What is King of the Hill?


King of the Hill is similar to modes like zone capture in some of the more popular titles. Players must capture the "hill," a moving zone that periodically shifts as the game continues.

Gamers should either capture the zone for the longest duration or for a prementioned time target. The mode is available as part of FFA and team-based playlists. If it gets a tactical variant, it will only be a team-based mode.
