Is it time to revisit GTA Online? The biggest expansion yet just dropped

The Cayo Perico Heist

GTA Online continues to live on after its 2013 debut, as Rockstar continues to pump resources into this money-maker.

At this point it’s tough to say when GTA VI should actually come out from a financial perspective; as it would behoove Rockstar to avoid oversaturating their own online market and have people jump ship if the main squeeze is still healthy. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me to see GTA VI‘s online component arrive much later.

Either way, today, GTA Online players feast. The free Cayo Perico Heist update is out, but it’s more than just a heist. Rockstar is calling it the “biggest update ever,” with a substantial geographical landmass increase, alongside of a new club, extra music and DJ performances, and more vehicles, clothing, and weapons. 

The most significant part of the update for me? Rockstar says that this is the “first heist that’s playable completely solo from start to finish,” on top of the open-ended nature of the event. So even if you’re pressed for time and don’t want to wait for Mark to show up 20 minutes late to every online session (Mark!), you can just run it on your own schedule.

Oh and one more thing: if you log in between December 18 and December 20, you’ll get a free Dinka Veto Classic go-kart.
