Once inside, you'll earn valuable evidence, art, gold and drug money, with Rockstar calling it the "biggest GTA Online adventure ever".

The developer has promised "a brand-new approach to Heist design that features the ability to play everything solo or with up to three other players", as well as new vehicles and weapons.

Aside from the heist itself, the island is a new map location, and players can expect new social spaces, too.

Interestingly, Rockstar is promising guest DJs, along with new songs and radio stations.

Oh, and just the small matter of a "heavily armed submarine HQ".
