Halo 5: Forge – Latest update adds custom game browser, incoming FOV slider

As promised, Microsoft and 343 Industries have released a new patch for Halo 5: Forge that adds a custom game browser. This patch is around 8.8GB in size, and packs PC-specific fixes and improvements, as well as mouse responsiveness improvements.

This update enables 5K resolution support, adds the ability to render at resolutions higher than the native display resolution (for super-sampling), and adds a Fullscreen toggle in the Settings Menu.

In addition, this patch adds a new list of selectable Gamertags to the Pause Menu, a new Minigame Game Variant, as well as a playable version of the Tutorial Map.

You can download this new update from the Windows Store, and you can find below the changelog for the PC version of Halo 5: Forge.
