GTA Online is bringing us to Cayo Perico in their upcoming heist.
Earlier this week, Rockstar Games released a teaser trailer for the latest GTA Online update. We found out a few details about the new heist called the Cayo Perico. It will also serve as a map expansion by adding a whole new island to the world of Los Santos.
The heist is scheduled for release on December 15. Take a look at the new trailer for the update below.
After the trailer dropped, Rockstar made a new blog post in which they laid out some new information about the event. In it they told players:
“Prepare to infiltrate the remote island compound of the world’s most notorious drug dealer in Grand Theft Auto Online’s biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition yet: The Cayo Perico Heist.
“It’s up to you to find a way to breach Cayo Perico, one of the most secure private islands in the entire world, evade or neutralize the heavily armed security forces stationed there, and escape with valuable evidence along with as much art, gold and drug money as you can carry.
“Choose your tools. Choose your approach. Choose your crew – or even go it entirely alone. Just make it back to Los Santos in one piece.
“The Cayo Perico Heist is the biggest GTA Online adventure ever, introducing an all-new exotic Heist location, with a brand-new approach to Heist design that features the ability to play everything solo or with up to three other players. Plus you can acquire new vehicles and tactical weapons, experience new social spaces to dance and party in with your friends, and new world-class guest DJs, and listen to new radio stations with over 100 new songs. Oh, and a very large, very versatile, and very heavily armed submarine HQ with plenty of other surprises.”
The description implies that we’ll most likely get to the new island via a submarine. At the very least, the underwater vessel will come into play in some manner during the heist.
This is the first map expansion in GTA Online, and it follows May’s Series A Funding heist. Rockstar is providing new details very quickly, so we’ll keep this piece updated as we learn more.
How to unlock the GTA Online Prize Ride vehicle
As part of the Los Santos Tuners update, players can now earn a Prize Ride vehicle, and here’s how you can do it.
Another incentive for GTA Online players is the new Prize Ride vehicle challenge in which players can win a Warrener HKR for free. Our quick guide will show you what to do, and how to do it.
The Los Santos Tuners update is certainly up there with the Cayo Perico update in terms of importance. Many players love to buy cars, mod them how they see fit, and parade them around the city.
As well as adding new cars and collectibles, the new update has also welcomed a fun new challenge for players to complete. The Prize Ride can be obtained by meeting a certain requirement, and we’ll detail everything below.
Unlocking the Los Santos Tuners Prize Ride
The Los Santos Tuners update has cool cut-scenes, meet-ups, and all sorts of content to satisfy car enthusiasts. But if you’re looking to extend your garage’s repertoire of wheels, then you have a chance to add the Warrener HKR to it – for nothing at all.
To acquire your own Warrener HKR car, you’ll quite simply need to win five Sprint Races in GTA Online.
That’s the simple condition you will need to meet to win a free Warrener HKR. A solid-looking pick-up truck, the Warrener HKR would be good for carrying out some dirty work around Los Santos.

Here’s the official description of the Warrener HKR:
“Looking for something sturdy and reliable? Sometimes the car you need isn’t the one you came in to buy. It’s like going to the pound and being drawn to the old dog with three legs, one eye, and a real bad compulsion to hump anything that moves. If you can convince yourself that everyone is saying “ew” and “wtf” because it’s just so gosh-darn adorable, the Warrener HKR is all set to be a companion for life.”

GTA Online July Prime Gaming Rewards
100% Rebate on Strawberry Auto Shop
Taking a turn from the norm of offering expensive cars for cheap, members have a fabulous opportunity to own an Auto Shop if they don’t already.
If you already do, then you will get a tax rebate on the property, meaning you will be refunded $1,705,000, and still own the shop.
80% Off Coquette BlackFin
It’s just better to keep the roof down as you’re driving this 1950s-looking sports car down the streets of Los Santos. Style matters. The Coquette BlackFin’s retail price is $695,000, but a hefty discount brings it down to just $139,000.
Here’s the official description of the Coquette BlackFin:
“Ah, America in the 1950s. It’s easy to spot the moment when Freudian psychosexual theory met car design and what a glorious pairing it was. This Coquette couldn’t be more phallic if it was dragging a pair of hairy beach balls. It even smells like cigar smoke, conservative values, and semen. Get out your checkbook because this golden age of repression won’t resurrect itself.”
80% Off BR8
Sometimes you need to dispense with the ordinary and just speed around the streets in an F1 car. It’s fast and feels like it’s worth the hefty price tag of $3,400,000 it normally comes paired with. However, thanks to Prime Gaming, the BR8 can be yours for just $1,700,000.
Here’s the official description of the BR8:
“The original race version of the BR8 was a complicated machine. Constructed from over four hundred separate controls, it required inhuman dexterity and a PhD in astrophysics just to start the engine. Benefactor have simplified this into a handful of brightly colored buttons and a colossal insurance premium. Killing yourself has never been so user-friendly.”
It’s definitely worth making sure your Rockstar Social Club and Prime Gaming accounts are linked, with more offers and discounts dropping every month.

Z-Type Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward
The Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel has put a free Z-Type up for grabs for Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel players to try and spin to win this week.
Pardon its unusual and retro-looking shape, as the bulky Z-Type classic car boasts a fabulous interior, and is a well-crafted car to cruise around in. Quality like this doesn’t come cheap, usually, with the Z-Type normally costing $950,000, but with one spin, it can be yours for free.
Here’s the official description of the Z-Type:
“Weather the new Great Depression with a car from the last Great Depression. When this rolled off the production line in 1937, minorities and women knew their place. It was the world’s fastest automobile. Now it’s the world’s most expensive second-hand automobile. One of only 10 ever made, the Z-Type is a car you can really enjoy sitting in, surrounded by armed guards, too terrified to actually drive it anywhere.”
