Bungie Day Details and the Halo 3 Lucky Loonie
Bungie has always had a thing for the number "7," and July 7th is Bungie Day! This Monday, July 7th, we'll not only get the usual complimentary Gamer Pics and Theme, but Bungie and Microsoft Game Studios will also be releasing a brand new Halo 3 Multiplayer Map for free entitled Cold Storage.
Microsoft Game Studios is also reducing the price of the Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack to 600 Microsoft Points, and for 2 days only, there will be a seven player free-for-all playlist added to Halo 3's matchmaking.
Bungie is also hoping to reach their goal of having seven billion Campaign kills before July 7th, so if you'd like to pitch in, log onto Xbox LIVE and play some Campaign!
Full details and a really crappy ViDoc showing off Cold Storage can be viewed in Bungie's Weekly Update here, and the ViDoc is also available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
In addition, one thing that's old news but I just found out about from Jade's update on Canada Day is that the Halo 3 Multiplayer Map Snowbound has an Easter egg of a lucky loonie! Details here (it's in the Active Camouflage cave).
