Environmental Changes

  • During the week, snow covered the entirety of Southern San Andreas, complete with ice fog and snowfall conditions, which reduced long-range visibility. These changes also applied to lobby game modes.
  • Numerous properties and locations had Christmas decorations added, including Christmas trees and lights. Locations included owned apartments and penthouses, the Diamond Casino (but not the player's penthouse), and Nightclubs.



  1. The torque-loaded Överflöd Zeno is famous for breaking two world records. The first, for speeds in a densely populated area. The second, most hospitalizations during a single attempt to break a world record. A real highflyer in every sense — get it today from Legendary Motorsport.
