PSVR 2 revives Firewall for a more ambitious sequel
Tactical multiplayer shooter Firewall Ultra is coming to PSVR 2, following the PSVR version of Firewall Zero Hour four years ago.
Developer First Contact Entertainment in PlayStation Blog (opens in new tab)Five years after the previous title, Firewall Ultra promises to develop contractors, locations and maps from scratch while adding its own content.
“Since PS VR2 offers a higher level of visual fidelity with 4K HDR, we have completely remastered all character models,” said community manager Frank Marm. “The map has also been completely overhauled, with new areas and new textures. There will also be new locations and contractors, but it’s not a firewall game without weapons and gear, and it also features a deeper level of customization. .”
First Contact Entertainment conspicuously avoids the term sequel In its announcement, it called it “the next evolution in the firewall family,” which may reflect the mix of old and new here. That said, it does read like a sequel.
In addition to visual upgrades, Firewall Ultra will make some systematic additions to Zero Hour’s formula. It offers dedicated servers for beginners, as well as best-of-three PvP matches that will go hand-in-hand with “a whole new PvE experience.”
Firewall Ultra also demonstrates how to use some of the PSVR 2’s feature set. For example, the headset’s eye-tracking capabilities allow players to swap weapons and turn on HUD markers with just a glance. Hopefully it looks and feels as smooth as it sounds on paper. The trailer also mentions finger touch detection, center point rendering (an eye-tracking trick designed to prioritize details of what you’re viewing), haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and 110-degree FOV.
Firewall Ultra is the latest addition to the PSVR 2 arsenal, and like many other confirmed games, it doesn’t yet have a firm release date. PSVR 2 itself will arrive in “early 2023” As Sony confirmed last month.
