Arnie to star in Terminator 3

B-b-b-bad to the bone.

Dear old Arnie Schwarzenegger is to have his likeness and voice appear in a videogame for the first time ever with the arrival of Black Ops-developed Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. The game is set to feature movie segments from the eponymous film (due in the summer), and another five-minute sequence shot exclusively for the game.

Players able to play as the original Terminator itself in the war against the raging mechanised armies controlled by the monstrous SkyNet AI. In a rather intriguing twist, you will also be able to play as the Terminator before he is reprogrammed to protect resistance leader John Connor, joining in the effort to crush the last remnants of humanity - just what we've always wanted.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines will land on Xbox, PS2 and GameCube this Autumn.
