Halo 5 Getting Custom Browser on Xbox One and PC
“Once the custom game browser is available I think the community might get crazy legit.”
Microsoft continues to add new features to Halo 5: Guardians. Develiper 343 Industries has now confirmed that the game is getting a custom game browser on both Xbox One and PC.
343’s Frank O’Connor confirmed this on NeoGAF, possibly accidentally. When discussing Halo 5’s PC Forge tools he said, “Once the custom game broser is availble I think the community might be crazy legit.”
Studio head Josh Holes stated that this is a feature that 343 had wanted to make “for years.”
“To be clear, it’s a new feature that will provide similar functionality to a custom game browser, extending the existing file browser,” he said, as reported by VG247. “It’s something we’ve wanted to build for years and managed to get done as part of our ongoing support for the game.
“We’ll be talking in more detail as we near release, but yeah it’s pretty megaton for Halo and will be a great addition on both PC and console,” he added.
Halo 5’s Forge tools and custom games support will be coming to PC on September 8th, which is the day the game’s newest expansion, Anvil’s Legacy drops for Xbox One.
The game’s file browser arrives on both systems that day, but there is not word as to when the custom browser will be available.
