Halo 5: Forge system requirements are revealed

Halo 5With Halo 5: Forge being the closest PC gamers are going to get to the Master Chief for the foreseeable future there could well be a lot of interest in 343 industries map editing tool.

The Halo 5: Forge system requirements are now out, and it looks like most PC builds should be able to run it. You’ll  need at least a 650 Ti to run it at minimum settings, but for a 1080p / 60fps experience (i.e, one that’s on par with the Xbox One version) you’ll need a GTX 970 with 12GB of RAM and an i5-3570k. Meanwhile, those with a 980 Ti and i7-4770k or equivalent should be able to run it in 4k.
