Terminator: Resistance takes place in post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. The game acts as a predecessor to the first two Terminator movies, although it takes place about 30 years after Judgement Day. The player controls protagonist Jacob Rivers, who takes up fight against Skynet in the Resistance Pacific Division. Although Jacob is merely a low ranking private, it soon turns out that he is the target of Skynet's latest weapon and is to be wiped out! Skynet may be destined to lose the war, but at what cost to Jacob? Experience the events before the decisive final battle, smash Skynet's defence lines and help decide the fate of mankind in the war against the machines!
