Fresh on the heels of the new “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” massive multiplayer online role-playing mobile game (MMORPG) that we recently reported on here, suddenly a second MMORPG mobile Terminator game has been announced! Yes, game publisher Plarium is teaming up with Skydance Media to make a mobile game based on the “Terminator Genisys” film!
Tentatively scheduled to debut on iOS and Android devices in early 2017, this game will take place in the beginning days of the Future War and players will have the option to play as a Resistance Commander or a Skynet Command Node in the war between man and machine. Yes, that’s right! You can play as either the Machines or the Resistance! And the timeline, the theme and all the characters you love in “Terminator Genisys” will be featured in the game!
This is what Leonard Frankel, head of business development for Plarium games, had to say:
“We all grew up on the Terminator franchise as kids, and bringing the essence of Terminator Genisys to a game together with the innovative team at Skydance is a great aspiration we took on. In this game we will call upon our players to pick sides and make history: help humanity prevail or crush it. This will be epic.”
Epic indeed! We’ll be back as more details become available!
