Team-based strategic military shooter Firewall Zero Hour is one of the summer’s most anticipated titles for the PlayStation VR, as it promises to offer fast-paced PvP shooter action on the Sony virtual reality (VR) platform.
In preparation for the release coming up soon, the development team at First Contact Entertainment have released a video through the PlayStation YouTube channel where they talk about Firewall Zero Hour and give some insight into its development.
In the video, Joshua Ochoa, the Vice President of First Contact entertainment describes the title as a first-person strategic multiplayer shooter which is exclusive to PlayStation VR, and goes on to praise the title as ‘incredible.’
President and CEO Hess Barber than takes over to explain that players will be either on an attacking team or defending team, with the classified information stored on a laptop at stake. Attackers need to infiltrate and steal the laptop, while the defenders need to prevent the other team from doing just that.
There are a range of military firearms available, all of which have been modelled on real-world counterparts. In addition to guns, players can make use of items such as grenades and flashbangs, mines and C4 explosives, or signal jammers.
For the characters, the developers explain that the characters in Firewall Zero Hour are not taken from a single military group, and are instead contractors with a range of backgrounds, whose training in different areas need to be carefully applied in order to reach the objective.
The development team emphasise that the title has been designed to be inclusive, and not aimed strictly at FPS fans, and the team is hoping that anyone can jump in and enjoy Firewall Zero Hour.
The full video is available to view below. Firewall Zero Hour is due for release on 28th August, and pre-orders for both the downloadable and physical versions are now available through the PlayStation Store.
