The festive season might be drawing to a close, but GTA Online is still bringing the gifts. A new update has added an all-electric bike for you to ride if you're a criminal who cares about the environment, as well as new jobs to take on and plenty more.

Back in early December, GTA Online kicked off the festive season the only way it knew how: with drugs, guns, and fraud. Now, the festively criminal celebrations continue with a brand new bike to purchase using your ill-gotten gains. The Western Powersurge bike is an all-electric machine with a permanent magnet motor, and it's yours if you cough up for it over at Legendary Motorsport.

If the bike doesn't take your fancy, you can also take on new Fooligan Jobs courtesy of Dax, who wants you to dispatch your rivals in order to earn some holiday rewards. These include new jackets and ski masks, so if you're a hooligan who cares about their appearance, now's your chance to build a new style for yourself.

You'll also find some New Year's gifts for logging in anytime this week. These gifts include firework equipment to make your criminal endeavors pop, as well as grenades, molotovs, and a beer hat so that you can make everyone who sees your photofit laugh. 

In true GTA style, a figure called "The Gooch" (get it?) is also roaming the streets between now and January 11th. If you take them out, you'll get a Gooch Mask, so you too can become the Gooch. There are also new collectibles to find and destroy (snowman as is appropriate for the season, and also lets you take out any aggression you might have towards winter weather safely), as well as GTA$ and RP bonuses on various mission types and more.

For the full lowdown on everything that's new in this GTA Online update, be sure to check out the update rundown on Rockstar's official website. You can grab GTA Online right now as part of Grand Theft Auto 5; it's available on PC, PlayStation consoles, and Xbox platforms.
