Halo 5: Forge Comes to PC on September 8, Anvil’s Legacy Content Release Revealed

August 24, 2016 By: CrashTestDummy Category: Whats Up?

On September 8, Halo’s most powerful and accessible world, level and game creation suite arrives as a free download via the Windows Store on Windows 10 PCs. Halo 5: Forge lets map makers, creative visionaries, and Spartans of all kinds build, share and play new levels, maps, and experiences across Windows 10 PC and Xbox One. On the same day, the ninth free content release for Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One – Anvil’s Legacy – will deliver significant updates to Forge mode on console that complement the Windows release, as well as two new maps, new weapons, new weapon attachments, customization options and more.

Here’s a quick refresher on Halo 5: Forge:

  • Halo 5: Forge Comes to Windows 10 PC. First announced back in May, Halo 5: Forge brings the entire Forge level-creation experience from Halo 5: Guardians to Windows 10, with 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. Halo 5: Forge opens the door to new possibilities in Halo 5: Guardians and beyond.

We can’t wait to see what the community will build with the added power of Halo 5: Forge on Windows 10 PC.

Additional details on new content coming in Anvil’s Legacy include:

  • Content Browser that Spans Platforms. The Anvil’s Legacy content release brings the highly anticipated content browser to Forge mode in Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One – a new, streamlined way to discover community-created Forge content, with support for custom maps, game modes and Forge Object Groups. Combined with Halo 5: Forge on Windows 10 PC, the new content browser will let users browse, access and enjoy content from both PC and console Forgers, regardless of which system it was originally created on.
  • New Arena and Warzone Maps – Mercy and Temple. With the addition of “Mercy”, a new battleground is open for competitive Arena players, while “Temple” brings the desert environment of Sanghelios to Warzone Assault modes.
  • New Weapons, REQs, Customization Options and More. Anvil’s Legacy brings several new desirable REQ items including three new weapons, new Sound Dampener attachments, weapon and armor skins, and more.

Stay tuned to Xbox Wire and Halo Waypoint for more Halo news, including tomorrow for additional details on the brand new Halo app coming soon to Windows 10 PC!

Magic, Stealth, Free Running: September’s Games with Gold Has it All

August 24, 2016 By: CrashTestDummy Category: Whats Up?

Games with Gold has four new titles for you to add to your game library for September. As with last month, Xbox One will get two dedicated titles, and two Xbox 360 titles, as well, through Xbox One Backward Compatibility, for a total of four completely free titles thanks to Games with Gold.

For Xbox One, September brings two exciting titles to Games with Gold with the much-anticipated launch title Earthlock: Festival of Magic and the stylish Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. On the Xbox 360 (and Xbox One through Backward Compatibility), Xbox Live Gold members start the month with the critically-acclaimed Forza Horizon, and then follow that with the visually stunning Mirror’s Edge.

As usual, all games are available only for a limited time, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold program, so sign up now to get in on the action!

* Earthlock: Festival of Magic ($29.99 ERP): Available from September 1-30 on Xbox One

* Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China ($9.99 ERP): Available from September 16- October 15 on Xbox One

* Forza Horizon ($19.99 ERP): Available from September 1-15 on Xbox 360 & Xbox One

* Mirror’s Edge ($14.99 ERP): Available from September 16-30 on Xbox 360 & Xbox One

On September 1, we have a brand-new, very cool ID@Xbox title launching into the program. The world of Umbra has stopped spinning, and as Amon, it’s up to you to save it in the RPG Earthlock: Festival of Magic. Bring Amon and his team through the harsh, beautiful Umbra landscape and fight off monsters of all kinds in this modern turn-based role-playing battle system.

Then on September 16, see the Assassin’s Creed world from a new perspective with Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. A new take on the stealth action series, the Chronicles games bring new assassins to the fore with a 2.5D stealth platformer that offers the classic feel of the series with a unique twist. Help Shao Jun avenge the loss of her brotherhood and bring down your enemies with power and grace.

On Xbox 360 (and Xbox One via backward compatibility), start the month off by jumping behind the wheel in the dynamic, open-road street racer Forza Horizon. Set in Colorado, Forza Horizon is an open-world racing game that will let you rise to the top of driver rankings via official races or earn points for destroying road signs, catching air, or drifting. With over 300 cars to unlock and an open-world full of challenges, this a perfect way to hold you over before the visually jaw-dropping Forza Horizon 3 gets released! Plus, backward compatible racing titles now support Xbox One wheels, including Forza Horizon!

Last by not least, on September 16 comes Mirror’s Edge. In an oppressive city, clandestine messages and deliveries make their way around via Runners, jumping, climbing, and dashing across rooftops. Play as Faith in the original first-person free-running action game, fighting and outrunning a powerful regime that is not afraid to use deadly force. Experience the breathtaking sights and sounds and always land on your feet.

As always, Games with Gold is here to give you a mix of brand-new releases, incredible classics, and guaranteed fun. Check out the full details on our Games with Gold program, and make sure you get in on the action while you can!

* Titles are available as free downloads for a limited time, for qualifying paid Xbox Live Gold members in all markets where Xbox Live is available. Some regions may offer different titles depending on market availability. See Major Nelson’s blog for additional details.
