From the very beginning, community creations have been central to the Halo experience. From stacking up grenades underneath an unsuspecting Warthog to multiplayer movie-making, the Halo sandbox has always been fertile soil for millions of moments and memories created for, and by, the fans.
In 2007, Halo 3 upped the ante with the introduction of a map manipulation tool called Forge, and quite literally changed the game forever, enabling a cascade of creativity, from new map and unique game type experiences to interactive art – all created by the community itself.
When Forge was redesigned from the ground up for Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox One, it opened the door to even more inventive community-created content, pushing the boundaries even further to give players more power and control than ever before, and removing as many constraints as possible to allow for the creation of incredibly high quality maps. From the stunningly beautiful maps created by WyvernZu, to the hilarious mini-games from TurbTastic, we’ve been continually blown away with the countless crazy and creative experiences that Halo fans have made. As a famous Spartan once said, however, “I think we’re just getting started…”

Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re bring this same spirit of creation and collaboration to the PC later this year with Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10. Best of all? It will be absolutely free. In addition to the evolutions already present in the mode on Xbox One, Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10 will include some exciting new features designed specifically with PC users in mind, including:
  • Keyboard & Mouse Support – For the first time ever, Forgers will have the option of using a keyboard & mouse allowing for more precision control than ever before.
  • Increased Resolution – Support for multiple resolutions including 4k.
  • Test and Play with Friends – Enlist the help of Friends to help build, test, and play your Forge creations on Windows 10.
  • Build on Windows 10 and Publish to Xbox One – Experiences built on Windows 10 can be published to and played on Xbox One, opening the doors for countless new experiences to be enjoyed by players all over the world.
If you’re already finding yourself excited about the incredible possibilities that are opened up by expanding Forge to the Windows 10 platform, trust us, you’re not alone. 343 Industries UGC Director, Tom French, and his team are already chomping at the bit to get these new creative tools into the hands of the community.

“Forge on the PC will finally give the mouse/keyboard editing precision the community has always been clamoring for. On top of that, an updated and optimized UI geared towards mouse interactions makes a lot of the inputs in Forge easier/faster than before.
Since we released Forge in Halo 5 we’ve seen so many amazing new things come from it – from weird mini-games we could have never anticipated to meticulously crafted maps that are even approaching the visual quality of internally built maps. The team has continued to wonder what we’d get if we could put Forge in the hands of as many people as possible, and making it free on Windows 10 literally gives the chance to anyone who wants to jump in and try their hands at building a cool new map for Halo 5. I’m excited to see what the future content from the community will bring!”

HOLY HELL.
Hell yeah. Now I can actually get into Forging.

Wait, does this mean we might get Halo 5 on PC. If so, I need to ditch my Xbone, PC Gaming Master Race all the way!
Going to be amazing, I can't wait!

Doubt it but the fact Forge will be there means there's no reason halo can't be either ;)
Wow...I'm not a Forge user but that is pretty cool.
So, we just get Forge on PC for more precision? Geez, I thought the "0.000001" would be precise enough for you.

Now all those PC builders will get to spend 18 hours on a 30 minute (Reach time) build :p

Just Forge and Custom Games. Good, the PC community is often more toxic than a Flood hive.
There goes 343 again, not listening to the community and milking us for more money.

Thought so :p Any idea how the whole 4k Textures and stuff will work? The One doesn't support them (for now anyway)
They want us to make maps with limitations on PC, it doesn't make sense to use forge when there are better editors on PC like UE4, Unity. I seriously doubt that Forge will start allowing custom objects/textures or increase the horrible size limitations of what someone could make.

Listen to the Moa.

I listened, I learned. Life is complete, thanks Moa.
-Yoink- yes!
This is very interesting. I haven't bothered to try the Halo 5 Forge, but now it seems I have no reason to not try it. I do wonder though, does this imply something about Halo slowly moving towards PC in general, or whether this is just a direct response to the requests over the years to have a PC Forge.

FTFY
This is what were talking about 343, bravo.
Next announcement I want is Halo reach on PC

1080p 60fps Modded armor so someone can make SPI

But yeah on topic, I saw this coming
This is super cool. I can't wait to finally give forge a try. Hopefully my skills will improve using a PC. tidbit: I'm terrible now
thanks 343 :)
