What is Microsoft Halo?

Halo is a military science fiction video game franchise. It was created by Bungie, managed by 343 Industries, and owned by Microsoft Studios. The series centers on an interstellar war between humanity, and a theocratic alliance of aliens known as the Covenant. The Covenant is led by their religious leaders, known as the Prophets, who worship an ancient civilization called the Forerunners. The Forerunners perished in combat with the parasitic flood. Most of the games center on the experiences of Master Chief John-117, one of a group of soldiers named Spartans, and his artificial intelligence companion, Cortana. The only other Spartan that is focused on the series is Noble Six, the protagonist of Halo Reach.

Each time the player joins or creates an Internet multiplayer game, Halo automatically checks the Internet for the latest update. Players may also run its stand-alone updating tool, Haloupdate.exe. from the root of the folder where Halo is installed. Halo also checks for updates by using HTTP. Players can set the host and client ports if they have to customize Halo to work on their network.
