While forge mode has been available in the Xbox One version of Halo 5 for a long time now, the mode is set to be getting a standalone release on PC soon. Microsoft has announced that the mode will be coming to the PC Microsoft Store on September 8th, which will be downloadable at no charge.
For those who have never tried out Halo’s forge mode before, it essentially lets you create your own maps and do whatever you want within them. Some users have come up with some seriously awesome content thanks to this mode, and now players on both Xbox One and PC can take part in it together.
As for what the PC version will have, the mode will support 4K resolution and mouse-and-keyboard support, as well as allowing custom matches with up to 16 players. Any level that you’ve played on the Xbox One version of the game can also be downloaded and tinkered around/played with on the PC version.
This mode will go live on PC on September 8th, the same day that the ninth free content release for Halo 5 – Anvil’s Legacy – debuts. That free update bolsters Forge mode while also bringing new maps, weapons and more, though if you want the complete details you can check them out by clicking right here.
