Terminator: Resistance

To coincide with the launch of Terminator: Resistance on Steam, here's the shooter's launch trailer. It's now available here, but the trailer above lets us enjoy some delicately edited together footage of robots absolutely copping it.

Developed by Reef Entertainment, Terminator: Resistance is set 31 years after Judgement Day, in 2028 to be precise. The action plays out in Los Angeles, where the war against the machines is well underway, though all reports suggest that it's far from a run-and-gunner: careful planning and stealth seem to factor in heavily, perhaps in a way reminiscent of the recent Wolfenstein games.

If the footage above piques your interest, maybe you should check out this 10 minute gameplay video. It actually looks quite promising, and if there's one thing the 2019 desperately needs, it's a good single-player first-person shooter.

Correction: This story initially reported a December release date for Terminator: Resistance.

Terminator: Resistance

There's a new Terminator game coming out soon, and it's basically taking those glimpses of the future war seen in the first two movies and turning them into a setting for a first-person shooter that looks a bit like Far Cry. Only not made with quite the same budget, of course. 

Terminator: Resistance the work of Teyon, who were responsible for a rail-shooter based on Rambo back in 2014, but based on these 10 minutes of footage their Terminator game looks a bit better than that. It's got optional stealth, lootable enemies, NPCs who remember decisions you make in a very Telltale way, and apparently some kind of crafting. Maybe it's just because I have fond memories of playing Terminator 2 in the arcade, but it looks fine to me.

Set 30 years after the robots take over, Terminator: Resistance is a singleplayer FPS that casts you as a member of the Resistance fighting back against Skynet in the rubble of Los Angeles. 

Terminator: Resistance will be out on Steam on November 15 in Europe and Australia, and December 3 in the US.

Terminator: Resistance

You might think a Terminator FPS would be packed with explosions and shootouts, but a new gameplay video from Terminator: Resistance, which was revealed last month, suggests the Teyon-developed shooter will have whole sections where you don't touch your trigger.

The footage, from a PlayStation Access EGX livestream, features lots of sneaking, hacking via a Frogger-style minigame and picking locks to grab loot. Rather than blast terminators in the face, you're encouraged to take control of enemy turrets to do the hard work for you: whenever the player is spotted by the T-800s they're melted within sections, suggesting stealth is more a necessity than a choice. Ultra vision spots robots and turrets through walls—handy for plotting your route.

After slipping past turrets, the player enters a hospital that's trying to evoke horror game vibes, with T-800s prowling the corridors as you squirm through vents. 

Terminator: Resistance is out on November 15, and you can watch the reveal trailer here. Teyon have previously made the entirely forgettable Rambo: The Video Game.

Thanks, PCGamesN.

Terminator: Resistance

Quietly announced earlier this month, Terminator: Resistance is a first-person shooter based on the film series of the same name. Specifically, it's set 30 years after Judgement Day, during the Future War, which is a fairly devastating war constantly alluded to in the films (or at least, the ones that still matter: T2: Judgment Day and the original). 

It's developed by Teyon, a studio that hasn't got the best track record (think Rambo The Video Game, which was a rail-shooter released in 2014). But let's not write off Terminator too prematurely: the tiny sliver of gameplay footage provided below looks like it could end up being a serviceable FPS.

According to the game's Steam page, you can play it as a guns-blazing FPS, or take it slow and stealthy. You'll gather scraps to "trade and craft" and there will be skill upgrades to deliberate over. Overall, it sounds like it belongs to a rare breed: a story-focused, singleplayer FPS.

The game releases on November 15. Check out the announcement trailer below:
