OUT NOW: THE CAYO PERICO HEIST

OUT NOW: THE CAYO PERICO HEIST

Discover Offshore Riches in GTA Online’s Biggest Update Ever

 

Robbing the biggest bank in the country? Been there. Raiding the casino’s vaults? Done that. Infiltrating the heavily guarded private party island of the ruthless drug lord El Rubio? Now you’re talking. Leave behind the lights of Los Santos for the sands of Cayo Perico and your biggest heist yet.

 

The Cayo Perico Heist is the largest and most ambitious Grand Theft Auto Online adventure to date. Playable from start to finish either as a lone operator or with up to three other players, discover dozens of ways to infiltrate and heist a brand-new location for the ultimate score. Your journey begins with an introduction to a new contact found at the Los Santos nightlife scene’s latest attraction…

 

music-header.jpg

 

MEET AT THE MUSIC LOCKER

 

If you are bound to meet anyone in The Music Locker’s uber-exclusive VIP section, it is Miguel Madrazo, club-rat son of Martin and Patricia and heir to the family’s empire. As he is prone to telling anyone within shouting distance, Miguel would do anything to defend the family’s “brand.”

 

It appears the Madrazo crime family is having some disagreements with El Rubio, so they’re looking for someone experienced to raid his near-impenetrable fortress, outmaneuver high-priced guards and high-tech security, and make off with some important files.

 

island-header.jpg

 

THE ISLAND OF CAYO PERICO


El Rubio prefers to hide out on Cayo Perico, his heavily fortified private party island, far away from the friendly and familiar confines of Los Santos.

 

With all the constant beach-side raving and free-flowing drugs from the nearby crops, the island would look like a trendy resort-turned-festival, were it not for the paid henchmen standing around holding assault rifles.

TAKING DOWN EL RUBIO

 

elrubio-header.jpg

 

 

Once you’ve gathered the necessary gear, you can choose to complete as much (or as little) set-up and planning as you want – though be warned that these decisions will, in turn, affect the way the action unfolds. If you want to call in an airstrike or use a cutting torch to burn through steel beams, for example, you would be well advised to put the time in beforehand.

carousel-elrubio6.jpg

 

Once all the groundwork is laid down, you can nail down your final details before approaching Cayo Perico. These choices include how you infiltrate and escape the island, your weapons loadouts, air support, and even the operation’s time of day. As a result, no two approaches are alike on subsequent playthroughs. And repeat visits will allow you to heist valuable artifacts and other valuables as they become available.

 

There is also a load of extra opportunities you can use to play to your advantage, such as breaking into storage lockups to raid hidden stashes of cash and contraband to bolster your bottom-line and fatten up your take. These chances and the tools necessary to complete them will rarely be found in the same place twice – some are only accessible when playing with multiple players, so joining up with friends is very much encouraged.

SOLO PLAY

 

elrubio-solo.jpg

 

The Cayo Perico Heist is the first Heist that is playable completely solo from start to finish. Take on stealth recon, high octane shootouts and the epic score alone or team up with a Heist crew for extra support. Crack and take down the island of Cayo Perico any way you like.

 

THE KOSATKA SUBMARINE

 

sub-header.jpg

 

What better headquarters for plotting the elaborate offshore raid on a private tropical island than a decommissioned nuclear submarine?

 

sub-pavel.jpg

 

Manned by Pavel, a former Soviet helmsman driven half-insane by his time spent under the waves, the Kosatka has everything you might need to plot a successful landing, including a bridge with a Heist Planning Screen; personal quarters for outfit changes; a mess hall, a brig, torpedo defenses, plus options to install a Mk II Weapons Workshop and Guided Missiles, and a Moon Pool that allows you to store vehicles like the new Sparrow helicopter and Kraken Avisa submersible to use however you see fit.

 

sub-sparrow.jpg

 

sub-avisa.jpg

 

The Kosatka is navigable around the shores of Southern San Andreas, and with so many smugglers trafficking goods across the sea, there’s always cargo falling overboard. The optional Sonar Station can help find Hidden Caches strewn about the ocean floor for additional rewards. Don’t feel guilty about stealing contraband… feel smug about cleaning the ocean floor instead.

NEW MUSIC


The Music Locker is kicking things off proper with Moodymann headlining as the club’s debut resident DJ.


Your connections in the hospitality industry may request assistance in making Moodymann’s stay in Los Santos as memorable as possible. If you take on this responsibility, you’re sure to be well compensated. Keep an eye on The Music Locker, the party continues to expand next week with new Resident DJs along with new missions for each.

Along with the new party venues, the Cayo Perico Heist update brings with it new radio stations: K.U.L.T. 99.1 FM, hosted by Julian Casablancas. Plus, Gilles Peterson and Flying Lotus have curated playlist updates for Worldwide FM and FlyLo FM, respectively.

 

newmusic-3.png

 

Drivers in the Mirror Park area of Los Santos, meanwhile, might hear rogue transmissions from Joy Orbison’s pirate radio project, Still Slipping Los Santos. If you do, do not touch that dial. Keep an eye (and ear) out for busted radio antennae around the city that you can repair to help bring Still Slipping Los Santos to the masses.

 

newmusic-stillslipping-tee.jpg

 

Everyone who jumps in to play this week will receive the Yellow Still Slipping Tee to telegraph their good music taste to all.

CIVILIST & MISBHV


Los Santos has always been an iconic hub for fashion, from the high-end designer style in Rockford Hills to the streetwear in Mirror Park. Clothing stores are being hit with brand new labels Civilist and MISBHV this week for ravers and criminals alike.

 

NEW VEHICLES, WEAPONS AND MORE


Beyond the Kosatka submarine and the vehicles available for its Moon Pool, there’s also a range of new vehicle inventory available to Los Santos residents, including:

vehicles-alkonost.jpg

 

vehicles-kurtz.jpg

 

vehicles-longfin.jpg

 

vehicles-toreador.jpg

And thanks to the GTA Online community successfully walking away with over GTA$1 Trillion dollars in Heist takes during The Heist Challenge, GTA Online players will receive a free Dinka Veto Classic go-kart as a gift between Friday, December 18th and Sunday, December 20th. Be sure to log in and play to claim it this weekend to get yours.

 

vehicles-gokart.jpg

 

There are also new and powerful weapons, including a bullpup-style Military Rifle available from Ammu-Nation. You can also recover a high-powered Combat Shotgun while taking down the Heist Finale, which unlocks it in Ammu-Nation to add to your arsenal.

 

weapons-combatshotgun.jpg

Rumor has it, El Rubio’s got a special pistol that’s as deadly as it is decadent. Rumor also has it, no one knows where on Cayo Perico he keeps it locked away…

 

Make sure to keep up with the Rockstar Newswire for all the latest and greatest in GTA Online, as we will be rolling out more updates, music, vehicles, holiday events and so much more over the coming weeks.

People do realise you can go to the Island when ever you want via the Sub right?

 

It's the top option on the command screen.

Without restrictions?

Cheers. I thought not, because I did look. Then I saw a screenshot on here from Southern San Andreas Autos with all the new cars on and I wondered if I hadn't unlocked them or something.

 

They will be drip fed as usual then.

Why?

What is this obsession with it being in Free Roam, what do people think will magically happen?


because what’s the point if it’s not? Why couldn’t we just do the same sh*t in Los Santos and save the trouble? The only map expansion we’ve ever gotten and you can’t even do sh*t. It’s garbage.

You did ask if people realised they could go to the island whenever they want and now people are suddenly obsessed because they asked if it was without restrictions.. 🤔

Two different things. You can go back, whenever you want. I dont see the difference between that and it being in Free Roam. It being locked behind a loading screen is better as I can enjoy the sun and beach without some sub-humans screeching in my ear and getting f*cked by weaponised vehicles.

 

Remember the Diamond Rooftop Terrace?

Without restrictions might also mean being able to freely explore it whether it's freeroam or not

that’s not what I even meant. You can’t freely explore the island without getting thrown out. so what’s the point?

Doing what? Please, do tell. Taking selfies? Running across bland desert that uses the same tile set as the one we have had for seven years? Oh, I know...climbing the guard towers and looking at the same waves, beach and sun sets we have had since launch.

 

Look, to everyone, I get it. It would have been nice but I don't see the draw and how it's a dealbreaker for people. I like being able to go back to the party.

So, after we beat the heist, do we get to live in the mansion, à la Tommy Vercetti?  No?

Can't agree more

 

The way the island is included in the game shows how important it is to preserve it as something private

 

But in my opinion this new "map" is a way to show what Rockstar can release for the future of GTAO, and for the next-gen in particular.

 

I would totally see a city coming in a new update, like SF or LV.

no. We get to go back to our apartment in Los Santos and get drunk until we black out.

 

 

I guess the real map expansion was the suffering we endured along the way❤️

No. Please we have had enough of this seven year old game already. Dont encourage them to find more money cows to milk money from, let them start developing gta6 in peace.

 

Rockstar please no more updates no more magic hats with rabbits inside we already know how you care so much about us and our pockets. Just deliver VI and go along already.

It's a holiday destination instead of the same old sh*t on a new map. How fast do you think MkII's with sub-humans wanking on them would have appeared to camp the island if it was in free roam.

It's not like we have the choice lol

They already planned to develop GTAO as a stand-alone game and we don't need to be medium to expect at least 2/3 years more of waiting.

 

It's sure GTA 6 is already in development but they need to work. Except if you want a new Cyberpunk 2077

To be honest, it would have been very fun if the island air defences shot down anything that came too close like the yacht ones do. No weaponised vehicles at all. Civilian aircraft and watercraft are fine.
