Mobile and web-based game developer Plarium partnered with Skydance to create a mobile game based on Terminator Genisys, the latest film in the Terminator franchise, released in 2015. The “clan-based MMO strategy game” will feature content inspired by the film.
Plarium said players will begin the game as the machines “begin to wake up,” but these machines won’t have central command to control their actions. Each user will choose to become a Resistance Commander or the leader of a Skynet Command Node in the war between man and machines.
In a statement, Jesse Sisgold, chief operating officer at Skydance Media, commented:
Mobile games have incredible potential to expand the universe of characters and experiences we have created for a movie and provide audiences and fans with a brand-new perspective on our content. Plarium has had great success in creating state-of-the-art MMO titles and we look forward to working with them to bring our Terminator franchise to mobile devices in highly engaging new ways.
Plarium’s Terminator Genisys mobile game is expected to launch on iOS and Android in early 2017.
