Big things are starting to happen again around the Avatar brand. In March, the 2009 movie returned to today’s highest-grossing movie spot, thanks to its use in Chinese cinemas, topping $2.847 billion (59.7 billion kroner) and surpassing Avengers: Endgame. After so many years, its long-planned sequels are finally coming to a close, and now we know they’ll be accompanied by an ambitious video game.
It will be called Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and is backed by the French company Ubisoft, which presented it on Saturday evening as part of the Ubisoft Forward promotion. It has been rumored for a long time, but only now Ubisoft has shown the first stills and release date, which is supposed to be 2022. It can be expected that it will most likely be its end, as on December 16, 2022 Avatar 2 will finally appear in cinemas.
We don’t know much about the game itself yet. It was developed by the Swedish studio Massive Entertainment, which belongs to Ubisoft and has the Tom Clancy’s The Division or Far Cry 3 series. Now it is also making a game with an open world of the Star Wars environment.
Also, Avatar promises a wonderful and rich world of Pandora, which is to respond to your actions and be full of exotic animals. You can see what it would look like in the first trailer, which shows Pandora’s lush vegetation in all its beauty.
You will play as Na’vi, one of the original inhabitants of the planet, and you will have to explore the hitherto undiscovered parts of Pandora in a story different from the movie. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will be released on the next generation console PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, as well as on PC, Stadii and Amazon Luna streaming services.
Avatar broke into cinemas on December 10, 2009 and became MB. At the time, James Cameron’s lavish film was mainly fascinated by the visual aspect and completely sold out the 3D viewing that was starting at the time in the cinema, as it was one of the few films that could make good use of it. It was not cheap, it cost about $ 240 million, but given its earnings, it was convenient to earn it yourself.
So it was clear that the movie would go on. But Cameron refused to compromise with just one and began filming two at a time. Additionally, their debut has been complicated by the coronavirus pandemic, so Avatar 2 won’t arrive until the end of next year and Avatar 3 in December 2024.
Over time, Cameron’s plans to become truly paranoid have swelled, and he now expects the fourth and fifth installments to be two years apart. However, he admitted that it will depend on how the second and third number succeeds in cinemas. However, since the first avatar broke all records, he probably had nothing to fear.
And what about the game? Massive Entertainment has a good reputation, so you can expect a high-quality title. And at least better than it was in the competing flagship Avengers movie.
He underwent video game processing last year and was inconsistently accepted. The game, which cost more than $100 million, sold poorly and Estimated Square Enix studio has spent more than $60 million on it.
