Releasing today, the ninth free update for Halo 5 is none other than Anvil’s Legacy. Delivering new maps and REQs, the update also packs in massive changes to the game’s Forge mode.
Both showcased in the trailer, Mercy is a revamped version of Halo 4’s Haven map, while Temple is a new battleground for Warzone Assault. Most prominent of all in this content release, however, are the new features and functionality added to Forge.
“When the original Forge mode was released almost a decade ago in Halo 3, it provided aspiring creators with the power to express themselves and share their ideas with the world,” 343 Industries’ Josh Holmes writes in a post on Xbox Wire. “Since then the Halo Forge community has been amongst our most passionate and devoted fans.”
Anvil’s Legacy sees Halo 5 Forge come to Windows 10, allowing PC players to create maps and even play them right there on the PC in full 4K resolution. Those maps can then be uploaded to Xbox Live, where Xbox One players can find them through the new Content Browser.
The Anvil’s Legacy content patch and the Windows 10 Halo 5 Forge are both now available as free downloads.
