Sony hasn’t delved too deeply into the world of service games, but one of its biggest hits in the arena has been Firewall Zero Hour. The tactical first-person shooter has a very dedicated fanbase, and has been growing regularly since launching a few years ago. Unsurprisingly, then, it’ll be getting some improvements when you play on PlayStation 5.
In addition to the obligatory faster loading times, you’ll also get better visual fidelity. First Contact Entertainment explains that because the title is able to run at a higher base resolution on Sony’s next-gen console, the image is cleaner when super-sampled on the existing PlayStation VR headset. This is the second virtual reality game to get a meaningful upgrade through backwards compatibility, with Blood & Truth also getting boosted on the system.

I sold my PSVR but kept the games as i thought a new (Wireless hopefully) headset would come out next year but that doesn’t sound the case.
Awesome. I just wished Driveclub Vr could be patched up too. The low res background are just killing the experience imo. Please Sony. 🙏🙏
I don’t have PSVR (with CFS, I imagine it’ll make me feel deeply unwell very quickly), but the tech nerd in me finds this fascinating. Good for all the PSVR owners out there.
Did anyone in the UK get an update on the PSVR adapter for PS5?I have some concerns about my request as the confirmation email reads “We will contact you again about the status of your request. If granted, shipments are expected to begin around mid-November 2020.“ but so far, no updates.
@KPraj thanks. Now I know that am not alone in this situation but I really don’t get why they haven’t given the adapters to retailers it’d have been much easier
I absolutely love firewall. I really need to get back into it. I bought the latest season but haven’t given it a try. I have been too busy with legends
@madcow78I’m not in the UK, but the US. Exact same processes for me, but it showed up two days ago on my doorstep. FedEx sent me a message because I monitor my address, but if not for that it would have been unannounced.
Fantastic news, all PSVR games should benefit from this. Astro Bot rescue mission, Moss, Farpoint, I could go on.
VR Multiplayer is the future of gaming. Need more comfortable VR headsets for all day use.
