FPS Terminator, a tentative title I’m assuming, is a gorgeous looking game that, believe it or not, seems to be a Gears of War mod. I’m not terribly knowledgeable in the modding community, but given that Gears of War is a third person game and FPS Terminator is a first person game, I’m wondering just how much tinkering the developers had to do to make it so. Maybe the simple fact that Gears of War uses the Unreal Engine is enough? Couldn’t say.
Regardless, I will say that this is probably the most impressive, ambitious, and hugely large undertaking I’ve seen for a mod in a long time, and I’m damn excited for it too.
Here’s a description from the developers:
This is a single player experience for all Terminator fans using the Unreal Engine III by Epic Games. Set in the year 2029 you are placed in the boots a of soldier serving humankind against a ruthless army of machines. The final campaign will feature nine chapters, inspired by James Cameron’s masterpiece franchise.
Not terribly detailed, but don’t let that sway you from the mod itself. I wasn’t convinced either until I saw the gameplay video (below).
The mod still does not have a concrete release date with the developer only sticking to his “TBD” acronym. However, the mod has been in development for over a year and, if the gameplay video below is any indication then it seems like the mod is definitely coming together nicely. I can’t wait to see the final product.
