Earlier than we get to digging too deep right here, think about this your spoiler warning. If you wish to uncover all the secrets and techniques of an upcoming mission in GTAV by yourself, then tread rigorously.
The above tweet comes from a bunch of parents who’ve made a pastime out of diving into the code of Rockstar video games. When The Doomsday Heist was launched earlier this week in Grand Theft Auto V, the crew bought to mining the info for any scrap of additional content material that will not have been found in-game but.
In response to their findings, a “treasure hunt” will ultimately be unlocked in GTA On-line, main gamers to, presumably, uncover a hidden trunk. It is not unusual for additional code/content material to get rolled into one thing completely unrelated, so we do not anticipate this treasure hunt has something to do with The Doomsday Heist instantly. As a substitute, it is extra seemingly the mission will pop up each time Rockstar decides to activate it, or as a part of a promotional push for Red Dead Redemption 2.
The dataminers have been capable of give you fairly just a few additional particulars, particularly what you may discover within the chest. Apparently, it is going to unlock an in-game double-action revolver, that are the six-shooters you sometimes see in westerns or, say, Purple Lifeless Redemption. It’s going to additionally unlock one thing in Purple Lifeless Redemption 2 as soon as it lastly releases.
That tweet was adopted by one other with some additional data which, as famous by Kotaku, ties again in to one thing of an in-game thriller that is been round since GTAV launched.
When of us first stumbled upon the unmarked grave in GTAV, hypothesis began stirring that it could both ultimately tie into an in-game mission or that it was maybe an Easter egg referencing a deceased character within the unique Purple Lifeless Redemption. The latter does not actually match up, as the situation is method off for the place that grave would have been situated.
The previous, nonetheless, appears to be proper on the cash. These code spelunkers stored on digging, following clues till they have been in a position to determine the place the chain of missions will ultimately lead. It seems the treasure hunt will draw to an in depth on the unmarked grave, the place gamers will uncover the chest and the in-game loot.
This makes lots of sense when you’ve seen The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, a spaghetti western Purple Lifeless Redemption owes so much to. The treasure in that movie might be discovered at an unmarked grave, similar to the one hanging out on a hill in GTAV.
