Halo 3 easter egg discovered after 7 years
There has long been talk on the Halo and Bungie forums of a fabled undiscovered Easter egg in Halo 3. It was talked about as the only remaining secret fans had yet to uncover and it has finally been found.
Perhaps rather aptly, not long at Bungie day on 7/7 and almost 7 years after the release of the game itself, the final Easter egg can now be shown thanks to Beyond Entertainment.
Teases from Bungie in its regular mail bag conversations with fans got people hunting. Things such as:
There is one Easter egg in Halo 3 that I don’t think anyone has found – I stumbled across it in code a while back. It only happens on a specific day…so good luck.
Showing my wife the Easter egg I put in the halo 3 loading screen for her – the one that nobody has found yet.
So what is it? A loading screen message that only appears when your Xbox 360 thinks its 25 December, holding in both thumbsticks, that reads “Happy Birthday Lauren!” You can watch it for yourself above. And congrats to Team Beyond on the find.
