Microsoft all set to release their Halo App for Windows 10 PC, allowing Halo fans to download their games as well as pick up the latest news, videos, and tutorials in a single easy to reach the place.
Halo 5: Forge will be launch on this app on September 8th, with the app acting as a launcher for all future Halo games on PC. Next year Halo Wars 2 and Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will launch on this app for Windows 10 PC.
Yesterday we shared some exciting news about the upcoming release of Halo 5: Forge for Windows 10 PCs, including – perhaps most importantly – the fact that it will be available on September 8 as a free download in the Windows Store. As part of that announcement, we also slipped in some news about the new Halo app that we will be releasing with Halo 5: Forge. I’m Brian Albrecht, EP for the Halo franchise (people who hang out on Waypoint probably know me better as Me11ow Sparky), and today I’d like to take a few moments to talk about this new Windows 10 PC Halo experience.
As we were working on Halo 5: Forge for Windows 10 PCs, we asked ourselves, “how can we do more to bring the Halo ecosystem closer to our fans on PCs?” and “how can we do more to open the door now and in the future for our PC gamers?” The Halo app will be the quickest and easiest way to find, download, and launch all Halo games that are available on Windows PCs.
It will also be a great way to get the latest news, videos, tutorials, featured content, update notes and more from the Halo universe on your PC. Our vision is for the Halo app to become the best way for our fans to get the latest information and details about all of our games, both past, present, and future.
The Halo App for PC will likely become a Halo-oriented Storefront for PC, acting as a place where PC gamers can access the Halo franchise while at the same time not directly using the Windows 10 Store, which currently viewed negatively by most PC gamers.
