We haven’t received any games recently that happened to be in real-time, that are top-down shooters and that incorporates physics while taking place in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, where players assume the role of special forces unit attempting to stop terrorists. Well, FragOut Studio seeks to bring the above to PC under the title of Thunder Tier One, which recently received a new update.
If you don’t know what Thunder Tier One is, or what the indie developers FragOut Studio seeks to bring gamers, the official description sits below.
“Thunder Tier One is a top-down tactical shooter that let’s you play as tier one operator across various scenarios located all around the globe. Set in late 80s/early 90s it allows you to combine your leadership and tactical skills and contemporary equipment into an efficient war machine.”
The most recent update brings shotguns to Thunder Tier One, although the game isn’t out yet for gamers to play, we do learn that they can take down enemies very quickly under the right circumstances. An update video demonstrations showing the newly implemented shotgun can be seen below thanks to the devs Twitter page.

The top-down shooter may be zoomed out, but that does not stop the devs from polishing the game so that everything looks nice and proper. Characters will adjust to uneven terrain and other objects when walking, running or standing/crouching. This animation blend can be seen below.

Looking over to Thunder Tier One’s Steam Early Access page we see models of helicopters. You can check out two images showing them in their concept stage.
If you want to help the devs out and get an early taste of the game to send in feedback and other vital information regarding the game’s growth, the devs have this to say to you:
“You are more than welcome to join our discord community and wait for next batch of pre-alpha keys, we will be happy to let you in and get to know what do you think of our gameplay.”
“Pre-alpha tests will primairly focus on gathering feedback on the game mechanics, features and gameplay. So for now, just hop in and take down as many bad guys as you can or try the simple round-based team deathmatch mode.”
Set to come out sometime this year for PC via Steam Early Access, for more information regarding Thunder Tier One, the Pre-Alpha and other news and information you can head on over to thunderthegame.eu.
