Halo 3 is a first person sci-fi shooter designed for the XBoX 360 game systems by developer Bungie and producer Microsoft Game Studios, exclusively for XBoX 360. It follows on John-117, the Master Chief, during humanity's 26th century war with the alien species The Covenent. Set after the first two Halo's, Earth's location has been discovered by the Covenent, and the Humans are fighting a losing war. The deluded Covenent have released the Flood again, and a three-way battle ensues, where only the best will stand victorious. As S-117 hurtles Earthward in a Forerunner spacecraft, the stage is set for a legendary finale, with the fate of Earth and indeed every being in the galaxy hanging in the balance.
