NOW GTA Doomsday Heist is available for PS4, Xbox One ,PC, IOS and for Android. The new versions of the game, the update also appears to add new vehicles and equipment to GTA V’s multiplayer mode. All previous updates to GTA Online have been free, so we’d assume this will be too.
The Doomsday Heist itself looks to be an even less serious approach to high crime than we’re used to from GTA Online – the trailer includes an existential threat on Los Santos, an AI called Clifford, futuristic jetpacks and tanks and, most excitingly, flying DeLorean-style and submersible Lotus Esprit-style cars.
The official press release describes it as:
“A billionaire tech mogul, an idealistic intelligence agent, a socially awkward conspiracy theorist and a neurotic supercomputer have been forced into an unlikely alliance to save San Andreas from total annihilation.
“As apocalyptic threats mount from enemies unknown, you and your criminal crew are enlisted to un-tangle mysteries and eradicate threats spanning from the bustling streets of downtown Los Santos to the ocean floor and all the way to the inner depths of Mount Chiliad in an epic new online adventure.”
GTA Online players have spent years trying to unravel the mystery of Mount Chilliad, deciphering glyphs, analyzing clues and poking about UFOs. Their years of tireless investigating may finally be coming to a head with “The Doomsday Heist.” As one Redditor put it, “r/chilliadmystery just busted a nut at the sight of that jet pack.”
Here’s the trailer.
