Rockstar Games has just announced the GTA Online Winter Update 2023, which is going to add a lot of brand-new content to this title. That includes a new business, vehicles, drift races, and much more. In the newswire post released earlier today, the developers shared information about what fans could expect from the upcoming major DLC.

While Rockstar hasn’t shared an exact release date for this update, it is expected to be released on December 12, 2023.


GTA Online Winter Update 2023 will add a brand new business, along with other content

As can be seen in the post above, Rockstar Games announced the brand new GTA Online Winter Update for December and offered some exciting details about it. As expected, the developers are going to add one more brand new business linked to vehicle robberies and Red’s Auto Parts, a brand new purchasable yard.

Yusuf Amir is set to return to the series with this DLC and is going to help players in this new high-stakes venture. This character was last seen in Grand Theft Auto 4: The Ballad of Gay Tony. This is how Rockstar described his return and role in the upcoming Winter Update:

“Yusuf still lusts after the finer things in life — chief among them adding to his collection of luxury import vehicles by any means necessary. With the help of his cousin Jamal, you’ll be charged with planning and executing intricate, high-stakes robberies under the cover of Red’s Auto Parts, a new purchasable salvage yard where you’ll call the shots. Sell the best of the best to Yusuf or salvage your boosted vehicles for parts — the choice, and the cash, is yours.”

GTA Online Winter Update adds drift races and other details

Drift races will debut in the Winter Update, along with new drifting modifications available for select new and older vehicles, as well as the new Drift Race Series.

Like previous DLCs, the developers have also announced a few improvements that fans can expect this time:

  • Animals roaming in the Southern San Andreas (PS5 and Xbox Series X/S)
  • A brand new The Vinewood Club Garage (GTA+ exclusive)
  • More convenient options to organize and manage vehicles from the Interaction Menu (PS5 and Xbox Series X/S)

With the GTA 6 trailer expected to be released soon, the upcoming Winter Update seems to keep current players invested in Los Santos till the next game arrives.
