Halo 5 Forge on PC Gets Release Date, September 8

Halo 5 Forge on PC

A few months ago, it was announced that Halo 5 Forge on PC would be coming soon to Windows PCs. Forge being on PC would allow Halo players to make Forge maps in Halo and then upload them to the internet for Xbox One players to use. Now, we finally have a release date for when it will be coming out.

Halo 5 Forge on PC is the beginning of a new chapter in Microsoft’s cross-platform gameplay. The Play Anywhere system doesn’t include a Halo game, but with Halo 5’s Forge mode, players can now play a Halo game on PC…at least in a Forge game. Otherwise, Microsoft has no plans to port the game to the PC, though apparently subsequent Halo games may have that happen.

This means that the Play Anywhere Program, which will already be including games like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Sea of Thieves, and more, may very well have a Halo game be added to it in the future, or even multiple Halo games.

Halo 5 Forge on PC supports both controller and mouse controls, and you can play custom matches with up to 16 people, so you can test your maps out before you upload them onto the Xbox One’s servers. You can also download other Forge maps created on the Xbox One onto your PC.

This makes Microsoft the second company to try and bridge fan-created content between PC and Xbox One, since Bethesda began allowing Fallout 4’s PC players to build mods that they can then upload to Bethesda’s servers to upload onto consoles on both Xbox One (which it came out on first) and Playstation 4.

The Halo 5 Forge on PC program will be releasing on PC on September 8, so you don’t have much longer to wait until you can start building new arenas for people on consoles to play on.
