Still itching for the Heist mode coming to Grand Theft Auto 5? Well it may be here sooner than you think, with details from the new DLC leaked online courtesy of TheTechGame.
According to GTA 5 maestro, NillxModz, the DLC will drop on December 23rd and will be available for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. If the leak is indeed legit, then gamers can look forward to six heist missions, new vehicles, hairstyles, weapons and more, making it the biggest update to come to the game thus far.
You can check out the full list below:

4 new audio files, relating to the Heist missions. These are identified as an alarm bell, the sound of a vault opening, sirens and a background track.
NillxModz was banned in the past for leaking information that was confirmed shortly after, so there is a chance the above list is real. As ever we would still take it with a pinch of salt until Rockstar come out with details.
