GTA Online Is A Little Spookier, Thanks To Halloween Surprises

You can't avoid Halloween right now, from the constant bombardment of Halloween songs on the radio to the clerks at stores wishing you spooky seasons greetings. If you fire up GTA Online hoping to get away from the holiday hype, you're out of luck; the game is getting in the Halloween spirit in a big way.

From now until Nov. 16, players can access a horrific host of new masks, bobbleheads, and other seasonal surprises. A few highlights include the Lurcher Hearse, pictured below, and an Adversary Mode designed to mimic a slasher film. There, up to eight players fight in the dark, as one randomly selected player is chosen to be the Slasher. That player is armed with a shotgun, while the others are left with flashlights. Stay alive for three minutes, however, and the tables are turned as the survivors get armed.

The event is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
