Gears of War 4 Escalation Mode
Escalation is a new multiplayer mode in Gears of War 4. This is essentially the game’s ‘king of the hill’ gameplay mode.
In Escalation, two teams will need to gain 200 points to win the match. To collect points, a team will need to capture any of three hills in the map. Captured hills will steadily produce points to the team that controls it. Another way to win a match is for a team to control all three hills at the same time.
Both teams will want to control at least two hills to have a good point production rating throughout the game. Two hills are usually situated near the spawn points of both teams. The third hill is in the middle of the map which requires both teams to venture farther out of their spawn points in order to capture it.
