Halo Storyline Overview

Halo Universe 101 Halo®: Combat Evolved is still turning average gamers into Xbox fanatics by the thousands. Created by Microsoft Game Studios and Bungie Studios, this awe-inspiring first-person shooter redefined what consoles were capable of—namely intense action, fluid controls, and a riveting story line presented through some of the most breathtaking visuals ever seen. The Halo phenomenon has expanded into novels, soundtracks, and an upcoming sequel, but some gamers still haven’t experienced it. If you’re new to the Halo universe, or if you haven’t delved into the game’s background, here’s a quick review of who’s who, what’s what, and why it’s important. Mission Briefing The year is 2552. The governing body of an overpopulated Earth has sent faster-than-light ships deep into unknown space in order to find habitable planets for its growing population. As the human race pushes ever outward, they come into contact with intelligent alien life forms bearing highly advanced technology. When a collective army of alien species wipes out Earth’s outermost colony, the human race realizes a war has begun. Known as the Covenant due to their militant religious intolerance of human beings, the aliens don’t just want to drive the colonizers out—they want to destroy all humans and the planet where they come from. Outnumbered and outgunned, the human race suffers a series of devastating losses, as the Covenant moves ever closer to Earth. Finish the story here
