Call of Duty Vanguard: Play Before Release - Alpha Test Coming Soon on PS5 & PS4

Call of Duty Vanguard

Sledgehammer Games gives the first information about Champion Hill in Call of Duty Vanguard. In a current blog entry, the developers go into more detail on the game variant, which can be described as a kind of evolution of the well-known Gunfight mode. However: Unlike Gunfight, in Champion Hill you are not on smaller maps, but on a larger map that is divided into different areas. "Eight teams in four arenas" face each other, as can be seen from the trailer below. As a squad, it's your job to be the last team to leave the field - and decide the game for you.

Everyone starts with the same loadout, and you collect additional weapons and expansions during the course of the game. You will also receive virtual money that you can also invest in upgrades to your equipment. The map of the new game mode for Call of Duty Vanguard (buy now 79.99 €) is divided into four areas: a runway, a train station, a market and a kind of inner courtyard are waiting for you. If you were blown over, you can watch the rest of the game as a spectator.
