GTA Online Heists Revealed With Screenshots and New Trailer for PC and Consoles – Expected to Arrive Next Year

After a bunch of leaks and rumors regarding the upcoming highly awaited
update, Rockstar has finally revealed Heists – a much fun-packed feature
that is already a part of the developer’s all-time famous and
best-selling video game’s single player mode – for PC and console
version of GTA V’s online mode known as GTA Online. Heists will be added
to the online game mode early next year, and will come packed with
around 20 hours of gameplay as well as new weapons, vehicles and extra
items. You can check out the reveal trailer for GTA Online’s Heists
below.

Heists Headed to GTA Online Early Next Year – Will Feature New Gameplay, Vehicles, Weapons, and More Quality Stuff

GTA V fans have waited a long time for one of the most entertaining
features, which is included in the single player campaign of the game,
to be added to the online multiplayer mode, and while we still don’t
know about the specific release date, it has now been confirmed that
Rockstar is currently working the work on Heists for GTA Online. Heists
are simply new in-game jobs to keep you busy online, and give you a
plausible excuse to jump back into the game and start kicking some
action along with your friends and online multiplayer gamers.

Rockstar revealed in a detailed interview with IGN
that Heists will arrive for GTA Online in early 2015. With around 20
hours of new gameplay split over “five unique strands” and 20 new
missions in total, the GTA Online Heists update will allow players to
team up in four-player co-op mode and “plan, prepare and execute
multi-tiered Heists across Los Santos and Blaine County.” Along with new
gameplay, vehicles, weapons, clothing and more added stuff, the
upcoming update will come packed with rewards that will be handed out to
players for completing all five Heists in order, as well as completing
them in the new first-person mode on the latest consoles, and apparently
on PC as well.

Talking to IGN,
Imran Sarwar, GTA Online producer and lead mission designer, explained
how Heists will actually work in GTA V’s online multiplayer mode. He
said:

“Each heist requires 4 players all at rank 12 or above,
with one player as the designated heist leader. Leading a heist requires
owning a high-end apartment so that you have a room available to set up
the planning board. From there you’ll be able to launch missions as the
leader, starting with the prep work and building up to the score
itself.”
“Being a heist leader has advantages and disadvantages. On the
upside, Lester contacts the leader directly when there’s news of a job
and it’s up to the leader to invite players into the crew, assign
positions, pick outfits and allocate each player’s cut. On the other
hand, the heist leader will need to personally front the set-up costs in
order to successfully pull off the heist.”

Since Rockstar has not revealed a specific release date, so we can’t
say if GTA Online Heists will be ready in time for PC version of the
game, which hits the local markets on January  27, 2015, but there’s a
possibility that the developer might release the update with the
upcoming launch. You can check out the latest screenshots showing GTA
Online Heists in action in the gallery below. Note that you can always
