A UFO has recently been found in GTA Online. But that only appears in a certain place and at certain times. We summarize what it is all about and where you can find it.
What kind of event is that? This is the so-called sightseeing event, at which a UFO appears every day from October 15th to October 21st.
The first UFO has already been sighted and only appears at a certain point at certain times of the day. Nobody currently knows exactly what this event will bring with it and of course that leaves the players puzzled.
We’ll tell you when and where you can find the UFO and what the players suspect behind the event.
Location of the UFO in GTA Online
This is where you will find the UFO: The UFO spawns in the north of the GTA Online map, on a headland of Paleto Bay.
It also remains to be seen whether the UFO will change its location in the next few days. So far it has always shown itself in the same place for all players.
But don’t fly too close to the UFO. As soon as you fly too close to the object with an airplane, you crash. Apparently the UFO is protected by a kind of force field. You can only find it between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. in-game time. The UFO can therefore only be found in the dark.
Preparing for Halloween? What’s it all about? Numerous players are pondering this right now. So far there is still no precise indication of what this is all about.
With the UFO event, it could just be a hint about GTA: San Andreas. Finally, Rockstar has already announced some special events in honor of the release of the remakes of GTA: San Andreas, Vice City and GTA III.
This is also one of the first clues given by gamers (via reddit). Other players suspect that the event is a kind of preparation for the announced Halloween event.
What is known about the Halloween event so far? Basically nothing at all. Traditionally there are mostly discounts and bonuses for the players on Halloween. Sometimes there are also special, cool vehicles.
Rockstar may be planning a bigger number this year, at least the UFO event could indicate that. Ultimately, there is nothing left but to wait and see what happens in the coming week.
What do you think of the event? Do you believe the theory that it’s preparing for Halloween?
