Microsoft’s sci-fi shooter Halo 5: Guardians is coming to PC. Kind of.
The game’s map editor mode Forge is launching on Windows 10 on September 8th. This will let players host and play custom matches for up to 16 players. Map creations can also be published on Xbox One.
Forge also supports mouse and keyboard and resolutions up to 4k.
The mode’s arrival on PC was revealed in May of this year. Halo 5: Guardians launched for Xbox One in October 2015.
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 supportfor 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,” reads a post on Xbox Wire written by 343 Industries’ Tom French.
Creators will be able to download levels from the Forge community created on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, which they can then customise, or create their own from scratch. Halo 5: Forge opens the door to new possibilities in Halo 5: Guardians and beyond.”
