automatically when the game is started.

Alternate ending sequence:
Successfully complete the last level of the game in campaign mode under the
legendary difficulty setting. The new ending features a human and alien
fighting hand to hand. The human will say "Its over", and then they hug
because they know the explosion will kill them both. Also, the FMV sequence
of each battle scene will be slightly longer.
Playing under the legendary difficulty setting introduces new dialogue not
heard in other modes. For example, after being massacred by a force of
Grunts, Jackals and Elites, one of the grunts asks, "Can I have his helmet?".
Also, your fellow Marines seem to be a bit more chatty (as well as profane).
Under the legendary difficulty setting, view the entire first FMV sequence.
During the sequence, the General says things very differently when compared
to the sequence under the easy difficulty setting.
