If you’re not watching the PlayStation Experience 2017, then you might have missed this announcement from First Contact Entertainment. They’re bringing Firewall Zero Hour, a team-based, tactical multiplayer FPS exclusively to PlayStation VR in 2018.
Two teams of mercenaries will face off in 4 vs 4 matches. As attackers, your goal will be to bypass firewall access points, locate the laptop and initiate the hack. Your anonymous contract holder will provide additional objectives and critical mission information along the way. The team hired to defend the sensitive information has their own anonymous contract holder with deep pockets, and won’t go down without a fight.
Adam Orth, Creative Strategist at First Contact Entertainment had this to say regarding the matches, over at the PlayStation Blog:
Each team accomplishes these objectives through highly-coordinated teamwork with an arsenal of modern weapons and offensive/defensive equipment to help their team and hinder the other.
Players are rewarded in-game with cryptocurrency and experience points upon the successful completion of contracts/matches and can use those currencies to upgrade contractors, weapons, equipment, load-outs and cosmetic customization.
Firewall Zero Hour will support both the Dualshock 4 and the PlayStation Aim controller when it releases exclusively for the PSVR in 2018. However, if you can make it to the PlayStation Experience this weekend, you can treat yourself to a fully playable 4 vs 4 demo on the show floor. If you can’t make the trip, stay tuned right here for more information as we get it.
