The trio made up by Warner Bros, Equity Games Production and Halcyon Games plans to release the new title on May 22 2009.

Terminator Salvation will be a third-person shooter. Players will take up the role of John Connor, a soldier in the resistance, battling for survival against the far superior forces of Skynet. As expected, the developers will pour in all of the Skynet enemies from the film, plus some new additions, specifically designed for the game.

“Terminator Salvation 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.”

The game was developed by GRIN Studios, published by Equity Games, co-published by Evolved Games and distributed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
