GTA Online’s Dec 22 update brings the new Itali RSX Sports Car, snow, other Festive Surprises, and much more. The game is still very much reeling from its massive launch of the Cayo Perico Heist, but Rockstar is relentless in the desire to make GTA Online great.
The long-awaited release of the Cayo Perico Heist finally brought an island extension to Los Santos nearly seven years after the game’s original release. It’s fair to say that lots of people are still making the most of all the new content that the update added.
But Rockstar is certainly not stopping there as they have rolled out another weekly GTA Online update with shiny new items and eye-opening discounts to lure in potential buyers.
Thanks to renowned GTA leaker TezFunz2, here’s everything you need to know about the December 22 update.
GTA Online update & patch notes December 22
New cars: Itali RSX & Veto Modern
As well as vehicles added with the Cayo Perico expansion, GTA Online has now added two more stunning vehicles to own in the form of the Itali RSX and the Veto Modern.
The Itali RSX will set you back a whopping $3,465,000, but that’s because it’s a ferocious speedster that will ruin the tarmac with its speed.
Here’s the vehicle’s official description:
“Warning: NSFW. There’s a sexy single car in your area looking for a ride. Interested? Just open a private tab and check out these candid pics of the RSX’s sultry bodywork, hourglass waist, soft front, and silken A-line. But before you take it to the next level and see what’s under the hood, turn off your webcam and mute your mic. The conference call you’re ignoring is about to see your o-face.“
The Veto Modern is an equally sleek-looking design that makes go-karts premium. It won’t quite burn a hole in your wallet like the Itali RSX, but you’ll still need to fork out $995,000 to own it.
Here’s the official description of it:
“So you think you’re worthy of the Veto Modern? You better be. This vehicle is so sophisticated, so sleek, so moderately powerful, that it’s road legal. We think. We haven’t verified that yet…“
Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward
If splurging absurd money on exotic new cars isn’t your thing, then you can always rely on the trusty Lucky Wheel to gamble on a posh new ride for cheap.

Festive Surprise & Still Slipping Los Santos
Snow is in Los Santos! As a yearly tradition, players can bask in a completely white Los Santos as snow will fall for the next few days. Head into GTA Online and you’ll find white for miles around and don’t forget to put down the pistols, pick up a snowball, and enjoy this rare occasion.
It’s well and truly the most wonderful time of year and decorations, snow, and Xmas trees all contribute to this. In addition to the themed scenery, players can expect a free Festive Mask when they login to wear and sing Christmas songs with.

Make sure to check shops too as there are masks everywhere to be bought.
Los Santos’s newest radio station is also here to treat your ears. The new experimental station favors the stylings of Electronic, UK Hip-Hop, and Dancehall music.
But there are 10 radio antennas located in Los Santos that you will need to collect in order to make Still Slipping Los Santos listenable across all of the map. Collect the antennas and you’ll get the radio station and a healthy cash bonus too, so make sure you use our guide on where to find the Still Slipping antennas for a $250k GTA Online bonus.

How to play Battlefield 2042 Open Beta
Now that Battlefield 2042 has been officially revealed, here’s how you can play the upcoming massive-scale multiplayer experience’s open beta.
Battlefield 2042 is confirmed to have an Open Beta, allowing players to get a taste of the massive battles ahead of its official launch. Here’s how you can play the Open Beta and access it early.
Now that the wait is over and Battlefield 2042 has officially been revealed, it’s time to start wondering when you can get your hands on the next installment of the blockbuster franchise.
The game is on the slate for an October 22, 2021 launch, but DICE also has plans for an Open Beta ahead of its launch. With the latest showcase at EA Play Live, the developers revealed a more specific time for when players can get their hands on the Beta and subsequently the new Specialists, massive maps, and new game modes.
Here’s everything we know about Battlefield 2042’s Open Beta.
How to access Battlefield 2042 Open Beta
As well as announcing Battlefield Portal, during Battlefield 2042’s showcase for EA Play Live on July 22, DICE officially announced that players can expect the Open Beta in September of this year.
Battlefield V’s beta happened a month before release, with those who preordered the game getting two days of early access. Battlefield 2042 is expected to follow the same model, with the developers confirming that those who preorder the game will be able to play first.
Battlefield 2042 is on the slate for October 22, and although it isn’t a pinpoint date, we can officially expect the Open Beta to drop in September 2021.
If you’ve preordered the game, you’ll get early access to a Closed Beta, likely a couple of days ahead of the Open Beta’s launch. If you haven’t preordered the game, don’t worry, as you won’t have to spend a penny to play the Open Beta. It will likely appear on your platform of choice’s store as a free download.
There is also no confirmation if the Open Beta will be available for both those playing the Xbox One/PS4 and Xbox Series X/PS5 editions.
Stay tuned to Charlie INTEL and @BravoINTEL for all updates on Battlefield 2042.

Seer’s abilities discussed at EA Play for Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence
Apex Legends upcoming Season 10 will feature a brand new Legend called “Seer,” who may even give Bloodhound a run for his money.
Apex Legends revealed further details on Season 10: Emergence at EA Play recently, giving players an insight into how the new Legend Seer will operate.
Season 9: Legacy has been a great success for Respawn, introducing a brand new way to play the battle royale with Arenas and expanding the roster with arguably the most balanced Legend they have introduced since the launch of Seasons, Valkyrie.
As well as enjoying the current event, Thrillseekers, which saw a new Arena’s map enter their game, players have also been getting their first details on Season 10: Emergence, especially the new Legend, Seer.
On July 22, EA held their annual showcase event, EA Play Live. As well as a variety of their games being showcased, such as Battlefield and Fifa, Apex Legends used this event to reveal the first official Apex Legends Season 10 trailer.
Although this wasn’t a gameplay trailer, it still provided a load of hints and details concerning Apex Legends’ new character Seer, including how his abilities will work.
As well as this, after the trailer had finished, one of Respawn’s developers provided even more information on Seer, where fans were given an explanation of his Passive, Tactical, and Ultimate abilities.
Apex Legends Seer abilities
Much like Bloodhound, Seer is a Recon Legend who will be mainly focused on gaining intel on enemies with a stealthy playstyle. Seer’s kit is all about tracking the opposition, but it seems the abilities are much more pinpoint than Bloodhound’s scan.
Apex Legends Seer: Passive ability
Seer will gain access to a heartbeat sensor when aiming down sights and be able to track nearby enemies. Although there is currently no representation of this in-game, perhaps players can expect something similar to Call of Duty’s famous Heartbeat Sensor tactical equipment.
After sensing an enemy’s heartbeat, Seers tactical ability will allow him to send out his Moth Drones to track them down and reveal their position.
Finally, Seer’s Ultimate ability will send out a heap of drones that will combine to create a sphere. Seer will be able to sense and track anyone who is moving fast within this sphere, creating an interesting gameplay mechanic, which may cause teams to alter their movements in order to stay undetected.
Although we don’t currently have any official gameplay of these abilities, the reveal trailer and descriptions of the abilities do a great job at giving players an idea of how Seer will work in-game.
Make sure to check back on this page as more information is released regarding Seer and Season 10, as it seems on July 25, we will be getting our first gameplay trailer.

How to mark an Alien Egg in Fortnite Season 7, Week 7 Quest
Here’s how you can complete the Fortnite Season 7 Week 7 Legendary Quest that requires you to mark an Alien Egg.
There are brand-new Quests to complete in Week 7 of Fortnite Season 7, and here’s how you can complete the Legendary challenge that requires you to mark an Alien Egg.
Week 7 of Fortnite Season 7 is here, and there are brand-new weekly challenges for you to complete so that you can earn XP and Battle Stars. These include tasks like stoking campfires and constructing Wooden Hatcheries.
One of this week’s Legendary Quests tasks you with finding and marking an Alien Egg. These aren’t found all over the map, so this guide will help you out by letting you know where to look.
Alien Egg locations in Fortnite Season 7
After the Alien invasion arrived, many changes came to Fortnite Island. Holly Hedges has been changed to Holly Hatchery, and it’s the area that you’ll need to visit for this Legendary Quest.
This location has changed into a farm for Alien Eggs in Season 7, and there’s a low gravity biome in the area. Head over there, and look for little green orbs that are sprouting out of the ground.
You can also check the southwest portion of the purple crater in the center of the map.
You only need to mark one Alien Egg so make your way to either one of these locations. After you come across one, you can mark it by pinging its location on your map. So use the mouse scroll, or the left D-pad button.
Once that’s done, you’ll earn a total of 30,000 XP. You can also complete the rest of the weekly challenges to earn some extra XP and Battle Stars.
Also, check out how to complete all the Ferrari challenges in Fortnite.
