Early yesterday Rockstar announced that the much anticipated Heist missions for Grand Theft Auto Online would be coming early in 2015. The cheers and cries from the masses could be heard for miles.
It’s been a long time coming as originally Heists were a planned addition for the game last April but hit a snag and slipped into the summer which ultimately again fell under the radar with a TBD listing. For those of you that have played Grand Theft Auto V, these missions will feel familiar as a group of four players plan, execute, and escape multi-tiered heists across the city. They were some of my favorite moments from the core game so it’s great to see them finally get added into the online component.
Based on information and screenshots, it appears these heists will incorporate many different types of vehicles from jets to helicopters, to aircraft carriers. Yeah, I’m curious to see that one myself. If you want to get the nitty gritty details behind what happened to this mode, definitely have a look at this interview up on IGN.
In case you were curious, when Heists are finally added, it’ll be for the great price of free across all platforms. The better news is that Rockstar also put together a brand new trailer to give you a glimpse as to what you can expect and even maybe to build the hype meter back up. Enjoy!
