DEEP UNDERCOVER: The update will include a new Submarine HQ

Among the vehicles will be a submarine, which has featured in the trailers. The sub will act as an HQ, as well as a vehicle, so it looks to play a vital role in the new Heist.

The submarine will cost you over $2 million but it looks epic!
