GTA Online"s Halloween Event has come early. Reports of Phantom Vehicles and Wild-eyed Slashers Stalking Victims, Plus, the Return of Classic Halloween Modes, Alien Survivals, and More

It"s a big year for GTA 5 and by extension GTA Online. Whilst another year has passed and there"s still plenty of GTA 6 Leaks to keep fans excited, an official GTA 6 Release Date still feels fairly far off.

Thankfully, the GTA 5 Expanded & Enhanced edition should give fans (old & new) further reason to play the existing game when it arrives. Plus if Rockstar keeps pumping out great content like the GTA Online Summer Update, who are we to complain?

The PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game are set to launch next March, and that means the last in-game event before that next-gen switch gets turned on, will be the customary Halloween Event Week - fondly referred to as Halloween Surprise.
