Terminator: Resistance, due for release on November 15th in PAL regions (Europe and Australia) and December 10th in North America, was showcased again today by publisher Reef Entertainment and developer Teyon. After a video dedicated to sneaking and hacking, this time around we get to check out a combat trailer.
Piotr Latocha, Producer at Teyon, stated:
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.
The second video shared today shows the opening of Terminator: Resistance (with spoilers edited out for obvious reasons), with Piotr Latocha explaining:
We wanted to create situations in the early part of the game where engaging T-800s elicited dread and fear. So at the 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.
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.
It looks like this will be more than a mere cookie-cutter shooter, with dialogue choices and side missions spicing up the formula.
