Today is the first day of San Diego Comic-Con and Microsoft has started it off in a big way… Literally! 343 Industries revealed a new map for Halo 5‘s Warzone game mode which they claim is the largest Halo map ever. The map is called “Raid on Apex 7” and is based on the Halo: Combat Evolved level “Silent Cartographer”.
The official description for the level is: 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.”
Microsoft revealed the map in a highly unique way by showing it off in the form of a Megabloks display that can be seen at San Diego Comic-Con. The display is made up of 89,500 blocks and weighs approximately half a ton; the entire display took 16 weeks to make.
“Raid on Apex 7” will be ready to play when Halo 5: Guardians comes out on October 27, only on Xbox One.
