If you have friends in GTA Online, you can gather a group of like-minded people, or start a search and just hope for a good team. Sometimes the latter is frustrating, so players prefer to go through the missions alone.
True, this did not apply to robberies, in which the presence of four players in the team was a prerequisite. However, in a recent heist called “Cayo Perico”, the developers added the ability to complete tasks alone.
Rockstar’s director of design, Tarek Hamad, in an interview with GQ, explained why the studio took this step and said that such elements for singles will not go anywhere in the future.
We have been thinking about this for a long time, and the players also actively demanded it. We will focus on this in the future as well. We respect players who want more co-op, but at the same time, we need to provide options for solo play.
Therefore, this approach will satisfy everyone. If you go to the robbery yourself, you get the whole jackpot. In addition, it becomes easier to plan a mission and complete it in stealth mode. In the multiplayer version, you can split up and perform different tasks.
The Cayo Perico Heist was released in GTA Online on December 15th. The mission will require a submarine, which will cost GTA $ 2.2 million. Players will have to steal as many valuable things as possible from the private island of drug lord El Rubio.
GTA Online is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. On newer consoles, the action is backward compatible.
