Plarium Global Ltd. Partners with Skydance to Develop an All-New Multiplayer ‘Terminator’ Mobile Game

Mobile Strategy Game Chronicles War Between Skynet and The Resistance

TEL AVIV, Israel & SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Plarium,
one of the fastest growing developers of mobile, social and web-based
games with over 250 million users, today announced a partnership with
Skydance for the rights to develop a Terminator Genisys™ mobile
game for iOS and Android. The clan-based massively multiplayer online
(MMO) mobile strategy game will pull from the themes, experiences and
character likenesses from the latest entry in the Terminator franchise.
The free to play game will be available worldwide early in 2017.


“Mobile games have incredible potential to expand the universe of
characters and experiences we have created for a movie and provide
audiences and fans with a brand new perspective on our content,” said
Jesse Sisgold, Chief Operating Officer at Skydance Media. “Plarium has
had great success in creating state-of-the-art MMO titles and we look
forward to working with them to bring our Terminator franchise to
mobile devices in highly engaging new ways.”

Terminator Genisys was the fifth installment of the franchise,
presented by Paramount Pictures and Skydance. When John Connor (Jason
Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai
Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and
safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured
timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version
of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the
Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an
unexpected new mission: to reset the future.

This new game will follow the struggles of The Resistance, whose
soldiers are in a state of civil war over the few resources and weapons
that remain. Players start the game as the machines begin to wake up …
but this time, without central command to dictate their actions. Players
will have the option to lead a Resistance Commander or Skynet Command
Node as the war between machine and man continues.

“We all grew up on the Terminator franchise as kids, and bringing
the essence of Terminator Genisys to a game together with the
innovative team at Skydance is a great aspiration we took on,” said
Leonard Frankel, Head of Business Development for Plarium. “In this game
we will call upon our players to pick sides and make history: help
humanity prevail or crush it. This will be Epic!”

This partnership is the first of its kind between Plarium and Skydance
Media. Plarium’s previous titles include “Vikings: War of Clans”,
“Stormfall: Rise of Balur”, “Total Domination: Reborn”. For more
