Lol, the GTAO article got yeeted. The timing was weird to be honest, it's been in preparation for over 6 hours, so definitely something prepared for Thursday or Friday.

Damn, looking at the results of this poll, it seems like a lot of people will be disappointed. 

Quick update, the feed page that shows "Cayo Perico Heist Coming December 15" now expires this Monday. Interesting change, not sure if this is more of a cover up move to shake us off or if it doe

I was searching for Yan’s words earlier today, but found some old comments in the IX thread when the casino construction info came out. Reading the comments there, I realized that sometimes people can be just consistently/habitually pessimistic...Seeing things in a positive light can yield benefits lol

I think there are people in the forums who are optimistic, pessimistic, and realistic. It balances this place out having all three imo.

I think yan was referring to the 40% of people who think it'll be seamless. Imo I think it's very possible it'll be accessible only through a loading screen.

What if Cayo Perico is in the map, but only fully accessable after you complete the heist for the first time so you make it "yours"? 

Shorta like when the aircraft carrier spawns in bussines battles.

I hope it's made as an unlockable in some way like what you're describing. To this day I haven't once bought myself a shark card, only grinded for everything (taking it slow too), but I basically made a vow years ago that one way or another I would pay out of my own pocket to get access to the expansion. If that means buying a shark card for the submarine and then subsequently completing the heist so be it. If it's optimized well enough (I trust them, I had many map expansion mods at once back on GTA IV/4 without performance issues, and a AAA company would try to optimize such content more than the average mod) I want to help encourage them to do more Map Expansions, if there's one thing I will pay for out-of-pocket in this game it's Map Expansions.

Gotta hand it to R*. Create maps like Guarma, North Yankton and this private island only to be enjoyed in very limited capacity. I’m still confident it’s still gonna be a great update regardless.

The map will be fully explorable with restricted areas near the drug kingpin property. The cabana will most likely have a live dj playing sets there. No way rockstar adds a map expansion that can't be enjoyed, that is bad for business.


Agreed. I know Yan has been the most reliable leaker ever but I have a hard time believing they would add a map expansion with no ability to roam it. I think it will be exactly as you say.

I’m sorry to tell you, but the poll has two questions, both of which are about the extent to which the island can be explored, and both had a majority of people answer with the assumption that it would work just like freeroam in Los Santos. What he’s saying is pretty clear. 
 

So either Yan and all of the mods and insiders are bullsh*tting everyone to make us all even more happy at release, or—the more likely option—they’re just bracing us so this doesn’t become a B&M thread. I think that’s the simpler, more likely explanation. 

Well if it's not available in free roam my emails to R* will be a B&M thread lmao.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Island is mission only. We may have the opportunity to explore a little during set-ups, but that's likely all we will be able to do. The island itself seems fairly small, couple roads and a decent size airstrip, so its not like there's going to be much there for us to explore after a few days of messing around on the island.

 

One thing I am curious of is how the wanted level system will work on this island IF it is in freemode. Will it just be a bunch of cartel members responding to crimes on the island or with the LSPD make an attempt to chase via helicopter?

I agree that motivating the. To do more map expansions is important. The best motivator is money in their pockets. When I first started playing, I spent roughly $400 on shark cards. This was back in 2015. After that, I realized for me it was a waste of my money and instead became a grinder, pumping many hours into crates. Its tough to way what you value a dlc and how much satisfaction you get from it and what you feel is a correct dollar amount to pay. Most would say zero, but I agree motivating them with money for further expansions may be smart.

During heist week they received a few from me, as I could not enter the arcade during the weapon setups when you steal the unmarked guns. Over the years support may have learned me by first name. I wouldn't be surprised if they say "of geeze, this guy again" when seeing my complaints

I think there is a town on the left (east?) Of the map

He may be referring to the seamless transition to the new island. That choice is leading the poll. Looking at the trailer, we know the submarine will be a new HQ, and it was moving in the water near the new island. Why add a new hq that you can only use in a heist? Doesn't make sense. I think his comment is in regards to seamless travel between LS and the island. The good news is, next week we will get more information is my guess. R* is going to hype this dlc up. (T2 stocks went up $4 a share with its announcement btw) 

 

I don't believe there have been any dlcs with two teaser trailers.. I could be mistaken. I also wonder if a new website will soon be available for this dlc. There is so many moving parts to it, more then the casino, that I would think r* would want to "prepare" us.

I have a theory. I also lean more towards the part fo being "seamless". I don't think that people who will not buy everything required to do the heist, will not be able to go there, and if R* would act in a way to push to the limit the paywall, maybe they would make the island only available for the players who already did everything in the game in terms of dlc's, or should i say, that are up-to-date with the online events and correct character story/progression (bcz, let's face it, new players are all chronologically f*cked up...they buy whatever is more profitable for them in order to make quick cash. Some of my friends for example, already did the casino heists but are only know doing the casino story missions. 😛 Then, if you do everything that is required is when you could receive a call to unlock the new island, like "yo, it's me X, we're going to heist an island, so get ready".

Or, at the very least, you maybe don't need do anything prior to the cayo perico heist and as long you do the heist one time, then you are able to travel there in free roam but not before you do a sucesseful heist.

I will bet that as a private island, cops don't exist there...or at least in a few small number, but i would say that the "heat system" will be narco-traffickers if you mess in the island.

I bet green stars for a level on the island with more guards and levels of them coming towards you with more detection and damage dealt to them

I'm of the opinion that this new map will only be used for the heists, and possibly at some point be available for custom missions. 

 

When GTA Online was first announced I always figured they would let you travel to other locations (the GTA Online trailer seemed to imply new locations iirc) by buying tickets at an airport, or by flying into a checkpoint a distance out over the water like a particular mission in GTA SA.

 

If they actually do let us go to the island manually, it would be a great feature to fly there ourselves. Taking an Avenger with a vehicle in the back would be a unique experience. One would logically expect things like Pegasus, the mechanic, or the CEO vehicles to not work like they would back in the US.

I have faith that this update Will have lots on launch day, and maybe even some of the drip feed will be expansions on already existing things like vehicles (an example being the dinghy but obviously not that as I expect it to be released on launch day). Think the research from Gunrunning but as drip feed, I’d like that more than a Trump ‘Huege’ sized paywall.

Just saw Yan's comment, and I hope he's not talking about accessing the island in free mode. I'd like to think R* wouldn't be stupid enough to finally add more land to the game, and have it be only limited to missions only. But you never know...

Either its like avenger and you can move it around or its a prop like the yacht. In both cases:

- it probably spawns near docks and piers
- if you are nowhere near a dock or a pier, it spawns in the ocean with a Dinghy on the beach (and if you get near it you can press a button to teleport inside, just like with the office helipad)
- if you can move it, you can most likely lock it place (Avengers autopilot works the same way)
- probably armored with torpedoes, mines, RC missiles, RC heli/boat or orbital canon...
- probably has a smaller vehicle inside like SharkSubmarine or missile launched gyrocopter
- you can probably spawn outside with a jetski or a boat

And just like with MOC and Terrorbyte, we probably use it to launch missions. And we gonna use it in one of the heist setups, thats for sure.

Edit:
Also it dosn't look like they are heavily customizable but who knows

All of the things below is my assumption, most of them may be wrong:

The island is running by the drug lord, there's no cops at all, if u do anything suspicious, the gang member will chase u unless u lose them. 

The compound, weed farm are restricted area like military base.

The island have a town and vacation area to support the gang daily needs and income.

 

The new room in casino probably drug lord idea, such as a personal area or drug storage.

Once we install the patch, When we step into the casino, someone invite us to the island as tourist . Moreover, as a owner of a famous club, we have an offer to invest a new bar/resort properties there.

Soon we are connected by someone and barbarbar a reason to help someone to steal evidence from drug lord.

The new property bring regular income like nightclub and work as heist equipment warehouse, it has a small dock to place personal boats and access to the submarine.

We start heist setup and heist final in the submarine, when we start a mission, we will sent to the exit of our property or nearby offshore. Depending the nature of mission.

I'm curious about the Prep Phase of this Heist. Scoping I could imagine there being 2 ways of going about it this time, via the Submarine or Big-Conning your way in as a party-goer but that also involves stealth if you want to get closer to El Rubios operation's beyond the social spaces, get caught and you get booted off the island. The Finale; enter the island, get the evidence, then escape, grabbing as much loot as you can on the way before it gets too hot.

 

Now I can imagine there being a Hacker and Driver... if there's gunman and we're once again limited to what a gunman can source rather than our personal loadout, that's gonna be a major disappointment. I should say, a MANDATORY Gunman, I'd understand a Gunman being optional, being a way of sourcing the more heavy duty Mk2 weaponry to give players who might not have a Bunker & Research an edge for putting the extra time in setting up. Maybe even the Driver could be optional, we'd still have to source the vehicle to get back to the Sub (assuming that's the Buy-In and not just a super expensive benefit) but hiring a Driver would allow us to pick from a wider range of escape methods, like how Eddie Toh pilots the cargobob on Fleeca; rolling getaways.

 

And the thing is, unless we get to pre-place a few methods of sabotage on the island to aid in the Heist (like Casino EMP or Casino Trashmaster), I can't imagine any Prep/Setups being set on the island itself.

OG heists: separate lobby setups, no freeroam preps.

 

DD heist (all acts): both.

 

Casino heist: no setups, only preps (not all of them are mandatory).

 

What about the "new take on heists" being a big ass finale with a lot of possible successful outcomes and no forced previous stuff? it would qualify, certainly. But the new take could be just the ability to do the finale solo. We'll see.

Speaking of sa, when you went to an island you didn't unlock yet, you would get 4 stars, and if flying, a hydra would show up to shoot you down. If the island is in regular freemode, there is a chance you could try and go there and get shot down by anti air defenses. Which given the first trailer is surveillance, the first thing you probably do is gather info about the island with the fancy submarine and have a bunch of cutscenes. :DThat will be your buy in, being similar to the yacht for those missions. Given its new, they probably won't reveal the entire map unless you unlock parts of it, or reveal it via assassins creed style. 

 

We will get plenty of loading screens, they are R* favorite thing about online. :D If you fly there with a ticket or something, it will be its own island with its own mechanics. Having all the normal nonsense of freemode being on a much smaller map, you wouldn't be able to accomplish anything if you had the population density of Manhattan. Just imagine if any of the private lobby heists we had would of taken place in regular freemode, they would be a disaster. (Well a much bigger disaster given some players fail at basic tasks in the existing heists.)

 

It will be much easier to make the island free of most things to do with the regular game. The island, most likely your personal buy in submarine will be your new home. Probably no pegasus, your personal vehicles, ceo vehicles, abilities, no regular cops, gang attacks, stores, most things you can do will be LS only.

But you have to remember the gta formula. Go to Point A, Kill this, Steal that, maybe go to another point, kill this, steal that, and complete. Now that we can allegedly do "everything" by ourselves like contact missions, (Even though heists and contact missions are the exact same thing, just missions with different requirements), doing it yourself and not having to deal with the (simple tasks are too hard) other players, would be unique as in for "heists". Even though solo missions is what we played until the first heists, (missions). We will have a lot of replay value being able to play the game by ourselves or with other people. How many people still do the original heists, compared to the ones we have now? :D
