The Halo series is synonymous at bringing FPS shooters to consoles and releasing hit-after-hit over the years. Those who don’t frequent Halo online might not be as familiar with the massive map-making community. To date this community have built some amazing levels that other users can download and play on, but this was always limited to using a bit of a clunky method by designing levels using a controller. That all changes in two weeks time.

Halo 5: Forge will drop on Windows 10 PC’s on 8 September – that’s exactly two weeks from today. This’ll allow players to create levels with ease using a mouse and keyboard and will allow both PC and console users to download and enjoy the various levels. Here is what Halo 5 fans can expect:

[quote]Halo 5: Forge Comes to Windows 10 PC. First announced back in May, 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 support for 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. Creators will be able to download levels from the Forge community created on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, which they can then customize, or create their own from scratch. Halo 5: Forge opens the door to new possibilities in Halo 5: Guardians and beyond.[/quote]

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
