Solace is the first campaign level of Halo: Side Factions. The level serves as the game's only tutorial level with a limited gameplay. The level provides a partially interactive opening cinematic that introduces the player to their squad.
Fade in on a UNSC probe, orbiting around Io, one of many moons of Jupiter. The view then moves at an increment pace from the rings of Jupiter, passing Sol's asteroid belt separating the inner and outer Sol planets, and finally slows down showing the lighter side of Luna. The camera slowly tilts diagonally, showing Earth.
