Halo on PC – Halo Forge details, system requirements, and release date

Halo games and PC gamers have had a long history.

While the first Halo port by Gearbox is considered one of the greatest ever, Microsoft then followed it up with the Vista-only Halo 2.

Since then we’ve had nothing other than two slightly-above average twin-stick shooters.

With the news that Halo 6 and Halo Wars 2 will be making the jump to Windows 10 however, it looks like PC may be “the” place to play the franchise going forward.

It all starts with the release of Halo Forge in a couple of weeks time.

PC gamers looking for a full Halo experience will likely still be dissapointed, as the “game” is more a glorified map editor with 16 v 16 multiplayer. That said, it does look to offer the core Halo 5 multiplayer experience to gamers on PC.

The game will release for free on the Windows 10 store on 8 September.
