GTA Online Heist Cayo Perico Heist Expansion Takes You To A New Island, Playable Solo

You can play the new heist with others or by yourself, and it involves a submarine HQ.

Following some teases, Rockstar has announced the next heist update for Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer component, GTA Online. The Cayo Perico heist is different in that it's set on an entirely new location, the titular Cayo Perico island.

The heist is said to be the "biggest GTA Online adventure ever," tasking you with breaching Cayo Perico, which is described as "one of the most secure private islands in the entire world." You'll be stealing art, gold, and drug money while dealing with the island's security.

 

Rockstar says it's taken a "brand-new approach" to heist design for Cayo Perico. One major component of that change is the ability to play the heist with three other players, as per usual, or to take on the challenge by yourself. It's unclear if you'll get any kind of AI backup, but it sounds as if you'll be going it alone.

You can get a brief look at what to expect in the video above, which shows off the island and the "very heavily armed" submarine that serves as your headquarters. Rockstar says there are surprises in store for players, but you can also expect new social spaces where you can dance and party, new vehicles and "tactical" weapons, guest DJs, and new radio stations with more than 100 new songs to listen to.

The Cayo Perico heist releases for free on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on December 15. The console versions are both playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, respectively, with native versions of GTA V on the way.

We remember

Lest we forget

The Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War beta already has some cheaters

 

And console players are once again turning off crossplay to avoid them.

It's incredibly embarrassing. We get invited to play some Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War with our buds on their consoles, and what do we do? We infect them with lice. Yep, a new Call of Duty means that once again scoundrels using hacks on PC are ruining it for everyone. 

The Cold War beta is open to all at the moment, and has been extended until October 20, but this opening of the floodgates has allowed the cheaters to experiment with disruptive behavior before the game's even released. There's quite a bit of footage of hacks in action doing the rounds already, and as Eurogamer's noted, console players are responding by turning off crossplay

Crossplay is great. It keeps populations up, improves skill-based matchmaking, breaks down arbitrary platform barriers, and it's something loads of people have passionately advocated for—especially when Sony dug its heels in—so it sucks to see it undone by the presence of a comparatively small number of killjoys. It happened in Modern Warfare as well. 

Once the beta ends tomorrow, everything will be wiped clean, making it even more pointless. It's not a shortcut to progression, because there is no meaningful progression, leaderboards or any kind of glory. While no doubt frustrating, however, this will hopefully give Treyarch a better idea of what it needs to prepare for when Cold War launches on November 13. 

 

 

Call Of Duty: Warzone's Subway Location Map Revealed Ahead Of Season 6

Need to catch a ride to escape the closing circle? Or looking for new tunnels to wage war in? Season 6 of Modern Warfare has you covered.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is approaching its sixth season of content, with an earlier teaser trailer revealing its September 29 release date. Along with returning characters, Season 6 is bringing with it firefights underground which will take place in a new subway system underneath Warzone's map.

Verdansk is being updated with an entire subway network that will let you zip around its large land mass when Season 6 arrives. The map shared shows a few stops that the train will make as it circles around the map, letting you hop aboard for a quick ride. Of course, it's unlikely that you'll be the only player thinking about this, giving you another space to both hunt and avoid foes in.

Some disclaimers on the image make it sound like the subway system will be a way to circumvent the deadly gas above ground that will kill you if you find yourself outside of the encroaching circle. The train will also not stop at stations that are engulfed in gas, which narrows down your ability to escape if you've already been caught out above.

Season 6 of Modern Warfare is also bringing back two characters from the game's campaign, namely freedom-fighter Farah and Soviet soldier Nikolai. There's no indication if this will be the last season for the shooter considering the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is less than two months away. Activision has confirmed, however, that Warzone will remain operational and incorporate elements from Cold War after its release.
