It's amazing! My PC barely met the specs required, but after a long 35 GB (!!) download it's running!

Since I don't have an Xbox, this is the first new Halo for me (other than messing around with ElDewrito). And what a jump from Halo PC/CE to Halo 5!

I've barely gotten started with it, but I'm excited to finally have a NEW Halo for PC! And 343 Industries (Microsoft) has said they will bring more Halo to the PC in future!

Worth mentioning... for now you have to invite your friends to join your game (or be invited to join someone else's game).

But it won't always be that way. In case you missed it in the article I linked (by Josh at 343):
In a future update for both PC and console, we will be expanding the existing Content Browser to allow players to search for and join custom games in progress. This will make it easier for players to sample the amazing content being created by our community and to find new players to match up with in multiplayer.

Yep, a games browser is coming (something like the server browser in Halo PC/CE).

Still no sign that we'd be able to setup dedicated clan servers :( , but at least in future you'll be able to find random games being hosted by individuals on their PC's.

I wonder if my WinXP would do fine for a 35 GB game.

CSGO works in mine, so I'll assume this forge game will too.
