However, it will be possible to test user-created maps in multiplayer games with people on your friends list - complete with mouse and keyboard support and user-defined win conditions.

As for the map building element itself: it s said to be big improvement over the Xbox One, thanks to the precision and control offered by the PC s peripherals.

There s also support for multiple resolutions, including 4K.

Forge on the PC will finally give the mouse/keyboard editing precision the community has always been clamoring for.

On top of that, an updated and optimized UI geared towards mouse interactions makes a lot of the inputs in Forge easier/faster than before, said 343 Industries UGC Director, Tom French.

While this free, limited version of Halo 5 may be a disappointment to those waiting for the first PC Halo title since the Halo 2 port in 2007 not counting the Spartan Assault spin-off , it could be a sign that Microsoft is testing the waters before bringing the full game to Windows 10 at some point in the future.
