When does GTA Online’s Cayo Perico heist release? Map, Submarine HQ

Rockstar have officially announced the Cayo Perico Heist, and we have everything you need to know about the new island, HQ, and more.

Rockstar Games have officially announced the latest GTA Online Heist, bringing a new island called Cayo Perico and plenty of new additions to the game. Here’s everything you need to know about the next major update.

It’s been a long wait for a new GTA Heist, with the Diamond Casino job releasing almost a full year ago back in December 2019.

Finally, Rockstar have announced that players will be heading to a new location for their next heist, with the luxury private island of Cayo Perico playing host to the next chapter of GTA Online.

When does the Cayo Perico heist launch in GTA Online?

GTA Online players will need to mark December 15 in their calendars, as that is the date they’ll be able to explore Cayo Perico for the first time.

Rockstar claim this is the “biggest GTA Online adventure ever,” including “an all-new heist location” along with a “brand-new approach to Heist design.”

Where is GTA Online’s Cayo Perico island?

Cayo Perico is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before in GTA Online and marks the first time we are leaving San Andreas since GTA V released back in 2013.

The exotic island is one of the most secure private islands in the world, and home to the world’s most notorious drug dealer. Making it to Cayo Perico will be easy, but breaching it’s defenses, evading and eliminating the heavily armed guards, and escaping with the dealer’s valuable evidence, gold, art, and money won’t be.

Where Cayo Perico sits in the world of Grand Theft Auto remains somewhat of a mystery, but one eagle-eyed fan noticed that the shape of the island spotted in the first teaser looks almost identical to Haiti.

New Submarine HQ

A new heist wouldn’t be complete without a brand-new HQ, and players will be heading under the waves when they get their hands on their submarine.

Heavily armed, the submarine will give players a location to plan their attacks from, and also provide somewhere to hide should the action on the island get a little too dangerous. Rockstar also claim there will be plenty of surprises inside the new HQ, although what they are remain unknown.

What else is new in GTA Online’s Cayo Perico heist?

On top of all the above, players will also be able to acquire new vehicles and tactical weapons, new social areas to party with friends, world-class guest DJs, and also find new radio stations with over 100 new songs to listen to as you cruise around the island.

More information is being revealed about the GTA Online Cayo Perico heist regularly, so be sure to check back to Charlie Intel as we continue to update this article.

Free Kosatka Submarine Sonar Station

The Cayo Perico Heist was a substantial update for GTA Online and added lots of new content to the game. One of the most significant items that came with it was the Kosatka Submarine.

Primarily used for planning the Heist itself, the Kosatka is a cool vehicle to own and it has lots of expensive upgrades to improve its capabilities. One of those improvements is the Sonar Station that can be used to find Treasure Chests in GTA Online.

If you were to buy this normally, it would put a hole in your wallet as it costs $1.2 million. So getting it for free feels like a no-brainer.

Comet Safari 80% Off

This off-road beast with enough headlights to illuminate a street is greatly reduced thanks to Prime Rewards.

In normal circumstances, the Comet Safari would cost $710,000, but thanks to a massive 80% discount, you can pick up this cool cat for the low price of $142,000.

Here’s the official description of it:

Is there nothing the Pfister Comet cannot do? If you were a venture capitalist looking for the shortest route to your next midlife crisis, the Comet was your first and only choice. If you wanted something that preserved the classic reek of desperation but added a street-racer twist, the Retro Custom was top of the list. And now, if you’re looking for something to slam around a hairpin bend in three feet of uphill mud, the Comet Safari has got you covered
Please note: Weapon modifications can only be applied at a Vehicle Workshop inside an Avenger or Mobile Operations Center.

GT500 80% Off

If you look up the definition of vintage, you’ll probably see a picture of the GT500 in all of its resplendent glory.

This classically-inspired vehicle normally retails for $785,000, but there’s a tasty 80% discount available this month which has brought the price down to only $157,000.

Here’s the official description of it:

If you’re looking for a car that puts function ahead of form, you’re in the wrong boutique. Sure, you can try to drive the GT500 straight from A to B. But on the way, you’ll find you’re taking in pretty much every other letter of the alphabet, and they’re spelling out something obscene in Italian. Your only choice is light a cigarette, strike a pose, contemplate how stunningly attractive this car makes you look, and enjoy the ride.

Zorrusso 70% Off

This is going to be your big opportunity to acquire one of the most stunning cars in all of GTA Online. The Zorrusso looks like the peak of motor manufacturing and it would rightfully warrant $1,925,000 of your cash.

But for being a beneficiary of Prime Gaming Rewards, you will be able to buy one for just $577,500!

Here’s the official description of the carrier:

It takes a special kind of visionary to sit behind the wheel of a hypercar while it flirts outrageously with the sound barrier and seriously ask the question “Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if we could put the top down?” But then the folks at Pegassi are nothing if not visionary, and nothing if not special.

We hope all of this newfound knowledge serves you well. You should now be able to link up your accounts and can look forward to a year’s worth of great GTA Online rewards.
