Press release


The top-down tactical shooter is available to pre-order

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - 16 NOVEMBER , 2021 - KRAFTON, Inc. has announced that Thunder Tier One, the highly realistic, top-down tactical shooter game, will be fully accessible to modding from launch on Tuesday 7 December 2021. KRAFTON is happy to support the Thunder Tier One task force in both bringing a new title to the top-down shooter genre, and in introducing new experiences to fans. The modding trailer is now available to watch here.

The game was created by a small group of developers who wanted to share their passion for modding through Thunder Tier One. Described by the developers as “a playground for modding”, all the rules and settings can be altered or substituted for new ones - allowing fans to add and modify missions, weapons, AI behaviour, equipment and everything else in-between. To create mods for Thunder Tier One, players need to install the Thunder Tier One Modding Tool from Epic Launcher. Mods can be published directly to the Steam Workshop through the modding tool and subscribed to in-game.

The game can be pre-ordered on Steam, and will retail at €19.99. As an added bonus for fans, those who order the game early will receive an exclusive diorama lobby scene.

In early 2020, Smolewski pitched the game to KRAFTON, Inc. who recognised its potential and decided to collaborate with the team to help introduce Thunder Tier One to a wider audience. The original team is now working under the KRAFTON, Inc. umbrella.
