What was once a mind boggling alien easter-egg in GTA 5, is now an official mission found in the files of the Gunrunning update by The Chiliad Mystery Guru group.

Since Grand Theft Auto V‘s launch, there has been speculation concerning Mount Chiliad and its connection to aliens. With tons of alien symbols and UFO sightings, countless theorists dubbed it the Chiliad Mystery.

The Chiliad Mystery Guru group activated the quest by manipulating the files which started a Steal Supplies mission in their bunker. Upon arriving to the way-point, there’s a crashed UFO surrounded by dead soldiers and an alien egg. Once the egg is picked up, aliens teleport in and attack the player.

It’s unclear if this is the end of the Chiliad Mystery or if there’s more to come. It also begs the question of when this will be released to the public. Check out the mission below:

In other GTA 5 news, Rockstar launched an Independence Day update which includes a new adversary mode, Dawn Raid.  A team of six parachute in to find a hidden package and deliver it before the opposing team does. This mode will net you double cash and RP until July 10.

The update also includes a new super car, Dewbauchee Vagner, and new weapons including Mk II versions of the Pistol, Carbine Rifle, Heavy Sniper, Combat MG and SMG. Logging in before July 10 will give you two free Independence Day shirts and all watercraft will be on sale.
