If you log in to GTA Online between January 19 and January 25, there will be some surprises waiting for you. Celebrate the Lunar New Year in GTA Online with a Rabbit mask, free to all players.

The Lunar New Year is a time for celebration, and GTA Online is taking the opportunity to reward its players. 2023 is the year of the Rabbit in the Chinese zodiac, so players will be receiving a special limited edition Rabbit mask. Red envelopes containing money are also part of the celebration and are handed by the adults to younger people. Rockstar Games is gifting their own version of the red envelopes with a bonus of $188,888 for players.

If you are looking to fully embrace the spirit of the rabbit, eat some Peyote Plants to temporarily transform into a furry little creature. Another free perk is a Lunar Year Rabbit tattoo, now available in all the tattoo shops. All 12 signs are available, but only the Rabbit tattoo is free.
