Rockstar Games announced that Heists are now available to play in GTA Online, the highly-anticipated gameplay mode had been delayed for a few weeks prior to this morning’s launch. The Heist update will arrive as a free download for all players on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and the PlayStation 4. PC players can look forward to playing Heists at launch when the game finally releases on the platform on April 14.
Heists are a new type of gameplay experience inside GTA Online. The gamemode includes massive, multi-layered, 4-player co-operative missions that encourage players to work together and make the most of their individual strengths. Utilizing team communication and player coordination, the team must undertake new missions for the ultimate payoff. Online Heists span numerous missions featuring new gameplay, vehicles, weapons, and scenarios to test a team’s full set of skills: from computer hacking to stealth infiltration, precision driving to aerial dogfighting, sniping, skydiving and much more. There are five total Heists including an initial introductory Heist for two players.
