Military-industrial concerns that power the UNSC war machine are prime targets for Insurrection factions.

Empire is a multiplayer map in the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta and Halo 5: Guardians.[2] It is set on a AMG Transport Dynamics facility in Andesia during Insurrectionist activity at the capital, Noctus.[1]


There is at least one walkway on the edge of the skyscraper, where a large cluster of tall buildings can be seen. A raised platform exists in what is assumed to be the center of the map. There are some tunnels and rooms around the map.

The pathing changes between the Beta and the final release version.

Before the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta, Empire was set at an earlier dawn, causing the map to be slightly darker. More rays of sunlight also shone from out behind the buildings in the background. The Beta version featured a different layout and was a lot brighter. The final version of the map had different pathing, but was a little darker, though still a little later in the morning.[3]
