The Stalwarts at Rockstar are going head to head with PUBG as they release their new Heist for Grand Theft Auto Online— titled The Doomsday Heist.
The DLC is an epic adventure that’ll take you far outside of the Los Santos streets.
Revealed recently by Rockstar Games, the trailer for The Doomsday Heist will make you want to get back into GTA Online if you’ve been taking a break. Jetpacks, tanks, underwater fights, and stealth missions are just parts of everything that The Doomsday Heist has in store when it launches across all platforms on Dec. 12.
The Doomsday Heist update focuses on a storyline where the GTA Online Protagonists are reunited by Lester Crest and a new character, billionaire Avon Hertz. The protagonist, Lester, and Avon unite with government agents, including Agent 14 and an unknown intelligence agent.
Avon believes that an unknown foreign entity is trying to start a war and would put San Andreas and the United States under a “doomsday scenario”. The crew will be involved in several missions with the corresponding military-grade vehicles and weapons.
A description posted alongside the trailer on Rockstar Games’ site shared more details about the first heist that GTA Online has had in a while.
“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”
Since the reveal, the Twitter account for Rockstar Games has been sharing post after post with new screenshots and details on the heist.
From land to sea to sky, The Doomsday Heist will cover all areas of GTA Online, but you won’t have to complete all of these missions alone– you’ll be able to complete the missions alongside friends with groups of up to four players at once.
