Hey, do you like Halo 5? Do you want to play Halo 5 on PC? Well, tough. It ain’t on PC. But, on September 8th, you’ll be getting something pretty close.
According to a post on the official Xbox site, Halo 5‘s Forge mode will be coming to Windows 10 PCs on September 8th. For those of you who don’t know, the Forge is basically a map-customizing mode for the game, allowing you to add elements to existing maps like weapons and vehicles, as well as create entirely new maps from scratch with a little creativity. The PC Forge will have full mouse and keyboard support, and the ability to host and play custom matches of up to 16 players. You’ll also be able to download and play other created maps from the Forge community using a platforming-spanning content browser. Best of all, it’s free! So it’s not quite Halo 5 on PC, but at least this way we might be able to play Grifball.
The PC Forge will be releasing concurrently with the Anvil’s Legacy DLC for the main game, which includes new Forge components, weapons, and maps.
