GTA Online Asks Players To Steal A Collective $100 Billion In New Heist Challenge
Players can score a free vehicle if the goal is reached.
GTA Online, the multiplayer mode in Grand Theft Auto V, has announced a new collective Heist Challenge--this time asking the community to steal a collective $100 billion from any of the Online Heist Finales. If the goal is reached, all players will get a special vehicle for free in December, while players who actively participated in one of the heists will unlock a special bonus for their efforts.

If the community can collectively steal GTA$100 Billion across all GTA Online Heist Finales between now and November 18th, we’ll reward everybody with a special new vehicle, free of charge for a limited time this December.

The amount being asked for is pretty huge-- just a few billion dollars under the net worth of the world's second richest man, Bill Gates, or around half the net worth of the richest, Jeff Bezos. Luckily, cash is a little easier to come by in GTA than in the real world. To inspire players to get back into the game and get heisting, GTA Online is also offering a $1,000,000 bonus to everyone who logs in between now and November 18.
As an added incentive, Casino Heist Setup Fees have been discounted by 75% until the end of the challenge, making it a lot more tempting to give a heist a crack. Players have until November 18th to hit the lofty $100 billion goal and unlock the free vehicle, which hasn't yet been revealed.
While current editions of GTA V are playable on next-gen consoles with backwards compatibility, Rockstar is also planning to bring out next-gen versions of the game, along with a GTA Online standalone. The next-gen releases are planned for mid-2021. In December, a new GTA Online heist will be released.
