Forge Mode Allows Custom Maps Since 2007
Introduced in 2007’s Halo 3, Forge empowers players to construct their own maps and modes using powerful editing features. Many fan creations have become so polished that they get added to Infinite’s official playlists. This shows the complexity that can be achieved.
Recently, one ambitious player even recreated a full campaign level from the original 2001 Halo in Forge. This demonstrates the creative potential of the tools.
Content Update 29 Adds New Forge Capabilities
The January 30th update, called Content Update 29 (CU29), will introduce the following key features:
Covenant color palette with 70+ new decorative pieces
Forge Mode Creator to simplify linking custom maps and modes
Material swapping between decals and foliage
Upgrades to AI tools for bot placement
Various quality-of-life improvements
These new capabilities will expand the visual styles and gameplay possibilities open to Forgers.
Ongoing Support Redeems Rocky Launch
Developer 343 Industries’ extensive post-launch support for Infinite has helped redeem the game after a disappointing launch lacking expected features like Forge. Through substantial new content and community feedback, Infinite now seems on track for a bright future fueled by its passionate creative fans.
