Not only is Ubisoft’s Avatar game alive and kicking, but it’s also out next year. Ubisoft rounded out its Ubisoft Forward showcase at E3 with a new trailer, confirming the upcoming PC game is called Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, and it’s out in 2022. We don’t have a more specific release date than that right now – but hey! New trailer.
The trailer kicks off by taking us through some lush greenery in a rainforest. We catch a glimpse of some exotic bugs before getting a shot of the familiar Na’vi, which is a tall, blue alien creature you’ll recognise from James Cameron’s flick. We then see some more beasts in a sunlit forest before witnessing some jellyfish-like creatures floating through a dark, neon-lit section of the same world. After seeing some Na’vi running among the creatures that inhabit their world, we cut to shots of humans and their mechs in a darker, dimly lit bunker – as if it was a different world altogether.
As the trailer reaches its climax and end, we see humans clash with the Na’vi and the other animals who inhabit the planet. One leaps off a cliff to flee from an attack chopper, only to be saved by a flying creature who whisks them away. After some more duelling, we get our release date and name confirmation.
