GTA V Players Activate Secret Alien Mission via Game Files as Single-Player DLC Reports Resurface

July 2, 2017Written by Zarmena Khan

Datamining group Chiliad Mystery Guru Team has managed to uncover and activate a secret alien mission in Grand Theft Auto Online through the game’s files. From what has been unearthed so far (video above), it seems to be a supply run mission involving alien eggs found near a crashed UFO.

Triggering it is no easy task. According to a detailed Reddit post by the group, “much hard work” and sleepless nights went into tinkering with the game’s codes to get the mission to run and no one knows how to get it working normally.

While Rockstar has made no comment and we’re not sure if this is how the final mission would have come out, it settles all those reports of the developer toying around with the concept. What’s particularly interesting, however, is that this discovery has raked up years worth of discussions surrounding the game’s single-player DLC, which reports say was shelved back in 2014. Apparently, an alien mission of some sort was included in the canned single-player content.

“Given that online is set before the events of single player, I think we can safely assume that this (if anything) is the beginning of what may be added to single player!” wrote Reddit user SSj5_Tadden, who is part of the datamining group. Here’s one report that goes into detail about the rumored DLC but it’s unverified so take it with a grain of salt.

It’s unlike Rockstar to make a statement on speculations but this is an intriguing development, nonetheless.
