Podracing is probably the best thing about The Phantom Menace, and this latest Halo 5 Forge map helps prove it.


Xbox Live user CaptainDireWolf is the author of a new Halo 5 Forge map that recreates the famous podracing scenes from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. The expertly-made map is called The Boonta Eve, which is the name of the tournament in the film.

As of the time of writing, there’s no way to determine winners from losers. However, there are plenty of other notable details. Firstly, CaptainDireWolf did a great job recreating the pods using in-game assets. Dying spawns you in a cage up near the stands to shoot your opponents.

The design of the pods themselves is also excellent, and they even have the beams holding the pieces together.
