PlayStation owners will get a chance to check out the new Champion Hill Multiplayer Mode.
PS4 and PS5 owners are in for a treat this weekend as they’ll be able to try out the alpha for Call of Duty: Vanguard for free.
The alpha, which is exclusive to PlayStation, will give players the chance to check out the new multiplayer game mode, Champion Hill. This will be the first time that players will be able to get their hands on Call of Duty: Vanguard before the November 5th release date and no PS Plus subscription is required, everyone will be able to take part.
Champion Hill is a totally new game mode and aims to blend tactics and strategy with quick action and close-quarter gunplay. Champion Hill takes the form of a multi-arena tournament with players being split into teams of two or three, with each team having a set amount of lives, players must aim to reduce their rival squad’s life count to zero in a series of timed rounds.
Every Squad will start with the same loadout, but picking up drops and taking down enemies will give you cash which you can use to upgrade your weapons and armor. However, players will have to stay on their toes and the way that they spend their cash can have a big impact on how they approach taking on other squads, whether it’s saving your cash for bigger upgrades, or spending it on smaller more cost-efficient ones, these decisions are crucial and have a big role to play.
Champion Hill is fairly unique from a design perspective as it has four maps, Trainyard, Airstrip, Market, and Courtyard which have all been combined together to form one massive arena. If players are eliminated they’ll be able to watch the rest of the match in spectator mode from the central Buy Station Area.
Players who have either Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty Warzone, or Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War can access the Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha through the menu screen of those games. Simply select the Alpha menu blade, on the far left of the main menu screen, and you can jump in if the alpha is installed or you’ll be directed to PlayStation Store where you can claim your free download. Participants will also be rewarded with a calling card and emblem that can be claimed in Call of Duty: Vanguard on release.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will launch for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC on November 5th 2021.
