New details on Terminator: Survivors game and it sounds like it could be a winner

Are you prepared to fight in a world where AI and deadly machines are trying to kill you? Yeah, so am I!

New details have come out about Nacon’s open-world, first-person shooter Terminator: Survivors and it seems that the game will, like the first two movies, see the player fleeing one “relentless and formidable hunter that cannot be stopped”, in the shape of the T-800 Endoskeleton, above.

We also know the timeline of the game and that it will follow the events of the second Terminator movie, which saw Judgment Day 1997 stopped or, well, delayed: “The game unfolds in 2009, shortly after the cataclysmic Judgment Day, during a period when Skynet’s production capabilities hadn’t yet reached their peak,” say Nacon.

“The T-800, an infiltration unit, serves as a reminder of Skynet’s relentless pursuit across time. The T-800 encountered by players is one of these units, sent by Skynet in its desperate attempts to rewrite history and secure victory in the Future War.”

Personally, I feel that Terminator has been crying our for a solid game adaptation and would pay good money to see one that expands on but completely respects the lore of the franchise and it sounds like Nacon want to do just that: “The inclusion of a single T-800 in the game serves not only to uphold the integrity of the franchise’s lore but also to deliver an immersive gameplay experience that pays homage to the films that inspired it.” 

Yeah, I’m in! What say you all?

Terminator Survivors launches just in time for Halloween on October 24.

He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
