One of VRFocus‘ favourite multiplayer virtual reality (VR) titles from the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2018 earlier this month was Firewall Zero Hour by First Contact Entertainment. Exclusive to PlayStation VR, the team-based first-person shooter has now been given an official launch date, 28th August.
A 4v4 tactical shooter that requires teammates to tightly work together to complete missions, Firewall Zero Hour equips players with the latest offensive and defensive weaponry to get the job done. They assume the role of a mercenary contractor and work with their team to attack or defend sensitive data housed in laptops.
There will be nine map locations in Russia, the UK, and the Middle East to play through, as players do so they’ll earn XP and in-game currency to purchase new equipment and upgrade their characters.
Compatible with both the PlayStation Aim controller and the DualShock 4 controller, as VRFocus found when previewing the E3 2018 build the former certainly worked very well: “the military style of gameplay perfectly suits the peripheral, feeling natural and instantly accessible. Apart from learning the extensive button layout of the controller the dual stick movement control was sharp and precise enough that you could take the entire experience seriously, focusing on achieving the singular objective.”
With the launch now only a couple of months away First Contact Entertainment has revealed a special pre-order bonus which features the following:
- Exclusive Character Camo
- Exclusive Trinket
- Exclusive Weapon Camo
- Exclusive Face Paint/Camo
- Exclusive Velcro Patch
- Extra In-Game Currency
- Double XP for 24 Hours
- ‘Texas’ Contractor Unlock
The latter ‘Texas’ Contractor Unlock’ is Sarah Wells who hails from the US and has a unique skill that allows her to take less bullet damage.
Firewall Zero Hour will be available both digitally and physically in retail stores. For those that don’t already own a PlayStation Aim controller, both the videogame and controller are available to pre-order in a bundle today. For any further updates on Firewall Zero Hour, keep reading VRFocus.
