#HUNTtheSIGNAL

Microsoft continues to tease us with this new marketing campaign for Halo 5 called 'HUNTtheSIGNAL'.

 

Not to be confused with HUNTtheTRUTH, HUNTtheSIGNAL is something entirely new. "How new?" I hear you ask. "I dunno" I must say.

On a ordinary looking

there was a brief moment around the 0:09 mark where you could briefly see an ONI logo with a binary code below it. This code translated to this site huntthesignal.com which redirects you to either a screen telling you you're using the incorrect platform or a countdown timer if you're using the right platform, which is your mobile phone.

This countdown currently ends on the 6th of May 10:05 UTC.

 

Ofcourse people wouldn't let it at that, after some more digging around people found the following URL's:

https://www.huntthesignal.com/team

https://www.huntthesignal.com/Signup
https://www.huntthesignal.com/terms

Which as of now show blank pages but gave you a 503 error before. The last link even gave you some terms and conditions which can be read here.

 

From the looks of it we'll be hunting for information concerning a tournament of some sorts. All we know now is that you'll need you're mobile device or a Laptop/Desktop to complete the hunt and live in the US or UK.

Slight bummer for the rest of the world...

 

What are you're thoughts on this new hunt?

Let us know down below!

Thank you for reading! :D

As always, UK and USA being put before other areas. Pretty unfair to be honest, lets hope the rest of the world aren't missing out on too much.

 

Might as well point out the '117' on the image above, possibly a reference to MCPO John-117.

I always feel a little bit left out when they restrict stuff like this. But on the other hand I understand how setting up something like this worldwide would be a too big of an undertaking.

Also we can now just sit back and let others do the work for us ;)

And I'm just going to pull a 343i and cut out P34nut's timezone
