The GTA Online Cayo Perico heist update is here and on top of the new heist and nightclub, there are nine new vehicles to get your hands on – with plenty more coming soon. 

After lots of hype and speculation, GTA Online’s annual winter update is now live and can be downloaded. The focus of the new patch is, of course, the Cayo Perico heist where you can steal millions from El Rubio. 

On top of that, though, Rockstar have also added a handful of new vehicles to the game – including the $2,000,000 submarine which will be used to co-ordinate the heist. More vehicles will release over time, so take that into consideration before splashing the cash. 

So, here’s everything you need to know about them, including just how much they’re going to set you back when you hit the buy button.

Even though Cayo Perico is not accessible in free roam, there are a handful of new boats for you to get so that you can sail the high seas and do battle. 

That includes the Kurtz 31 gunboat, which was showcased in the trailer for the heist. The gunboat is priced at between $2,216,250 and $2,995,000 depending on what upgrade you want.

Additionally, there is also a new speedboat called the Longfin which is available from Dock Tease. It’s trade price is $1,593,750 but if you don’t have access to that, be prepared to spend $2,125,000.

If taking to the sky is more your thing, there is a new helicopter and new plane available in the Cayo Perico update via Warstock Cache and Carry. 

These include the Annihilator helicopter which is priced at $2,902,500 and will work similarly to the police helicopter that has been available in GTA Online for quite some time. There is also the Sparrow helicopter, which can actually be stored on the Kosatka submarine.

There are only a few vehicles available in GTA’s new update.

New cars from GTA Online Cayo Perico update

As of writing, Grand Theft Auto Online developers have are keeping their cards close to their chest regarding new cars in Los Santos, adding only one in the Cayo Perico heist update – the Toreador. 

This new car is available from Warstock Cache and Carry for $3,660,000 and can be seen above in the screenshot from GTAGFX

As previously noted, there will be plenty of new cars that are drip-fed over time, so you’ll just have to keep checking the different in-game stores to see what’s been released and when. 


Some of these prices will more than likely be changed in the future, so if you’re hurting for cash, you can hold on for just a little bit. 

Plus, there’s always the chance that they’re available on the Diamond Casino spin wheel at some point in the future too, so you could even get them for free.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
