During Ubisoft Forward, Ubisoft revealed an upcoming action-adventure game based on James Cameron’s 2009 movie Avatar, titled Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. They revealed a short trailer showing off the environment and worldview, which follows the general gist of the movie. Massive Entertainment, in collaboration with Lightstorm Entertainment and Disney, developed the game.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will be a first-person action-adventure game. Though the background is the same as the movie and follows the Na’vi conflict with the RDA, the story is an original one separate from Avatar. Aside from action elements, the game also involves exploring the environment of Pandora. The player Na’vi has to journey across the never-seen-before Western Frontier, where they will meet a variety of new characters and creatures to interact with.
Avatar originally came out in 2009 and became the highest-grossing film at that time. It beat out James Cameron’s other blockbuster hit, Titanic, which had been the highest-grossing film for twelve years. Though Cameron has teased four Avatar sequels for years, delays to refine the technology have kept them out of theaters.
Other games featuring during the Ubisoft Forward stream include Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, and Far Cry 6.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will release in 2022 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Windows PC, Stadia, and Luna.
