Halo 5 Forge, one of the more interesting play modes included in the latest entry of the series, is finally hitting Windows 10 PCs in the next few days. As we get closer to its release date, Microsoft started sharing more details on the game recently, with the system requirements also becoming available a few hours ago.

As expected, Halo 5 Forge isn’t going to be an extremely demanding game, if players are going to play it below maximum settings. Things are much different if players want to max everything out, as the game requires a somewhat powerful machine sporting at least 12 GB RAM and a GTX 970 GPU for 1080p / 60 FPS. Ultra gameplay at 60 FPS will obviously even more power.
