While it seems like we’ve been waiting for new Avatar content — whether it be a video game or a film — for an absolute age, James Cameron finally gave us a peek behind the curtain for his ambitious long-awaited sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water. However, it got us thinking, what’s going on with that Ubisoft Avatar game?
2022 is shaping up to be the year of the blue cat folk with, of course, the sequel to the biggest movie of all time, but more aligned with our interests here, a big triple-A open world. These types of games are a dime a dozen, especially from Ubisoft, but there is something exciting about Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora in that it is the first large-scale game in quite a long time based on a pre-existing world — and one from another medium no-less.
For those of you out there who are keen to take to the skies of Pandora, and find out what’s in store in this new digital adventure, then head on over to the Push Square YouTube channel, where you will find our breakdown of everything you need to know about Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it we cover elements such as gameplay features, details on the world, and where it all fits in the ongoing Avatar story.
Of course, this isn’t the first video game outing in the Avatar universe. Ubisoft once before travelled to Pandora with the largely dismissed James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game — that’s got a real ring to it, don’t you think? We’d imagine that this latest iteration, however, will stand a far greater chance of capturing the magic of the alien planet that raked in just shy of $3 billion at the box office.
As we wait for its release, let us know what you think of this surprising Ubisoft title. Are you even remotely interested in exploring the Avatar universe in video game form? Would you like to see some kind of multiplayer component worked into it? And do you have any concerns? Let us know down below!
