A preview of some of the new objects that are going to be added,

Our additions here fall under two main categories. First, we’re peeling back some of the restrictions around budgets and object type quotas from the original release. We’re still dialing in on exactly how far we can push these boundaries without negatively impacting performance or stability and there are still hard limits on the total number of objects allowed. However, we want to enable forgers as much as possible in this area. With the ability to transfer legacy map variants to MCC coming online, we want forgers to be able to go back and make their old maps better than ever in addition to creating incredible new ones.

The second category is the addition of new objects. Each type of block, vehicle, weapon, etc. has its own quota. In legacy, Forge World had 89 quotas available. In MCC with Thorage, we currently have 141. Objects we’ve added fall under a few different categories and come from different areas of the game. Some are forge objects which were added to other maps while others are assets which appeared in Reach’s campaign or Firefight. The additions cover the full spectrum of forge object categories including vehicles, gadgets, scenery, and structure items. Some were added for their raw visual utility to broaden the palette available to forgers when creating their maps. Others were selected due to unique gameplay properties they offer to empower forgers to create new and unique experiences.

A quick list of some of the additions is below. We’re still finalizing these additions so there could be even more by the time we release the feature. We’ll of course share more details as we get a bit further along.

Vehicles

  • Civilian vehicles (forklifts, trucks, etc.)
  • Space vehicles (Sabres and Seraphs)
  • Vehicle variants (Troop Warthog, Heavy Falcon, Heavy Shade)

Gadgets

  • Ammo crates and ammo pickups
  • Additional grav lift variants
  • Additional shield door and one-way shield variants

Scenery

  • Dropship props
  • Destroyed vehicles
  • A variety of crates and other props
  • Carts, destructible palettes, driftwood, and other set dressing

Structure

  • A wide variety of Forerunner platforms, walls, doors, and more
  • Large rocks and trees
  • A variety of set dressing from multiple palettes

You may have seen some other videos and images floating around the internet of wacky contraptions: tanks with three turrets, falcons with truck trailers, etc. While many of these were built on a foundation laid by these new forge objects listed above, these were the handywork of our modding community. We will continue to enable these users to create and share this content, but this is not part of the new Forge content we’re adding. These contraptions inspire us every day and we can’t wait to see what else the community comes up with in the future. We’ll share more details as this feature gets closer to release. To me, the most exciting part of these additions is that the new content they enable forgers to create can be enjoyed by everyone and across platform boundaries. Over the past year, we’ve featured some incredible content from the forge community in matchmaking across MCC and this trend will absolutely continue with Reach.

Not only new forge items but 343 did confirm that the map and gametype transfer was successful and will be available on launch along with maps and gametypes being cross saved. Froge and Theater wont be available for the PC version BUT will be available for X1 and we have thousands of maps from the transfer to play off of in customs.

I can already see the new rocks being added becoming an eyesore. They don't match the Forge World palette, but I expect that won't stop them from being used on that map constantly.

Are the Sabre and Seraph just props, for show, or could you actually fly them? Same for the phantom and pelican? 

And I noticed they added the front gun variation of the falcon into the game. Hope you can get into the passenger seats as well.

Props only, unfortunately.

The Sabre and Seraph should be flyable, at least according to that video and another one that i saw of some customs dogfights, but not the Pelican or Phantom or Dropship.

Loving these new props, are they just for pc or xbox too?

Yes they are for both but Forge (and Theatre) for PC isnt estimated till 2020 due to having different and more complex controls
