There are gamers who like to play fantasy or Sci-Fi games. But when it comes to military games, most of us are die-hard fans of this genre. I clearly remember when I started playing PC games, but my favourite one was Project IGI. Now as time passed by, new games started to pop up in the gaming world that stared to bring out more intense gaming action as well as better graphics and stories and many more.
Call of Duty Series
Call of Duty Series is the first one of kind game, that sets its first environment on World War II. The series started with the background of WW II and slowly developing itself to modern-day warfare.

The entire series is really worthwhile for those who want to enjoy the military warfare gaming experience. It will give you an immersive gameplay experience that involves brutal combat situations along with emotional stories surrounding the characters of the games.
Call of Duty also offers online multiplayer game-play and it has gained significant popularity over time. There are some subtitles of Call of Duty series which are can not be termed as military warfare game but quite relates to the same and we suggest those as well. Currently, we have COD: Warzone as the first Battle Royale COD game which hosts 100 players at the same time and features solo, duo and quad modes to play with your friends.
Battlefield is another such gaming title, that let us have the taste of military FPS experience with its vivid gaming dynamics and story. The story of Battlefield started in the year with Microsoft Windows and OS X with Battlefield 1942, and since then, this game has given us some wonderful titles to play with.
Since its first release back in the year 2002, Battlefiled gradually took us to modern-day warfare and Battlefield 2 which was released in 2005, became a huge success and the same followed my multiple new releases that became well developed in terms of graphics, gaming dynamics and a lot more.
It also supports an online multiplayer option that is favoured by gamers across the globe. However, Battlefield Hardline is also one of the parts that were released, but in this part, the game revolves around cops and robbers instead of regular Battlefield story.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Series
Sniper Ghost Warrior Serie initially received a set back upon its initial release back in the year 2008 due to negative reviews but they released a sequel in 2010 which regained back its popularity. The game is doesn’t directly relates to military warfare but it is a game based on tactical military operation and has some breathtaking graphics and gaming dynamics.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 released in the year 2013 and it is a tactical shooter video game developed and published by City Interactive and can also be termed as a sequel of its earlier release but with more advanced dynamics. The last released part is the Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts, that got released last year and continues the same vivid gameplay, and one more part is in development and will be released in the coming days ahead.
This particular title can not be termed as a brutal military warfare game but instead, it is a military tactical shooter game that one can really enjoy while playing.
Hell Let Loose
Another game that sets its plot during the time of WW II, Hell Let Loose takes you to the fight in the most iconic battles of the Western Front, including Carentan, Omaha Beach, Foy, and other locations. It features more than 9 sweeping maps modelled on real reconnaissance images and satellite data.
Unlike the COD or Battlefield games, it is not very intense all the time as you have to strategize and formulate plans along with your squad members to capture the enemy headquarters or to advance.
Further, the entire battlefield is divided up into large capture sectors that allow for emergent and constantly unique gameplay that pits two forces of fifty players in a fight to the death across fields, bridges, forests, and towns on an ever-evolving front line. When a sector is captured, it will generate one of three resources for your team, creating a complex meta-game that will help your team to get an upper hand in the battle.
It is currently available in early access but during this small window, it was able to gain quite a popularity. If you are willing to have some PVP action that is set in the background of WWII, then this game will be the perfect option for you.
