#EvilAwakens

Screen Shot 2012-10-22 at 9.30.05 AM

Three mystery videos have been uploaded by various Halo Youtubers, all relating back to the message of “An Ancient Evil Awakens”.

Can anyone make sense out of these?

Butterfly

Glacier

Gallagher

The only thing different about the Gallagher video is that it is 1:17 seconds long.

      Ducain!!! Nice to see you on here.

      • Max117

        Yay Ducain !!

    • BadJoker

      ducain please tell me its not trolling , you troll us with more youtubers?

    • Raxs

      Lol :D Hey ducain. Don’t suppose you are able to shine some light on this harsh halo mystery?

      • Michael Walker

        If you watched Ducain’s live stream of minecraft that he aired yesterday around 12 central time, people were asking questions via youtube and he would not say very much of anything about the videos or what relates to them. All I know is there are forums up that talk about nothing but what the videos mean.

    • Gwizard101

      wow Ducain whats up?

      • Archangel

        i’m talking to a celebrity wooooo

        • Max117

          And this celebrity isn’t answering to all of the comments. ;P

    • Sam Halo

      Oh you and your secret MS associations… :D

    • Black Falcon

      Hey Ducain its really cool to see you on here!

    • BCW01

      Love how ducain just puts a smiley and everyone gos crazy. you may not be as known as some but you have one of the most loyal fan bases around. anyways i think your fans deserve an explination. at the very least a hint. so give the people what they want and have long awaited… an answer. actually just a nudge inthe right direction should be enough. right now we are just stumbing in the dark. I mean we even considered source codes…

    • Black Falcon

      Hey ducain are you on this aswell? :P

      • Archangel

        yeah he is but he’s not talking

    • Danger Close Gamers

      Love ur vids ducain23

  • http://www.facebook.com/thom.withaar Thom Withaar

    The numbers on the end of each video are 11, 05, 05… whatever that means.

    • http://www.facebook.com/thom.withaar Thom Withaar

      And the Gallagher one was a joke, I think. So that leaves us 11 and 05.

  • emerson

    I think it has something to do with 05…11…117? or something like that

    • Fenirad

      Yeah I agree.

  • SurprizeForYou

    Hmm… Looking forward to seeing if there are more numbers, if the times mean anything, why the Gallagher video is the only one with Halo music, etc. Hope this leads into a viral campaign, like Ilovebees.

  • Soul

    I noticed an 11 at the end of Butterfly, and an 05 at the end of both glacier and Gallagher. I think the Gallagher is insignificant, however the 11 and 05 could have something to do with the 11/06 release… Maybe their going to reveal all information or something? Either that or maybe it has something to do with the time 11:05. No Idea what could be happening at 11:05 , but it’s the best guess I’ve got.

    • Echo

      Maybe the date 11/05? Bonfire night. Or the year 1105.

      • asdf

        No dice. Glacier was released the day before Butterfly, so the date would be 05/11.

      • N2xN

        my birthday :D woop woop

    • http://www.facebook.com/the.retarded.thumb.inator Dom Naanbread Harris

      Gallagher is a hoax, there is no Didact symbol in it :P

      there are also the letters C and K, and the numbers 3 and 8 to include in the puzzle D:

      • Echo

        I’m just in the thinking that the glyphs from halo anniversary may have some relevance. I mean, I say the glyph for C in a trailer, and we have a full alphabet and numbers 1-9 in forerunner, and somewhere to input forerunner codes on waypoint as we saw in the terminals. I think I may be shooting blind but there has to be something there.

      • EpsilonWolf

        Gallagher isn’t a hoax (Google “Glacier Gallagher”!)

    • http://www.facebook.com/beau.schreckengast Beau Schreckengast

      To me, it seems to be saying that 11/5 is the last day before “An Ancient Evil Awakens”. Seeing as how 11/6 is the release date for the game.

      • Black Falcon

        Thats logical

  • BadJoker

    i only see random videos lol

  • BadJoker

    omg maybe pre release ?!
    1 day earlier ?!?!
    51112 !
    or 11512 however you type that !
    maybe thats the point?

    • http://www.facebook.com/seth.heisey.9 Seth Heisey

      Games don’t ship mondays. They usually are all shipped in on Tuesdays or Thursdays. So i think that’s highly unlikely but still a good guess.

      • migz

        Not true, stores have the games a few days in advance

        • http://www.facebook.com/seth.heisey.9 Seth Heisey

          Yeah after I wrote that it sounded a little off somewhere. Thanks for the correction.

  • silentone4748

    The butterfly and glacier one both have that weird symbol in them with the circle thing.

    • EpsilonWolf

      It’s the didact symbol.

  • jack

    i like how the second one is 1:17 minutes

    • Roy

      it’s quite a coincidence

      • Archangel

        or is it?

  • http://www.facebook.com/ST0RMKING Storm King

    Hey guys take a look at this http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=5343517

    I googled “#EVILAWAKENS” and some intreasting stuff came up thats not posted on this site yet.

    • Archangel

      damn who else do you think is in on this ?

  • adas

    maybe you need to #evilawakens with all three numbers and something happens or take you some where.

  • PhoenixPrime

    Go to Xbox Facebook page, their youtube page and readyuplive youtube page are all changed with a scrambled version of this symbol.

    • Archangel

      interesting veeeeery interesting

  • Roy

    EvilAwakens, they’re probably talking about the Didact, maybe there is a connection somewhere between the Didact and 11-05-05

    • http://www.facebook.com/adam.kilman Adam Kilman

      Dude, why doesn’t anyone know that the circular symbol is the Forerunner glyph for the Didact? That’s the connection.

      • Roy

        Yeah I already knew that, but that’s no excuse for these numbers

  • Echo

    Perhaps we can use this? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/November_5#Events. I think I saw a few possibles such as the events in the 7 years war and a great flood. Arrest of guy fawkes and bonfire night also spring to mind.

    • EpsilonWolf

      Maybe the arrest of Guy Fawkes has to do with this? I don’t know, just the mention of the House of Lords makes me think that it may have something to do with Halo 4.

      • Echo

        I see what you mean, I’m just looking for anything significant that ties in with the numbers, and with enough historical significance to be relevant with anything. I’m probably miles off, but I suppose every little helps, right?

        • Archangel

          what if its a date in halo lore? it could be possible just saying

  • Roy

    ‘The numbers Mason, what do they mean?’ xD
    Sorry people, really bad post but I just came up with it.

    • Raxs

      ooooo – -. Black ops reference on a Halo site. Did it just get a tad awkward in here :L

      • http://twitter.com/FreeJayGForD Ryan FreeJay GForD

        indeed it did.. indeed it did..

        • Archangel

          shiz just got real

  • mistah ARK

    Hmm…the last thing he smashed was a fish…fish…cod…CoD…Call of Duty. Maybe some subliminal messages there.

  • Raxs

    Okay guys, The Symbols/Videos lead us to the numbers 11 and 05 If we proposed this was date then this would be the day before halo 4s release. I Don’t suppose something significant happens on this date?

    • http://www.facebook.com/thom.withaar Thom Withaar

      Well, even if that was the case, something way more significant would still be happining the day after, no matter what this means. (;

    • http://twitter.com/FreeJayGForD Ryan FreeJay GForD

      i must ask where you found these numbers lol ?

      • http://twitter.com/FreeJayGForD Ryan FreeJay GForD

        is that where you see the symbol in the video cause that could easily be misread and points to the date of Halo 4 saying you know.. evil awakens when ppl can play the game.. it only makes sense considering its off by 1 number.

        • http://twitter.com/FreeJayGForD Ryan FreeJay GForD

          i also noticed that the 3rd video is 1:17 long.. “117” John aka Master Chief. Maybe he stops the UNSC from doing something evil.

      • EpsilonWolf

        Did you watch the whole video? When it shows the #EvilAwakens text it starts flickering and you can see the numbers.

      • Raxs

        When it says “#evilawakens” at the end the sentence flickers in a number ;)

        • http://twitter.com/FreeJayGForD Ryan FreeJay GForD

          ohhhhh okaaaaay! lol sorry bout that :P didnt catch it the first time

          • Raxs

            No Problem man (:

  • http://twitter.com/FreeJayGForD Ryan FreeJay GForD

    There must be pokemon in this game, that shits evil.

  • rickalus

    on 11/05 halo 4 is going to smash cod!!! (at the end of gallager video)(pre-release)

    • TREYB0T777

      that has to be it

    • Jake

      LOL

      • Archangel

        LITERALLY

        • Max117

          XD

    • Max117

      ABSOLUTLY

  • http://www.facebook.com/adam.kilman Adam Kilman

    … the symbol everyone keeps seeing is the Forerunner symbol of the Didact. The music in the background of the Gallagher video was music from the Halo 4 OST. Viral marketing is all.

  • PhoenixPrime

    Look for forerunner symbols in EVERYTHING Halo related (even e-mails) from microsoft or 343i over the past few weeks. There are symbols that should unlock a terminal on Waypoint.

    • PhoenixPrime

      Even the weekly bulletins on waypoint.

    • Guest

      And we have translations for these numbers in forerunner glyphs from Halo:CEA:

  • mobber

    i <3 bees

  • One Fast Racoon

    ahhh fucking riddles, i hate them. for some reason im led to believe the gallagher one is fake because of the different format (didnt end with the forerunner sounds when showing didact symbol) and randomness of it, a comedian? and it didnt even have the symbol in the video at one point. but then again it might not be.

    its uploaded by TheHaloCouncil and the other two are Ducain23 and ReadyUpLive…one of the uploader comments on the gallagher video says “November 1st, 3am EST” as a reply to a comment that didnt ask for a date. what happens then?

    i was about to say the times of the first two videos (0:21, 0:27) would make a year in the halo universe but thats 400+ years before the games take place…shit

    instead of deleting what i had previously said about gallagher im just writing all thoughts before posting: the gallagher video is a fake and isnt a part of this, TheHaloCouncil is being a little weiner and trying to be funny and trying to get subscribers. the november 1st, 3am is probably bullshit and nothing happens.
    November 5th though, the day before the release of the game?? im almost certain somethings gonna happen then.

    Butterfly Glacier, Washington is a real place though, and apparently close to the Microsoft Headquarters. im not sure if thats what they were getting at with the titles though.

    • http://www.facebook.com/adam.kilman Adam Kilman

      November 1st at 3am EST is when the embargo is lifted for IGN to publicly display their review of Halo 4.

    • EpsilonWolf

      lol Gallagher is actually apart of this. Here’s how: When you google “Glacier Gallagher”, you get a book called Gallagher’s Glacier. Clicking on the first link will take you to the amazon web page. Then, you’ll see that on the book, the description says: “He fought for the freedom of space- and all mankind”. Does that description sound like anyone you know? ;D

    • hello

      if you type into google “Glacier Gallagher” the first thing that comes up is a book called “Gallagher’s Glacier” and on the front page it says “He fought for the freedom of space, and all mankind”, so i think this isn’t a coincidence

  • Echo
    • http://www.facebook.com/the.retarded.thumb.inator Dom Naanbread Harris

      yeah, and didn’t they say the terminals in CEA would link in with the story for halo 4??

  • http://twitter.com/JosefEJ Josef Jakubiak

    Ducain, RUL and Halo council? I smell conspiracy nice one guys

  • One Fast Racoon

    now im thinking the gallagher one might be real, if you google glacier gallagher a book on amazon comes up with a caption that says “HE FOUGHT FOR THE FREEDOM OF SPACE — AND ALL MANKIND”

    • One Fast Racoon

      sounds a lot like Master Chief

      • Archangel

        dude idk why but i’m getting really creeped out for some reason like how you feel watching conspiracy vids on youtube

        • Black Falcon

          Lol same here

  • pickleman

    for the butterfly thing you can see a formation of a person hint! hint! master chief!

  • Max117

    All of this doesn’t make any sense!

  • Beno

    Gallagher Smashes a cod fish at the end :p thats my geuss

  • Alan

    115CK38 maybe a Spartan. Or ID code of some sort. Probably a spartan

  • Guest

    1105CK38 what does this mean? SPARTAN ID? or what, Im clueless

  • asdf

    Where are people getting the C and the K from?

  • asdf

    Also, these are out of order! Glacier was uploaded before butterfly! If you could change the order, Tim, that would be great.

  • Archangel

    apparently the author of gallager wrote some other sci fi stuff likely linked to all this

  • http://www.facebook.com/andrew.koontz.3 Andrew Koontz

    ok so maby its a sorting code i looked in up somthing about hailfax new england

  • Haydn

    The Legend ^

  • CallMeMayne

    Anyone else notice the halo soundtrack during Gallghar?

  • CallMeMayne

    Halo soundtrack in Gallagher?

  • Garret Wiebe

    It has to do with not understanding the world and what’s in it. As they say the Evil awakening is forerunners. Which as the trailers have shown are feral, and an ancient technology. The Galagher video was recorded, and was showing shit being destroyed. The final two were of us recording random events and seeing the forerunner symbol. Basicly stating, were all going to die if we bring nothing but more death.

  • Haydn

    during the end of the Gallagher video it said 05 what does it mean

  • RasictMexican

    At the end of Glacier there was a 5? At the end of Butterfly there was an 11? Maybe the date 05/11? At the end of Gallagher he smashed a fish? The fishtick button layout is CoD controls… maybe on 05/11 Halo 4 will smash CoD? But at the end of Gallagher there was another 5. 5+5=10. And with the 11, 1+1=2. 2+10=12. 12/11 is the date of the pre-release of BO2… Gallagher is 1:17 seconds long. Master Chief will smash CoD on 5/11 against BO2 on 12/11? Wow, I just confused myself.

  • David

    this is cool

  • WSquared88

    There have been new developments in this didact hunt check the gamestop vote page for everything: http://halo4nation.com/news/3rd-gamestop-preorder-bonus-vote/ the information is in the comments

  • Bigred

    The numbers represent the night launch for halo

  • hello

    it may have something to do with the secret messages in the bulletin although i cant see anything that would relate 5/11 or anything else in these videos but since they have come out in such close proximity and we can’t give any explanation to the messages then this might have something to do with it

  • F22rulez

    I think that the glacier hints global warming

    • Echo

      Possibly how changes are bringing things into the open, e.g. the didact symbol in the glacier, or the prometheans on requiem.

  • http://www.facebook.com/andrew.koontz.3 Andrew Koontz

    we need to get a team together of people who know halo like their right hand my gt andybill24 message me if your intresded

  • http://www.facebook.com/andrew.koontz.3 Andrew Koontz

    hey guys when i booted up halo reach it had apicture of the didact symbol saying incoming 14 days: UNSC protocool violation system check in progress please stand by

    • Black Falcon

      really?

  • WelshboiNoop

    maybe they are going to release something on twitter on 11/05 something to do with Halo 4 before the release just a theory

  • heyitsme

    TIM!! The website http://www.lethbridgeindustrial.com has also seemed to be taken over by the didactno hidden forerunner symbols found by me although scrolling your cursor over some of their pics brings up the didact symbol, they also say that there is not an AI taking over and they have a pic of the Seatle Space Needle with didact sybol creeping onto the moon. Just thought you should know

  • heyitsme

    There are also these!!

  • Black Falcon

    i dont know this is all just really weird… 343 just give us a staright answer.

  • http://twitter.com/Halo4ever001 Halo4ever001

    The first video says 11,the second one and the last one says five, what i got is:
    11.05.05(November fifth 2005)
    now we just need to find out what happend in that date, and how does butterfly and ice has anything to do with it..

    • http://twitter.com/Halo4ever001 Halo4ever001

      it can also be 05.11.2005 because there are places you write it the other way, when the day comes before the month, so it can also have something to do with that date..
