The new radio stations include:
- Still Slipping Los Santos - UK DJ Joy Orbison's pirate radio station

Rockstar's new Cayo Perico Heist Trailer features everything from secret raves on a private island, to a submarine HQ and a drug empire run by a chap called El Rubio.

Max Payout for New Missions
Twitter user, @TezFunz2, spotted some interesting details in the most recent Cayo Perico Heist trailer that point towards the max payout of the new missions.
As you can see above, the new trailer included the names of what we suspect to be two new missions and their payouts. These included:
- Madrazo Files - $1,100,000
- Secondary Targets - $2,848,800
These two payouts would put the total max payout at around the $4 million - not too shabby!
The Cayo Perico Heist Explained
Rockstar has revealed that in this heist we'll be taking on an entire island!
Players will have to 'infiltrate the remote island compound of the world’s most notorious drug dealer in Grand Theft Auto Online’s biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition yet'.
Rockstar, you had our curiosity, but now you have our attention...
Infiltrate the island
The heist will be based around your infiltration of the island, evading heavily armed security forces to steal valuable evidence, before escaping the island with as much art, gold and drug money as you can!
Choose your approach
Rockstar has confirmed that this heist can be approached in many different ways, with the ability to choose your own tools, plan and crew.
You can even take on the whole island alone!
As you've worked out by now, the Cayo Perico Heist is set in an all-new exotic Heist location, but that's not all.
New Features, Vehicles & Content
The update will introduce new ways to approach Heists, playing the whole thing solo or with up to three crewmates.
In addition, there will be new vehicles and tactical weapons to acquire and even new social spaces with new guest DJs!
As if that wasn't enough, Rockstar has confirmed that the update will also include a 'very large, very versatile, and very heavily armed submarine HQ with plenty of other surprises'.
