Damoun Shabestari here, Game Director of First Contact Entertainment. It’s been a long road to launch day, but it’s finally here! We’re extremely excited that you can play Firewall Zero Hour — exclusively on PS VR — starting today!
Firewall Zero Hour takes place in a world where information is power and the leak of sensitive data can be used to influence world leaders, topple governments, and destabilize entire nations. One laptop full of data, falling into certain hands, can change the course of history.
In Firewall Zero Hour, you’ll play as a mercenary Contractor, hired by an anonymous handler to either protect or obtain highly sensitive information found on a laptop hidden in controversial locations across the globe*. You’re hired as part of a team of four Contractors, who must attack or defend against another team of four Contractors. Whether playing on the attacking team or defending team, communication with your teammates is key to surviving in this world of intense firefights and unpredictable outcomes**.
You’ll strategize with your teammates, make quick tactical choices and use an arsenal of equipment to successfully complete your Contracts. Every time you fulfill a Contract, you get paid in Crypto, which you can use to customize your Contractors.
To sum it up, we made Firewall Zero Hour to be the tactical 4v4 multiplayer FPS that we always dreamed of playing in VR. It’s been a labor of love for our studio full of FPS fanatics :-)
All in all, we’re beyond excited to hear the PlayStation VR community’s feedback, and eager to see all the gameplay styles, strategies, and tactics you come up with!
You might be wondering what’s next for Firewall Zero Hour. While there is a vast number of things to unlock, levels to achieve, and unpredictable gameplay to be had in the game starting today, we are also focused on supporting the game post-launch with additional content.
But for now, get ready for more how-to’s from the studio, regarding tips & tricks for loadouts, progression, customization, and advanced techniques. And don’t forget join the Firewall Zero Hour PSN community to meet other Contractors eager to squad up.
See you in the game, Contractors!
