GTA Online is bringing us to Cayo Perico in their upcoming heist.

Earlier this week, Rockstar Games released a teaser trailer for the latest GTA Online update. We found out a few details about the new heist called the Cayo Perico. It will also serve as a map expansion by adding a whole new island to the world of Los Santos.

The heist is scheduled for release on December 15. Take a look at the new trailer for the update below.

After the trailer dropped, Rockstar made a new blog post in which they laid out some new information about the event. In it they told players:

“Prepare to infiltrate the remote island compound of the world’s most notorious drug dealer in Grand Theft Auto Online’s biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition yet: The Cayo Perico Heist.

“It’s up to you to find a way to breach Cayo Perico, one of the most secure private islands in the entire world, evade or neutralize the heavily armed security forces stationed there, and escape with valuable evidence along with as much art, gold and drug money as you can carry.

“Choose your tools. Choose your approach. Choose your crew – or even go it entirely alone. Just make it back to Los Santos in one piece.

“The Cayo Perico Heist is the biggest GTA Online adventure ever, introducing an all-new exotic Heist location, with a brand-new approach to Heist design that features the ability to play everything solo or with up to three other players. 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.”

The description implies that we’ll most likely get to the new island via a submarine. At the very least, the underwater vessel will come into play in some manner during the heist.

This is the first map expansion in GTA Online, and it follows May’s Series A Funding heist. Rockstar is providing new details very quickly, so we’ll keep this piece updated as we learn more.
