James Cameron’s world of Avatar returns to video games in 2022

James Cameron's world of Avatar returns to video games in 2022

It’s OK if you forgot there was already an Avatar game released in 2009. James Cameron and Ubisoft would probably prefer it that way, honestly. But it did happen, and it wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms. The filmmaker and French publisher are teamed up again for another crack at the idea, in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

Ubisoft delivered a first look at the 2022 game to cap off its E3 2021 press conference. The purely cinematic look doesn’t offer a sense of the gameplay, but Cameron’s alien landscape along with the wide-open trailer at least suggests that Frontiers will offer some kind of riff on the publisher’s more recent takes on vast and lengthy “open world” games (think Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla).

There’s surely more to come on this one, and with Avatar 2 currently set for release on Dec. 16, 2022, it’s a safe bet that this game, direct tie-in or not, will arrive around the same time.
