There is no destiny but what developer Epic Games makes for Fortnite, the game that just added both Sarah Connor and the T-800 as depicted in the best sequel in movie history – Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
The rumors have been roaming around the last several days about the possible addition of Skynet’s weapon of mass destruction, and more recent gossips point to the inclusion of Sarah Connor as well. Both have landed in the game in a season that’s already added Darryl and Michonne from The Walking Dead, Green Arrow, Kratos from God of War, Master Chief, The Predator, and jerseys from more than 20 global soccer teams.
This is far from the first that the T-800 and its co-casts have emerged in the world of video games. In the lead-up to the launch of Terminator: Dark Fate in 2019, the character appeared as a playable character in various high profile titles.
Players can take the T-800 join forces against the COG army in Gears 5 and have Arnold Schwarzenegger himself battle it out with Robocop and Rambo in Mortal Kombat 11. There was also the shockingly well-made Terminator: Resistance releasing that year, using the series as the backdrop for a budget take on Bethesda’s Fallout games. However, out of all its appearances in video games, entering Fortnite’s battle royale has got to be the most over the top.
In the short trailer introducing The Terminator into the wildly growing fiction of Fortnite, John “Jonesy” Jones is seen rescuing the T-800 from his fate at the conclusion of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, dragging him and Sarah Connor through a mystical hole in space-time known as the Zero Point.
The ongoing season of Fortnite is all about seeking out hunters from across the multiverse utilizing this portal, which is the narrative reason for the huge uptick in crossover characters seen over the past several months.
Players interested in getting the Terminator skin bundle in Fortnite have several options. For $20 worth of V-Bucks, players can receive the Terminator and Sarah Connor, themed pickaxes and back bling for the characters, and a flaming thumbs up emote that copies the popular scene at the end of Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
Both skins will also be available separately for those who do not want to go all-in. Sarah Connor’s skin will have two different editions, representing the character at the start of her adventure in the first film and the renegade military woman she becomes in the sequel.
