Ubisoft closed its Ubisoft For­ward E3 2021 show­case with a first look at its Avatar title, which now has an offi­cial name. Avatar: Fron­tiers of Pan­do­ra is based on James Cameron’s film fran­chise, and built on Ubisoft­’s Snow­drop engine. The game is expect­ed to release some­time in 2022.

Fron­tiers is a first-per­son action-adven­ture game and Ubisoft is col­lab­o­rat­ing with Light­storm Enter­tain­ment and Dis­ney on devel­op­ment. It’s a stand­alone sto­ry that puts you in the role of Na’vi and sends you on an adven­ture across the West­ern Fron­tier, a “nev­er-before-seen” sec­tion of Pandora.

Details about Avatar: Fron­tiers of Pan­do­ra are scarce, but Ubisoft has stat­ed that the game will fea­ture “a liv­ing and reac­tive world inhab­it­ed by unique crea­tures and new char­ac­ters.” The goal of your jour­ney is to rid the plan­et of the mil­i­taris­tic RDA forces. 

Ubisoft did say that Fron­tiers of Pan­do­ra is devel­oped “exclu­sive­ly for the new gen­er­a­tion of con­soles and PC.” The com­pa­ny pre­vi­ous­ly announced that the avatar game is being devel­oped by its Mas­sive stu­dio, the same one cur­rent­ly work­ing on an open-world Star Wars game. Man­ag­ing direc­tor at Mas­sive, David Polfeldt, said the stu­dio is big enough to work on both games simultaneously.

We are always look­ing to col­lab­o­rate with fel­low cre­ators to bring play­ers mem­o­rable expe­ri­ences and immerse them in incred­i­ble worlds, as shown by the amaz­ing col­lab­o­ra­tions we have with Light­storm, Lucas­film, and Dis­ney. Togeth­er, we are focused on projects that push the bound­aries of open-worlds and play­er immer­sion to the lim­it, and that direc­tion suits the rich uni­vers­es of Avatar and Star Wars extreme­ly well.”
