Starting Thursday, September 8, PC players will be able to dip their toes into Halo 5: Guardians map-making. As previously covered, 343 Industries and SkyBox Labs are bringing the game's Forge mode over to Windows 10 -- that's the day it'll roll out as a free download on the Windows Store.
The companies are promising "support for mouse and keyboard for highly refined object placement and manipulation, higher-resolution displays (including 4K) for stunning graphic fidelity, the ability to host and play custom matches for up to 16 players, and a new content browser that spans platforms. Creators will be able to download levels from the Forge community created on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, which they can then customize, or create their own from scratch."
