First Contact Entertainment announced that Firewall Zero Hour (2018), the tactical team shooter for PSVR, is getting what they call their “biggest update yet” next week.
One of the main changes coming is a new system of time-limited progression taking the form of missions, tasks, and cosmetic rewards.
First Contact says that each week you’ll be assigned a new mission to complete, which in turn will grant you new rewards. There’s also set to be new optional daily tasks that can net you XP and Crypto.
As for missions, you’ll find one free mission available every week, although more can be accessed through the paid ‘Op-Pass’, which lets you unlock additional premium and bonus missions in order to earn seasonal cosmetic rewards.
The Op-Pass will cost $10, and is supposedly works like the Battle Pass in Fortnite. And there’s another microtransaction type too on the way called ‘Hack Keys’ that let you auto-complete missions.
Here’s how it breaks down:
- Operation: Nightfall update: Free update for all owners of Firewall Zero Hour-featuring new in-game UI, new Maps, and more. This update is viewable as soon as players load up Firewall Zero Hour.
- Nightfall Op-Pass ($9.99 USD): Obtain the Op-Pass, which allows access to all Operation: Nightfall Missions, Tasks, and Rewards.
- Hack Key x5 Pack ($4.99 USD): Each Hack Key will instantly complete one Operational Mission. You will not gain any XP for Missions completed this way, but you will be instantly awarded full Crypto, in addition to the Mission Reward (cosmetics only). Hack Keys are a great option for players who don’t have as much time to play as they would like.
- Nightfall Op-Pass + 25 Hack Keys Bundle: Includes access to Operation: Nightfall, in addition to 25 hack keys to be used on any Operational Mission. You will not gain any XP for Missions Completed this way, but you will instantly be awarded full Crypto, in addition to the Mission Reward (cosmetics only). Another great option for players who don’t have as much time to play as they would like.
If microtransactions have you bummed out, First Contact has at least sandwiched them with a number of updates including a new map called ‘Hangar’, a new contractor type called Ruby (‘Thief’ type can steal Crypto), new weapons, better AI behavior, and a refreshed UI.
Another map and contractor is planned for later release during the season. To learn more about the specifics, take a look at First Contact’s blogpost.
