Hi guys! Shabs here from First Contact Entertainment, the studio behind PS VR exclusive Firewall Zero Hour. Today, we’re excited to announce that Firewall Zero Hour will be free to play for active PS Plus members this weekend: 18th-20th January!
We can’t wait to welcome so many new PS VR players to the fray! The Firewall Zero Hour: Weekend Trial Demo will include all the pulse-pounding modes of the full game (Single Player Training – Player vs. AI, Multiplayer Training – Co-op vs AI, and Multiplayer Contracts – PVP Players vs Players), as well as the entire roster of maps in the game, including the newly added map, Containment!*
What is Firewall Zero Hour
What’s Firewall Zero Hour all about, you ask?
It’s a team based, tactical 4v4 multiplayer FPS — built from the ground up for the total immersion of PS VR. In Firewall Zero Hour, you play as a mercenary Contractor, hired by an anonymous handler to either protect or obtain highly sensitive information found on a laptop hidden in controversial locations across the globe.
You’re hired as part of a team of four Contractors, who must attack or defend against another team of four Contractors. Whether playing on the attacking team or defending team, communication with your teammates is key to surviving in this world of intense firefights and unpredictable outcomes.
Launched August 2018, Firewall Zero Hour quickly took the PS VR community by storm, with over 1 million “Contracts Fulfilled” in the game to date!
We’ve released three updates since launch, adding new free content like a new map, Contractor skills, weapons. We’ve also added fun cosmetics, such as facepaints, trinkets, and weapons/character skins available for purchase on the PS Store*–and even more new content planned for 2019.
Multiple ways to play
You can play Firewall Zero Hour with a PS VR headset, PS Camera and either a Dualshock 4 controller or PS Aim controller.
Once you fire up the game, it’s great to experiment with the different comfort settings available for VR locomotion.
In the game menu settings, you can toggle between smooth turning and snap turning. You can also change the “vignette” settings, where you toggle on/off blinders for sprinting. PS4 Pro users can also toggle anti-aliasing options.
