First, stores across Los Santos and Blaine County will offer all manner of Independence Day-themed items, including a monster truck called The Liberator and a Sovereign motorcycle.

Players can also purchase a Firework Rocketlauncher and ammo, as well as a variety of red-white-and-blue gear such as hats, t-shirts, masks, and more.

To make things even sweeter, all 4th of July items are available at a 25 percent discount.

What's more, players can earn double GTA$ through the special Independence Day Online event playlist. This features "patriotic-themed" GTA Online Jobs. Get a sneak peek at these Jobs by clicking through the links below.
