We already told you that First Contact’s Firewall: Zero Hour was coming “very soon“, making us think we might see it in the next few months. Perhaps, though, it might be even closer than that.
During a PlayStation Livestream at last week’s E3 event, First Contact’s Adam Orth noted that the multiplayer shooter would be arriving “very, very, very, very, very soon”. That’s five verys (veries?). That has us thinking it might be July or early August; Orth also said that the game was “really close” to being finished and that the studio was firing on all engines right now.
“We’ve got some news soon,” studio Co-Founder and President Hess Barber added.
Elsewhere in the session, we get a good look at a new map for the game, and there are some interesting little info drops about tactics, like players using downed enemies as bait and setting traps with C4.
Well, if you couldn’t tell, we’ll probably be playing Firewall in the very near future. That excites us; we’ve loved what we’ve seen of this 4 vs 4 tactical shooter so far, reminding us of the Rainbow Six games. It makes excellent use of Sony’s PSVR Aim Controller to really root you in the experience (though can be played without it, too).
