Halo 5 is coming to Windows… kinda

Yep, not the entirety of Halo 5 but it’s forge.

Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re bringing this same spirit of creation and collaboration to the PC later this year with Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10. Best of all? It will be absolutely free. In addition to the evolutions already present in the mode on Xbox One, Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10 will include some exciting new features designed specifically with PC users in mind, including:

  • 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.

Wow! You mean a keyboard and mouse have more precision than a controller? Wow, congrats Microsoft… It only took you guys over a decade and a half to figure that one out but, better late than never right?

It’s a good thing I’m not really interested in the Halo series, because once again they’re making Halo an exclusive to the Windows 10 platform. Much like when Halo was released during the Vista era in an attempt to convince users to upgrade from XP. Sorry, but El Dewrito kinda already beat you guys. Plus it’s not limited by what version of Windows you run. 😛 Watch, Microsoft will probably come along and find some way to remove them from the face of the earth…
