Halo 5 'Raid on Apex 7' Warzone map revealed

They took an interesting approach to the reveal...

Microsoft has revealed the biggest Warzone map (so far) during the first day of the San Diego Comic-Con. This 12v12 map is called Raid on Apex 7 and it is considered by Microsoft as the spiritual successor to Halo: Combat Evolved's Silent Cartographer.

The reveal was not made through traditional methods, there was no video or screenshot tour. Instead Raid on Apex 7 was revealed through a Mega Bloks model. 

The 6' x 6' model is composed of 89,500 blocks, weighs around a half ton and took the builders four months to put together. Check Raid on Apex 7 in the images below:

Here's how the map works, according to Microsoft's official description:

"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."
