Halo 5 Forge was released on September 8, 2016 by Microsoft Game Studios. The game was developed by 343 Industries. Halo 5 Forge is a game map editor and community map platform..
Halo 5 Forge is being delivered by the Windows Store.
Forge is two things: a robust mapmaking tool with new controls for the mouse and keyboard, and a custom game mode for playing on Halo 5’s official multiplayer maps and player creations.
All content created on PC can be shared with the Xbox One community and vice versa.
343 is also adding custom Arena multiplayer games on Windows 10, having made all Halo 5 Arena maps playable. Players can set up custom matches, before testing their creations on PC.
The key bindings are close to Halo 2 on the PC. Fire and aim are on left- and right-click, while a mousewheel swipe down or the Q key swap weapons. Shift sprints, F melees, R reloads.
Graphics settings are pretty basic, so it’s important to have a powerful rig to play Halo. Halo 5 Forge is a 40 GB download.
Halo 5 is designed for the Xbox One so its time to upgrade your box. Again.
