One of the most anticipated PlayStation VR games, Firewall: Zero Hour, finally has a release date and it’s pretty soon. Sony and First Contact Entertainment have announced that the game will launch on PlayStation VR on August 28. The game will be available both at retail and digitally on the PlayStation Store.
The four-versus-four team based first person shooter will be playable with either a Dualshock 4 or the PlayStation VR Aim Controller. If you don’t own an Aim controller yet there will be a bundle at retail that will include the game and the controller. You can read more details about the game below courtesy of the PlayStation Blog.
For those not up-to-speed, Firewall: Zero Hour is our four-versus-four team-based tactical PlayStation VR shooter where players must use teamwork, strategy and an arsenal of equipment to either acquire or protect a cache of sensitive data.
New Gameplay Trailer
In honor of the release date reveal, we also have a new Firewall: Zero Hour gameplay 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. 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 nine 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 for those who pre-order Firewall: Zero Hour, starting today.
In the Zero Hour pack, you’ll receive:
- Exclusive Character Camo
