This years E3 event brought with it the surprising announcement of Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora based on James Cameron’s Avatar movie.
Avatar was one of the highest grossing movies of all time, however the upcoming title will stray away from the original plot of the movie as it is set to feature a ‘brand new story’.
Vice president of Disney and Pixar Games, Luigi Priore said in a recent interview with VentureBeat:
“here was a time 15 or 20 years ago where playing the movie was something. You bought the game and played the movie. Things like the classic Aladdin game on Sega Genesis. You played the film.”
“That was popular at the time, but gamers expect more now. They want to interact with their favorite characters and worlds, but they want to play new stories and do new things with those characters and worlds.”
The upcoming title will lean towards exploring new science fiction worlds instead of reliving the original storyline.
Priore followed up by saying “The whole idea is to have it be part of the storyline of that giant franchise on Pandora, but it’s not a ‘play the movie’ game. It’s an all new open world, new characters”.
“That’s why it’s called Frontiers of Pandora. It takes place on another frontier, another area of the moon of Pandora.”
There isn’t any further details on just what we can expect as of yet, so fans will have to hang on until further announcements revealing what is in store when the game eventually releases.
