A new location heading to GTA Online has been shown in a trailer for an upcoming GTA Online update titled “The Cayo Perico Heist”.
This update will introduce a new heist for players to take part in. Which takes place on a remote island compound of a notorious drug dealer. The heist is being called “the biggest GTA Online adventure ever” by Rockstar in a post to the Rockstar Newswire.
Rockstar has also said that this upcoming Heist can be tackled solo or in online co-op with up to three other players in “a brand-new approach to Heist design”. Meaning, unlike previous heists you won’t need other players to complete it.
Along with a new location and Heist. New vehicles, social spaces, radio stations, weapons and a Submarine HQ will be coming to the mode.
The Cayo Perico Heist update will be coming out December 15th 2020. On PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S will be able to access this content in GTA Online via backwards compatibility.
This all comes after recent teases from Rockstar Games regarding a new GTA Online location. Which had players speculating about where they would be heading to next in the world of GTA Online. Now we know, and even though the game is seven years old, I’m looking forward to seeing what this update brings with it and will be checking it out.
I also wonder if this new location will feature in the yet to be released Grand Theft Auto 5 next-gen (well technically current-gen now) single-player mode. I doubt it, but it would mean the “expanded and enhanced” statement from the trailer for the game would make more sense.
Is this new location what you expected? Are you looking forward to the Heist? Let us know in the comments.
With all of this talk regarding GTA Online’s future, why not remember its past while your here.
