New details surrounding Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world adventure Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora have leaked online including the game’s plot, combat, and crafting system.
The news comes from prominent Ubisoft leaker ScriptLeaksR6 who created a Twitter thread filled with details that appear to have been taken from the game’s product sheet. The game will center around a Na’vi child who was abducted by the RDA and trained to serve them in their conquest of Pandora. The plot largely seems like a copy and paste of the first movie as it focuses on the unnamed protagonist reconnecting with their heritage and clans to protect Pandora.
Here’s what the alleged game details state:
Harness your incredible strength and agility while customizing your character; crafting new gear, and upgrading skills and weapons to fit your playstyle.
MASTER MULTIPLE COMBAT STYLES
Fight off the dangers of Pandora as you embrace the precision of traditional Na’vi weapons, including your bow and spear-thrower, or leverage your human training with more destructive weapons, such as assault rifles and shotguns.
SOAR THE SKIES
Capture and bond with your personal banshee—a large, dragon-like winged predator that will give you an edge in aerial combat and can be used for traveling long distances.
EXPLORE A WORLD OF WONDER & DANGER
Unfold the epic wonders of the Western Frontier – a never-before-seen continent of Pandora. Journey through beautiful yet unpredictable open-world regions, where lowering your guard can lead to deadly mistakes.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will reportedly offer multiple combat styles and give players the choice to use traditional Na’vi weapons like spears or bows, or embrace the brutal training methods and weapons of the RDA which includes shotguns and assault rifles. Skill trees and customization will also factor into the game as players upgrade their weapons, characters and craft new materials.
As seen in the First Look trailer last year, players will be able to navigate the world of Pandora with the help of the Banshee which can be also used in aerial combat. While there aren’t too many details about the game’s open world, the leak does offer a tease of the sense of scope the game will offer. The new continent being introduced in Frontiers of Pandora will offer multiple regions for players to explore which will be filled with stunning visuals and the unique threats and wildlife of Pandora.
Given the fact that the information from the leak seems to have been taken from a press release, it’s a fair assumption that Ubisoft will be offering a new look at Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora in the near future. The game was first announced in 2017 and aimed to release in the 2022-23 fiscal year but it’s since been pushed back to a 2023-24 fiscal year release window which indicates the game will be released between April 2023 and March 2024.
