Halo 5: Forge is coming to Windows 10 PC Sept. 8, developer 343 Industries confirmed today.

Forge is the level editor tool for Halo 5: Guardians first introduced to the series through Halo 3 in 2007. Players can select from a vast list of pre-made effects and assets like walls, ramps and natural structures in order to create their own multiplayer maps.

The stand-alone mode will be available as a free app on the Windows Store and will have exclusive features like support for mouse and keyboard and resolutions up to 4K. The maps created in Halo 5: Forge can be made accessible to other players on PC, the full game on Xbox One and vice versa. The app even allows users to play custom matches of up to 16 players to test out their creations.

Halo 5: Forge will launch on the same day that Halo 5’s newest expansion, "Anvil’s Legacy," hits Xbox One. The free update will add expanded features to Forge mode and new content including two maps, plus more weapons, attachments and armor skins.
