343 Industries Offers Sneak Peak at Warzone Firefight’s Maps and Forge Canvas
343 Industries has revealed some images for the upcoming Warzoen Assault map Prospect which is set to release soon for Halo 5: Guardians.
Prospect is set on the glassed human colony of Meridian, previously glassed by the Covenant and then reestablished by the mining company Liang Dortmund. Players will be dropped in the mining facility and have to defeat those within it. The level has various flank paths hidden in the terrain, as well as layered scaffolding and trenches. Core defense relies either on players with power weapons or opening the gates to allow vehicle support.
Some images of the new forge canvas, Tidal, is a new environment forge creators will be able to tinker with.
Lastly we are given new concept images for another Warzone map that will be launching with Warzone Firefight. A Canon Fodder feature gave a description for the artwork, which you can read below. An image gallery for these updates will be viewable at the bottom of this post.
Baroque stone ruins lie atop an advanced complex dating to the earliest period of Sangheili interstellar expansion. The San’Shyuum Prophets and their Ministries ruled Sanghelios for millennia, but the fortunes of the Sangheili waxed and waned long before the Covenant’s formation. In an age now forgotten this remote sanctum was a lush garden and the home of towers of glass and steel used to launch the first Sangheili interplanetary probes. But when the planet’s climate shifted and the secrets of antigravity were discovered the towers fell into disuse and eventually eroded away, forgotten in the rush to the stars. The War of Beginnings came and went before the shadow of buildings once again fell across this land, as warrior ascetics seeking a return to ancient traditions built their homes and houses of knowledge and training in what was then a desert. Now, as if a cycle was turning, their fallen temples and cloisters lie crumbling in the hot winds, and strange new structures plant themselves on the bones of the old as life blooms in the hills.
