Microsoft just released a major series of new updates and software to enhance the gameplay in Halo 5: Guardians yesterday.  Sit back and relax as we walk you through everything.

First up, Microsoft has released the Anvil’s Legacy Content Update, a major free patch for Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox One.  Take a look.

If you want a more in depth look at the gameplay, here’s the official live stream with over two hours of gameplay.

The update weighs in at about 5.5GB, so you may need to free up some space on your Xbox One Hard Drive before patching your game.

You can read all the information about the update here.

The second major release is the standalone Forge map editor from Halo 5: Guardians for Windows 10. Some people prefer using a keyboard and mouse to make their unique creations and now players will be able to do exactly that.  The entire Halo 5 engine is included with Forge so modders will be able to test their new maps on the PC or Xbox One before releasing their content on Xbox Live.  Matchmaking isn’t allowed on PC, but maps can be tested by players on your friends list.

Just a friendly warning that system requirements for the PC Forge Editor are very steep, heck it requires at least 50GB of Hard Drive space just to install itself. Your PC must have a copy of Windows 10 with the Anniversary Update installed to download Forge from the Windows 10 Store.

The official Halo app can also be downloaded from the Windows 10 store free of charge but we (along with many others) have been unable to use it due to the fact it crashes immediatly upon startup.

Halo 5: Guardians is out now exclusively on Xbox One.
