Halo 5 Quidditch map proves that magic is everywhere

Just because you live in a world of aliens and high-tech sci-fi gadgetry doesn't mean you can't believe in magic. And if you don't believe me, just watch these supersoldier Spartans from Halo 5 (opens in new tab) glide and fly around a Quidditch field, fighting to dunk balls through the opposing team's hoops (sorry, no Golden Snitch yet).

Created by "xXHugabearXx," this Quidditch map is the latest impressive concoction in a long line of impressive concoctions made possible by Halo 5's Forge mode (opens in new tab). Since the mode was made available in December, fans have used it to do everything from remaking Peach's Castle (opens in new tab) from Super Mario 64 to emulating the podracing scene (opens in new tab) from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. One enterprising individual even used it to turn Warthogs into pancakes and made a mini-game (opens in new tab) out of trying to flip or avoid flipping them.

To download xXHugabearXx's "Quidditch Arena" map, simply search for the creator's Gamertag in Halo 5. Once you've done that, nothing to do but take to the skies and have fun - oh, and watch out for gravity hammers.
