The first app to receive this feature is Terminator Genisys: Revolution, by Glu Mobile.
The app, which is the official game of the Terminator Genisys: Revolution movie, is likely to be available when the movie releases or during the same period. The description reads, “The year is 2028 and humanity is on the brink of extinction. Help John Connor in the war to save the human race in the official game of the new movie Terminator Genisys. Escape from the Skynet prison camp and fight the machines in this action-packed sci-fi shooter!”
The pre-registration process is anticipated to create more hype ahead of the official release for upcoming new apps or game titles which are gearing up to arrive on the Play Store. A report by Android Police points out that pre-registration is simply designed to give users a notification when the app is finally released, when it can be purchased and installed. If a user changes their mind, there is a one-tap un-register button which will remove the user from the list, adds the report.
