We’re entering the holiday season, and Rockstar has just given us the greatest gift of all: a new heist coming to GTA Online next week. The mission, The Doomsday Heist, will be available to play starting on Dec. 12.

According to the trailer above, The Doomsday Heist will see your squad teaming up with the military to fight off an incoming threat from an unknown country. That sounds like an incredibly dangerous mission, but it looks like you’ll come prepared with some massive weapons and high-tech gadgets. The trailer shows a massive missile truck quickly eliminating a squad of helicopters, Back To The Future-style flying cars, Iron Man-esque jetpack suits and more.

Wait… Did I just say jetpack? Yes! It looks like the long-rumored Mount Chiliad mystery may finally pay off. The short clip of the jetpacks in action can be seen in the trailer at around the 52-second mark. According to the trailer’s YouTube description, players will explore the inside of Mount Chiliad, as well as the bottom of the ocean and everywhere in between.

The Doomsday Heist is the first new heist Rockstar has added to GTA Online since it first launched heists back in March 2015. That means players have been running through those same missions for almost three years. A new heist is a very welcome addition to the game, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a big resurgence in players over the next few weeks as a result.

While Rockstar hasn’t confirmed anything yet, the developer will likely release some cosmetic items with the heist, and possibly a new vehicle or two. If previous heists have been any indication, vehicles exclusive to the new heist will eventually become available for purchase. If there’s something you’re really excited for, it might be smart to hold back on spending your new-found cash to see if Rockstar announces any future plans.

So what do you think? Are you excited to play the new Doomsday Heist in GTA Online? Do you hope more heists are coming in the future? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
