New Trailer Solves GTA 5's Greatest Mystery

New Trailer Solves GTA 5's Greatest Mystery
From IGN - December 7, 2017

Today Rockstar released a trailer for another update to GTA Online. The Doomsday Heist may be the wildest update to GTA yet, and it not only adds a slew of new free content for players to dive into, but also answers some of our biggest questions about Grand Theft Auto 5.

Since its release in 2013, fans have wondered what secrets lie within the stones of Mt. Chilliad in the norther section of San Andreas. Thanks to the in-game heiroglyph hidden near the mountain's peak, many players surmised that there was a secret alien conspiracy surrounding the mountain - and they were not that far off.

It's a consipiracy, for sure, but not of the extraterrestrial variety (though there's plenty of evidence of their existence in the GTA universe). In the trailer, we see what appears to be a large nuclear missile silo, assumedly contained within the belly of the mountain.

The fact that there are anti-aircraft rocket launchers dotting the rocky peak is also a dead giveaway that something more sinister resides within.

Longtime fans also have their prayers answered in the form of personalized rocket-fueled propulsion. Not having appeared since GTA: San Andreas, players will now be able to take control of their very own jetpack, seen at the end of the trailer. Whether or not we will be able to purchase or obtain them for use outside the heist is unknown, but we are hoping we can.

We actually get a good bit of story information from this trailer: your crew is recruited by Avon Hertz, a tech mogul with what appears to be limitless resources - at the very least, enough to build a Jarvis-like AI named Clifford and this sweet briefing room - to help save San Andreas from what appears to be total destruction.
