Terminator: Dark Fate – Defiance: Slitherine announces strategy game for the film series


The publisher Slitherine, who specializes in strategy games, used the in-house event “Home of Wargamer” to announce Terminator: Dark Fate – Defiance, a new title from the well-known film universe. Slitherine revealed that you will act here as the commander of a human armed force and have to fight against Legion, the leader of the machine army, but also against other human factions. Terminator: Dark Fate – Defiance will also get a PvP multiplayer mode for up to four players. In addition to the following teaser video, a flight over the Oklahoma City location was shown, which you can find below.

These main features are listed at Slitherine (in the original):

  • Start humanity’s resistance against the machines by surviving engagements with Legion and rallying others to your cause. In the post-Judgement Day world, the greatest threats may not come from the machines but rather from other human survivors.
  • Traverse various dangerous locals, find additional allies and supplies and navigate the brutal differences between competing human factions.
  • Engage in complex, realistic battles where your tactical decisions are vital to your survival and ultimate victory. Use a variety of military equipment, vehicles and ammunition types in your battles against the enemy. Recruit and train new units, assign new skills and acquire new weapons and equipment to continue the resistance.
  • Your battlefield tactics and choices have deep consequences. Your resources are limited and you must protect your army. Weapons of war receive damage through a modular component damage system where armour characteristics, component malfunctions and hull structure all affect if your troops survive.
  • Recruit others to your cause and grow your army. Mix and match the composition of your troops to fit your preferred battle tactics. Use infantry units, heavy armoured military vehicles, plasma cannon technology, drones and other flying units and even human skirmishers to achieve victory.
  • Use the battlefield to your advantage! Physics-based building demolition lets you generate a realistic set of tactical consequences, especially in urban areas.
  • Test your skills in online multiplayer matches. Fight against real-life human opponents in 1v1, 2v1, and 2v2 battles.

A release date for Terminator: Dark Fate – Defiance is not yet known.
