According to Henderson, Champion Hill operates on three pillars: a lives count, earning cash and buy stations.

The objective of the mode is to be the last team with lives to win. Players can earn weapons, lives. armor and cash throughout a game. Cash can then be spent at Buy Stations for things like weapons, lives and perks. Much akin to that of a Warzone game which is an interesting twist. According to Henderson, Champion Hill will be the only game mode available in the alpha when it goes live Aug. 27.

Henderson also said that the alpha will be exclusive to PlayStation players only.
