SDCC 2015: Largest Halo 5 Warzone Map Revealed Using Mega Bloks
At San Diego Comic-Con 2015, Microsoft and 343 Industries revealed a new Halo 5: Guardians Warzone map called Raid on Apex 7.
According to Microsoft and 343 Industries, Raid on Apex 7 is the largest Halo 5: Guardians Warzone map until now and is the spiritual successor to original Halo’s Silent Cartographer.
The biggest surprise, however, was the way the map was revealed: instead of using any traditional means, Microsoft and 343 Industries partnered with Mega Bloks and showcased the map as a humungous brick structure with working LED lights and over 90,000 individual bricks. Here is the official description of the Raid on Apex 7:
“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.”
