There is a big PR push ahead of the release of the new Terminator movie. In a couple of weeks, PlayStation 4 owners will be able to fight as a T-800 in Mortal Kombat 11. Meanwhile, Xbox One owners are able to play as Sarah Connor and a T-800 in the latest Gears of War. It seems that the Terminators aren’t content with just appearing in other people’s games, though. This might explain why Reef Entertainment has announced that Terminator: Resistance will be launching later this year on PC and consoles.
Like the new movie, this game is ignoring Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Salvation, and Terminator: Genisys. Instead, and wisely may we add, this game just takes its inspiration and timeline from the first two movies. This first-person shooter takes place in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, 30 years after Judgement Day (the date when the machines take over). There seems to be some level of freedom in how you proceed and the ability to level up your character. Of course, the main focus is taking out the machine menace and just surviving in general.
Terminator: Resistance is due to launch in Europe and Australia on 15th November while North American gamers will have to wait until 3rd December. You can check out the trailer for the game below along with the official description –
Terminator: Resistance is an officially licensed, first-person shooter set during the ‘Future War’ scenario that was only glimpsed at in the iconic films from James Cameron, ‘THE TERMINATOR’ and ‘T2: JUDGEMENT DAY’.
This story takes place in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, nearly 30 years after Judgement Day, and stars a brand new hero in the Terminator universe, Jacob Rivers, a soldier in the Resistance led by John Connor. Despite the fact that Jacob is just a lowly private, he’ll soon discover that he’s been specifically targeted by the latest threat from Skynet and marked for termination!
