|The subject of this article is Bungie Lore; one of the many myths, legends, and easter eggs that have been created by Bungie.|
Bungie Day is July 7th, or 7/7, presumably because of Bungie's fondness of the number seven. Bungie usually prepares special content that is only available for download on Bungie day. The first official Bungie day was 7/7/07.
Several gamepics and themes for Xbox Live members were released which were ONLY availible on Bungie Day 2008. Bungie also gave a new downloadable map "Cold Storage" to Halo 3 owners . This was a remake of the original Halo CE classic "Chill out". Bungie brought back the return of the Bungie Podcast .
Bungie also released a new ViDoc for user's to enjoy on that day: And on the seventh day...
Matchmaking Playlist: Bungie Vs The World - The Playlist, Bungie vs World consisted of Bungie Employees rotating in a team of four playing Matchmaking against the community. Those players who were lucky enough to match with, and then beat the Bungie team were awarded Recon.
Bungie also released an exclusive podcast regarding the new additions to Bungie Pro and giving away new music for the upcoming release of Halo 3: ODST.
All players were awarded the Bungie chest armor piece in Halo 3. It caused all helmet's to catch on fire, but only on Bungie Day. A lucky few got to keep the chestpiece, presumably those who won a match against some of the Bungie employees who played that day.
The map Hemorrhage (a remake that is a mix of Blood Gulch and Coagulation) was announced in a Red vs. Blue that was done between Bungie and Rooster Teeth. The video showcased the new Falcon, Rocket Hog, an assassination, new armor, and Hologram . Fans were teased with an ending clip of Sarge getting shot at by a tank very far outside Hemorrhage, and left with the message, "Go outside the canyon Comic Con 2010."
This was HUGE as it's Bungie's 20th anniversary.Bungie brought back the return of Bungie vs The World playlist from 2009. This time, steak is the reward, literally. A live stream was kept on all day during the Bungie Marathon Madness, if any team "Steaked" Bungie in
Matchmaking, they were rewarded with real steak. Yep, Bungie actually mailed steak to the gamers that managed to beat them by 20 kills or more.
Bungie put together numerous items for sale to raise money for a charity awareness auction known as "Child's Play" . Items such as posters, T Shirts, artwork and "Swag Bags" were sold online to customers. Swag Bags contained various Bungie items from their old office. There were only about 700 Swag Bags availible, so the supplies ran out quickly. Inside 7 of those Swag Bags were exclusive tickets/invitations to a top secret event that would be held on Bungie Day 2012.
Bungie also released their Bungie Mobile App for iPhone . This was an exclusive way for gamers to unlock "Blue Flames" and the "Star Nameplate" for Halo Reach in Bungie's final "Hoo-rah" of Halo. Gamers could also grant "Star Nameplates" up to 6 other friends if they desired. Bungie also released a teser trailer about unlocking the "Blue Flames" on Bungie day via Rooster Teeth.
Bungie also launched their first official page regarding Bungie Aerospace .
