Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Hi all! Damoun Shabestari (aka Shabs) here, game director at First Contact Entertainment — developers behind Firewall Zero Hour*, the team-based multiplayer shooter exclusive to PlayStation VR**.

Since launching nearly three years ago, we have continued to offer our players new content in the form of seasonal operations. I am excited to announce that the seventh season of Firewall Zero Hour will be kicking off July 13, with Operation: Rubicon.

While there won’t be new maps or contractors featured this season, there are a wide variety of missions for you to complete & fantastic rewards for you to earn, so let’s take a look at some of the awesome content coming tomorrow with Operation: Rubicon.

New cosmetic rewards

There are over 24 new cosmetic rewards available this season. Upon completion of Missions, a variety of different trinkets, face paints, and camo skins can be equipped by players. We have added in a new blue smoke grenade variant which you’ll be able to earn through missions as well. In addition to Free Mission Rewards, Rubicon Op Pass*** holders have access to Premium and Bonus Mission Rewards.

New Legendary Weapon

The Legendary Weapon Skin of Operation: Rubicon is the Gilded Sten — available to Rubicon Op Pass holders who complete all Free, Premium and Bonus Missions in Operation: Rubicon (a total of 24 Missions) and redeemed for 250,000 Crypto.

Reminder: Op Pass and Hack Key bundles

The Rubicon Op Pass*** allows players access to 16 additional Mission cosmetic Rewards, plus the ability to unlock the Legendary Weapon Skin, the Gilded Sten 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: CloudStrike), you can use them on Missions this season (Operation: Rubicon).

Genshin Impact Version 2.0: All about Inazuma

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Hello, Travelers! On behalf of the entire Genshin Impact team, we’re very pleased to share with you that Inazuma, the much-anticipated third city of the seven major cities, will finally arrive with the upcoming Version 2.0 The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia on July 21.

Today, for the first time, we’re going to take you on a short tour of the unique cultural landscapes of this major city completely surrounded by the ocean, and the beings that inhabit it. Meanwhile, we’d also like to share some latest features and supports added to PlayStation, including the cross-save function among PlayStation, PC, and mobile.

The Nation That Seeks “Eternity”

While Mondstadt believes in freedom and Liyue honors contracts, Inazuma and its ruler, Raiden Shogun, the Electro Archon, pursues eternity. But what makes the Archon with the power of the fleeting lightning seek eternity? As the story unfolds, this will be a theme that runs through your adventure in Inazuma.

In contrast to her Almighty Shogun’s pursuit of eternity, Inazuma is a place where you can find ephemeral beauty everywhere. Unlike the clear sunny days in Mondstadt and Liyue, the weather in Inazuma changes quickly and drastically, tinting the landscapes with a strong sea breeze, flickering light and shadow, and raging thunderstorms in the blink of an eye.

The Inazuma area consists of six main islands and a series of islets scattered across the ocean, each with a unique landscape and history. You may visit the Grand Narukami Shrine and Sacred Sakura on the mountain of Narukami Island, or admire the blooming cherry blossoms and the magnificent Tenshukaku where the Shogun resides at in Inazuma City. You may also witness the giant skeleton and the palpable aura of the Tatarigami at Yashiori Island where the Raiden Shogun battled a great serpent, or traverse the desolate coastline where lies the ruins of war at Tatarasuna. You may also find yourself getting lost in the area shrouded in thunderstorms, or stumble into huge mysterious underground areas and ruins hidden beneath the sea surface.

With Version 2.0, we’re only releasing three of the six main islands of Inazuma. There are many more landmarks and locations with distinct scenery, stories, secrets, and their respective connections to the history of Inazuma and the Electro Archon waiting for the Trav
