A couple of days ago, Microsoft announced that the Halo 5: Forge map editor would be coming to Windows 10 PCs in early September. But alongside the editor itself, the company also mentioned a new Halo app that also coming to the Windows Store. Now we got some more details on that.
The new Halo app, seen in the image up top, is coming to PCs alongside the Forge map editor, and it’ll also be free. The app is designed to function as hub for all things Halo on PCs, offering users a quick way to check out news, explore community content, and start up Halo games.
343 Industries, the makers of Halo billed the app as such:
