Here's a look at Halo 5: Forge PC multiplayer running on Windows 10

The first footage of the upcoming Halo 5: Forge map editor for Windows 10 has been released. The clips show how the maps look in 4K resolution, along with a glimpse of Halo 5 multiplayer on the PC.

One of the videos, as posted on GameSpot's YouTube channel shows how Halo 5: Guardians' multiplayer maps like Molten, Coliseum and Plaza look at the higher 4K resolution that's possible with the Halo 5: Forge map editor on Windows 10.

The second clip shows gameplay on the new Mercy map while playing Halo 5: Forge on the PC. Mercy will be one of the new additions for the upcoming Anvil's Legacy update, which will be released both for Halo 5: Forge as well as Halo 5: Guardians for the Xbox One. You might be able to notice that the UI in the game has been made for a mouse and keyboard, so that players can quickly adjust settings like look sensitivity. The game can also be played on standard controllers as well.

Halo 5: Forge will be released for free in the Windows Store on September 8. Late last week, Microsoft revealed the system requirements needed to run Halo 5: Forge on a PC in minimal, recommended and ultra settings.

  • I guess it looks good, I'll have to watch it elsewhere because video playback is so horrible on the WC app.
  • I'm surprised to see that more people aren't excited about Halo 5 multiplayer coming to Windows 10.
  • Isn't the full multiplayer experience though. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Wonder if we are able to cross-play with those using controller.
  • No, cross play isn't coming to Windows 10 Forge. You can build and share maps between X1 and PC, but you can only play custom games with other PC users: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/a-whole-new-level

  • Fun fun I don't make make
  • What's the gameplay differentiator for people to want to play this? I mean, what makes it different from other fps mp games with people running and shooting others?
  • The weapons, the sounds, the graphics, cool suits, the way the game feels, controls... You know, if you like it.
  • If you haven't played any of the Halo games, then you won't understand. If you have played, then you don't need any explanation.
  • Uhm? This game plays way more then a call of duty then any halo before. Haha they literally went with gameplay changes to keep up with modern games. Which ****** the hame uo big time in my opinion. Gameplay wise this aint a halo anymore Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Since nobody else will give you an answer... Halo 5 (like 1,2, and 3 before it) is an arena shooter , therefore it is unique in a few ways: 1. Even starts - Everybody starts with the same wepons and abilities, everything else is picked up on the map. There are no loadouts or kill streaks. Gaining more powerful weapons/abilities is all about strategy and timing. 2. Longer time to kill - Because of the energy-shield mechanic, Halo allows for players to get a kill even if they did not see their opponent first. 3. Balanced sandbox - 343i has done an excellent job of providing a plethora of different weapons that have strengths and weaknesses depending on the situation. I also love H5 because it feels great to play. All of the mechanics seem to be very well implemented, and moving to other FPS games feels like a downgrade after a session of slaying.  
  • Mercy new map?? It's literally a rehased halo 4 map lol. Heaven it was called. Recycling old maps wont save 343 from themselves ruining the franchise xD Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
