Tense, tactical 4v4 PS VR shooter Firewall Zero Hour gets a release date & new trailer

New gameplay video gives you a taste of First Contact Entertainment’s long-awaited multiplayer FPS, coming exclusively to PS VR this summer

Hi everyone, Damoun Shabestari here from First Contact Entertainment. Today we are excited to announce the official release date for Firewall Zero Hour: 29th August, 2018!

We know our fans have been wondering what we meant when we said Firewall Zero Hour was releasing “very soon” — and now you know it’s only a couple months away!

For those not up-to-speed, Firewall Zero Hour is our 4v4 team-based tactical PS VR shooter where players must use teamwork, strategy and an arsenal of equipment to either acquire or protect a cache of sensitive data.

Firewall Zero Hour

In honour of the release date reveal, we also have a new Firewall Zero Hour gameplay trailer.

In this trailer you’ll see what it’s like to assume the role of a mercenary Contractor and work with your team to attack or defend the sensitive data housed in laptops located across the globe.

You’ll hear communication between teammates and understand how teamwork is key to your survival. You’ll see some of the equipment you’ll use, from assault rifles and shotguns, to deadly C4 and grenades. You’ll get a taste of the exotic locations you’ll be working in–with 9 map locations in Russia, the UK, and the Middle East.

You’ll feel the tension of tactical combat and experience the unpredictability that comes from playing in a team of 4 humans vs. 4 humans in PS VR. Firewall Zero Hour also offers training modes where you can train alone or with others against AI.

Earn XP and in-game currency (“Crypto”) as you progress with your Contractor. Firewall Zero Hour is built from the ground up for PS VR, and is compatible with both the PS Aim controller and Dualshock 4 controller.

An internet connection is required for all modes of Firewall Zero Hour, including Single Player Training Mode. PS Plus is only required for Multiplayer Training and Multiplayer Contract modes.

We’re also excited to announce a special pack of pre-order exclusives for those who pre-order Firewall Zero Hour, starting today.

In the Zero Hour pack you’ll receive:

  • 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

One of the highlights of the Zero Hour Pre-Order pack is the ability to unlock Contractor ‘Texas,’ aka Sarah Wells, on day one. Texas hails from the U.S. and has a unique skill that allows her to take less bullet damage. Here she is sporting all of the exclusive items you’ll receive in the Zero Hour pack—cosmetic items that you can apply to any of your Contractors.

Lastly, we’re excited to confirm that Firewall Zero Hour will be available digitally at the PS Store and physically at retailers, and that Firewall Zero Hour will be available as a bundle with the PS Aim controller!

Keep your shots lightning fast and deadly accurate with the precision motion tracking of the PS Aim controller. From aiming down the sight of your weapon to firing around corners, Firewall Zero Hour with the PS Aim Controller transports you into the heat of intense FPS action. The Firewall Zero Hour PS Aim Bundle is available for pre-order beginning today. The pre-order includes the Zero Hour pack of exclusives.

There will be tonnes more to share leading up to release, including tactics and techniques that will help you strategise, communicate, and dominate in Firewall Zero Hour. To stay up-to-date on the latest news about Firewall Zero Hour, follow us on Twitter or learn more here.

‘Til next time, Contractors!

It’s a PvP shooter but features a PvE mode like Rainbow Six Siege.

Looks great. Glad it has a PvE mode. If this game is successful, it would be nice to see a mode like Terrorist Hunt later down the line.

Was excited for this, but as I don’t get much time to play I’m not really up for the idea of dying quickly because other players who have more time on their hands have better guns.

Sorry guys I’m out.

It doesn’t say anything about more experienced players having ‘better’ guns.

Where are you pulling this from?

3.2

while they didn’t explicitly say ‘better’, they said:

“Each time you complete a match in Firewall Zero Hour, you earn XP and our in-game currency, Crypto as a reward for your accomplishments. XP unlocks new weapons, attachments and equipment. You can purchase the items that you have unlocked using Crypto. The more you play, the more you unlock, the more you purchase.”

@kinky

As byteflare link says, the more you play the more currancey you get.

And if you think that those new weapons aren’t better than ones that aren’t unlocked then your kidding yourself..

You really have to give this game an open beta, allow influencers to produce videos and market the game for you.

I am beyond excited, but i am worried this game wont find an audience, but it easily could, this is a style of game VR is craving

Not massively interested in the game, but if it results in cheaper Aim controllers on the market then I’m happy

Amazon have the game and controller for £59.99 preorder. Bit of a bargain I’d say!
