Activision and Sledgehammer Games have announced a Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer Alpha that will be running this weekend for all PS5 and PS4 players. The Alpha will be free to all PS5/PS4 users and will run from August 28 at 3AM AEST to August 30 at 3AM AEST.
The Alpha will give PlayStation players a chance to test out the new Champion Hill mode that’s debuting in Vanguard. Labelled as a multi-arena survival tournament, Champion Hill will see teams of either two or three competing in round-robin tournaments against seven other squads to crown a champion.
Similar to Apex Legends‘ Arena Mode, in Champion Hill, you’ll start with a basic loadout but you’ll collect cash during rounds to purchase weapons and gear to give you a leg up. Champion Hill matches will take place on one large map that’s split up into four distinct areas; Airstrip, Trainyard, Market, and Courtyard.
Call of Duty: Vanguard release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC on November 5.
