No, that headline is not a typo: a worldwide exclusive is happening right now at Gen Con 50, namely, the reveal of the Terminator 2 Judgement Day tabletop game.
Rule & Make, the company behind Burger Up, Entropy, Skyward, and Hands of Fate: Ordeals has announced that they’ll be destroying the world with a new tabletop game based on the classic film with an officially licensed tabletop game.
T2029 will be set sometime in the future after the events of 1995 in the film.
The team at Rule & Make have secured a Worldwide Exclusive License for the movie’s tabletop gaming rights, and will be launching a Kickstarter project for the game in September, for a worldwide release in association with Passport Games Studio in 2018.
A cooperative game that involves miniatures, dice drafting and card manipulation, T2029 will see players commanding officers in John Connor’s army in the war against the machines. Players will work together to hold back the Terminator forces and allow John Connor enough time to reach Skynet Central Command.
To win the game, players will also need to hack into Skynet’s Defence Grid, reprogram a T-800 and send it back to 1995 to protect John Connor.
A teaser trailer with more details on the game will be released on the 20th anniversary of Judgement Day, August 29, 2017.
