343 Studios has at long last reported when one can use Forge, the map editor for Halo 5 on Windows 10 PCs. "On September 8, Halo's most powerful and accessible world, level and game creation suite arrives as a free download via the Windows Store on Windows 10 PCs. Halo 5: Forge lets mapmakers, creative visionaries, and Spartans of all kinds build, share and play new levels, maps, and experiences across Windows 10 PC and Xbox One," wrote Tom French, UGC (user generated content) Director, 343 Industries. French also stated that free content for Halo 5 on the Xbox One will be coming to Windows 10 PC as well.
"On the same day, the ninth free content release of Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One - Anvil's Legacy - will deliver significant updates to Forge mode on a console that complements the Windows release, as well as two new maps, new weapons, new weapon attachments, customization options and more." Besides permitting you to make maps for Halo 5, there's support for keyboard and mouse, higher resolutions including 4K, and the ability to host and play custom matches for up to 16 players alongside a new content browser that works crosswise over stages. Obviously, you can download levels from the Forge community and the group made on both Windows 10 and Xbox One that you can customize or basically make your own.
In case you're wondering why Halo 5 isn't completely coming to Windows 10, 343 Industries clarified this back in May. "It's not "full Halo 5" because that would wreck production schedules and be a year too late and the game (Halo 5) wasn't originally built or designed for both platforms in the first place," said Frank O'Connor, Franchise Director of Halo at 343 Industries. He then teased what to expect next from the Microsoft-owned studio with Halo Wars 2 - a real-time strategy based on the Halo universe.
"Halo Wars 2 was built from the ground up for PC and console and, without committing to anything else in this thread, is a better example of what to expect from 343 and PC support in the future." With Halo Wars 2 being worked on at Total War hitmaker Creative Assembly and being managed by 343 Industries, O'Connor's announcement could suggest more coordinated efforts with different developers later on, which could see a portion of the prior games in the Halo series for the PC.
