An official FAQ from 343 Industries answers numerous questions about the Halo Infinite Forge Beta.
This week, 343 Industries will release the Winter Update for Halo Infinite. Our preview has already told you what is included and our list of the new playlist, which modes are played in multiplayer.
With the winter update, players finally get their hands on the forge. The tool can be used to modify maps and thus create your own gaming experiences.
Some important Forge questions have now been answered in a FAQ on Halo Waypoint.
Technically, the forge is a beta, as the developer reveals. But one promises that it is already “incredibly powerful” and has “immense functions”. It will continue to be improved and developed over time.
Among other things, the important question of whether the maps created by the community are included in the matchmaking was answered. Currently this is not the case. Because for the first time, maps have to be created before you have to work with the author and determine whether they meet certain requirements.
But you plan one Forge-Playlist. Only self-made cards from the forge should be included there. Then you continue to look at how the whole thing is accepted by the players and look for further possibilities and approaches to further develop this content in matchmaking.
343 Industries writes about the remake of the map “The Pit” that they will be included in the search before the end of the year. Official remakes other cards will follow later.
When asked when the forge will be leaving its beta phase, it is said that they want to add some features and polish before removing this addition. This includes the ability to edit the game’s official maps. Only six templates can be edited at the start of the Forge.
As can be seen from the FAQ, they are working on the The campaign-KI to use in the forge in the future. They see a lot of potential for cooperative PvE experiences in this and already have a head start with Nav Mesh and the support of AI-controlled bots, which will help to make further progress in this area. However, it is not yet possible to make an announcement about this, as it is a lengthy work that one would like to pursue further.
To find the community’s works, players can visit the dedicated tab in-game. There, 343 also makes recommendations on maps and modes. At the start of Season 3 on March 7, 2023 there will also be one Custom Game Browser give.
It has recently been known that several players can work on their own map. Now it has been revealed that eight people can forge a card at the same time. There is currently a bug that prevents players from joining a forge session. Currently, all players must enter the session at the same time. The remedy has the highest priority, it is said.
A whole bunch more questions from the community about the launch of the Forge on November 7th have been answered in the FAQ. Among other things, you can create your own power-ups, the content from the beta will still be available at the end and water will be added later.
