EXCLUSIVE: There's a brand new Terminator board game on the way and interested players can jump in on the Kickstarter very soon. Titled Terminator Genisys: Rise of the Resistance and based on Skydance’s feature film Terminator Genisys from director Alan Taylor, River Horse Games and Lynnvander Studios have teamed up and combined their extensive experience in publishing and game design to bring fans the ultimate Terminator board game, illustrated by award-winning artist Steve Argyle, best known for his work on Magic: The Gathering and Legend of the Five Rings.
Coming to Kickstarter on April 9, the game, set in 2029, will be a four-player cooperative adventure, where you play as the remaining forces of humanity battling against the near unstoppable forces of SkyNet. The game features loads of highly, detailed miniatures, including your favorite heroes and their robotic counterparts. With a variety of interlocking tiles that form the game board, as well as a series of missions that string together to create a major story-driven campaign, players will struggle to outsmart the most powerful artificial intelligence in history, all in a desperate scramble for survival.
Join Kyle Reese and John Connor fighting for the future of mankind. Players will do everything from rescuing prisoners to dealing with infiltrators, from gathering weapons and supplies to taking part in the final assault against SkyNet’s secret weapon, The Time Machine.

“The Terminator world has fascinated me since I was 12-years-old, and being a part of continuing its legacy is living a dream. The incredible team that has poured their enthusiasm and expertise into this game is inspiring. I'm so excited for the world to play it!"
