Heists for Grand Theft Auto Online is a mode that player’s have been waiting over a year for, and now Rockstar has released a new trailer that gives a quick look at the mode. The trailer starts with the words “I know you’ve been complaining, but you weren’t ready,” which seems like a bit of a dig towards players. How dare you complain for not getting something you expected near launch over a year later? Even though we have a new trailer there isn’t actually a release date either, outside of early 2015.
The heists mode itself does look rather fun though, and they were some of my favourite bits from the single player side of the game. The online version looks to have everything included from planning how to carry out a heist, to going through each stage like acquiring vehicles and information of the target. Heists will require four players and all of them have to be above level 12. Heist leaders will have to pay for all the gear too, and won’t receive cash back until the final mission in a heist is complete. Other players in the crew will be paid for each mission in a heist. There will be a total of five heists, with 20 missions in total split between them. According to Rockstar these will add 20 hours of gameplay to GTA Online.
If you’ve left GTA Online behind will the heists bring you back?
