Terminator: Dark Fate, the Card Game has been revealed by tabletop publisher River Horse in a press release — and you can buy it right now.

In a dark future, movie studios are still cranking out Terminator films. Oh, and I guess a bunch of killer robots are trying to eliminate all of mankind. It's up to 2–4 players to gather enough weapons and resources in order to fend off the dreaded Rev-9.

Here's a video that shows you just how this game is played:

This co-operative deck-building game has some tough decisions ahead for people who want to try to take on the Terminator. Do you stand your ground or fight, or do you choose to flee? Fighting will let the Rev-9 inflict wounds on your party, so that's always a risk. Fleeing, however, isn't much better. It's a machine. It doesn't exactly get tired. You'll need to balance gathering resources, gathering weapons, and fighting with the whole "staying alive" thing — and hopefully, humanity comes out on top.

Bear in mind that this is a company headquartered on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, so shipping will be a bit hefty — it came up to well over £15.00 for me, bringing the total cost of the game to more than £40.00 (≈$51.89).
