If we told you who the developers of Terminator: Resistance are, you’d probably respond with „oh no, anything but them!”
„Terminator: Resistance is a single-player first-person shooter developed by Teyon. It features an original story based on the film rights for legendary motion-pictures The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, nearly 30 years after Judgment Day, and expands upon the Future War glimpsed at in the iconic films from James Cameron, The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Terminator: Resistance introduces a new hero, Jacob Rivers, a soldier in the Resistance Pacific Division. Even though 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!
Resist the machines – Fight against a selection of iconic enemies from the films, including the T-800, as well as a host of enemies that are brand new to the Terminator universe. Equip an arsenal of plasma weaponry – Run and gun or sneak and hack through sprawling environments! The world isn’t as forgiving as it used to be so you’ll need to search for scraps to trade and craft. Choose the kind of hero you want to be – Level-up your skills while exploring post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. Complete story missions to rise through the ranks of the Resistance as well as side-quests to help your friends. Change the fate of mankind – Protect a motley crew of survivors, each with their motivations and backstories. The actions you take throughout the game will impact their survival and change the ending you get,” the publisher Reef Entertainment’s press release says.
You can see two videos below for a good reason. The first one has the gameplay (Terminator: Resistance starts at 2:31:00 or so in PlayStation Access’ video), and it looks far uglier than the announcement trailer. It looks like a PS3 title. It will launch on November 15 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Europe, followed by a North American launch on December 3.
The joke? It is made by the same Teyon (and published by the same Reef) who made Rambo a rail shooter in 2014!
