Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora | Hype Check​

Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora | Hype Check

With Ubisoft’s Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora now only a few weeks away, we wanted to touch base with some of our team to see how they’re feeling about the game. We’ve seen a range of media up to this point, from gameplay showcases and trailers, we’ve seen the press releases, and heard the talk, but how are we feeling? That’s where we’re bringing Hype Check into the mix; to get a gauge on what the prospective players are thinking. So here’s how we’re feeling about Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora

Matt Hewson

I have a little bit of an advantage here in that I have played three hours of Avatar at a press event and therefore have a good idea of what to expect. That playtime has led me to believe that at the very least, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is going to be a very solid video game that captures the beauty and feel of James Cameron’s while still giving players great mechanics to get behind. My biggest worry is the same worry I have for all of these big Ubisoft games and that is the game is going to be just jammed to the gills with unimportant side quests and collectibles. Hopefully, though, the side content is well-considered and not just there to pad out the game time.

 I haven’t loved either of the Avatar films to date, but I am interested by the world James Cameron has created, and I’m keen to explore it on my own terms. There isn’t a doubt in my mind that it’s going to be a visually impressive game, and that was enough to get people excited about the first film, so… why wouldn’t it be a success? If the world is interesting enough and the characters are solid, I’m not even bothered by the fact that it might be bloated by extra side quests and collectibles – there are worse things to be. I feel like I’m setting myself up for heartbreak by being excited for this game, but I’m feeling it anyway. I’m ready to be hurt by Frontiers of Pandora.

Unless the Fire Nation is attacking, I have zero experience with an Avatar property  – although I hear the next movie might go in that direction? Jokes aside, while I have no expectations surrounding either the game or the franchise it’s clear that both James Cameron and Ubisoft have what it takes to please an audience and make dump trucks of money while doing it. Too big to fail? Perhaps, but last I checked one of the biggest film franchises of the last 15 years saw Square Enix struggle to turn a profit, so I’m gonna stay a bit cooler on this one than my fellow Player2 writers.

Though I’ve not at all been crazy about the world that James Cameron has built, not disappointed, not overly enthusiastic either, just… whelmed; the game itself is another thing altogether. Ubisoft has presented the game very well to this point, with the game looking and feeling like a Far Cry game, and the gameplay loop of Far Cry really engages me most of the time. The world looks stunning, and the moment-to-moment seems pretty cool from all that I’ve seen and heard, so this could be the first foray into the world of Pandora that actually has me enthusiastic about exploring its intricacies.
