Fans Uncover Hidden Alien Mission In Grand Theft Auto V's Game Files

From a frozen extraterrestrial players could discover in the game's opening mission to their appearance in a hallucination mission, Aliens have been a hidden, if not always subtle, part of Grand Theft Auto V. Now, nearly four years after the game's initial release, players have discovered a much more explicit appearance from creatures outside of Earth in the game.

Datamining outfit The Chiliad Mystery Guru Team has found a hidden supply run mission in the game's online mode. This random mission doesn't seem to easily appear by normal means (it either spawns randomly at incredibly rare intervals or requires a set of conditions be met before it can activate), but the Guru Team tinkered with a few lines of code and were able to force the mission to occur. The mission is a routine supply run, wherein the player must deliver an object from one place to another, though in this case it's notable since the object you're delivering is Alien eggs. The eggs can be found near a not-at-all conspicuous crashed UFO, perhaps the most overt reference the game has had to aliens actually existing in GTAV we've had yet. You can watch the mission in action below.
