Halo: Combat Evolved is one of the most influential first-person shooter games ever released. Developed by Bungie Studios, who was at the time subsidiary of Microsoft Game Studios, this game redefined the FPS genre on consoles, introducing many gameplay, accessibility and control innovations that fueled the incredible explosion of FPS popularity on consoles in decades to come. After several years on the market as Xbox console exclusive, this landmark title arrived at PC via an ambitious port that transferred almost every one of its celebrated components.

Originally developed as a PC RTS game, after years of development the final product came out as an FPS game that instantly captured the attention of millions of game fans around the world. It managed to do so by offering not only as a complete package of SP and MP modes but also a wide variety of smart design choices that elevated its gameplay, story, audio, worldbuilding, and online interactions into a product that was unmatched by any competitor in its time.

The core advances present in Halo: Combat Evolved regarded its approach to tight controls that allowed sandbox approach in almost every combat encounter, smart enemy AI, intuitive level designs, innovative combat design that promoted giving the player something to fight for every 30 seconds, streamlined damage system that automatically healed players when out of the direct line of fire, and fully-featured 4 player coop support both in split-screen and via Ethernet/Internet. In the PC port, split-screen support was removed.

Because of its impact at the launch of Xbox console and eventual PC port, Halo: Combat Evolved managed to be sold in over 5 million copies in the United States alone, and remastered re-release on modern Xbox One console.


Set in the 26th century, this science fiction game places us in the boots of Master Chief, a cybernetically enhanced super-soldier who is tasked to help humanity and United Nations Space Command in the fight against the aggressive alien collective called Covenant. At the start of the game, USNC discovers an incredibly large alien artifact, an ancient ringworld featuring a breathable atmosphere. Master Chief receives a mission to land on it and find out its secrets and connection to the Covenant collective.

The game features 10 mission-long singleplayer campaign that lasts around 10 hours.
