The ‘T2: Judgment Day’ IP comes to the ‘The Terminator RPG’

The ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ franchise joins ‘The Terminator RPG’, the official roleplaying game based on ‘The Terminator’ movie.
It should have ended with the destruction of the T-800. The future was saved, or was it? Did we just delay the inevitable? Did we fail? Perhaps there’s no fate but what we make.
In ‘The Terminator RPG’, you were The Resistance, fighters struggling against Terminators sent back in time to ensure the rise of the nuclear singularity. But it’s all different now. In the ‘Terminator 2’ movie, the resistance has grown bolder and the battle lines between humanity and the machines got blurred. Now the Resistance is reprogramming T-800s and sending them back to guard key assets. But Skynet is not prepared to go quietly into the night and with new advances in polymimetic alloy, is ever evolving its arsenal and its strategies. Will humanity be able to stop its ascension or will it triumph in a Judgment Day more thorough than ever imagined.
The ‘Terminator 2, Judgment Day’ source book features 200 pages of all new content including:
  • T-1000s and all all-new, never seen before Terminator variants and hardware.
  • Playable Terminators reprogrammed to fight for the Human Resistance – just like in the T2 movie. Machine fighting machine.
  • The Time Dispacement Commandos (TDC), the Resistance’s elite troops sent backwards and forward in time to disrupt Skynet’s plans through time.
  • Enter the 1990s, those critical 7 years before the hammer falls on humanity. The last chance to stop the development of Skynet.
  • Play in any time zone – including the 1980s and future war.
  • Face the challenges of the Future War, whether they be mechanical, animal, human, microbial, chemical, hybrid or liquid metal.
  • Featuring all the main characters from the movie, such as Sarah Connor, Kyle Reese, Miles Dyson, and the T-800 “Uncle Bob” – providing a wealth of new playable options and all new NPCs,
  • Advanced hacking rules
  • The rulebook includes the mission pack, enabling you to relive ‘Terminator 2, Judgment Day’ movie and to join the fight to bring down Skynet in a not-so-distant future war.
More than a gameThe Terminator RPG’ book series is not just a role-playing game—it’s a series of sourcebooks for the first two Terminator films and their expanded universe.
“When we started the ‘The Terminator RPG’, we were so excited and the positive response to fighting time-travelling killer robots, means we can now look to bring the T2 franchise to the game. Our excitement as ramped up to 11. It’s good to be back.” – Mark Rapson, Managing Director of Nightfall Games and Producer of the ‘The Terminator RPG’.
It is a joy to bring the team back together, Andrew E.C. Gaska and the entire writing team are back, as are Dave Allsop’s art team. We have got a lot more cool to add…not least of all, playable T-800s and the ultimate ‘cool’ T-1000.” – Benn Graybeaton, Rules Director of Nightfall Games and Producer of the ‘T2: Judgment Day” source book.
