From Forging to now being able to actually "sculpt". That's gonna be crazy.
Damn, I've been avoiding updating to Windows 10 like the plague. Guess I have no choice now :/
I've been asking for this Forge on the PC for the longest, just wish it wasn't only for W10. Well, beggars can't be choosers.
There goes 343 again, not listening to the community and milking us for more money.

Why are you even on these forums
Time to see some mods!

This might actually get me into forging. Never did like trying to build maps with a controller.
Same with me, I tried on Reach and Halo 5 on a controller.
Just give us Halo 5 in PC with out Xbox limitations, 343 make Halo amazing again and not just put most of your effort traying to sell Req cards
Some forward thinking ;)

EDIT: Imagine how strikingly beautiful a Halo entry would look with the full fidelity allowed my modern 64-bit DX12/Vulkan PCs. /drools

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.

Wow, then I would actually use forge. Too cool.
I'm going to need a bigger blanket
If they can put Forge on Windows 10, that means the engine works on Windows 10....
hmmm interesting

This is actually terrible. Forge? Really?

"Here, have a small taste of what you're actually wanting." You're not giving us Halo. You're giving us.. Forge? Seriously? When Microsoft announced the whole Xbox and Windows 10 deal, I was expecting more than Half -Yoinked!- ports and terrible F2P variants.
lol wut? this is something the forge community have been asking for for ages.
Except the PC community has been asking for a Halo game for years, so when they get a part of a Halo game, you should expect some backlash. Just put yourself in their shoes.
the PC community should already know another full fledged halo title will never come to PC. People gotta stop getting over hyped for things that are not going to happen lol
Except when you get things like soundbites from Microsoft saying they want to increase game support on PC, and then they start releasing Forge for Windows 10, naturally, people are going to start thinking that there will be a Halo game released on PC. So, while I would have agreed with you back in 2015, now, since Microsoft has expressed interest in putting more Microsoft games on Windows, I don't agree now, and I think Microsoft is going to release games on PC, simply because, that is where the money's at.
Now I have a real reason to use Windows 10 besides Cortana!
This is gonna be great for the community maps
Now we just need the custom game options that are missing and this would be an awesome multiplayer experience.
Anyone know when exactly this is coming? I need to set a countdown for this.
I will be getting it... It will be so much fun to be able to go to a friends house and forge without having my Xbox
Can I use a controller?

Currently, it's us unknown. Probably will be announced at E3 since that's only a few weeks away now. But as for now, ALL ABOARD THE HYPE TRAIN!!!
