To mark the arrival of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary at stores on November 15 -also the tenth anniversary of the Xbox brand- Microsoft is inviting fans of the series to contribute to a commemoration of the tenth anniversary. They will be doing so by creating a living monument to the series’ long time lead, Master Chief. Contributing to the monument will be a simple thing, either submitting a photo from your Facebook or simply leaving a comment about your favorite Halo memory.

By visiting this website today, fans will be given the opportunity to upload pictures of their favorite Halo moments and watch as they seamlessly integrate with the images uploaded by other fans around the world and create an interactive 3D mosaic image of Master Chief. Users can explore the other uploads and comments on the mosaic, rate their favorite submissions and share them on Facebook or Twitter.

In addition, fans who add their photos to the interactive memorial can see their contributions immortalized in a personalized, live-action “Halo Tribute” video that honors the dedication and support of the Halo community over the franchise’s ten year history. Created in celebration of the ten year anniversary of one of the most popular franchises in recent gaming history, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is a remastered, high definition version of the original Halo:Combat Evolved campaign, along with a handful of the multiplayer levels as well. With the addition of many new features from the original Xbox and later PC release, including Cooperative play via Xbox Live, six re-imagined multiplayer maps and one new Firefight map, a classic graphics mode, Kinect and Stereoscopic 3D support, along with new challenges and story to uncover, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary looks to be a big hit with the Spartans.
