Both of Rockstar's massive flagship titles are offering their online players some epic bonuses, following a record-breaking Holiday season.

Not one, but both games broke records over the festive break.

Following the launch of The Diamond Casino Heist in December, the highest ever number of GTA Online players were logged in, surpassing records set over the summer with the release of The Diamond Casino & Resort.


Red Dead Online also hit a new high in terms of player numbers in December, following the release of the Moonshiners update.

These numbers were topped up again in January.

GTA V had it's best-ever year for views on Youtube, seeing their best-ever seven-day period between 30 December to 5 January.

They also broke a new record for engagement in the week ending on 12 January, so it has been a record-breaking couple of months for Rockstar.

Continue below for all the details on the bonuses.
