Halo 5 Forge coming (Sept 8) to PC for free! (with 16-player online games)

Unread postby PÕQ~Technut » Fri Aug 26, 2016 2:54 pm

It is confirmed... Sept 8th will be the release of Halo 5 Forge for the PC! It will be FREE and it will support 16-player games!

"Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10 (requirements). Best of all? It will be absolutely free."

"bringing Halo 5: Guardians’ entire Forge level-creation experience to Windows 10 PCs, along with a host of awesome new features, including mouse and keyboard support, 4k resolution display capability, a brand new content browser that makes showcasing and sharing your creations easier than ever before, and the ability play your creations with friends online. "


"Host and play custom matches for up to 16 players on Windows 10"

Doesn't mean we'll be able to host clan servers (yet)... but it's progress! :coolio:

Forgot to mention there will also be a "Halo App"

"The Halo app will be the quickest and easiest way to find, download, and launch all Halo games that are available on Windows PCs. It will also be a great way to get the latest news, videos, tutorials, featured content, update notes and more from the Halo universe on your PC. Our vision is for the Halo app to become the best way for our fans to get the latest information and details about all of our games, both past, present, and future."

People in the halomaps forum are having their sides whether they get it or not. To me, I won't get it.

I don't understand some of those people... it's great to still love 10-year-old Halo PC/CE that much (as we all do here) but if a better Halo is (finally!) coming to PC then we should embrace it, not fear it. And how can you argue with getting it for FREE?

Yes, it may take some of the players away from good old PC/CE but I have a feeling someone will soon figure out how to run dedicated servers for Halo 5 PC and then we'll finally have a decent Halo for the next 10 years. (And Microsoft has hinted that Halo 6 and other future versions will also be available on PC, which all sounds like good news to me.)

Anyway, here's a video of some PC gameplay to get you excited for Sept 8th:

Can't wait to get my hands on it... btwn, will there be the admins to host or to admining the servers? will we have our own private servers? So this means we're saying bye-bye to halo 1?

Halo 1 was the reason why this clan exists. You really think we'd leave it?

Also, since it's a free game, I guess I'll be the only one who won't be there with you guys for the new one :(

We definitely will NOT be leaving Halo PC/CE. Nothing there changes.

As for Forge, it is my understanding that initially there will be only personal hosting off your Win10 PC, similar to how you can host a Halo PC/CE multiplayer game from your personal PC (if you can figure out the port forwarding). So the only "admin" would be the person hosting from their PC, and I'm not even sure what commands they would have available to them. We'll all learn more about it together once it is released.

Until someone figures out a way to run dedicated servers (like we have in PC/CE), I don't think we'll be doing anything in the way of official clan servers for Forge. But we can certainly play around with personal servers and maybe organize some games on Forge.

And L4NC3R I'm sure there will be quite a few people who don't have the hardware/software to run Forge (requirements) so you won't be the only one not playing it. But for those who can, it will be an interesting new experience.

We have a laptop that passes the requirements, It's a Lenovo gaming laptop. We'll buy a desktop pc soon.
It'll be cool if we, the admins, get to host or admining the servers :). I know our leaders will never leave us behind. :great:

I guess I am the only one. Windows XP is far from Win10. And I don't like Win10.

Let's just see about the future, perhaps it might work in my old laptop.
