Forge Features: December 2, 2022
The best thing is when it’s a Hello The player logs into the game and says these three magic words: “It’s Forgin time!”
It’s been almost a month since the release of the Winter Update, which brought with it the long-awaited beta, and we’ve already seen the floodgates really well and open to endless waves of excitement and creativity about what people make with this tool.
And so, that naturally brings us to the second Forge feature, where we feature some of our favorite community-created content. Let’s get right to it!
Maps and conditions
narrows who Halo 3Like you’ve never experienced it before…
We haven’t even given you a Banished-themed Forge board yet, but here it is, simple as day (or, well… night) – Narows has been revamped with a brand new aesthetic and looks absolutely amazing.
You know this dance floor well. Human cannons on either side of a long, multi-level bridge – perfect for those intense sniper duels. Missiles on the Light Bridge in the lower center, and the Plus Shield and Active Camo on opposite sides. It’s a map that rewards strong teamwork and careful coordination, and it looks beautiful as a Forerunner sky bridge and Banished outpost.

While we’re on the topic of map remakes, this is a 1:1 re-creation of Lockout from Halo 2.
Return to one of the most iconic multiplayer maps in all of gaming, whether it’s 1v1 with your friend and clearing the score or if you’re looking for some classic 4v4 team action.
This Lockout edition supports classic modes – Slayer, King of the Hill, Oddball. Grab your friends and indulge in it Halo 2 Nostalgia for the past.
Oh, and er… Please let us know if you notice any supernatural occurrences. It is said that ancient places like this are known for strange ghost…
See, sometimes you just want to get together with your friends, hop on some Banshees, and shoot each other while navigating a bunch of asteroids. Sometimes, that’s what Hello all about.
Zreakz knows this very well and has created such a map to address this need.
Play Banshee Battle: Space Cove with up to 28 players and jump in with either the FFA or Team Slayer modes for some combat carnage. Zreakz recommends setting the instant respawn timer for more frantic gameplay, and I think this is a recommendation worth hearing!
Are you a fan of abandoned hello what? Forsaken by RyzenFox64 it is not exactly That is, but it sure looks like it has a good chunk of that map in its DNA – the aesthetic of the original Xbox map has been lovingly recreated infinite auraModern fidelity, and that strange sense of solitude in a place long forgotten is present evidently from the few glimpses you can get of the (circular) outside world.
Also, see the blocky green tankers of hello what It was recreated in No final Just really hits the spot!
Jump into the map to explore the artwork that went into creating it, or try it out with 4v4 Slayer and King of the Hill.

The solution is one of those maps that contains all the details All Corner made me say “Wow!” high. The screenshot above gives an impression of the dense space in its immersive atmosphere.
At a glance and closer examination, it’s a map you can tell quite convincingly about someone shipping the game. with the comprehensive Credits list to the dozens of sloppy collaborators who contributed to this map, the overall coherence and thoughtfulness of this map is really impressive.
Recommended for 2-12 players. If you find yourself somehow stuck wondering what to play next during customs night, this is your solution. (Come for the map recommendations, stay for the terrible puns!)
In case you missed it, the other week we just sat down for a chat at Community Corner with Red Nomster, who gave us some insight into his journey as a Hello Fan and content creator of both lore and Forge.
