Halo 5: Guardians Presents The New Warzone Raid On Apex 7 Map, The Biggest Halo Map Ever Released
As promised, Microsoft has presented brand new details about Halo 5: Guardians at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, revealing in particular a new Warzone map that is said to be the biggest map ever released for the entire series of shooters. It is called Raid on Apex 7 and is inspired to the Silent Cartographer level that made Halo: Combat Evolved so popular on the original Xbox.
343 Industries has confirmed the Raid on Apex 7 map is four times the size of anything seen in the franchise before and is available for 12x12 Warzone matches. It was unveiled using a Mega Bloks 6' x 6' model that took two master builders 16 weeks to complete. And yes, those are working LED lights.
Here’s the official description for the map, as delivered by Microsoft:
"Clearing out the initial Covenant threats and controlling the Forerunner Spire in the center of the island is paramount to a team's success and provides a central base of operations. If your team loses the Spire, don’t despair; players can use a system of caves or taketo the beach to flank the base. Beware of the Covenant though, for they will not let you take this islandso easily. They will counterattack and fight to retake their territory. Continue the push for control of the island and take out the opposition's core… before you awaken something much worse."
