Halo 5: Guardians' premier map building tool will be available on PC from 8 September, as a free download via the Windows 10 Store.
Forge users on PC will be able to host and play custom matches with up to 16 other players, download and customise levels from the Forge community, and share and access maps across both platforms.
Also releasing alongside Forge support for PC is the next multiplayer update coming to Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One.
Anvil’s Legacy adds new maps, weapons and REQ’s for free. Here’s a look at what’s included according to Major Nelson’s blog:
• Content Browser that Spans Platforms. “The Anvil’s Legacy content release brings the highly anticipated content browser to Forge mode in Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One – a new, streamlined way to discover community-created Forge content, with support for custom maps, game modes and Forge Object Groups. Combined with Halo 5: Forge on Windows 10 PC, the new content browser will let users browse, access and enjoy content from both PC and console Forgers, regardless of which system it was originally created on.”
• New Arena and Warzone Maps – Mercy and Temple. “With the addition of “Mercy”, a new battleground is open for competitive Arena players, while “Temple” brings the desert environment of Sanghelios to Warzone Assault modes.”
• New Weapons, REQs, Customization Options and More. “Anvil’s Legacy brings several new desirable REQ items including three new weapons, new Sound Dampener attachments, weapon and armor skins, and more.”
