For years, Halo’s Forge mode – which it’s debut in 2007’s Halo 3 – has empowered Halo fans to create new maps and game modes that have changed the way people play and experience Halo. Since last month developer 343 Industries has been talking about a release date of 8 September – but we can confirm it’s out one day early, and available to download!
The level editor is responsible for legendary community-created classics such as Grifball and new favorites like Flapjack Frenzy and Ground Pound Arena.
With Halo 5: Forge, the entire Forge experience from Halo 5: Guardians comes to Windows 10, with support for mouse and keyboard, the ability to host and play custom matches for up to 16 players, and a new content browser that spans platforms.
Halo 5: Forge launches on Windows 10 today – grab it from the Store for free. You won’t need too beefy a PC, though – minimum specs include an Intel Core I5 @ 2.3 Ghz, 8 Gigs of Ram and A GeForce 260X or higher. (Bear in mind these are just minimum specs, so expect a fairly no frills visual experience).
Have you tried out Halo 5: Forge for Windows 10 yet? Or are you having that weird bug where the Store refuses to believe you have DirectX 12? Let us know in the comments?
