Two different games I know but the last tropical island I ventured on by Rockstar I always have this image stuck in my head. Paradise my ass in that game. :kekw:

Are we all forgetting the fact myself included that every single heist finale you have to spawn into. That’s not gonna change. 
 

Another point, the aircraft carrier is at the very tip of the edge of the map. Even then to take a plane out to it takes all of 30 seconds. I just can’t see R* thinking what’s the point in a small journey. 
 

I am defo in the camp for the island to be a map expansion on the PS5 versions. Sorry I’m not technical but surely with more memory those systems will be able to handle extra islands?

At this point I think it might be helpful to 'take stock', as a certain RDR2 character might once have said.

 

- We don't know whether or not the island is freeroam, but the consensus seems to be that Rockstar would be unmasked as a pure hate machine if it isn't in some way accessible outside of heists. 

 

- Partying / DJ opportunities seem to add weight to the idea that the island will be freeroam, but don't forget the mysterious building work going on around the side of the casino. Also, why are those two outdoor concert arenas on the main map still empty?

 

- Getting a submarine is presumably just another iteration of the MOC type of concept, maybe we're all a bit weary of that tired yet lucrative format and we're totally aware of where it's all going. Can we pilot the thing or will it just be like a deeper yacht? 

 

- The island is tiny... but wait it's big look at the screenshots! We mostly now seem to agree that it's not huge but it's still a cautiously okay chunk of new life into the game. We don't know anything about the easter eggs and caves, tunnels and bunkers they might have built into it too - if any.

 

- We don't know whether or not this island is going to be part of the main map or a mission cut screen, a-la North Yankton. But they deliberately chose a geography and climate that is many thousands of miles away from the American Pacific western seaboard, as opposed to a Catalina type of vibe. 

 

- And last and least plausibly, we still don't know what else is in the bigger-picture DLC. Could there be other islands and structures too? Probably not. But we don't yet know so don't rule out some nice surprises. Even if the track record from Rockstar hasn't given much confidence or goodwill recently.

Probably the best summary of what we know and what people feel in the forums given what information we currently have from R*.

Its a Baja Califiornia island mad to the south of L.S. way way south. 

 

I believe west coast Mexican cartels are based there in real life and I also think its a tourist spot. Sure the island may be based on Escobars island in Columbia but how would a body get from Columbia to Los Santos. Obviously there's some kind of go between for bodies to be washing ashore.

 

EL Rubio is Ferdinand Kerimov with possibly some involvement of Georgina Cheng.

I'm hoping that since they made it an island as opposed to a closed-boundary map like North Yankton, that we can freeroam on it and go there for activities, even if we have to take a virtual airplane trip with a map load as the only way to get there.  I always assumed and hoped (and still hope) that this would be the way that Rockstar would expand the Online world to other cities / regions (which have to be their own island, like Los Santos).  

 

Other than the Ibiza-like rave scene, the GTA combat part of this DLC looks kind of like something I'd call GTA Online: The Sicario Missions, or GTA Online - Call of Duty: Cartel.

I am hopeful that the island is accessible in Freeroam and will be located just beyond the draw distance of the main map, so slightly further out than the aircraft carrier's relative position.

 

I would like to think that by adding a runway, and a sizeable one from the look of it (the large plane going overhead in the trailer adds weight to this), not a small mud strip like grapeseed, that flights to the island are both player controlled and seamless. I am cautiously optimistic that the journey won't be broken up by a loading screen / cut scene each time.

I have not talked on here since The Preacher. I just want to say I am active again on this forum just for this. Who knows what this island will entail? As long as I get some good Hawaiian shirts and a good soundtrack to steal cartel money to!

In all seriousness, behind those glass, you can find something called GTA VI.

To get to the computer with it on though, it’s like every other Rockstar interior. You have to make a long trek from the entrance, down some stairs, along a corridor, past some toilets, up some other stairs, through some doors, along another corridor, through some more doors and down another flight of steps until you eventually reach it...

As much as I would like this to be free roam I have my doubts... R* had the opportunity to do this before with Ludendorff & Guarma.

So as much as I'd like to say.. NO WAY! it's definitely going to be free roam.. I took some time with my buddies last night to look over the info given to us thus far. After reading a few articles about their plans for next gen consoles, as well as GTAO's future. We've realized that we've been kinda swindled with perception.

 

We all read the first statements about this grand adventure on a new island. Then shortly after they talk about

""Plus you can acquire new vehicles and tactical weapons, experience new social spaces to dance and party in with your friends, and new world-class guest DJs, and listen to new radio stations with over 100 new songs. Oh, and a very large, very versatile, and very heavily armed submarine HQ with plenty of other surprises.

Stay tuned for more details as you prepare for The Cayo Perico Heist."

 

Experience new Social spaces to dance and party with your friends- This is more likely new locations opened within Los Santos. Maybe new luxury condo's/mansions? or just some exclusive lounges that become available via the new story line.

 

The new Dj guests and radio songs: Probably guests coming to our night club, adding a new radio station of music.

 

The Submarine seems like it will be a yacht mixed with a facility/arcade basement, somewhere deep off shore, most likely with some docking station.

 

Also looking at what Yan said, as well as another very rep source. "a lot of people will be disappointed.

 

In recent articles about GTAO on next gen consoles. I feel like a free roam on Cayo Perico, or a new expansion map location of free roam wont be available until PS5, XSX. That's when we'll see a real map expansion. They've spoken in the past their inability to change some original content because of how they created it before. They've specifically said in interviews, GTA5 on the next gen consoles will be technically improved, along with enhanced graphics and the game will be more "Expanded and Enhanced" than ever. I feel like they're still limited on PS4 and Xbox. A lot of people are probably gonna be bummed thinking this was a whole new location to run around.

I think part of the island is going to be a resort that anyone can visit by buying a ticket from the Airport but the house and drug fields are restricted and get you "Wanted" by the local Cartel.

Now there are rumors that this fuqqin thing won't even be accessible in Freemode. 🤣 If there's truth to that. It's just further cemented how uninterested I am in this game. Haven't played since February. I'm already disappointed that they didn't simply utilize North Yankton as it's such a different environment, and already has a general framework built. Going from sunny Los Santos to a fecking tropical island isn't CLOSE to a 180 change in environment. But it won't stop me from not being interested in the environment altogether. But it's still massively disappointing and a wasted opportunity for not introducing us to the state of North Yankton/town of Ludendorff. In my head I played out all possible scenarios to this DLC and how it would actually play. And surely enough, one of them was simply just a new setting for a heist. Hardly can be considered a "map expansion". No freemode/gameplay features and mechanics accessible from the basis from which the game was designed = Not a map expansion. Plain and simple. Freemode; properties, storage, Freemode events, exploration, etc, etc, etc. As for the heist? After the Casino update, I'm not holding my breath. And i'm DEFINITELY not holding my breath on Doomsday being dethroned as easily the top-tier heist and one of the greatest DLCs. Maybe it's just click-baiting Youtuber rhetoric at this early stage? We'll have to wait and see. But no Freemode?

 

😂 Just please... Can I laugh in your face, Rockstar?

Wasn't the 360/Ps3 able to load north Yankton online via a glitch? Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't remember North Yankton lagging the game too much even when it was placed in freeroam. If thats the case I don't see why the new island couldn't be in freeroam. Im probably super wrong about this but hey it might make a good discussion.

A “drug vehicle” random event showed up when I was wondering around. Is this new? What could it mean?

New free mode random event? I got a free mode random event were I ran into a “drug vehicle”. After I was messaged by a Spanish man asking for his drugs back

It was added in the summer update, just a short little 10K random event. There are multiple types of vehicles, drugs, and NPCs that text you but the reward for completing the mission is always 10K.

 

There's no deeper meaning or lore that we know of for now, but maybe that may change in the next update?

So exactly how high are the odds of this being one of those "mission only area" type of deal? I know the island is quite large but I dunno, it could be a North Yankton situation where you just fail if you go outside boundaries.
