So, evidently a year has passed since I was last doing this…
This Bungie day is much more dull for us gamers though; last year we got a free map – Cold Storage, a ViDOC, podcast and, in what we thought was going to be tradition… a Bungie Day theme and Gamer Picture pack. We’ve been given a theme and gamer picture pack every year since 2007.
Way to break that streak. 😦
So, I hear you ask — What are we getting this year?
- The “Bungie vs. The World” playlist. It’s a playlist consisting entirely of community made forge-maps on Foundry and [mainly] Sandbox which makes the Mythic Map pack a must.
The reason for the name of the playlist is that Bungie employees will be playing for the majority of the day tomorrow and if you beat one of their teams-of-four in a game you earn Recon armor.
- Screenshots of the 3 other Mythic maps including Heretic — confirmed as a near perfect port of Midship from Halo 2.
- A Bungie Day podcast.
The last two items on that list I didn’t think we’d be getting when I first wrote this, so it’s looking a bit better now. 🙂
I wasn’t expecting another free map, I knew that was one-off, but I was looking forward to a Bungie Day NXE theme — the previous one’s look rubbish with the new dash. Sadface.
Oh well, only 77 days till Halo 3: ODST is released.
* They haven’t said there won’t be a theme or gamer picture pack, its just that this time last year we knew there would be one.
