There’s a Terminator crossover coming as part of Call Of Duty Season 4, but it only involves making two of its characters playable.
Activision has now officially acknowledged the Terminator crossover, beyond just a Twitter tease.
It’s nothing as fancy as the Godzilla and King Kong event from last season, however. Instead, it just involves adding the original T-800 (Arnie) from the first movie and the T-1000 from the sequel as playable operators.
Both will arrive as part of a mid-season update in limited-time bundles. Until then, we have some new promo art but no in-game screenshots or footage.
The fourth season of content for Call Of Duty: Vanguard and Call Of Duty: Warzone is kicking off later today, and Activision has confirmed that it will feature a crossover with the Terminator franchise.
The update isn’t live until 5pm BST this afternoon and Activision has yet to explain what sort of Terminator content will be included, but they’ve not exactly tried to be secretive about it.
Other classic 80s action movies have already made an appearance in Call Of Duty, namely Rambo and Die Hard, with their respective main protagonists being made playable. Godzilla and King Kong also appeared in the most recent crossover.
It’s probably safe to assume that we’ll see at least one playable Terminator character, be it Sarah Connor or Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator himself.
Hopefully, their character models won’t be as odd looking as the Rambo and John McClane ones.
The first teaser for the crossover was made via the official Call Of Duty Twitter account, with an image of gold bars surrounding one that looks like it’s made of silver or platinum.
A second teaser image revealed that it’s actually mimetic polyalloy, the material used to make certain Terminator models and grants them shapeshifting abilities.
Just to make it more obvious, the material is also emblazoned with the Skynet logo and accompanied by the message ‘Grab this intel as fast as you can… they’ll be back,’ a clear reference to the franchise’s iconic catchphrase.
Considering the polyalloy is more associated with the T-1000, the Terminator model featured in the second sequel movie, perhaps that will be the character Activision is including.
What time is the Call Of Duty: Warzone update?
Activision’s website has a roadmap for Season 4, which has revealed other upcoming pieces of content like a new map for Warzone and the return of the round-based Zombies mode.
We’ll have to wait until 5pm BST, on June 22, to see what exactly the new update brings but having an option to replace the Zombies with an army of Terminators would make for a fitting inclusion.
Or it could have them as enemies that roam the map during Warzone matches, similar to the Godzilla and King Kong event from the last season.
Call Of Duty: Vanguard is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
Call Of Duty: Warzone is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
