Even though its predecessors were rather similar to Microsoft's Halo series, this game seemed to be more original, with Kal Wardin's appearance now akin to the nanosuit of the Crysis series. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance (N.O.V.A.) commander and protaganist Kal Wardin receives a distress call from his AI, Yelena, on the long-abandoned planet Earth. He crash-lands in the city of San Francisco and joins up with Echo One to re-activate communications and fight their way to the N.O.V.A. There, he finds out that N.O.V.A. has stolen a Judger artifact in the hopes that it could transform Earth back to the habitable planet it was. Kal is approached by Prometheus, who scolds the humans and the Volterites for being child-like. He tells Kal that the Volterites had discovered the location of more artifacts and were attempting to seize them as weapons of mass destruction.

Prometheus sends Kal to a Judger Ship named Therrius, where Kal meets a rebel Psycher named Maz' Rah. Kal helps Maz'Rah take over Therrius. Once Kal retrieves the artifact, Prometheus immediately transports him to the location of the third artifact, the planet Boreas. Kal fights Volterites on the planet, and also many heavily armed thugs.

Kal meets up with his old friend Rufus who aids him for the rest of the journey. When Kal and Rufus finally arrive at the location, Prometheus school teaches him to recover the artifact which is now in Volterite hands. Once there, Rufus and Kal split up. After Kal finds the artifact, he and Rufus find that Maz'Rah and Yelena are initiating a self-destruct system on the planet.

The Kar'rak, controlled by Maz-Rah, kills Yelena. Kal destroys the monster and Maz'Rah turns on the Overseer, resulting in both of their deaths. The planet falls apart, as Kal and Rufus are teleported to safety by Prometheus. Large Cybertooth. Homecoming - Kal Wardin returns to the earth and fights has way to the N.O.V.A HQ.

Seeds of Life - Kal and Maz’Rah continue to fight their way in order to restore Therrus.

Eye of the Storm - Kal and his old friend, Rufus, fight their way to get the third artifact. Ice and Fire - Kal is transported to Volteron and must fight his way through to stop the Volterites before they activate a wormhole.

Kal must also save Maz’Rah from something. Meltdown - Kal destroys a generator and saves Maz'Rah, and is taken closer to the weapon. Hell's Gate - Kal and his friends fight their way to the Volterite temple in order to stop the artifact from activating.
