GTA V Online Heists ARE LIVE!

Well, if you weren't around last night when it leaked you probably know that today (officially) GTA V Heists are live! According to the release notes Heists will add about 15-20hrs+ of new content to the game (for free, assuming you already purchased the game). It'll also give you the opportunity to head back into the online space of GTA (if you ever left) and play out missions with your friends/crew online.

It looks like the update is quite sizable, around 4.8Gigs on Xbox One. So before you head off to work this morning, consider starting the update so you can play immediately upon your return!

For those interested, Shogun Gamer has had a crew live since day one and we'll be looking to bolster our numbers as Heists gear up. If you want to join us in some live gaming, be sure to add yourself to the SGLC (Shogun Gamer Live Crew) on the Rockstar Crew's site:
