‘GTA Online’ takes us to a new island in its most ambitious expansion

The rumors came true: GTA Online will receive a new island in its next expansion. “The Cayo Perico Heist”As the DLC has been dubbed, it will take players to Cayo Perico, an island full of opportunities to line their pockets and interact with other users. The content will be free for all and It can be enjoyed from December 15 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and PC platforms.

As its name implies, it is a coup that will take place on the island of Cayo Perico. Rockstar Games notes that it is the largest content GTA Online has received since its launch in 2013, and they are right. This is the first time that the multiplayer variant of GTA V has added a territory of this size. Although new areas have debuted in the past, none reaches the magnitude of Cayo Perico.

Released a convicted spy from Bolingbroke Penitentiary. You have saved the world from an egotistical tech billionaire. And you’ve beaten the odds to exhaust a casino’s cash. This time you will face an entire island.

As explained, Cayo Perico belongs to the most famous drug dealer in the world of GTA Online. Being such a large territory, players will be able to choose how to initiate the hit to the island. Are you one of the people who prefers to shoot in neutralizing all enemies? You have the freedom to do so. However, if your thing is to be more cautious, you will have the option of evading the security forces of said drug trafficker.

The coup may be played in the company of other players or alone. They will add new weapons, vehicles and radio stations

As with previous GTA Online Heists, you will be able to choose team members to complete the mission. However, one of the main novelties of “The Cayo Perico Heist” is that you can do the hit completely alone. Of course, this represents a greater challenge due to the large number of obstacles found on the island. Will it be worth the risk? We can anticipate that, beyond money, the blow to Cayo Perico will allow you to obtain works of art of great value, gold and drugs.

Rockstar stresses that the Cayo Perico heist is the greatest adventure in GTA Online history. It’s also a fresh approach to heist level design, which to date has remained the most complex and interesting missions in the game. Finally, “The Cayo Perico Heist” brings with it new weapons, vehicles —Submarines, for example— and social spaces to interact with other players. Be careful, music is not far behind, as they will add new radio stations with more than 100 songs and international DJs will debut.
