The most obvious and exciting part of the heists update is of course the heists. There are a total of five different heists in online, although the first one is a basic tutorial heist, explaining the basics for a team of two players.
The next four heists are full scale missions that can be completed with you and three of your friends. There are different difficulty modes to make the heists more challenging, and various monetary rewards in the millions for completing all of the heists with the same team members.
It's not just the heists in the new update though. Whilst Rockstar have not yet released any patch notes for it, the new update has a few other small things worth mentioning. Firstly, players can now choose to paint all of the rims in the chrome color, instead of using the single chrome plated rim.
There is also a new motion blur setting that allows you to increase the blurring vision you'll see when moving your view. Personally I never saw the appeal of motion blur, but it is something many players have asked for since the launch of GTA V. Hopefully Rockstar will release a full patch notes post so that we can see exactly what changes have been made to the game.
