Rockstar has once again taken to its official newsfeed to announce a slew of exciting new updates for GTA V Online.

The one that will probably excite gamers the most, is the introduction of heists – the signature criminal activities from  Grand Theft Auto V’s story mode –  to the online mode.

Additionally, Rockstar claims that it will also launch even more additions to both the online and offline components of its hugely popular open-world title later this year. They will  include more holiday-themed updates, some Story Mode DLCs and much more.

Here’s a brief rundown of some of the new content you can expect to see this spring, in the words of Rockstar:

Heists:  Coming this spring to Grand Theft Auto Online, team up with your most trusted Crew members or with random other mercenaries in Grand Theft Auto Online to pull off cooperative Heist Missions for glory and profit. We know many in the GTA Online community have been looking forward to this update – stay tuned for much more information to come.

Capture Creator:  Coming next week, the Creator community will be able to make their own original customized Capture Jobs and add to  the over 3.5 million (and counting) player-created Deathmatches and Races  currently available on Social Club. Strategically place pick-ups, define weaponry, set location, and tweak tons of other variables to make your own unique Capture Job for others to take on. We will also be reviewing your homemade Capture creations to stamp standout experiences as Rockstar Verified.

The High Life Update:  The High Life Update will allow you to expand your foothold in Los Santos with new high-end apartment options, the powerful Bullpup Rifle, new wardrobe items, the Dinka Thrust motorcycle and three new lavish cars to choose from, including the Super class Pegassi Zentorno. The High Life Update will also feature the debut of multi-property ownership in GTA Online, which means you’ll be able to own two distinct properties (with garages) simultaneously. All this plus the new Mental State player statistic, which is designed to let you see just how passive or psychotically unhinged fellow players in your session really are, and a slew of new Jobs.
