‘Terminator: Resistance’ Launches This Fall
- From the makers of Rambo: The Videogame.
- Set 30 years after Judgement Day nuclear event.
- Looks better than Terminator: Dark Fate.
To say the Terminator franchise has lost its way would be a bit of an understatement, as both movies and game tie-ins have failed to wow audiences at large after the incredible success of the first two films. With Terminator: Dark Fate set to release on November 1, 2019, it’s that time again for the franchise to have another Terminator video game tie-in.
Terminator: Resistance is an upcoming first-person shooter from the development team Teyon. If that name isn’t familiar, I want you to think back to 2014 to Rambo: The Videogame. Yes, it’s that Teyon, and they’re back to take another crack at a movie-inspired game. To be fair, the trailer for Terminator: Resistance already appears much more promising than either the Terminator: Dark Fate film, or Teyon’s last gaming outing but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Terminator: Resistance looks to take gamers on a single-player FPS experience through the war with the machines itself. Set 30 years after Judgement Day, the day that Skynet basically laid waste to the world in nuclear fire, war rages on. Humans and Skynet’s army of machines, large and small, are locked in an eternal struggle to wipe each other off the face of the Earth. For reasons yet to be revealed, the player character has been marked a high priority target for the machines.
Terminator: Resistance introduces a new hero, Jacob Rivers, a soldier in the Resistance Pacific Division. Despite the fact that Jacob is just a private, he’ll soon discover that he’s been targeted by the latest threat from SKYNET and marked for termination!
SKYNET may be destined to lose this war, but at what cost to Jacob? Experience the events leading up to the decisive final battle, smash SKYNET’s Defence Grid and help decide the fate of mankind in the war against the machines!
What do you think of the first footage of Terminator: Resistance? I’d like to have hope personally, but the majority of Terminator video games have almost been as bad as the last few films. Terminator: Resistance launches November 15, 2019 to the European and Austrailian gaming markets, with a launch in North America to follow on December 3, 2019 and will be available on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC platforms.
