Have you wanted a solid Terminator first person shooter? Well hopefully we’re getting close to that reality. Today Terminator: Resistance was announced, and it may be exactly what you’re looking for.
The announcement trailer shows that the game will take place in Los Angeles in the year 2028, which is 31 years after the apocalyptic Judgement Day. You play a Jacob Rivers, a man who has, for some unknown reason, been specifically marked for termination by Skynet. It’s up to him to try and figure out why and stop Skynet in the process. Following that, the trailer showcases a good chunk of running around, shooting at robots, and a dude getting hit by a truck. Terminator: Resistance is being developed by Teyon, who last stepped into movie games with on-rails shooter Rambo: The Video Game. At least this one is a full first person shooter rather than on-rails.
Its been a while since we’ve seen a full Terminator video game. Usually he’s busy guest starring in other people’s games. For example, you can play as both Sarah Conner and a T-800 Endoskeleton in Gears 5. Recently, Mortal Kombat 11 announced that a T-800 Terminator will be one of the guest characters you can get in the Season Pass. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will also be getting Terminator content of some kind, and earlier this year multiplayer game Deathgarden: Bloodharvest put out a T-800 skin for one of its characters. If you want to go back a few years, a T-800 was also playable back in WWE 2k16, and was even mocapped by Arnold himself.
Terminator: Resistance will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 15th.
