Rockstar Games on Friday revealed that Grand Theft Auto Online is receiving a big update that will raise player stakes and introduce new features.

In the new Cayo Perico Heist, players travel to a secure private island they have to "evade or neutralize the heavily armed security forces stationed there, and escape with valuable evidence along with as much art, gold and drug money as you can carry." They can choose their tools and crew to fulfill the mission.

This heist can be played solo or with up to three others, and there will be new vehicles and tactical weapons to take advantage of. In addition, there are new social spaces for players to party in with guest DJs and hundreds of radio stations.

The update will be available Dec. 15, with more information coming soon.

View the trailer below, which not only shows off the sprawling island, but the armed submarine headquarters.
