Firewall Zero Hour’s tenth season goes live today

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Hi everyone! First Contact Entertainment here, and we’re proud to announce that Firewall Zero Hour Operation: X, our final planned season of Firewall Zero Hour*, is live today.

Just because no additional seasons are currently in the works doesn’t mean the end is near: you’ll still be able to enjoy the PlayStation VR**-exclusive tactical team-based multiplayer fun of Firewall Zero Hour beyond the season’s wrap.

Now let’s take a look at some of the awesome content coming to you in Firewall Zero Hour Operation: X.

A fresh look at some fan favorites

This time around we handpicked some of our most-used items and switched up the color schemes to offer some fun new ways to customize your loadout. There are gold and chrome grips, blue and yellow insta-smokes, and a number of new variations on fan favorite facepaints. Our personal favorite addition this season is the new Unicorn-themed crossbow.

Grab hold of the Legendary Grim Reaper

For Operation: X we decided to upgrade the Reaper with some very tasteful gold accents that you’re going to love. This will be available to purchase (for 250,000 Crypto) for Operation X: Op Pass*** holders who complete all Free, Premium and Bonus Missions in Operation: X (a total of 24 Missions).

Another chance to earn classic Legendary Weapons

In honor of our tenth and final planned season, we’re bringing back legendary weapons from the first six seasons of Firewall Zero Hour. If you weren’t able to earn these the first time around, now’s your chance to grab Okoro’s Volkov, Jag’s Stalker, Meiko’s ZS, Saul’s CQB, Luna’s HZU, and Shadow’s Manta Ray. They will also remain available after the season ends, so you’ll have plenty of time to stack up the 250,000 crypto needed to purchase each weapon.

Reminder: Op Pass & Hack Key Bundles

The Operation: X Op Pass*** allows players access to 16 additional Mission cosmetic Rewards, plus the ability to unlock the Legendary Weapon Skin, the Gold Reaper after completion of all 24 Missions this season. Hack Keys can be used to instantly complete any Operational Mission and receive its cosmetic Reward — a great option for players who don’t have as much time to play as they would like. If you have any Hack Keys left over from last season (Operation: Rogue Tide), you can use them on Missions this season (Operation: X). As a reminder, since this is our final planned season, it is important to use your hack keys before it concludes.

  • Firewall Zero Hour – Operation: X Op Pass + 5 Hack Keys ($7.99 USD / €7.99)
  • Firewall Zero Hour – Operation: X Op Pass + 1 Hack Keys ($3.99 USD / €3.99)
  • Firewall Zero Hour – 5 Hack Keys Pack ($4.99 USD / €4.99)

We can’t believe it’s almost been four years since the launch of Firewall Zero Hour, and we owe everything to you

Bungie’s Destiny historian prepares you for Destiny 2’s Season of the Haunted, live now

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Today marks the beginning of Season of the Haunted, a new chapter in the ongoing story of Destiny 2. New players and veteran Guardians alike are heeding the call as a returning threat has suddenly emerged in our galaxy. It is in this new Season that we find references to tragic conspiracies, relatable familial strife, and the unwavering desire—no, the need—to party like it’s the end of the universe. 

These references are all chapters in a story that began long before our Guardians and will hopefully survive long after their Light fades away. As we discover characters, locations, and items, new parts of that story click into place like space-magic puzzle pieces. And wouldn’t you know, there’s someone at Bungie dedicated to solving puzzles. 

We sat down to discuss some of the elements present in Season of the Haunted, where this tale began, and how the rift that formed long ago between an iconic emperor and his daughter brought the ghosts of the past to humanity’s doorstep. 

Without further ado, I present Bungie’s Destiny historian, Ashley Flanagan. 

Legendary Lore: An Emperor Adrift 

Richard Barrick: Thank you so much for spending this time with us today. Let’s start off with who you are and how you got here. 

Ashley Flanagan: My name’s Ash. I’m Bungie’s Destiny historian. This is not the first time I’ve been a historian of sorts, although not always for video games. I have a masters in Roman history and I used to teach that as an adjunct professor for a couple years—which is super relevant to the Cabal stuff we’re going to talk about today. I got into games about ten years ago when some friends of mine started working on an indie video game and asked me if I wanted to do some writing for it. 

Having a background in real-world history feels relevant to that because I’m pretty good at sifting through information and identifying what’s a reliable source. An unusual thing about Destiny is that a lot of our lore is filtered through characters who can be unreliable narrators—I mean, are you going to take what Savathûn says at face value? 

Well, it sounds like you’re the perfect person to talk to about Season of the Haunted—there are two elements to the Season that become much cooler when you know more about them, Calus and his massive planet-devouring ship, the Leviathan. Let’s start with Calus; who is he? 

Calus is the former emperor of the Cabal. Most of the Cabal players run into are in the military, so it’s easy to think of all of Cabal culture as being super militaristic. But Calus is different in that he’s a bit of a hedonist. He thinks that the military is a means to an end, and that end is having a good time all the time. Everyone else can have a good time too (as long as they don’t get in his way). Because of this, by most accounts Calus was a pretty popular emperor.

But this also led to him making enemies in the military. His reign came to an end when Caiatl (his daughter) and a bunch of his closest confidants conspired to depose him in an event known as the Midnight Coup. 

To hear Calus tell it, their one big mistake was that he was too popular to kill. So, the solution they came up with was to put him on a ship, disable the navigation system, and send it into the depths of space.

So, Calus was exiled and drifted through the stars on the Leviathan until one day when he looked out into the void and had a profound experience w

How Hogwarts Legacy taps PS5 features to make gameplay feel magical

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

With Hogwarts Legacy, we wanted to immerse you in the wizarding world like never before. Wand in hand, nothing is more important at Avalanche Software than making sure players feel like they are living in this world. PlayStation 5 allows us to take that immersion further as you build a legacy of your own.

How Hogwarts Legacy taps PS5 features to make gameplay feel magical

Connect With Your Wand

A witch or wizard should never be without their wand, and the PlayStation 5’s DualSense wireless controller becomes an extension of your wand in Hogwarts Legacy. With so many spells at your disposal, the adaptive triggers allow for more flexibility in combat. You’ll feel the magical resistance at your fingertips through every spell, whether firing off a basic cast or summoning the strength for a more powerful charm.  Spells will feel unique when you cast them, thanks to haptic feedback providing a direct connection between the DualSense controller and your wand. We’ve specifically isolated these effects to the right side of the controller to let the DualSense become an extension of the wand you hold in the game. And when you deflect a spell with Protego, you’ll feel the sizzling of the magic being reflected and absorbed by the Shield Charm.

Adaptive triggers and haptic feedback aren’t just limited to spellcasting and wand work, however. The DualSense controller lets you feel a variety of events throughout the world, whether it’s crushing ingredients with a mortar and pestle in Potions class, feeling the screech of a Mandrake seedling, or flying through the skies on a broom or a hippogriff. The DualSense is your connection to the magic on PS5.

We’ve also tapped into the DualSense controller’s light to give you a unique bit of personalization. When not flashing along with spells being cast or damage bein
