Looking to get into some Halo 5: Forge action when the game becomes available next month? Well first you’ll need to see if your system can support it. Well Microsoft has just revealed the official PC requirements, which are not so bad, but you will need Windows 10 Anniversary Edition.
The minimum requirements say that you’ll need an Intel Core i5 at 2.3 GHz or AMD equivalent, GeForce GTX 650 Ti with 2GB of VRAM and 8GB of system memory. If you want to play the game at the recommended requirements which will give you 60FPS at 1080p, you’ll need a Core i5-3570K at 3.4 GHz or AMD equivalent, GeForce GTX 970 with 4GB of VRAM and 12GB of system memory. Finally if you want to play the game at the Ultra recommendations (60FPS @ 4K), you’ll need a Core i7-4770K at 3.4 GHz or AMD equivalent, GeForce GTX 980 Ti with 6GB of VRAM, and 16GB of system memory. You will also need 40GB of system space and of course you’ll need to be running Windows 10 Anniversary Edition.
This new release will allow you to create more detailed maps, a range of new features, and play multiplayer matches with other PC gamers. It could help make the Halo franchise more popular on PC.
