Sony Makes PS4 Exclusive Game Free, This Weekend Only

Zero Hour is free all weekend.

49 Comments

Sony has announced it's setting one of PlayStation 4's big PSVR exclusive games free this weekend. Firewall Zero Hour will be free for PS Plus members from June 28 through July 1 on PS4. In addition, all players will receive double XP for the duration of the free-play weekend, and your progress will carry over should you decide to purchase the game.

The PS4 game launched in August 2018 to a positive reception. The tactical shooter is multiplayer-based, pitting squads of four against each other. It ordinarily costs US $40 / £25 / AU $40--though it is currently discounted to £16 / AU $25 if you want to own it permanently (in the US, it remains $40). If you're looking to download it, it's a separate entry on PSN from the standard version of the game--you can find it here on the PlayStation Store.

Firewall has also received a number of updates in the past few months, from new missions and rewards to a completely revamped user interface. Two new maps have also been released for free just recently. We said the game "showed that tactical multiplayer FPS games can work on PSVR" in our 2018 VR gaming review.

The free PS Plus games for July 2019 have also been announced. The PS4 games available at no extra cost for PlayStation Plus members next month will be PES 2019 and Horizon Chase Turbo.

£20 is next to nothing to pay for this amazing team shooter, it's worth getting a PSVR and aim controller for this game alone. If you dont want to find out then you are missing out.

is this freebie a response to the backlash of july's ps+ offerings? i suspect it is, but its not like it will make things better. sony needs to get its shit together with ps+ or it is going to lose subscribers. ever since ps/vita support was cut, the value has diminished greatly and the ps4 selections have generally gotten worse.

I kept checking and it's really not. Either it hasn't started or you have to look up something else for the free weekend, which I guess it might be rather than a giveaway. I do have PS+.

It isn't "free" if it's behind a paywall like the PS+ Subscription.

@bigbluebustn: the problem is what about the people that dont pay ps+ or play online?

Its not free then is it?

Its false advertising, or clever at best, you still PAY TO USE A SERVICE this comes with it, so its NOT FREE is it?

@itchyflop: those people arent a factor, clearly this doesnt apply to those people lol. the games are free for ps plus subscribers, its that simple. and no its not trolling its called rational thinking, if im paying for multiplayer how are the games not a free bonus??? the amount of games i get for 60 dollars a year amounts to hundreds of dollars even thousands some years in savings. you dont see them as free, millions of people other than you dont agree

@bigbluebustn: aha if you say so!!

If your paying to play online, a service that should be free, like PC (excluding pay to play like warcraft, before you get anal) then more fool you.

You are paying for the "ps home store" nothing else, you've already payed £50 for the software, probably more from the ps digital store because its inflated (which your already paying £40 a year for subscription), your line fee which i can only assume is £20 (it is in uk) from a provider.

And you assume everyone is "going to play online anyway", maybe some people arn't or dont want to or are smart enough not to pay for it !!

And seriously your happy with all the "free bonus" games your getting a year, i know "millions" of people would DISagree with you there.

Its still not "free" its an extra perk !!!

Keep rational

@subclass037: i hate they abandoned 3d yet stuck with this (for now). Absolutely zero interest in using anything besides a controller or mouse/keyboard to play games (basically anything with motion control is a NO for me).

@subclass037: Beat Saber, Astrobot and Tetris Effect were three of the highest reviewed games last year. I still play quite a bit of Skyrim VR, Wipeout HD, and Driveclub VR as well. Also I'm still looking forward to playing Trover Saves the Universe, Borderlands 2 VR, and Wolfenstein Cyberpilot off the top of my head.

So yea, it's definetely still a thing. I'm excited that the PS5 is supporting it. It's only going to get better and it's already pretty amazing.

@ButDuuude: Thumper is great too. I liked Rez on Dreamcast so I'm hoping there will be a sale. I don't like paying more than $20 for a digital copy but I might crack at some point.

@mindphyx77822: 4.2 millions, not 1.5 millions. And this is a console addon, which is probably highest selling addon of all time. Previously addons like Sega CD, 32x, etc have all failed. Sony even said PSVR will be supported on PS5.

@mindphyx77822: Barely sold 1.5 out of 100 million? Where are you getting your numbers? I see about 4.2 out of 95 million. 4.2 million isn't bad for new, expensive technology that's still in the early adopter phase. That's also not including the sales of Oculus, Vive, Cardboard, and Nintendo's headset. Sales will continue to grow as prices come down, the quality of the headsets goes up, and the amount of must have games come out.

I actually really admire Sony’s commitment to VR.

Hopefully the next generation of PSVR will be The One.

@twztid13: but its not on sony to produce 3d content for tvs, they created the tv the rest is on content providers. yes sony is a content provider of sorts but to rank on them because theres no 3d content from any company not just sony is alittle childish. sony creates mp3 players too, should we get mad they dont release a sony band album?
