It’s the biggest Warzone map revealed so far… which is interesting… since we’ve only seen one before (”Escape from A.R.C” at E3). They spent 16 weeks building the Mega Bloks version of the map; it’s made up of roughly more than 89,000 blocks and weighs half a ton. Raid on Apex 7 is a based off the Halo: Combat Evolve campaign mission “The Silent Cartographer”. This is the second of the six Warzone maps that will be available at launch. There will be an additional six Warzone maps released for free between launch and June 2016.
Here’s the official description for the map.
“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.”
Bauhinia x blakeana is in the pea family Fabaceae. Commonly known as Hong Kong Orchid Tree, this hybrid is a result of a cross between B. variegata and B. purpurea, which are both native to China and Southeast Asia. The leaves of many species of Bauhinia are deeply cleft at the base and apex, resembling butterfly wings. This hybrid is also sterile meaning that it can only be propagated vegetatively by cuttings.
