Following on from 343's Halo Infinite Season 3 update last week, it's now released its first official look at the game's Forge mode.
This is the first installment of a four-part "Forge Fundamentals" series and this first episode looks at the basics of building. There's a recreation of an area from Infinite's story mode, a look at object scaling (including a Giga Grunt), textures and much more.
Perhaps one interesting point to note is the number of objects that can now be placed (compared to the previous version of Forge). It's gone from a limit of 1600 objects to "around" 7000 objects per level. It's described by Forge's lead designer Michael Schorr as being a "huge" improvement.
343 previously mentioned how the Forge Beta will launch on 8th November. The team will be showcasing more Forge in the "coming weeks" - with a focus on scripting next, lighting, and then asset management and file browsing.
What did you think of this first look at Forge from 343? Comment down below.
Impressive stuff. This video seems to have really been well received by the community.
I don’t think anyone doubts the power of Forge in Infinite. The only issues are how 343 handle the series and Infinite in general.
Can you play with random people on forge maps or is it just people your friends with ?
@Meehanuk_1987 playing with ransoms would require matchmaking or custom game browser. The latter isn’t coming until season 3 in March.
You could always fake it by getting invited to a custom game via a random on Discord.
I never really cared about Forge in previous Halos much. I just want more maps! Impressive for folks that are interested though.
Looks decent - like a limited version of dreams within halo.
I dunno if I can be bothered learning it now though
@ParsnipHero Well, there goes any interest me in me re-downloading Halo Infinite soon. I swear, this game isn’t going to be complete until next gen.
@Korgon I’m really impressed by the remakes the community has produced.
Indeed hopefully they get some of those into the normal map rotation for match making.
I was super into infinite for a bit, but can't hold my interest.
I dislike the desync, and the lack of a character level throws me off.
I bought the 1st battlepass, but I cant justify more cosmetics right now.
Things are getting pricey in general, and I can't spend money just cause.
However, I like the campaign quite a bit. It was maybe a bit short for me.. but a fun time for their first go at a new set of ideas.
I actually play halo for the story first, multiplayer second.
