GTA Online Introducing The Cayo Perico Heist Next Month

New location, new style of heist. Sounds good to us.

GTA Online

After last week’s Heist Challenge was successful, Rockstar have today announced their biggest update yet for GTA Online, introducing a whole new island to the game. It’s called The Cayo Perico Heist, and it’s launching on December 15th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, while also being backwards compatible on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S. Take a look at the debut trailer at the top of the page.


What Is The Cayo Perico Heist?

The Cayo Perico Heist sees players infiltrate a remote island inhabited by a notorious drug dealer, with players trying to find multiple ways to assault the island compound. You can either evade or destroy the private security protecting the island as you attempt to steal enough evidence, drugs, art and gold as you can.

In a new twist on the heist formula, players can attempt The Cayo Perico Heist either solo or as part of a crew of up to three players, making it the first proper heist in GTA Online to not require four players. If you’re into grinding cash when all your mates are offline, or that fourth member called in sick, The Cayo Perico Heist ensures you still get to enjoy the fantastic Heist gameplay.


Anything Else Being Added In This Update?

You’ve got the usual influx of weapons and vehicles to look forward to, along with the promise of more social spaces with more DJs to boot. There are also more radio stations coming, with over 100 songs being added to the game. Lastly, there’s the small matter of a heavily submarine HQ that contains a bunch of other surprises. If you’re a big GTA Online player, December should be an exciting time.
