More than four years after its announcement, we finally get our first look at Ubisoft’s Massive Avatar game, which will arrive in 2022.
Revealed during today’s Ubisoft Forward E3 conference, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora takes us back to Pandora, with the trailer offering a glimpse into various beautiful biomes. It will be a first-person open-world action-adventure game set on the Western Frontier, an all-new part of Pandora featuring a living and responsive world. This will once again pit the Na’vi against humans and their robots.
The Avatar game was first announced in 2017, promising to use the Snowdrop engine designed for The Division to “expand and deepen the Avatar universe in exciting and innovative ways with the movies.” The team at Massive have worked hand-in-hand with the production company of Avatar director James Cameron to create a game that promises to be very different from The Division, focusing on “the world, discovery and nature”. The game was postponed to 2022 last year.
This is far from the only ongoing licensed project from Ubisoft Massive. While using the Tom Clancy license for The Division, he’s also making an open-world Star Wars game.
