Freedom never tasted so good.

Rockstar once again have pushed out an update without advertising beforehand, like the "I'm Not a Hipster' Update. The "Independence Day Special" has a set of American clothing, weapons, vehicles, properties and fireworks.

Taken from the Newswire: "Demonstrate your exceptionalism and own the road from sea to shining sea with two new star spangled rides, the Sovereign motorcycle and the super-sized monster truck. And protect your rights the same way our Founding Fathers did with the latest addition to Ammu-Nation's antiques collection, the high-powered... or channel your inner Jack Howitzer with the spectacular Firework Rocket Launcher."
