The biggest event in GTA Online’s seven-year history has burst onto the scene and it looks like a riot. Centred around a drug empire (what else?) with its nucleus situated on the titular Cayo Perico island, the Cayo Perico Heist offers up decadence in spades with a star-studded musical line-up that lends weight to the suspicion that all sources of entertainment will soon be rendered through our favourite online games. Which fits perfectly into our schedule.

"The Cayo Perico Heist is our way of bringing everyone together to party and dance in a safe way, while also giving players the chance to take it in our biggest and best Heist to date," said Sam Houser , founder of Rockstar Games. "It's been a tough and challenging year and we wanted to create something that everyone would enjoy - we can't wait for players to get started."
