Hi all, it’s Damoun Shabestari here, Game Director on Firewall Zero Hour. Stoked that we’re less than one month away from release day!
To recap – we’re the developers behind Firewall Zero Hour, the 4v4 team-based tactical shooter built from the ground up for PS VR*. In Firewall Zero Hour, players must use teamwork, strategy and an arsenal of equipment to either acquire or protect a laptop full of sensitive data. Firewall Zero Hour drops 29th August 2018, exclusively for PS VR on the PlayStation 4 system!
We know our fans have been chomping at the bit for more Firewall Zero Hour news, and we’re excited to share some juicy tidbits with you today. Below, we introduce the first two videos in a series we call Firewall Zero Hour 101.
1. Gameplay basics, tips & tricks and introducing the cast
Learn from the creative team behind Firewall Zero Hour, and how we set out to create exactly what we dreamed of playing in PSVR: a multiplayer VR FPS** that anyone could pick up and play! You’ll also find gameplay basics, tips & tricks, and catch a glimpse of the backstories for Contractors Okoro, Skip, and Texas.
2. Firewall 101: VR immersion
Delve into the uniqueness of Firewall Zero Hour as a VR game, and our desire to harness the power of PSVR and the PS Aim Controller for unprecedented immersion in multiplayer FPS.
Firewall Zero Hour is built from the ground up for PS VR, and is compatible with both the PS VR Aim controller and Dualshock 4 controller.
You’ll experience gameplay features found only with PSVR, from wielding your PS Aim Controller to ‘blind fire’ around corners, to using the wrist tablet mini-map seen on your arm in-game, and to hearing the crystal-clear directional audio of your teammates all around you in a match.
As always, there’s a strong emphasis on communication in Firewall Zero Hour–verbal coordination with your teammates is a key element to your success!
We’ll be coming at you next week with more Firewall Zero Hour 101 videos, so you can get thinking about your game strategy whether you’re on the Attacking side or Defending side. Keep your eyes peeled, Contractors. We know nothing gets by you.
