First Contact Entertainment today announced on the PlayStation blog that Firewall Zero Hour, the upcoming multiplayer VR shooter for PSVR, finally has a release date, and that a special PS Aim bundle will be available at launch.
Heading to PSVR on 29th August, 2018, the four vs. four team-based shooter decidedly plays out much like Counter Strike or Rainbow Six. We had a chance to go hands-on with Firewall Zero Hour recently at E3 2018, and it certainly replicated some of the frenetic action of its flatscreen cousins, albeit in the immersive environment of VR (with PS Aim controller in hand).
The game has a familiar mix of weapons, including assault rifles, shotguns, sub-machine guns and pistols, and also supplementary weapons such as C4, smoke bombs, flashbangs, and grenades. Firewall Zero Hour is also launching with nine map locations across Russia, the UK, and the Middle East.
Pre-orders will go live later today here; pre-order customers will get the following perks in the ‘Zero Hour pack’:
- 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
On top of both digital and physical copies of the game, the studio is also offering a Firewall Zero Hour PS Aim bundle, something we would consider a necessity to get the highest level of immersion out of the fast-paced shooter.
