The "Halo 5" newest expansion that is called Anvil's Legacy was recently launched on Xbox One and the most-awaited Forge tools debuted free for Windows 10 only game. Anvil's Legacy brings new features to the game such as maps and weapons.

Anvil's Legacy is the ninth free update for "Halo 5." It introduces new maps in the form of Temple (Warzone Assault) and Mercy (Arena). There are new weapons as well; some of the new weapons are the Tactical Magnum, Wicked Grasp and Berserker's Claw.

According to a report from GameSpot, some of the "Halo 5" expansions included Cartographer's Gift (December), The Battle of Shadow and Light (November), Memories of Reach (May), Hog Wild (May), Infinity's Armor (January), Hammer Storm (February), Ghosts of Meridian (April) and Warzone Firefight (June). However, for the "Halo 5: Forge" in PC, players must have the minimum requirements to play and have the Windows 10 Anniversary update installed.

After this, "Halo 5" players can go to Windows Store and download the Forge map and mode builder free. This is 343's first Halo FPS game for PC and the studio worked with Vancouver-based Skybox Labs on the game.

The game "Halo 5: Forge" contains the entire Arena mode. According to a report from Arstechnica, there are 15 pre-made maps and it has Microsoft-built twist on the game's quintet of Forge sandboxes. "Halo 5: Forge" is probably the best free PC shooter game that has been made; thanks to its surprising depth of content and its astoundingly crisp performance.

The "Halo 5: Forge" setting is maxed out; this includes the texture filtering, texture resolution, shadows, foliage, and ambient occlusion. The game does not also allow "Halo 5" players to disable dynamic resolution changes. When players render at full UHD/4K resolution, a tiny text pops out and says the resolution could change at any moment for the sake of performance.
