Halo is a first-person shooter game created by Bungie. The series revolves around the war between humanity and an alliance of aliens known as The Covenant. It shifts focus to Master Chief John-117 and his companion, Cortana. Halo refers to the large ring-like super weapons created to eliminate the flood. Strong sales encouraged Bungie to produce merchandise for Halo. The studio released graphic novels, and products related to the game.
However, Bungie originally shifted its gears to a third-person action game. They rewrote the game’s engine making it the Halo known by its fans today. There are 13 titles bearing the Halo trademark today including Halo Wars 2.
Halo is now available on Xbox and PC. Stay tuned to Video Games Republic to catch the latest on video games, tech and more.
