Ever since our first look at Grand Theft Auto Online, Rockstar has been teasing the ability to perform heists with friends. Seemingly each time it's even mentioned the can is kicked further down the road with little information to show. Today, we finally have some tangible evidence Duke Nukem Forever online heists does in-fact exist in the form of a minute long trailer and a preview from IGN. The trailer can be view above and as always we've summed up the important bits from the preview below:

  • "Early 2015" release date
  • Rebuilt from ground up several times
  • Four players at rank 12 or above
  • Spent time making sure it's interesting for all positions in the team
  • One player will act as leader
  • Planning a heist requires owning a high-end apartment
  • Leader will be responsible for funding any prep work
  • Crew members (except leader) get a payout for each prep mission
  • Five heists strands with 20 total missions
  • Bonus reward for playing all five in order with same set of players
  • Bonus reward for playing all five in first-person mode
  • "Elite Challenges" for meeting certain criteria such as accuracy

Rockstar had previously stated that heists would be the next update after the NewGen versions launched, but that doesn't look to be the case with the holiday's update fast approaching. However, seeing as Rockstar finally seems to be happy with the state heists is in, we'd expect the early 2015 release date to really be early 2015 - perhaps even near or soon after the PC version?

Last month Rockstar released on update on Steam for Grand Theft Auto San Andreas that added XInput controller support while removing several songs and breaking saved games for German players. It also continued the trend excluding version 1.01 fixes such as 1080p support. A week later we reported that another update for the game was being staged. Four weeks later, the update has finally gone live. In line with the last update, there is no official version number so to avoid confusion the community is calling it "NewSteam r2". Unlike the last update, however, Rockstar has released an official changelog for this update:

  • Added 1080p Resolution

Sadly, there's no sign of Rockstar restoring songs previous owners should rightfully have access to. Just like with the last update, an unofficial community downgrader has been created to rectify this issue. This new downgrader will take your legally purchased NewSteam r2 (12/9) to before the 11/7 patch. It relies on binary differences so no game files are being distributed. As such, this will only work correctly with the 12/9/14 update. Once downgraded, we recommend making a copy of your San Andreas folder and storing it somewhere outside of your Steam folder. You should also then be able to use this downgrader to version 1.0 to gain maximum modding compatibility. There is also a downgrader to take you directly from NewSteam r2 to 1.0 that should be released later today. We'll update this article when that happens.

NewSteam r2 -> pre-11/7 Downgrader: Mirror 1 | Mirror 2 | Mirror 3

EDIT: A downgrader for NewSteam r2 to the original 1.0 version of San Andreas has been released.
