On the 8th September, Halo 5: Forge will be available through the Windows Store for Windows 10 PCs.
Halo 5: Forge allows map makers and Halo fans to create, share and play maps across Windows 10 PC and Xbox One. So while PC owners won’t get the full Halo 5: Guardians experience with the campaign and existing content, they will have the option of taking the game online and playing custom creations against others.
Halo 5: Forge Comes to Windows 10 PC. First announced back in May, we’ve partnered with our friends at SkyBox Labs to bring the entire Forge level-creation experience from Halo 5: Guardians to Windows 10, with support for mouse and keyboard for highly refined object placement and manipulation, higher-resolution displays (including 4k) for stunning graphic fidelity, the ability to host and play custom matches for up to 16 players, and a new content browser that spans platforms. Creators will be able to download levels from the Forge community created on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, which they can then customize, or create their own from scratch. Halo 5: Forge opens the door to new possibilities in Halo 5: Guardians and beyond.
On the same day, Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One will get the latest free content drop in the form of Anvil’s Legacy. The update adds additional functionality to the Forge to bring it more in line with the Windows 10 version. Anvil’s Legacy also includes two new maps, new weapons, new weapon attachments and customization options.
Content Browser that Spans Platforms. The Anvil’s Legacy content release brings the highly anticipated content browser to Forge mode in Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One – a new, streamlined way to discover community-created Forge content, with support for custom maps, game modes and Forge Object Groups. Combined with Halo 5: Forge on Windows 10 PC, the new content browser will let users browse, access and enjoy content from both PC and console Forgers, regardless of which system it was originally created on.
New Arena and Warzone Maps – Mercy and Temple. With the addition of “Mercy”, a new battleground is open for competitive Arena players, while “Temple” brings the desert environment of Sanghelios to Warzone Assault modes.
New Weapons, REQs, Customization Options and More. Anvil’s Legacy brings several new desirable REQ items including three new weapons, new Sound Dampener attachments, weapon and armor skins, and more.
Halo 5: Guardians is available now exclusively on Xbox One.
