Introduction

Introduction

WE ARE LOSING.

THE COVENANT HAVE BURNED OUR WORLDS,
KILLING BILLIONS IN THEIR
GENOCIDAL CAMPAIGN.

EARTH IS OUR LAST BASTION –
A CAREFULLY GUARDED SECRET.

BUT NOT ANY MORE.

A COVENANT CARRIER HAS BREACHED
EARTH’S DEFENSES AND ATTACKED
THE AFRICAN MEGA-CITY, “NEW MOMBASA”.

INITIAL REPORTS CONFIRM MAJOR DAMAGE
AND HEAVY CIVILIAN CASUALITIES.

NOW, MILITARY LEADERS OF THE
“UNITED NATIONS SPACE COMMAND”
HAVE PREPARED THEIR RESPONSE…

TEAMS OF HIGHLY-TRAINED
“ORBITAL DROP SHOCK TROOPERS”
ARE READY TO ASSAULT THE CARRIER
FROM NAVY SHIPS IN LOW ORBIT.

THIS IS A NEAR-SUICIDAL MISSION.

BUT THESE TROOPERS ARE
THE BEST OF THE BEST.

The introduction sets the scene and basic outline of the game’s plot and interestingly this is the only Halo game to date to feature a recap of any of the prior events of the Covenant War

Note the background. We are seeing an aerial overview of New Mombasa at night here which matches the setting of the Rookie walking through through the streets.

    Guys, im really thrilled with this, i remember reading ascendant justices halo 3 run through and it was great. Just to comment, check your spelling. Just in the intro i find some errors, which im not used to in the rest of your articles.
    Great luck and keep em coming. IM praying for the day someone does the halo reach run through, with all its chats and secrets. That be awsome.
    Cheers,
