The first-person shooter genre has been one of the most prominent ones of the medium, and it continues to grow at a rapid pace with each passing year. While there are a ton of sub-genres such as arena shooters, survival horror, and what have you within the first-person-shooter umbrella, the military shooter has remained the most popular one for the longest of time.
However, as the likes of Battlefield have continued to water down their gameplay mechanics to appeal to the biggest demographic possible – a void for more realistic military shooters has emerged. The last few years have seen games such as the likes of Hell Let Loose and Escape from Tarkov blow up in popularity for that very reason. Developer Zero Hour Interactive is also aiming to enter the same market with its upcoming tactical first-person shooter BURNING LANDS.
