There are surprises at E3, and then there are SURPRISES at E3. This is the latter. In an announcement that I assure you nobody saw coming, Ubisoft announced a next-gen only game called Avatar: Frontiers: of Pandora. Helmed by Massive Entertainment (the team behind The Division franchise), the game will be headed our way in 2022. Here’s what we know so far:
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora™ is a first person, action-adventure game developed by Massive Entertainment – a Ubisoft studio, in collaboration with Lightstorm Entertainment and Disney.
Built using the latest iteration of the Snowdrop engine, and developed exclusively for the new generation of consoles and PC, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora brings to life the alluring world of Pandora with all of its beauty and danger in an immersive, open world experience.
In this new, standalone story, play as a Na’vi and embark on a journey across the Western Frontier, a never-before-seen part of Pandora. Explore a living and reactive world inhabited by unique creatures and new characters, and push back the formidable RDA forces that threaten it.
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more, but suffice it to say this was a great “one more thing” for this year’s E3. Did it surprise you? Join us in our Discord and let’s talk about it!
