During the latest State of Play presentation, Ubisoft unveiled a new story trailer for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, revealing more gameplay and new Na’vi clans.
We’re just a few months away from returning to Pandora for an all new story that WE get to play through. Thanks to a new trailer from Sony’s State of Play, we’ve got a fresh look at Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and more details on the story and new clans we’ll be interacting with.
In Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, you will play as a Na’vi who was abducted as an infant by the RDA and trained in The Ambassador Program (TAP) to serve human interests on Pandora. When the RDA evacuated Pandora during the Battle of the Hallelujah Mountains (as seen in the first Avatarmovie), you were put into emergency cryosleep. You wake up 15 years later, finally free from the RDA, but lost and unfamiliar with your home world.
You set out on a journey to discover the world that was kept from you, meeting other Na’vi clans and learning about Na’vi culture. You discover that you are a member of the respected Sarentu clan, believed to have disappeared years before. As you journey across the Western Frontier, you will meet the Aranahe, a clan of artisans known for their weaving skills; the Zeswa, a proud nomadic clan that lives in symbiosis with gigantic beasts called Zakru; and the Kame’tire, a reclusive, enigmatic clan skilled in healing and potion-making.
As a rite of passage, you will bond with your own banshee, or ikran (as the Na’vi say). Together, you will be able to explore Pandora from a new perspective: that of the skies. You can also fish with them, perform acrobatics above the clouds, and fight against the RDA together. You can also expand your exploration possibilities on the ground by learning to ride a direhorse.
Once again, the RDA poses a threat to Pandora’s flourishing ecosystems. With your knowledge of human technology and weapons as well as your Na’vi background and skills, you are uniquely equipped to push back against the RDA. It is up to you to gain the trust of other Na’vi clans to rally them to protect Pandora because working together, the Na’vi are stronger.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is set to hit PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X, and PCs on December 7, 2023.
