Welcome to Halovember

Halo is back.

The month of November is upon us, and nothing evokes an alien Covenant, galaxy-destroying rings, and super soldiers in big green suits quite like a nice fall breeze. It may be regular old November to the rest of the world, but to Polygon, it’s Halovember.

For the entirety of 2021’s penultimate month, we’ll explain the world that Bungie built and 343 Industries now controls, leading up to Halo Infinite’s release on Dec. 8. We’ll show you a legible version of the Halo universe’s timeline, explain The Covenant and then rank them by how hot they are, and explore exactly how Master Chief pees in that suit.

If you followed Wario during his tenure at Polygon, you know that you should bookmark this page and check it regularly for new Halo stories. Whether you’re new to this sci-fi epic about a big quiet man and his computer friend, or you spent every Saturday night of the early 2000s at Halo LAN parties (ask your parents), Halovember is here for you.

Let’s explore Installation 04 together, Spartan.
