It’s official, Halo 3 contains more eggs than the Easter Bunny’s basket.
Now it seems even the date itself is bringing about subtle changes to multiplayer maps. In particular, Valhalla. Over the Halloween period some of you may have noticed the odd chalk tombstone picture appear at various points on the map.
Well, it seems these pictures are date-specific easter eggs (much like the sign on the beach in Halo 2’s Zanzibar), only showing themselves on particular holidays. A quick fiddle with your Xbox 360’s date and time settings though and you can cheat the system into letting you see them as and when you wish.
Here’s what’s been noticed so far:
New Year’s Day – Jan 1st
Earth Day – April 22nd
Cinco de Mayo – May 5th
Independence Day – July 4th
Bungie Day – July 7th
Veteran’s Day – Nov 11th
Christmas Day – Dec 25th
Thanks to GruntsRUs for putting in much of the hard work snapping shots and changing dates. Remember, this isn’t a definitive list – there may be more.
Has anyone seen anything odd on any of the other maps?
