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!”

We’ll have a lot more to share about Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition on Windows 10 later this year, but look for even more exciting updates coming to the Forge experience in Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox One in the coming months – including new environments, advanced file sharing capabilities, new pieces, palettes, props, and much more.
As always, stay tuned to HaloWaypoint.com and @Halo for all the latest on Forge and rest of the Halo universe.

HOLY HELL.
I gotta tell ya, I am so happy they are proceeding with that. It'll not only make it less stressful, imo, but it gives us a wider variety to be more creative.
This might actually get me into forging. Never did like trying to build maps with a controller.
Halo has lost it's exclusivity.
coooooooool
i cant wait

There goes 343 again, not listening to the community and milking us for more money.

/s
I'd like to imagine this is sarcasm
That's usually what an /s means.
Thought so :p Any idea how the whole 4k Textures and stuff will work? The One doesn't support them (for now anyway)
No there are no 4K textures JUST 4K Resolution for the OUTPUT on the Windows 10 edition
That's pretty awesome.p, now they just need to have file share in the game so people can propertyly access forge creations
Strictly Windows 10? Not looking too enticing...
Going to be amazing, I can't wait!
it sure is,
better upgrade to windows 10

Only the display resolution can be up to 4K, textures will stay the same as they are on Xbox One.

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.
Limitations won't change. They said maps would be playable on Xbox One, so yeah. ;)

no one cares about exclusivity
Microsoft still makes money
Great news. As good as the forge controls are a mouse and keyboard will be far greater. Plus I can RDN to my PC on my lunch breaks and carry on forging!
This will be epic... Knowing how great the community is already, giving them the ability to do all of this from a much easier to use interface in the computer... Wow.
I have already been using Windows streaming to Forge on PC with a controller. This is going to be awesome.
Finally I will actually be able to use forge in Halo 5 effenciently!!!
Reminder: The Windows 10 upgrade is only free until July 29th.
Forge is a constant surprise of awesome. It was great at launch, but now it's becoming Legendary. For all their mistakes, 343i got Forge just right. It's a masterpiece.

HOLY HELL.
I think I might be projecting too much into the marked part but for me this sounds like Halo 5 on pc (maybe not to full extent and I'm almost certain this is just my wishful thinking blinding me)

No, I don't think it'll be Halo 5 on Windows 10. Just Forge. In what capacity (can run around as Monitor and Spartan), has yet to be revealed.
