Cayo Perico Heist

The predicted map expansion has come, in a way. The map is unavailable in Free Mode.

The latest heist will see you infiltrate the remote island compound of a notorious drug dealer!

"Evade or neutralize the heavily armed security forces stationed there, and escape with valuable evidence along with as much art, gold and drug money as you can carry."
