The last big content update for GTA Online introduced the Diamond Casino, a new zone where players can gamble, purchase a luxurious penthouse, and accept new missions from a new cast of characters.
Grand Theft Auto Online’s new Diamond Casino Heist is available starting today, and Rockstar Games has shared more about the activities players may pursue in the big run-up to robbing the Diamond blind. Foremost among them the return of classic Degenatron gaming!
Three Degenatron cabinets are among the parodies and diversions available to the new Pixel Pete’s Arcade property that players can buy out, recondition, and open up. The arcade is a front operation for planning the heist and getting the crew together. But, of course, it needs to look like an arcade.
Heists in GTA Online are a set of lucrative missions that are tougher than your average job, but have a payout to match. The last heist was related to a doomsday bunker, and was released two years ago.
Underneath, the basement hideout is where players will work at three planning boards, and practice cracking vaults and hacking doors. The planning boards are where players will record the intel they gather from all of their prep missions.
As for the heist itself, players will be able to take one of three tactical approaches to looting the Diamond — stealth, guns blazing, and a middle ground using disguise.
Eleven new vehicles are joining GTA Online with today’s update, five of them to help with heist activities. Side activities include destroying signal jamming towers and finding and eliminating the Los Santos Slasher (with an antique weapon as a reward).
Players will also get access to a new commercial venture: a retro arcade business property. This will work as a staging ground for heists, where players can practice hacking and vault cracking minigames. There will also be a very handy Master Control Terminal, allowing players to manage all of their businesses from one place, which is a huge quality of life addition for GTA Online.
