Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is an action-adventure game set in the never-before-explored Western Frontier. With it being published by Ubisoft, we’re all wondering if the typical open-world Ubisoft magic is applied to this continent of Pandora that the game is set on.
If you’re not familiar with Ubisoft’s work, they usually go for open-world games. Frontiers of Pandora is also being developed by Massive Entertainment, the same ones who worked on The Division, and it’s highly probable that the game will feature an open environment.
Is Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Open World?
Yes, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is an open world game that’s set on the Western Frontier continent. You can freely explore the continent by land or by air at your own pace while interacting with the local wildlife.
The Western Frontier is the main setting of Frontiers of Pandora and has never been explored before in any of the previous entries, not even in the movies. You play as a natural Na’vi who’s been kidnapped from their tribe at a young age and must fight the RDA for the freedom of Pandora. You can use a variety of guerilla tactics to free your land, which include fighting with RDA weapons and flying with Banshees.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora’s open world will also feature local wildlife you can interact with. These wildlife will interact with the environment depending on whether they’re peacefully grazing around, running for their lives, or fighting back. You can even use Banshees to traverse the skies, which one of the DLCs planned for the future will center around.
In fact, one of the main reasons why Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora won’t be coming to PS4 and Xbox One is because of the heavy demands of its open world. Particularly with flight, which requires a lot of good hardware that previous console generations didn’t have.
So once you hop into the open world of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora this December 7th, you’ll see the beauty of the Western Frontier for yourself. The only thing that’s plaguing it is the presence of the colonizing RDA.
