society and social conventions, particularly those of the US, and that looks set to continue with the release of their Independence Day update for GTA 5 Online.

To be released tomorrow, in time for the eponymous holiday weekend, we can expect such American Classics (with a slight twist) as:


  • Mullets
  • Mahoosive “Liberator” Monster Truck
  • Antique (high-powered) muskets
  • “Made in the USA” T-Shirts
  • And, my personal favourite, FIREWORK ROCKET LAUNCHERS

The update will also allow you to ride the Ferris Whale and Leviathan Roller-coaster, unlock new properties in Paleto Bay and Vinewood Hills, as well as the opportunity to eschew a real-world firework party in favour of holding a virtual one in your own in-game backyard.

Brought to you in association with the guys at Ammu-Nation, this really does seem like it might be a Fourth of July weekend that goes with a (particularly large, firework rocket launchered) BANG.

Enjoy it, y’all!!
