At San Diego Comic-Con today, Microsoft and 343 Industries revealed through a massive, 1,000 pound MEGA Bloks model a new Warzone multiplayer map – “Raid on Apex 7” – for Halo 5: Guardians. Constructed from almost 90,000 MEGA Bloks bricks and sporting interactive LED lights, the 36 square feet model took two master builders 16 weeks to complete.
“Raid on Apex 7” is the largest Warzone level to date and a spiritual successor to the Halo: Combat Evolved , “The Silent Cartographer”. 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 take to the beach to flank the base. Beware of the Covenant though, for they will not let you take this island so 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.
