    In the latest Halo Community Update, a new comic series titled Halo: Rise of Atriox was announced. The first issue of the 5-part miniseries is expected to release on August 2, 2017, with each of the consecutive issues releasing at some point after that.

    As its name suggests, Halo: Rise of Atriox shows the rise to power of Atriox, the Jiralhanae warlord who leads the Banished and serves as the main antagonist of Halo Wars 2. Issue one opens with him leading his Jiralhanae (Brute) brethren in an assault against a UNSC outpost. As the series progresses, readers will watch Atriox become the leader of the Banished, from his humble beginnings as one of many thrall in the Covenants ranks.

    Halo: Rise of Atriox will be going more in-depth into Halo lore pre…

    Halo: Combat Evolved, the video game which kicked off the Halo franchise and helped launch the Xbox, was recently added into the World Video Game Hall of Fame as one of the four inductees for 2017. This is an amazing achievement for the franchise, as only 15 other games have ever had the honour of added to this list since its inception in 2015. Halo: CE now sits in the hall of fame, amongst other gaming icons such as Super Mario Bros, Pac-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Tetris, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Doom, Legend of Zelda and Pong.

    Games are nominated for places in the World Video Game Hall of Fame based on four criteria:

    • Icon status - how recognisble and memorable the game is.
    • Longevity - how long the game remained popular.
    • Geographical reach - whether the …

    The newest DLC for Halo Wars 2, a leader named Colony, has arrived. Though Colony was expected to release earlier this week on Monday the 24th, the DLC was delayed until today for the purpose of quality assurance.

    Colony is the name chosen by a bond brother pair of Mgalekgolo gestalts (or Hunters, for those of you not fluent in Halos lore), and as such, its main focus are units and leader powers based around Lekgolo (the worms that make up Hunters). Hence, Colony brings with it several new additions to the Halo Wars 2 sandbox, such as: Goliaths (Giant Hunters who ditch their assault cannons in favour of a more up-close and personal approach), Skitterers (Small turret-like machines controlled by lekgolo worms, which can attach as bodyguards to …

    What are the Guardians?

    March 30, 2017 by Aya787

    Heyo! Aya here.

    Now, I was thinking about this while reading through my last post to see if I made any mistakes, and I remembered something about Onyx that has always been nibbling at the back of my mind. I know that when you guys read this title, then you're probably going to freak out and say that "We already know what the Guardians are" probably because of stuff you've seen in Halo 5, whether you played it or watched someone else play it, right? hehehehe< WRONG! Actually I wish I could say that and it be true but I can't. I just wanted to say it.

    Well, the only reason I'm doing this is because I haven't done that. The only thing I absolutely know for sure about the Guardians is that they were created by the Forerunners, they can take out …

    Heyo! Aya here.

    Before you go any further, I warn you that there may be spoilers for books if you are reading the books, so if you don't want to get spoiled about something, I suggests coming back and reading this later. But please come back read and please come back and comment below, I will always answer back.

    Ok, so I've been reading the Halo book series like you guys probably already know, hopefully, right? And you know that in my last Personal thoughts post I made a big deal about something that happened in the book. Like for instance in the last personal thoughts post I went on and on about one of the chapters where Master Chief and a few other Spartans were faced with a situation, that in my opinion, could have opened up to, probably,…

    This service record is recalled by Commander Oganessian

    Battle: Battle of Sanghelios

    Commanding Officers: Arbiter Thel ‘Vadam, Shipmaster Rtas ‘Vadum, Commander Oganessian.

    February 1, 2568

    “The landing zone is clear,” comments the voice of an old war hero, Rtas ‘Vadum.

    “Good. Be sure to mind your head I’m dropping soon,” I report, “Lieutenant Fathree are you ready?”

    “I don’t know I never did like these drop pods.”

    “Come on have some fun,” I comment before being interrupted by the familiar acceleration of the drop.

    “Ah!” cries Ensign Fathree, “They should at least warn us!”

    “They usually do, but it’s more fun to see shinies have fits.”

    “I really don’t like you.”

    “You know you love me.”

    “Do I know I love you? Yes, yes I do.”

    “Knew it.”

    “Oganessian?” asks…

    Downfall of a Wiki?

    December 11, 2016 by ExplodingChickens

    In an argument not too long ago, I contested that Halo Nation still had greatness in it. I put forth the idea that we still have many visitors to this site seeking knowledge on a great but injured franchise and the deep lore and messages that surround it, the characters that inhabit it and the weapons and ships that usher in the endless war. All of that, I supported. Was I wrong?

    Do people read the edits that I make? Are the contributions appreciated, or even noticed? Do people know that wikis like this exist, these compendiums of knowledge created by fans, edited by fans, maintained by fans...sabotaged and attacked and divided by fans? 

    Do you suppose that the schism divided us too much, by fandom and admin and broad idealism? 

    Is this somet…

    It has been almost 6 years since I first joined Halo Nation, which at the time was struggling greatly from the recent split from Halopedia. Many of the people that moved from what was now called Halo Nation vandalised the site greatly, either removing content or replacing it with vulgar things. At first I was interested in moving to Halopedia, as Halo Nation was nothing at this point. But because of the way I was treated there, I decided to stay on Halo Nation. Right around this time, Ultra Force was in the same situation as me, and we both decided to stay on Halo Nation. Going through the proper channels to rise in the ranks, we both ended up as Administrators in the mid-2011s. We were astounded by this at the time, as the Administrators…
