Earlier this year, Microsoft gave away the majority of Halo 5 to PC users for the massive price of bugger all. And, in the same quiet manner that the Halo 5: Forge bundle was first released, the game has just got a whole lot better - because today, it now has custom browsers.
The most important part of the 8.83GB update, which is part of the giant Monitor's Bounty update that includes changes to Forge, Canon Fodder, Warzone and Playlists, is the addition of a custom games browser.
It's one of the main factors that was stopping Halo 5 getting a foothold on PC, since matchmaking is only available on the Xbox One. Hopefully that will still come over at some point, but for now custom browsers at least mean you'll be able to find a match without having a bunch of mates on.
Not everything PC fans have been asking for has been included. There's reports that the mouse movement still feels a little off, for lack of a more precise term, and a FOV slider wasn't included in the patch despite a 343 developer saying it was "on the list".
The update also makes Halo 5 one of the largest games on the Xbox One, demanding a staggering 97GB of hard drive space:
Halo 5 Guardians is now 97 GB on my Xbox One :/

@majornelson Kind of funny that multi game MCC is only 70 GB and Halo 5 is 91.6GB and they want to add more to it?

When you forgot to move Halo 5 to the EXT drive and can't install the new update until the 92 GB Halo 5 file is moved over.

Fortunately the PC version isn't that large. Windows is telling me that the Halo 5: Forge bundle is just shy of 31GB. (That said, if you haven't changed your settings to stop everything from installing on your system drive by default that might still be real annoying.)
