Game publisher Nacon is currently creating two games based on 1980s sci-fi classic movies. With the recent release of Stranger Things season four leaving the masses with an unquenchable thirst for nostalgic 80s content, the game company has picked a perfect time to unveil its upcoming projects.
Both games were announced at the Nacon Connect event earlier this month.
The as yet untitled Terminator game – currently going by the name of Terminator Survival Project – will be an open-world survival adventure game from Nacon Studio Milan. The action takes place after Judgment Day, but before John Conner builds his resistance. Player choices will affect both the story and character relationships. Little other information is available about the title, though there is a short reveal trailer.
Nacon said that, “The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic open world and features an original story that builds on the events of the official films. You play as a group of nuclear apocalypse survivors fighting to stay alive in a time period between Judgment Day and the creation of John Connor’s resistance.”
I’d Buy That For A Dollar!
Also currently in development, Robocop: Rogue City is a first-person shooter available for PC next summer. Developers Teyon – responsible for the buggy 2019 game Terminator Resistance – is developing the title. Actor Peter Weller is reprising his role as Robocop by providing voiceovers for the game. Robocop: Rogue City will be a gory, action-packed FPS, judging by the gameplay trailer.
“Welcome to Detroit; crime runs rampant as the city lies on the edge of ruin, people fighting for scraps as others live extravagant lives of luxury,” writes PlayStation on YouTube. “Control of the Detroit Police Department is given to the Omni Consumer Products corporation in an attempt to restore order. You are that solution, RoboCop, a cyborg tasked with protecting the city.”
Games To Movies
While Nacon is busy making game adaptations of sci-fi films, streaming services like Netflix focus on the opposite—adapting games for television and film. HBO Max plans to release a live-action series adaptation of The Last of Us in 2023. Likewise, Netflix is working on a Bioshock film adaptation and Prime Video is sizing up a God of War series.
