The Game Halo: Combat Evolved or Halo 1, or simply Halo, (referred to on the PC Platform as HPC) is a First Person Shooter, (FPS) Video Game developed by Bungie and published by Microsoft Game Studios. The first game of the Halo franchise, it was released on November 15, 2001 as a launch title for the Xbox Gaming System. Heralded as their Flagship Game, having the ability to quickly create or join a Multi-Player Game, (before the Xbox Live Service) using Local Ethernet or "System-Link" supporting a maximum of 16 players. This set-up was a first for a Console Game.

The popularity of Halo: Combat Evolved rapidly increased and Microsoft released versions of the game for Microsoft Windows (ported by Gearbox Software) and Mac OS X in 2003 both having the ability to quickly create or join an On-Line Multi-Player Game powered by Gamespy without subscription, (in addition to Playing Free LAN Based Games) which included Multi-Player Maps not in the original Xbox release.

Halo is set in the Twenty-Sixth Century, with the Player assuming the role of the Master Chief, a Cybernetic-ally enhanced Super-Soldier. The player is accompanied by Cortana, an Artificial Intelligence who occupies the Master Chief's Neural Interface. Players battle various Aliens as they attempt to uncover the secrets of the eponymous Halo, a Ring-shaped Artificial World.
