Gameloft Releases ‘Terminator Salvation’ Trailer, Announces ‘Sherlock Holmes’ Movie Rights

terminator_salvation_3Gameloft’s Terminator Salvation is a highly anticipated game based on the movie of the same name that we’ve been keeping a very close eye on.

By controlling both John Connor, leader of the human resistance and Marcus Wright, a terminator who believes himself to be human, players will battle SkyNet in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings.

This afternoon Gameloft released a gameplay trailer which should leave fans of the Terminator series hungry for its release, as well as piquing the interest of anyone looking for an action packed third person shooter.

Last week we previewed a development build of this graphically impressive title. Terminator Salvation is scheduled for release during the first week of May at a premium price-point of $7.99 to $9.99. Look forward to detailed coverage as more information becomes available to us.

Meanwhile, Gameloft announced today that they had acquired the mobile game rights to another upcoming movie, Sherlock Holmes.

A dynamic new portrayal of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous character, “Sherlock Holmes” sends Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his trusted colleague Watson (Jude Law) on their latest challenge. Revealing fighting skills as lethal as his legendary intellect, Holmes will battle as never before to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy England.

Given Gameloft’s strong performance with iPhone games, it seems certain that this title will also be coming to the iPhone and iPod touch as well later this year.
