Sony’s final PlayStation Plus games of 2019 are available to download, thanks to a new PS Store update.
As many subscribers will already know, two games are offered each month as part of the ongoing PS Plus program.
But some months, Sony decides to offer a few other rewards to those who sign up to its multiplayer membership plans.
And in December, gamers can enjoy a new bonus that has only just been made available.
That’s because gamers with a PlayStation VR headset can now download and play Firewall Zero Hour.
This is only available to those fans with an ongoing PlayStation Plus subscription for a short period.
The deal went live earlier this week and is set to end on Monday, December 9, 2019.
Until that time, gamers can try out everything that Firewall Zero Hour has to offer.
And the good news is that there is still plenty of time to download the game, which required over 10GB of space.
“The Limited Free Trial will be available on PlayStation Store from 3rd December (4pm GMT / 5pm CET) to 9th December (4pm GMT / 5pm CET),” a message from Sony confirms.
“Players can squad up and dive straight into battle—testing out the latest maps, weapons, and equipment. Complete missions, earn rewards, and level up with Double XP!”
For those that don’t know, Firewall Zero Hour is a PSVR exclusive from developers from First Contact Entertainment.
The game has received a steady stream of positive reviews from fans following its launch last year.
“In Firewall Zero Hour, you’ll play as a mercenary Contractor, hired by an anonymous handler to either protect or obtain highly sensitive information found on a laptop hidden in controversial locations across the globe,” the official game description explains.
“You’re hired as part of a team of four Contractors, who must attack or defend against another team of four Contractors.
“Whether playing on the attacking team or defending team, communication with your teammates is key to surviving in this world of intense firefights and unpredictable outcomes.
“You’ll strategize with your teammates, make quick tactical choices and use an arsenal of equipment to successfully complete your Contracts. Every time you fulfil a Contract, you get paid in Crypto, which you can use to customize your Contractors.”
Limited to those who can play Virtual Reality games, this new PS Plus won’t be for everyone but it is nice to see a bit more VR support from Sony.
So far there have been no changes made to how PlayStation Plus, following the removal of PS Vita and PS3 games.
With the launch of the PS5, fans are expecting to hear more about what is coming next for the program and how it will be tweaked for the arrival of next-gen tech.
For now, this limited PSVR offering is what fans can expect from Sony heading into 2020 and a new year of PS Plus free games.
Titanfall 2 is undoubtedly the pick of the bunch on PlayStation Plus this month, earning a hugely impressive 89% rating on Metacritic.
The Titanfall sequel features the same chaotic multiplayer action as the original, as well as a surprisingly entertaining campaign mode from the makers of Apex Legends.
It edges out Firewall Zero Hour by being a permanent game to pick up, although more trials are expected to arrive in the near future.
