Atari Ships "The Terminator: Dawn of Fate"

Atari shipped The Terminator: Dawn of Fate, a third-person action game based on the hit movie franchise, to retail stores this week for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft. Developed by the masterminds at Infogrames’ own Paradigm Entertainment, creators of the highly regarded Spy Hunter, The Terminator: Dawn of Fate is a true prequel to the first Terminator movie and tells the story of what happened before SkyNet sent the first Terminator back in time. "The Terminator: Dawn of Fate is exciting for gamers and movie buffs alike, because it doesn’t just retell the story of the film, it tells a new story and adds unseen elements to the Terminator universe," said Jean-Philippe Agati, senior vice president and head of Infogrames, Inc.’s Los Angeles studio. "Working closely with the licensor allowed us to envision the fictional future of the world and create exciting new enemies. The game plays with the same white knuckled pace as the Terminator(TM) movies -- enemies are relentless, come in large numbers and won’t stop until the player is terminated or they themselves are destroyed." In James Cameron’s original Terminator movie (released in 1984), humanity dangles on the brink of extinction as ragged bands of humans struggle for their lives against the mechanized technological giant, Skynet. The year is 2029 and humanity’s last and best chance for survival rests in the hands of Tech Com, a group of hard-hitting resistance fighters led by John Connor. The Terminator: Dawn of Fate thrusts gamers into the events leading up to 2029. Set in 2027 against the vivid backdrop of a post-apocalyptic Earth, players must battle Terminators and other sinister HKs (Hunter/Killer machines) across bleak, war-torn urban battlefields, hi-tech R&D labs and heavy machine factories. By defeating Skynet’s ferocious mercenaries and completing their missions, gamers will ultimately arrive where the first movie began-sending Kyle Reese back in time to stop the Terminator, protect Sarah Connor (John Connor’s mother) and the fate of all humanity. Players will face off against their robotic foes as three unique playable characters, including Kyle Reese-the hero of the first Terminator movie -- a hardened soldier and unknowing father to John Connor; Catherine Luna, a special operations officer; and Captain Justin Perry, a grizzled Tech Com veteran and Connor’s right-hand man. Each character is equipped with distinct strengths, combat style and signature weapons that come into play during the game. More than 20 high-energy weapons are at the player’s disposal for mowing down Terminators and other Skynet HKs, including rocket launchers, shock batons and explosive devices. Additionally, highly intuitive artificial intelligence (AI) fighters will join the cause, lending their lives to assist in destroying Skynet. Featuring 11 massive levels of cyborg-blasting mayhem and highly interactive environments, the game will immerse players in a richly detailed futuristic universe that reflects the original vision for the Terminator(TM) movies. The Terminator: Dawn of Fate also features a revolutionary dynamic camera system that allows the player to locate and target an enemy clearly and instinctively with its dedicated combat cam mode. The Terminator: Dawn of Fate shipped to most retail outlets this week with an estimated retail price of $49.99 and an ESRB rating of "T" for teen.
