Is this real life? Yep, it seems that even though 343 Industries confirmed that Halo 5: Guardians wasn't coming the PC, we just end up getting more and more Halo content on the PC. The latest piece of the Halo PC pie are a set of free Halo 5 Forge tools for Windows 10 owners.
Microsoft has named the piece of software as Forge - Halo 5: Guardians Edition and it will be coming to Windows 10 soon. So far we're not sure whether the tools have been built from the ground up for support on the PC or whether they've mostly been ported for use on the PC but there will be a few changes regardless. Here are some of the changes posted by Microsoft on an Xbox news post.
+ Keyboard & Mouse Support - For the first time ever, Forgers will have the option of using a keyboard & mouse allowing for more precision control than ever before.
+ Increased Resolution - Support for multiple resolutions including 4k.
+ Test and Play with Friends - Enlist the help of Friends to help build, test, and play your Forge creations on Windows 10.
+ Build on Windows 10 and Publish to Xbox One - Experiences built on Windows 10 can be published to and played on Xbox One, opening the doors for countless new experiences to be enjoyed by players all over the world.
It seems as if the most important part of this is the extra precision Forgers will get with mouse and keyboard support. With this, players will be able to make maps a lot quicker which in turn should help boost the quality of maps for all players.
Not only is this free piece of software coming to Windows 10 soon but the Xbox One version of Forge will be getting upgrades soon too.
