We've been slacking on our Halo 3 Iris ARG
coverage as of late, because things are moving along at a steady and somewhat uneventful pace. But there is some excitement in Iris ARG-land geared towards those mysterious five servers (chapters) that are to be unlocked during the ARG. And since we last talked Iris, the third server was unlocked using status information from the free server monitor application and playing a sound clip through a microphone. Inside the third server was the typical sound wavs, pictures and other mysterious loot that'll hopefully help our fellow Iris followers unlock this mystery. Although, we expect nothing will become black and white until the fifth server goes live in roughly a month. Anyway, that's where things sit right now and as always we advise heading to the Iris Wiki to get learned or hop onto the Unfiction forums to participate in the fun.
And on another exciting side note, I mentioned a few days back that I was lucky enough to help unlock the second server and when that happens the first 100 unlockers (I was number 99!) receive a reward for helping. And lo and behold, the other day I received my reward! In the gallery
below, we've posted pictures of the ARG swag we received for aiding in the ARG including a uber limited (and way too big) Halo 3
Iris XL tshirt, a code for a glyph gamer picture and a copy of Halo
novel "Ghosts of Onyx" signed by Eric Nylund himself. It's one sweet ARG swag stash.
