NEW TRAILER AND GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE

Watch two new gameplay videos for TERMINATOR: RESISTANCE - a combat-focused game trailer and the first minutes of gameplay.

UK video game publisher Reef Entertainment and developer Teyon are delighted to share two new gameplay videos for TERMINATOR: RESISTANCE. All footage has been captured from the PC version of the game.

COMBAT FOCUSED GAME TRAILER

This combat trailer focuses on Jacob Rivers, the main protagonist and a member of the Resistance battling SKYNET in the Future War.
Private Jacob Rivers starts the game on the run from SKYNET’s forces after his division is routed by a mysterious new foe.  Forced to strike at SKYNET from the shadows while protecting a group of civilian survivors, Jacob is brought to the attention of Resistance South Division’s Commander Baron.  Under her leadership Jacob will learn how to wield Tech-Com’s arsenal to take the fight back to SKYNET.

When developing the game we knew that authentically recreating the Future War scenario was key for fans, so we put a lot of effort into analysing the short glimpses we get of the future in Terminator and Terminator 2 in order to bring those environments and details to the game as closely as possible. The best example of this is the resistance shelter which is seen in the first Terminator. Also the Resistance uniforms are recreated with a lot of attention to detail. We really hope Terminator fans will enjoy lovingly crafted touches such as these in the game. Combat is an exciting part of TERMINATOR: RESISTANCE but the our team has also worked hard to create a thrilling story, an engaging cast of characters and satisfying RPG-lite mechanics.

FIRST MINUTES OF GAMEPLAY

The first minutes of TERMINATOR: RESISTANCE gameplay video serves as an introduction to the game’s mechanics and world. It shows a short selection of cut-scenes and gameplay from the opening of the game. Edits have been made to the footage presented here to avoid spoilers.

We wanted to create situations in the early part of the game where engaging T-800s elicited dread and fear. So at beginning, the player has no access to plasma weaponry, so he isn't able to harm a T-800. The only way is to avoid it or knock it down with a shotgun and use the moment to flee. The situation changes when Jacob gets access to more advanced weapons later in the game.

The first mission of the game also introduces some of the survivors whose fates have been entwined with Jacob. Players are given the choice of how they want to interact with these characters through dialogue and side missions.

We believe that in the Terminator universe the characters are as important as the combat itself, so we created a cast of characters with intriguing backstories that the player will have a chance to learn if they’re willing to. Gaining their trust will be crucial because that impacts how each of their stories ends.

TERMINATOR: RESISTANCE will release for PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC via Steam® on November 15th 2019 in Europe & Australia and December 10th 2019 in North America.
