New Terminator Game Ties Into Upcoming Film

Warner Bros. today officially announced Terminator Salvation - The Videogame, based on the Christian Bale-starring Terminator Salvation flick that hits May 22, 2009.

Crafted by Bionic Commando and Wanted: Weapons of Fate developer GRIN, the game is billed as "an action-packed, third-person shooter" with game-exclusive enemies, and will arrive "in conjunction" with the movie.

Apart from a mention of "next generation consoles," platforms for the game were not provided. A previous report pegged it for "next-generation consoles, PC and mobile."

"The player will be led through a visceral story with extremely polished production values to create a fully interactive Terminator experience," noted Cos Lazouras, president of Terminator license holder Halcyon Games.

The game will sport "an incredibly fluid and realistic control set," Lazouras added.

Upon its release, Terminator Salvation - The Videogame will be published by Equity Games, co-published by Evolved Games and distributed by Warner Bros.

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.

    Hrm...sounds kinda like what they did with the game for the Matrix. Ya know, where you get a few sidestories with some cutscenes?

      Yeah... but another interesting idea which will probably go horribly wrong. Rushing game release dates to meet movie releases... it usually goes all wrong.

      I liked what they did with The Matrix, but I wish a "real" Matrix game would be released aside from PoN.

      Side stories aren't all that bad, except when people WANT to play the main characters!
