After the events on the Forerunner ringworld Halo, Master Chief SPARTAN-117 returns home to Earth with the AI construct Cortana. The war with the Covenant forces is still not going well, despite the destruction of an entire fleet at Halo, but the Master Chief needs a refit. Armed with the Mjolnir Armor Mark VI, he is on his way to a decorations ceremony with the thought-to-be-dead Sergeant Johnson, when Covenant forces emerge from the Slipstream into Earth space. But something is wrong: the fleet is much smaller than the one used to destroy Reach, humanity's former frontline stronghold. The Master Chief and Cortana, along with Commander Miranda Keyes and the crew of In Amber Clad, must fight off the Covenant and protect Earth, a battle that will take them across the galaxy to a new planet, which is disturbingly familiar...Meanwhile, the Prophets, leaders of the Covenant, are not pleased with the Elite Commander that allowed the Master Chief to destroy Halo, and he is branded a heretic...

Did You Know?
There are two versions of the game, the normal version in the standard green XBox DVD case, and the Limited Collector's Edition, sold in a metal case with a bonus DVD that includes "Making of" featurettes and extra content. The manual for the Collector's Edition is also different from the normal version; where the normal version shows everything from the point of view of the human forces, is orange in color, and has the Master Chief on the front, the CE manual is purple, shows everything from the point of view of the Covenant, and has an Elite with an energy sword on the front. Also included in the CE was a small booklet titled "Conversations from the Universe", a collection of one-page stories between major and minor characters that provides some additional background on the universe of Halo.
