It looks like our first, albeit small and low-quality, look at proper in-game gameplay of Ubisoft’s upcoming Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has arrived by way of a leaked screenshot.
Twitter user @ScriptLeaksR6, who’s usually known for leaking Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, has dropped a few bits of news around the game, based on James Cameron’s blockbuster film franchise which saw its second entry premiere in December last year.
Following that, just recently the user also posted what looks to be an in-game screenshot, showing a first-person camera from the viewpoint of a gun-wielding Na’Vi facing down a human mechsuit.
Script also claims that Frontiers of Pandora will still run on Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine, the same that powered The Division, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope and will reportedly be used for Ubisoft’s untitled future Star Wars game.
Frontiers of Pandora was originally supposed to release in line with the second film’s release last year, but was subsequently delayed with a tentative release between April 2023 and 2024.
Speaking about the delay at the time, Ubisoft CEO Ybes Guillemot had said that “We want to make Avatar a video game industry brand. It is important for us to come up with something that is perfect”.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, is an open world, first-person action- adventure game. It’s in development by Massive who had previously developed The Division. It’s set to release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
Ubisoft just announced it’s holding its own Ubisoft Forward Live showcase in lieu of an E3 appearance in June, so if we don’t see more from the game before then, we’ll likely see it here.
