Seven years after its debut, GTA Online is still going strong. With its latest and biggest update yet, The Cayo Perico Heist finally drops today. In this heist, you’re tasked by the Madrazo crime family to raid Cayo Perico, a near-impenetrable island fortress of El Rubio, the world’s most notorious narcotrafficker. Although you can play GTA Online: Cayo Perico Heist completely solo from start to finish; unfortunately, the island itself isn’t accessible in Free Mode.
Still, the update brings much new stuff for you and your friends to play around with back in Los Santos. Thanks to Rockstar Games’ official blog post and Reddit, we can take a look at what Rockstar is adding to the game with GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist.
