Last Day COG Tag Containing CSID Code

CSID Entry Screen

The Last Day was a viral promotion of Epic Studios for the award winning game Gears of War 2. The Last Day site allows the player take control of a JACK unit and you are allowed to move across (scripted) the destroyed city of Tollen and are able to click on 26 different tabs and several Omen symbols spray painted on the walls of the city.

The marketing campaign required users to find or be given COG tags and to input the CSID on the tag into the Last Day site. The COG tags were sent to people in the media and a number were planted in major cites across the globe. Several COG tags are still at large and have not been found.


The Last Day features 26 Tabs; these are in the form of blue lights around the side of the users visor. Each tab has one interactive element within it which features information regarding the COG's struggle against the Locust Horde. You can cycle through these tabs in any order jumping to any at will.

  • The first tab shows a satellite dish which may have been from a home or a broadcasting station. Closer inspection of the dish triggers flashbacks of E-Day showing the Locust onslaught against the people of Sera.[1][2][3]
  • The second tab displays an arcade cabinet with the word "Shooter" across the top in stylised letters. Closer inspection reveals images of Locust and COG soldiers. This is potentially concept art for Gears of War or Gears of War 2.[4][5][6]
