With Terminator: Resistance out next week, publisher Reef Entertainment and developer Teyon have released two new videos of their licensed first-person shooter.
The first showcases a little of the combat, while the second shows a lot more, with nearly ten minutes of footage from the opening moments of the game. Don’t worry, spoilers are kept to a minimum, thanks to the developer’s careful editing.
Piotr Latocha, Producer at Teyon, had this to say about the upcoming Terminator tie-in:
“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 our team has also worked hard to create a thrilling story, an engaging cast of characters and satisfying RPG-lite mechanics.”
He also wanted to reinforce the idea that the game isn’t always about fighting. T-800s are killing machines, after all.
“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.”
Terminator: Resistance comes to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on November 15th. Looks pretty good, too.
