First Contact Entertainment announced that its highly-anticipated sequel to the Firewall Zero Hour game is releasing next month. Firewall Ultra will launch exclusively on PlayStation VR2 on 24 August and you can pre-order the game starting today.
For those who aren’t familiar with the series, Firewall Ultra is a hardcore PvP (and a bit of PvE) shooter where players work in teams to tactically take down the opposing team and complete a series of objectives.

The original game was praised for its intense gunplay and immersive first-person VR shooting. Fans of the series have been eagerly waiting for the sequel and now they can rest easy knowing it will be in their hands soon.
You can actually pre-order the game starting today. The Firewall Ultra Digital Deluxe Edition costs R1.199 but comes with early unlocks of four contractors, outfits, weapon skins and the Operation Pass which will include more content later down the line.
You can also purchase the Firewall Ultra Standard Edition for R719. It contains just the base game. There’s no word yet whether or not you can upgrade to the Deluxe Edition at a later date. Both versions come with a pre-order bonus of the Reaper X75 Legendary Weapon.
Over on the PlayStation Blog, First Contact Entertainment revealed some gameplay details for Firewall Ultra. The studio says that post-game content is a big focus for the game. So players can expect new weapons, contractors, maps, additional game modes and more.
The studio has also hinted that it will add manual reloading to the game. This is a controversial topic after it was revealed that Firewall Ultra would not feature manual reloading – something which made the first game even better.
We’ve also overhauled the game’s internal infrastructure with an immersive social lobby area and shooting range in our Safehouse between game sessions, dedicated servers to help minimize dropped network connections, and a new best-of-three round-based player-versus-player (PvP) format that will have you spending less time waiting and more time playing.
Firewall Ultra has also been built on Unreal Engine 5 so it also looks incredible. The studio says the game has been brought to life thanks to the advanced render techniques in the engine. Of course, the game will also take full advantage of the PS VR2 tech including the 4K HDR displays, Sense Controllers, eye tracking and other features.
