343 Pays Tribute to a Halo Fan's Family
« on: February 27, 2016, 05:03:04 PM »




Included in the February update is a special free REQ pack called “Spartans Never Walk Alone.” This pack isn’t a promotional giveaway or any incentive to bring you back, it’s a heart-felt gesture to a fan that’s going through a horrible situation right now. I think it’s important everyone know the story of this REQ pack instead of thinking it’s just a random free item. Here’s what 343I had to say.

Quote
Last month we learned about a community member’s tragic loss. Adam (aka thecrzedspartan) and his wife Rebecca lost their daughters Trinity and Lena when their lives were claimed by an electrical fire in their family home. As a father, I can only imagine the heartache and pain caused by this loss. In the days following the tragedy, it was inspiring to see the Halo community come together to support Adam and Rebecca in a variety of ways.

In honor of Adam’s family and his daughters, Trinity and Lena, we’ve created the Spartans Never Walk Alone pack. This pack contains the True Light emblem, which is named after the first initial of each of his daughters’ names, and is the first animated emblem to come to Halo 5. All players will receive this pack as part of this month’s free update.

As well we have included a special feature in our new Arena map, Torque. As players look up and scan the stars above, the names Trinity and Lena will be visible in the night sky. These are but small gestures meant to honor Adam’s daughters, ensuring that their memories are always close at hand within the universe he loves.


This isn’t the first time the Halo series has honored someone in the community. When a well known member of Bungie.net suddenly passed away he was forever remembered by having his name listed as a marine in Halo 3. For Adam’s situation, the Halo community came together and donated nearly $30,000 in a month through their GoFundMe page. All of this is an amazing show of support for a tragic situation.

R.I.P to those little girls (Trinity and Lena), my condolences to the family.

My heart goes out to the parents.
Such a tragic loss, yet inspiring that a community can still come together in amazing ways.
