The team at Rockstar Games today released The Cayo Perico Heist, the biggest and most action-packed GTA Online update to date.
An all-new GTA Online adventure, players will be able to take on what is being described as the next evolution of Heist gameplay. Teaming up with a crew of up to four (or flying solo), players will be able to infiltrate the infamous drug lord El Rubio’s heavily secured private island Cayo Perico and make out with narcotics, gold, cash, and art.
While on the island, players must scope things out by photographing points of interest, hacking into Cayo Perico’s security system, and gaining access to the CCTV cameras that are littered around El Rubio’s compound. Players must also determine the best entrypoint – either via the island’s airstrip or through several boat docking points. Some Prep missions will net players equipment like demolition charges and cutting torches, while others will provide new approaches to Cayo Perico itself.
To make sure everything goes off without a hitch, players will also be able to hire a support crew ranging from a Sniper to a Recon Drone. Note that some of these crew members will only be available to those that have previously engaged with previous Grand Theft Auto Online updates.
Acting as the new mobile base of operations for The Cayo Perico Heist, the new Kosatka Submarine will become available at Warstock Cache & Carry. From there, players will be able to access the bridge, your personal quarters, the mess hall, and the moon pool. Players will also be able to purchase upgrades like guided missiles, sonar, and the weapon workshop.
Finally, alongside The Music Locker, Cayo Perico, and the beach party social space, a number of new Freemode Collectibles and Activities, as well as brand new clothing, weapons, and vehicles will make their way to the game.
According to Rockstar Games Founder Sam Houser:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“The Cayo Perico Heist is our way of getting everyone together to party and dance in the safest possible way while also giving players the chance to take on our biggest and best Heist yet.
