The mystery of the Mt. Chiliad mural has been blown wide open, thanks to an intrepid team of script-divers.
The Chiliad Mystery has been unraveling for years, but the recent Gunrunning update brought some new, hidden script to Grand Theft Auto Online. The Team Guru, a group dedicated to breaking the code of the Mt. Chiliad mural and finding aliens in Grand Theft Auto Online, recently uncovered a suspicious asset from the Gunrunning script—an alien egg.
After digging further into the update’s script, it looks like Team Guru has solved the mystery of the egg, and like many suspected, it’s related to a UFO crash. By manipulating the script, Team Guru triggered a supply run mission that brings you face-to-face with the aliens, and like every other Grand Theft Auto Online mission, it’s entirely underwhelming.
The mission takes the player to the crashed UFO, where the player will pick up the egg. As soon as he does that, maybe half a dozen aliens—whose models look exactly the same as the aliens for the hallucinatory episodes in certain drug-induced Grand Theft Auto V‘s single-player side-missions—appear, only to be gunned down moments later. And that’s it.
We can’t help but feel underwhelmed that all the build up surrounding the alien egg led to another boring supply-run mission. Team Guru has speculated on the Reddit post announcing the discovery that more alien-related content will be added to the single-player, but that seems unlikely at this point, considering the game has been out since September 2013 without any updates on the once-planned story DLC.
It’s possible that the alien egg mission will be triggered sometime during Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Independence Week event, but in the meantime make sure you pick up those star-spangled assault rifles and celebrate your freedom exactly how America’s founding fathers would have wanted: by virtually murdering your friends in a digital pastiche of Los Angeles.
Grand Theft Auto V is available now for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
