Champion Hill: What’s in store
The area of Champion Hill comprises four maps combined into the Champion Hill arena. There is a central Buy Station Area and four Combat arenas: Airstrip, Trainyard, Market, and Courtyard, as per a PlayStation blogpost.
In the Champion Hill mode of the Vanguard Alpha, you can enter either a Duo (2v2) or a Trio (3v3) match. There will be seven other squads vying for the top spot in a round robin tournament mode. Each squad starts with a set number of lives. The goal of players is to reduce the number of lives of other squads to zero within a certain period of time in a Combat Round. The one who is able to do that before anyone else, wins the mode.
Each participating player in Champion Hill will start with the same Loadout but they can collect some cash by taking down enemies and from pickup points in the map. With the cashearned, you can upgrade your Loadout with new equipment, Perks and Killstreaks during Buy Rounds that open for purchase in between the Combat Rounds.
