Twitter Reacts to Ubisoft Forward showcasing Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

The Ubisoft Forward press conference shocked everyone when it released the first look of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. With four movie sequels planned to release this decade, it seems like the perfect time for Ubisoft to release a game about it. Following the release of the trailer, a lot of fans were excited about playing as a Na’Vi in the beautiful world of Pandora. This included Twitch streamer HasanAbi who was quite fascinated by these ‘blue aliens.’

Other than that, many fans were excited about the prospects of playing this game on the next-generation consoles. With such gorgeous visuals, it will be interesting to see how the game will play on the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X. It also remains to be seen how the game will use the many hardware features of these consoles including the controllers.

Along with that, many of them were also excited about playing the game involving one of most revered movie franchises of all time. But many of them felt that the developers were a bit too late at developing a title on a movie that released 12 years ago. Even then it looks like with sequels set to arrive soon, now is the perfect time for Ubisoft to release a game revolving around the Na’Vi and Pandora.

Additionally, the new game also brought back a lot of memories of fans regarding Ubisoft’s first attempt at an Avatar video game. The company released a prequel game titled James Cameron’s Avatar The Game which also released in 2009. It never gained the massive commercial success of the movie, and many fans believe that the upcoming title will be much better than it.

Twitter unhappy about developers working on the wrong Avatar franchise

Many players were happy about a video game about the James Cameron franchise. But some of them were also disappointed to know that Ubisoft wasn’t developing a title around The Last Airbender. Additionally, players voiced their disappointment at the French company for not creating a world around characters like Aang and many more.
