After tackling Metroid in Season 1, the second season of Sport Informer‘s Video Gameography podcast strikes on to one of many largest shooter franchises in existence: Halo. This week, we look at Bungie’s swansong for the Halo franchise: Halo Attain.
Halo Attain launched on September 14, 2010, for Xbox 360 and served as a prequel to Halo: Fight Advanced. Set on the doomed planet Attain, gamers management a brand new member of the Spartan Noble Crew as they valiantly defend the human-occupied world from an enormous Covenant invasion. The time and setting gave Bungie artistic freedom to introduce new characters and flesh out an occasion that had solely been referenced in books, whereas the multiplayer launched new (although divisive) mechanics corresponding to armor skills.
Be part of hosts Ben Reeves (@BenjaminReeves) and Marcus Stewart (@MarcusStewart7), and Polygon‘s Mike Mahardy (@mmahardy) as we unpack the historical past and affect of Halo’s most emotionally charged entry to that time. And for extra Halo, make sure to take a look at our definitive ranking of every Halo game.
