Set for release on December 15, “the biggest GTA Online adventure ever” features an exotic island location and a fresh approach to heist design that enables users to play solo or with up to three other players.
The island of Cayo Perico is home to leading global drug trafficker El Rubio, who also happens to be a party animal.
“Cayo Perico is not only the nerve center of El Rubio’s drug empire, but the island also plays host to his other great love: marathon dance parties on golden beaches, where everyone from jetsetters and heiresses to legendary music producers gather to rave until the sun comes up,” reads the blurb accompanying the latest trailer.
“But away from the beach’s earthly delights lies an untold fortune in art, gold and drug money, scattered across the island. It’s the score of a lifetime for those who can find a way in.”
Rockstar is set to bring an “expanded and enhanced” version of GTA V to next-gen consoles in the second half of 2021, including a standalone version of GTA Online which will be free for PS5 owners for the first three months.
And the CEO of Rockstar owner Take-Two recently said the company hasn’t ruled out the possibility of releasing more free-to-play games based on its hit franchises.
