Rockstar teases new GTA Online heist amid new $100 Billion challenge

Rockstar Games has already begun to tease its next big Grand Theft Auto Online heist, as ‘The Heist Challenge’ is underway.

On November 12, Rockstar announced The Heist Challenge, where users need to steal $100 billion as a community.

“To help get ready for the upcoming release of the next evolution in Heist gameplay, the GTA Online community has the chance to take down a special kind of score,” they said.

Completing any Heist Finale over the next seven days will contribute to the global haul. If players can complete the task by November 18, the entire community will be given a new vehicle for free.

While all this sounds great, there’s still no telling what the new heist will be, or how it will “evolve” gameplay.

Previously, Rockstar has stated that its next heist will be in “an entirely new location.” It is a rather vague statement and has caused many players to wonder just what the company has in store.

New heist teased?

That all said, some players have discovered clues pointing to the new heist. Twitter user ‘TezFunz2’ posted some photos detailing his findings.

Over at the Diamond Casino, some construction work has begun. This seems rather odd, because the previous heist took place at the casino, so it’s possible this could be related to prep work.

It’s also possible that the new heist returns to the casino in this new location currently under construction.

Notably, Tom Connors also sends players a message reading: “Dear member, in spite of construction work at the Diamond, please be assured noise levels are low and champagne sales are high.”

Tom doesn’t reveal what is under construction.

It will be interesting to see if this new heist ends up correlating to the rerelease of GTA 5 on PlayStation 5 in the near future, where GTA Online will be free for the first three months.

Not much is known so far about the Rockstar hit and its next-gen port, except that it will be available in the second half of 2021 and will feature some improvements to graphics and performance.


How to complete FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

EA SPORTS have rolled out a new Team of the Week-themed SBC in FIFA 21, allowing you to stock up on TOTW players. So, here’s what you need to know.

For the most part, squad building challenges – or SBCs – are focused on giving FIFA fans the chance to unlock special variant cards of their favorite players. 

These are usually like Player of the Month, Flashback, Player Moments, Road to the Final, or a number of different promos, but EA also sprinkles in something different at times too. These unique SBCs can be focused on cosmetics like kits, badges, and stadium upgrades – but there are also the ‘lucky bag’ type SBCs too. 

These SBCs come out at different points of the seasons, and the rewards are either completely random or locked to one particular set of cards. This time around, it’s all about Team of the Week.

We’ve already seen stars like Erling Haaland receive TOTW cards in FIFA 21, but that doesn’t stop them from getting multiple.

Current TOTW Upgrade FIFA 21 SBC requirements

The SBC, called the Current TOTW Upgrade, isn’t all that difficult to grasp. You’ve got to build one squad, and in return, you’ll be given a Team of the Week pack. Unlike the previous TOTW Upgrade, the pack you get for this SBC is locked to the week you open it – rather than the past few weeks. 

With the reward being pretty random – there is no set rating for the player you’ll receive – EA haven’t rolled out an entirely difficult SBC. No, it’s just an 83-rated team, so you can hand over quite a bit of fodder to complete it, if you’ve got unusable cards in your club. 

You will, though, need to also have at least 50 team chemistry when its all said and done – so it can’t just a pile of random cards. But, again, it isn’t difficult. 

  • Current TOTW Upgrade: Min.83 Squad Rating, Min. 50 Team Chemistry, 11 players in the squad. Reward: TOTW Pack. 

Cheap solutions for FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

Now, if you haven’t got useless cards upon useless cards stocked in your club, you will have to fork out to get the SBC completed. Though, it’s not incredibly expensive.

According to FUTBin, starting it from scratch will cost around 20,000-24,000 coins. But, we’ve got a few solutions that should save you a few coins too. 

Aside from bagging a guaranteed TOTW Card, the SBC is repeatable, so you can try your lcuk over and over – providing you have the coins or cards to do so.
