Halo 5: Anvil’s Legacy Announced!

Thought Halo 5‘s updates were done? There’s at least one more dose of awesome coming to the game in the form of September’s “Anvil’s Legacy” update!

Launching alongside Halo 5: Forge on PC on September 8th will be Halo 5‘s ninth content update, featuring new REQs, maps and features!


First and foremost is the long-awaited and highly-anticipated content browser for Forge mode allowing players to “search for, highlight, discover, share, and play their favorite Forge creations more easily than ever before”.

A very exciting feature being introduced with this iteration of the Halo content browser is the brand-new “Object Groups”, a new deeper level of content creation and sharing functionality:

“The Halo 5: Guardians Forge Content Browser not only supports custom maps and game modes, but also the ability to share and discover brand new Forge Object Groups – a new feature designed to streamline the creative process by letting players save pre-fabricated object groups such as buildings, bases, and much more. With the new Forge Content Browser for Halo 5: Forge and Halo 5: Guardians, build and share your creations across both Windows 10 and Xbox One platforms for an all-access pass to a nearly infinite array of awesome new experiences.”

Anvil’s Legacy also introduces two new maps, both based exactly where the game is currently lacking in setting – the Elite homeworld of Sanghelios!

Temple (above) is a brand-new large battleground built with Warzone Assault as a core focus, whilst Mercy (below) may look familiar to some of you – this new Arena map is a Sangheili reimagining of Halo 4‘s Haven!

On the REQ front, things aren’t quite so clear, but we’ve been treated to a few sneak peaks at new Magnum variants, attachments, armor skins and something else entirely…
