If you’re a fan of the Terminator franchise — and, frankly, who isn’t — and mobile gaming, you might want to know there’s a new game out, courtesy of developer Plarium: Terminator Genisys: Future War.

This one picks up right about where the last movie (Terminator Genisys) ended. It’s an MMO with clan partnerships, allowing players to go to battle for precious resources.

Terminator Genisys: Future War is a free-to-play mobile strategy game where the human Resistance is locked in a never-ending war with the machine army. Genisys is destroyed and Skynet is offline, but the future war is far from over. Engage in large-scale strategic warfare and rejoin the struggle between machine and man. Build your base, attack your enemies and pave the way to victory for your clan in tactical multiplayer.

Plariom CMO Gabi Shalel talks about the natural collaboration. “Pairing the Terminator Genisys universe with Plarium’s advanced strategy gameplay was one of the most natural creative decisions we’ve made because the franchise aligns so well with our core game mechanics,” he says. “From the epic scale of the game to the diverse weaponry, futuristic technology and ability to play as ‘good’ or ‘evil’, this is the experience Terminator fans have always wanted.”
