Halo: Combat evolved gets some Halo: Reach love

Recommended Videos

Halo: Combat Evolved PC gamers, your time is now. You went with the PC version over the console version and now it’s going to pay off when you pick up Halo: Reach. Those with functional keys for the original Halo on PC will be able to claim “a small visual thing in-game.” Ooooooo, shiny.

Don’t think you can get away with any tricks like running out and picking up the original game from the shelves because Bungie is on top of that sh*t.

“For starters, I pulled a list of keys that had actually been used as of a month or two ago, and we’ll probably validate against that list,” Bungie developer Roger Wolfson said on the Bungie forums. “So people won’t be able to just get the keygen now and claim the… reward. (i.e., people who didn’t even bother to pirate the game) It also means that buying one of the few remaining copies at retail won’t help you anymore.”

So if you have been rolling old school with Halo on the PC you’re about to be able to represent. Time to head over to your massive shelf of game boxes and pull out Halo. More info on how to use the key is coming in the build up to Halo: Reach‘s launch.
