This is something we’ve all wanted. Playing custom games WITHOUT running an online required steam server to play on LAN while our systems are offline. On top of that we all miss playing 4 player split screen with buddies. This is going to bring the spark back into gaming and will be talked about if you guys do add this feature. Because no other game is doing this. I want 343i to be respected as the developers of Halo. So do this as we need this type of feature back into FPS gaming. It’s the perfect advertisement that you could milk despite recycling modes and maps.
Awesome idea forge offline would give me something to do when the internet is out from the weather
ForgeLord already said that forge in online only to prevent malicious behaviour/cheating, also map lighting, nav mesh and audio are baked on the server to make it quicker.
