Heists are coming...!!!


Recommended Posts

GTA Online Heists are coming early in 2015 - check out the new trailer for the four-player co-op mode for Grand Theft Auto Online that allows players to plan, prepare and execute multi-tiered Heists across Los Santos and Blaine County. These will require tight communication and coordination, with players taking on specified roles at each point to accomplish multiple objectives on the way to eac...

For those that don't like to read long articles, here's heists explained:
"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.
Unlike the leader, other crew members get a cash payout for each prep mission, while the leader won’t receive their cash until the finale is complete. Switching between the roles of crew member and heist leader will give players a totally different experience, and we had to make sure there were real incentives to playing each position so that players would see every aspect of how a heist comes together and not just want to stick to the same role each time.
Some missions have all players working as one unit, some require players to take on specific tasks like hacking or crowd control, while others require players to split into smaller teams to complete separate high value objectives. For example, one team may be stealing a getaway car from some gangsters while another team is attempting to sneak into a police station, all within the same prep mission. We really want to push the co-op aspect and make players feel like they need to communicate effectively and work together to pull off each element.
Each finale is a big set-piece mission with players taking on multiple roles. All through this, players will be gaining access to new vehicles, new weapons, new items and new clothing, as well as visiting some surprising locations and interacting with some familiar characters from the story."

"There are five unique strands involving over 20 total missions, which will add up to around 20 hours of gameplay."

Very excited!


Heists look much more than I expected that's for sure.


The only disappointing bit for me is 4 players only, would have been great if a couple were 6 or even 8 players.

Hopefully I can by and live on the carrier, that's not to much to ask is it?

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

My level of care is zero on heists.  They have been "coming" since October 2013.

Not with gameplay footage they haven't  :P.


Heists were never ready, they obviously are now or else they wouldn't release a trailer.

This is great as far as I'm concerned. I'm actually happy they haven't been released yet. And I don't mind waiting for them because by the look of the trailer they're gonna be well worth it.  Yay Rockstar  : SLOBBER :

Same here. Never cared much for it until I saw this trailer and read the interview. All those new goodies ... new game features ... on both platforms ... with this crew ... I cannot do anything else but : SLOBBER :


The fact they have now actual footage is making me hopeful that we won't get another 'Spring 2014' bummer. Let's hope for the best, prepare for the worst ;)

The video was neat, but my only gripe is that if it actually comes out there has been so many delays and speculation that I feel that going into a heist once out with any form expectation is going to end in disappointment.

That's not to say I won't go into it with an open mind, but it's had so much anticipation that I'm basically over it before it starts. I honestly hope I'm wrong and love it when it comes out.
