    Soon your time spent with Halo: Combat Evolved PC as far back as 2003 will be worth a bonus visual unlock in In September 2010's Halo: Reach. How's that for rewarding dedication?
     
    Bungie staffer Roger "Sawnose" Wolfson recently re-confirmed on the Bungie message boards that owners of Halo: CE PC, who have authenticated their keys on Bungie's servers, will be able to use those keys to unlock a bit of "visual flair" for Halo: Reach. This unlock will not be from the game's Armory, though--it'll just be a little visual nod to some of the most hardcore Halo fans.
     

    No Caption Provided

    To get the bonus, you'll need to have your original CD key for Halo: CE PC on-hand. Said key will also need to have been authenticated--assuming you entered an online lobby at some point during your ownership of the game--before May 26, 2010.  
     
    Why then? Because Bungie has pulled data from that date and will be validating unlocks against it in a move to keep seedy people from using programs to generate a key. I should note that even if you bother with purchasing a new copy for this treat, Bungie will assume the fresh key has been key-genned. 

    No other details are being provided at this time, however, "Sawnose" says solid information, which will include how to use the key in-game, should be coming in the next few weeks as Reach's release date creeps ever closer.  
     
    Big ups to RageGummy for dropping the initial intel in our forums.

    Crud, I've got CE and have never actually played an online match.
     
    I can't blame Bungie for being careful, but this still sorta sucks.

    Hmm, I bought this and played it online a couple times (despite also owning the Xbox version).  I'll see if I can find it.

    I've totally played on line in Halo CE (PC). Your service record for the game is not logged on Bungie.net so I'm not exactly sure how to check if I'm eligible for this. I should be! I guess I'll find out when I enter my CDKey in Halo: Reach.

    You had to have done this before May 26,  as was stated in the article.  Authenticating at this point is useless.   This is only for people that have played that game online prior to that date.

    It kind of annoys me that this is for the PC version of Halo: CE. If you were a hardcore fan you'd have the Xbox version from a year (or was it two?) prior to the PC version. I guess it's impossible for them to validate Xbox versions of the game :(

    How come Halo/Halo 2 never were available via download, and if they were, how come I don't know about it? I've googled plenty of times but the only results are torrent sites.

    That's kinda stupid, giving PC players some bonuses for a 360 game.  PC gamers might not have a 360 after all. 
     
    Well maybe they give something for us halo 2 players since we cant play it on the xbox any more.

    This what I was thinking. Kind of weird considering the game is a 360 exclusive, unless I'm missing something here.
    But reading the comments, there seem to be plenty of people that are eligible for this, surprisingly.

    @EvolutionX0:  If you played Halo 2 on Xbox Live at any point, you'll get a piece of visual flair as well. However, there are a couple of catches.
     
    Catch 1: You need to have a Bungie.net account. You also need to have linked your gamertag to that account at some point and, afterward, registered an online match to the account.
     
    Catch 2: None of this applies to the PC version of Halo 2.
     
    More info here: 
    http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=45575323&postRepeater1-p=1
     
    @edgeofblade: It's just a small piece of content for the diehards. The flair isn't even as substantial as, say, a piece of armor. Really no reason to see it as a punishment, regardless of your stance on Halo PC.

    I loaned mine out and never had it returned. Which depending on what said "nod" is—could either be a huge bummer or a huge blah.
