Rockstar has announced the extension of its festive surprise Christmas gifts for GTA 5 Online players, following outages on PSN and Xbox Live networks.
The Christmas gifts were supposed to end on Christmas Day, 25 December 2014, but now players will be able to receive these gifts for some more days following the inability of many players to log into GTA Online due to the DDoS attack on PSN and Xbox Live. Players have to be connected to these two network for playing the GTA 5's online mode.
"Due to issues with PSN & XBL connectivity, we're extending the GTA Online Festive Surprise Christmas Day inventory gifts for the time being," said a Twitter post from Rockstar Support.
It is not yet known for how long Rockstar will extend the gifts. But the sooner players sign in to the online session the better their chance to claim. When players are logged in to GTA Online, the Christmas gifts are automatically displayed in the inventory section.
However, Rockstar has not extended the Snowfall feature that was introduced in the new Christmas DLC, reported Kotaku.
Unlimited Money Glitch after 1.22 Update
A new unlimited money glitch has surfaced following the recent 1.22 update that had numerous bug and glitch fixes in GTA 5 Online. Reports of the unlimited money glitch points out that the developer was unable to fix them "100%."
How to Make the Glitch work
YouTuber, Sharmarke Gamer has posted a video that guides players on how to make use of the glitch in GTA 5 Online, Gamepur reported.
- Steal a car or take any car on the street and go to Los Santos customs and tune it. Make the car as expensive as possible.
- Get a friend and make him take the wheel while you occupy the passenger's seat next to him.
- Now, unplug the network cable from the console and router and then re-plug it.
- Now Drive the car into the garage to 'SAVE' it. But before you drive it in, your friend must leave the car.
- Login again in the game and either join your friend or have your friend join you.
- So when you join again, the car will be duplicated. Players can repeat this process and make some extra money.
