Halo 5 Forge
"Halo 5: Forge" will debut on PC this September. Microsoft

Windows 10 players are getting “Halo 5: Forge.” In order to prepare fans for it, developer 343 Industries has listed down the necessary requirements needed to run the program.

“’Halo 5: Forge’ is primed to bring Halo 5’s entire Forge level-creation experience to Windows 10 PCs, along with a suite of great new features, including full mouse and keyboard support, 4K resolution display capability, a band new content browser to make showcasing and sharing your creations easier than ever before and the ability to play your creations with friends online through custom games,” said the developer in the official Halo website.

343 Industries showed the minimum, recommended and ultra specs needed to run the game. All three versions will require the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition OS, the DirectX12 and HDD at 40GB. The differences can be seen below:


CPU: Intel Core i5 at 2.3Ghz or AMD Equivalent

GPU: GeForce 650 TI



Recommended (to run 1080p and 60FPS):

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570k at 3.4Ghz or AMD Equivalent

GPU: GeForce GTX 970



Ultra (for 4K resolution, 60FPS):

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770k at 3.4Ghz or AMD Equivalent

GPU: GeForce 980 TI



Once “Halo 5: Forge” is out, it will allow players access to the 16-player custom multiplayer. The good thing about this project is that it is not merely a port to the PC. Since it is still unlikely that the developer will bring “Halo 5 Guardians” to PC, “Halo 5: Forge” was reworked for the PC so that the mouse and keyboard function will allow for easer level creation.

According to Rock Paper Shotgun, players can host and play matches, alongside a bevy of other features for the game. That means being able to customise others’ projects, share levels and download game modes. However, it seems that the matchmaking system will not be part of the equation.

“Halo 5: Forge” will be out on the Windows 10 on Sept.
