With Mircosoft's newest Halo released on November 6th, the Halo 4 Glyph floated over London, England earlier this month in a sci-fi publicity stunt. In a video capturing the event, a vibrant, 50 foot, red flying saucer-like aircraft hovers around the London sky.
If you're wondering what a glyph actually is, its a hieroglyphic character or symbol that dates back to ancient Mayan writing systems and is part of the Halo gaming world.
This Halo 4 Glyph garnered a crowd of nearly 500 people and marked the launch of the widely popular gamed. The fourth installment of Halo moved an astonishing 22 million in sales on the day it was released. This was one in a series of publicity stunts by Halo including a full one day Halo takeover of Liechtenstein landmarks.
