If you are a gamer, you will be as surprised as me to hear that a new Easter egg has been discovered in Halo 3. The game has been on the market for seven years now, and numerous Easter eggs have already been discovered, but this is the first time this one has been documented. One of the things that made this one so difficult to find is that it only works on one day per year.
The Easter egg is a birthday greeting to the wife of one of the developers of the game. The greeting reads “Happy Birthday Lauren!” It is only accessible on December 25, presumably Lauren’s birthday.
You can access the Easter egg on that day by pressing both thumb sticks on the controller. The screen will zoom out to a larger view of the Halo ring and the message appears, subtly hidden the space dust. Check out the video to see the Easter egg in action – you’ll need to look pretty carefully to see it.
