Following some teases, Rockstar has announced the next heist for Grand Theft Auto V’s multiplayer component, GTA Online. The Cayo Perico heist is different in that it’s set on an entirely new location, the titular Cayo Perico island.
The heist is said to be the “biggest GTA Online adventure ever,” tasking you with breaching Cayo Perico, which is described as “one of the most secure private islands in the entire world.” You’ll be stealing art, gold, and drug money while dealing with the island’s security.
Rockstar says it’s taken a “brand-new approach” to heist design for Cayo Perico. One major component of that change is the ability to play the heist with three other players, as per usual, or to take on the challenge by yourself. It’s unclear if you’ll get any kind of AI backup, but it sounds as if you’ll be going it alone.
You can get a brief look at what to expect in the video above, which shows off the island and the “very heavily armed” submarine that serves as your headquarters. Rockstar says there are surprises in store for players, but you can also expect new social spaces where you can dance and party, new vehicles and “tactical” weapons, guest DJs, and new radio stations with more than 100 new songs to listen to.
The Cayo Perico heist releases for free on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on December 15. The console versions are both playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, respectively, with native versions of GTA V on the way.
