Owners of the PC version of Halo: Combat Evolved have been deemed worthy by Bungie to unlock a visual bonus in the upcoming Halo: Reach. How will players receive the bonus? According to Bungie’s Roger Wolfson, as long as you’ve authenticated your Combat Evolved key on the Bungie server, you’ll be able to use that key in Reach to get what is being called “visual flair.”
As long as the key has been authenticated before May 26, 2010, it will be good to go. The bonus we know is nothing practical; it’s just a little something to pay homage to Halo fans. Maybe a special character skin?
As Reach’s September release draws near, we’ll have more details on what exactly the bonus is. Until then, let imaginations run wild.
