Open world Terminator game, Terminator: Survivors, comes to Early Access this October

"Pasta el Vista" or whatever Arnie says.

A new Terminator game has been in development for some time, and you’ll be able to play it later this year. Well, in Early Access at least, as Terminator: Survivor will be hitting Steam on October 24. Check out the “Aftermath” trailer below.

If you haven’t heard of this – and I must admit I was a bit ignorant of it – Survivors is an open-world game that’s set after Judgment Day in James Cameron’s sci-fi universe.

The above trailer doesn’t give a huge amount away. We see two scavengers, nervously seeking out supplies. With the world in such turmoil, the threat of a Terminator is ever-present. We then get to see the reflection of one of the skeletal robots as it scans the two fuel-seeking humans.

Terminator: Survivors is being developed by Nacon, and is pretty hot off the heels of the publisher’s previous game based on a popular sci-fi franchise: RoboCop: Rogue City. Much like the latter, Rogue City offers a new lease on life for the iconic film series.

Whether Survivors will be as well received remains to be seen at this stage. An open-world game where you’re fighting and surviving against killer robots? Sign me the heck up.

Nacon describes the upcoming game – which is also getting a release on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 – thus:

It’s been four years since the day humanity nearly perished. The truth of the event is still muddied in half-truths as you emerge from a shelter to attempt [to] reestablish some semblance of society in a world that seems hell-bent on eliminating you and the last vestiges of mankind. You are tasked with scouring the surrounding land for materials, information, other survivors and key resources in order to establish a base of operations for your fledgling group.

Fun!
