BLURB

Halo: Array - A slipspace portal into the Halo Universe for your friends and family...

The year is 2552. For twenty-seven years the alien collective known as the Covenant has been hunting down the human race. Colony after colony has been annihilated. Humanity has been forced to retreat again and again until a single planet remains the only hope mankind has of surviving… Earth.

The Covenant have discovered the human homeworld, but just as all hope seems lost, a shift in fate occurs that no one could have foreseen. Why have so few Covenant arrived at Earth? What are the Covenant keeping so quiet about? And what secrets may yet be uncovered by humanity’s own origin planet regarding the ancient religion of their cruelest enemy?

Embark on a Great Journey with the likes of the strong, silent Spartan-II supersolider John-117; witty, battle-hardened Sergeant Major Avery Johnson and renowned Naval officer Commander Miranda Keyes as they fight side-by-side through a variety of environments on both human and alien worlds in an attempt to defeat the Covenant once and for all.

DISCLAIMER

Halo: Array is an adaptation of the video games titled Halo 2 and Halo 3. The purpose of Halo: Array is to describe the story presented by the games in the format of a novel. Currently, no official novelisation of Halo 2 or Halo 3 exists. This project aims to pay tribute to the original story using literary devices to describe the characters, events and settings in a unique and engaging manner.

Halo: Array is not intended to be a substitute for playing the Halo games or accessing any other Halo media. Instead, it is an extra work-piece for existing Halo fans to enjoy in addition to official products as well as a gateway into the franchise for newcomers.

Halo and official Halo products are owned and published by the Microsoft Corporation via Microsoft Studios. 343 Industries are the current developers of the franchise and main series. Halo 2 and Halo 3 were developed by Bungie Studios (now called Bungie Inc.).

I do not own any of the preview pictures included under the chapter headings. They are slightly modified screenshots and other images found via a simple internet search. They are placeholders and not intended to be included in the final product.
