Halo 5’s forge tools will finally be hitting PC on September 8 and a new DLC for the game on Xbox One will also be arriving at that time. The Forge tools will support 4K and players can play custom matches with up to 16 players but there will be no match-making support. The new Forge tools can be accessed via the new file browsers which let players access creations made both on PC and Xbone.
There will be no cross-play between Xbox and PC. The new Anvil Legacy update coming to Xbox One will add new maps, weapons, attachments and skins. A new Halo app has also been released for Windows 10 which will allow users to launch all available Halo games. The new Halo app is basically a networking tool for Forge veterans and newcomers to build and share their creations with each other. It will also host tutorial videos and tips and even short clips of users messing around with Forge.
The Halo app will also be host to news regarding the old and upcoming Halo games like Halo Wars 2 and Halo Wars: Definitive Edition. Users can start the app and jump straight into Halo 5 when it launches for PC on September 8. The app, according to Brian Albrecht (EP for the Halo franchise), will bring the Halo ecosystem closer to the PC fans of the franchise . (via halowaypoint )
