GTA Online’s surprise new Heist has gone live today.

The Doomsday Heist is the first to be added to the game since the original batch of five heists arrived back in 2015.

Doomsday Heist tasks players with stopping the apocalypse from enemies unknown and promises to send players inside Mount Chiliad, home of many a conspiracy theory.

The update also features new vehicles including the Avenger mobile operations command, new military vehicles like the Barrage armoured 4×4 and Akula chopper, new versions of the pump action shotgun, bullpup and marksman rifle, and the usual round of clothing and tattoos.

We’re in the process of collecting all the new cars, gear, prices, hardware and rewards here. Oh, and look at that – there’s a Red Dead Redemption 2 Easter egg included.

Special additions to the Doomsday Heist including the Impote Deluxo flying car and Thruster jetpacks, a new tank that can be upgraded with a railgun, and the Volvatol bomber.

It also inlcudes a new Obrital Strike for taking out other players, which will set you back $500,000 – $750,000.

The Doomsday Heist DLC is free and available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
