FirewallZeroHour is a 4 vs. 4, team-based tactical VR shooter where players must use teamwork, strategy and an arsenal of equipment to either acquire or protect a cache of sensitive data. In FirewallZeroHour, two teams of mercenaries (Attackers and Defenders) are hired by anonymous contract handlers to either protect or obtain the data, housed in a laptop located in exotic locations across the globe.
There will be a number of different weapons in FirewallZeroHour, ranging from Assault Rifles, SMS, Shotguns and Pistols. Each time you complete a match in FirewallZeroHour, you earn XP and our in-game currency, Crypto as a reward for your accomplishments.
There will be nine maps at launch, set across three real-world regions: Russia, United Kingdom and the Middle East. A powerful social element driven by team communication and interactions that are hyper-effective via 3D sound and PS VR’s built-in microphone.
Finally, communication with your teammates is critical in FirewallZeroHour –and your key to strategizing, surviving, and completing your Contracts. Our focus is making Contracts Mode (Multiplayer competitive PVP) as balanced, satisfying, and repayable as possible.
Public: Join a team of mercenaries to take on an AI army and earn XP. Public: Join a team of 4 ranked players online to complete objectives, earn XP and Crypto.
There’s much more to come, and we can ’t wait to get our game into the hands (and onto the heads) of the PS VR community! February 2020 is definitely a positive month for free titles on the service because not only do you get the rather good Bios hock: The Collection but PlayStation VR gets one to, FirewallZeroHour by First Contact Entertainment.
The studio is also in the process of developing its next VR title, Polaris: Off-World Combat, another first-person shooter (FPS) with team-based 4v4 gameplay, this time with a sci-fi aesthetic. If you have always wanted to pick up Firewall : Berthoud, but haven’t gotten around to it yet or more realistically, its January and everyone is broke, then fret not because this weekend youcanplay a trial of the VR hit as long as you have an active subscription to PS Plus.
Gameplay is slow-paced and methodical, similar to non-VR game, Rainbow Six Siege, or PC VR-exclusive shooter, Onward. There are no respawns during matches and the objectives are more complex than simply “kill the other team” to encourage teamwork and strategy.
The objectives for the Attacking team to locate and steal sensitive information by hacking a firewall and then retrieving intel off of a laptop inside the level. Once you’re dead, you’re out until the next match and can only watch security cameras to give your team advice.
The only way of playing the Contracts game mode will be through competitive 4v4 online multiplayer, so an active community will be very important. As explained above, there will be a single player option in Firewall : Berthoud, but it’s just one of the “Training” modes that is basically focused on the same objectives as Contracts multiplayer.
Even the single player Training mode requires an internet connection to play. Visually each of them look different and have their own personal background stories informing their voice over style, name, and abilities.
Every contractor has a single special ability unlocked from the beginning of the game, such as faster reloading for certain types of weapons. As you continue to play as a Contractor and earn XP, you’ll unlock a second ability slot and additional weapon customization options for your loadout.
So even if you play the same map over and over, it will yield a slightly different experience for both the Attacking and Defending team. When you select a Contractor in Firewall : Berthoud, you will also pick a loadout that is catered toward a specific play style.
We don’t have a full list of weapons yet, but from what we’ve seen everything you expect from assault rifles and handguns to shotguns and grenades are all represented. While using this peripheral, you move your character with the analog sticks on the controller itself and physically aim and shoot your gun with the plastic rifle.
It works similarly to the game pad support in Far point, in which you must physically aim and point the controller as if it were your gun. The main reason for this is that the lack of an analog stick on the PS Move controllers make it difficult to map all the buttons and actions you need during a game.
There is a PS Aim Controller bundle for sale if you don’t have the gun peripheral yet and want to use it when playing Firewall. If you want to pre-order the physical version of the game, toucan do that from Target, GameS top, and Best Buy.
