Terminator: Resistance Released

Terminator: Resistance is now available for Windows on Steam. This was released on Thursday, so apologies for failing to mention this at the time. We did note the release of the Launch Trailer, so that may already be familiar. This post covers the launch, and includes a discrete tutorial on changing your field of view. Here's the news:
The wait is finally over, the game is out now and we hope that everyone is enjoying Terminator: Resistance so far! We have been paying close attention to everyone's feedback and it's great to see so much support and interest for the game!

The main goal with this project has been to create a story and world which Terminator fans will love, remaining faithful to the source material shown in the beloved movies.

Although the game has released, we will still be working hard to ensure that everyone gets to enjoy the game to it's fullest. If you are unsure about something before purchasing, or experiencing any technical issues, please let us know in the discussion section.

We are aware of some of issues which have already been posted, so rest assured that we're paying attention! We will work with the developers at Teyon to ensure that the game can be played by as many people as possible!

A very big thank you to everyone again for supporting and showing interest in Terminator: Resistance!

Releasing a sci-fi movie tie-in game within a few days of an apparently pretty decent Star Wars game riding the high of a new TV series and upcoming movie...

A number of the Steam reviews are name-checking Terminator: Future Shock and Terminator: Skynet so if you appreciated those it might be worth a closer look.

This came out of nowhere. I had no idea a Terminator game was about to drop and then it just did. While it's by no means ground breaking, I also hear it's probably the best thing we could get to a Terminator game in the world of hardly any Terminator games. You'd think by now we would have had quite few FPS within the franchise because it seems made for it.

I wouldn't mind picking this up when it hits the bargain bin.

An 82 on MetaCritic from the Users Reviews and 86% on Steam. That's right around what Fallen Order and RDR2 is getting. So it is safe to conclude it is a good game and achieves what it set out to do. As one Steam user wrote, "Simply put, this is the best Terminator game ever made. OG Terminator fans owe it to themselves to play this."

I watched a review where the reviewer said that this game was made on a low budget and that it would be obvious but that it was also made by a team that obviously knows what was good about Terminator and brought that to the game. So don't expect an AAA product but a nice smaller game with some soul.

The trailer looks like a visual upgrade to the gameplay of those older games like Future Shock and Rampage.

It's a solid game. I have been enjoying playing it. No crashes, no janky animations for the most part.

It is decidedly a Terminator game set not long after the events of Judgement Day.

I'd recommend it if you like non-hyperactive shooting and running constantly. You can sneak your way to most objectives.

No BR mode, no sale.

This looks pretty cool. SP FPS games are rare, so I'll definitely pick this up at some point.

In other words, I'll be back.

That's I've got for now. Hasta la vista baby!

I suppose in cosmic terms, 31 years is "not long after."

I remember "Future Shock" back in the day and it was a damn good game. Is it exclusive to Steam?

The worst criminal in human history, undeniably. There has never been a figure in political history, so dedicated to destroying the prospects of organized human life on the planet, in the near future.

The gameplay is too basic, and boring. But I hope this will show that there is a market for a good Terminator game. They really need to give the license to a large and proven studio and let them do something more interesting than shooting lame robots that aren't from the movies the entire game.... they missed the mark between making the robots feel dangerous, but also not annoying or spongy.

The universe is perfect for a survival style game. While Future Shock has not aged well, at the time they marked the 2029 feeling.

E.g. A semi open world like MGS5 so you are part of a guerilla squad, raiding for supplies in your shelter, and then raiding tactical facilities to influence the overall war. And like MGS5 really allow for setting up the raids, because you don't have the fire power, so tactics are important.

Or give me a GTA style game where I'm the T800 and need to find targets, with out being discovered by the law.

Or an asymmetric multilayer game. 60 human resistance players vs 4 (human) AI commanders controlling the machines from an RTS view. This way people can play out those Kyle Reese battle scenes.

Is even settle for a Future Shock reskin (minus the maze like facilities and button hunts)

Independent of the Terminator IP, this kind of game would be so awesome.

20-60 FPS players, vs 2-4 human commanders running dozens or hundreds of bot players could be so awesome. Bandwidth and server issues would crop up, but there could be a really cool game in there. Quite a bit of playtesting would be needed to even approach being balanced, but it would be a unique, new(?) game.

Even the old Battlezone games weren't quite like that.

I read that if you launch it with a -vr switch it will run in a crude vr mode. The cutscenes don't work and the controls are wonky but apparently it does support it. Perhaps a modder can do something with it, like with Alien Isolation.

Why is there a checkpoint? If the answer is consoles, today's console have hard drives making the checkpoint system obsolete. So why do developers persist with checkpoints? Does it take too much development time to put in a save/load anywhere system?

Pacing and dealing with save-scumming in a simple and obvious (to the player) way. Some developers want players to replay scenarios/encounters "as intended" and not "from the instant before things went wrong", and designing and implementing systems for detecting when things "will go wrong" before they actually do is folly in most genres. It is, simply, a design decision.

It's a flawed system in my opinion. How I choose to play a game is of no concern to the developers. If they want to tie my hands behind my back, then I have no qualms using a cheat to render their checkpoint system meaningless. Do they not realize cheats exist?

That's only true for an open world game. Otherwise, it IS the concern of the developers how they want the game and story to unfold/be played. You either like it or not.
