Ahead of their release next week, Rockstar has further detailed the online heists mode coming to Grand Theft Auto V.
As previously announced, each four-man group that attempts a heist will need to designate one player as a leader. This player will need to be at least rank 12, own a high-end apartment (one that's equipped with the all-important planning board), and have the necessary cash to pay the upfront setup costs.
The leader will have the power to designate roles for all four players at different points. These might include serving as lookouts or bodyguards for someone buying information, or it could involve piloting a helicopter versus infiltrating some kind of building.
One important aspect of choosing a leader is that heist progress is only saved with that person. In other words, you'll want someone reliable in that role.
Each of the five heists has what's called an Elite Challenge. This is meant to be extremely difficult, but completing one "will yield a substantial cash bonus." for the heist.
Unlike Elite Challenges, which can be completed repeatedly, Special Heist Completion bonuses are one-time-only achievements that reward you with bonus in-game cash.
The four special bonuses are as follows:
- First Time: Completing each Heist Finale for the first time, will net you a bonus cash reward
- All In Order Challenge: Complete all Heists in order, including Setups, to receive a $1,000,000 cash bonus
- Loyalty Challenge: Complete all Heists, including Setups, with the same team of players to receive an additional $1,000,000 bonus
- Criminal Mastermind Challenge: Complete all Heists, in order, with the same group of players, without losing any lives, to receive a massive $10,000,000 bonus
Rockstar suggests that players communicate with others using headsets, and that they ensure they have the proper gear. Special equipment will be provided as necessary, but coming equipped with suppressed weapons and RPGs is recommended, and having four-door vehicles with armor should prove useful.
Console versions of GTA V are being updated with online heists--and a bunch of other content for GTA Online--next Tuesday, March 10.
