Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, in cooperation with Equity Games Production and Halcyon Games, has announced that development is underway on a licensed videogame based on the upcoming Christian Bale-starring WB/Sony Pictures feature film Terminator Salvation, due out in theaters May 22, 2009. Terminator Salvation – The Videogame is being developed by the talented Swedish studio GRIN (Bionic Command Rearmed, Bionic Commando, PC versions of GRAW 1 & 2) as an intense third-person shooter starring John Connor as the playable lead, “a soldier in the resistance, battling for survival against the far superior forces of Skynet.” And, well… that’s about all we know right now. It’ll be on store shelves timed with the movie’s theatrical debut, but which platforms it’ll be available for has yet to be disclosed. This is a movie game though, so versions for all the major platforms is highly likely.

“Terminator Salvation – The Videogame allows players to battle for survival against Skynet enemies utilizing an incredibly fluid and realistic control set,” said Cos Lazouras, President of Halcyon Games. “The player will be led through a visceral story with extremely polished production values to create a fully interactive Terminator experience.”

“Building on the incredibly strong franchise, Terminator Salvation – The Videogame will be a cinematic gaming experience that complements the upcoming film,” said John Quinn, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Operations, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Working with Halcyon and Equity Games, we will expand on the Terminator universe on next generation consoles with action packed gameplay and detailed environments.”
