hard to tell what this really is

looks like a retread of the crappy movie...tie in for Avatar 2 which hits theaters in December 2022...the movie had pretty visuals with a dumb story, hopefully the game doesn't follow that same pattern

Getting a HZD type vibe.....could potentially be good, but it's a Ubi game so just as strong likelihood of it being trash.

Ubisoft will leverage Massive's Snowdrop engine to create NPCs that more realistically understand and react to changes in the world around them, like weather, or your own progression through the game...

I don't think I've ever, not once in my whole lifetime, saw marketing about "advanced AI that behaves realistically and does XYZ" that actually panned out in the final product lol

I still think this game looks cool though. I'm not an Avatar hater like many, on the contrary I think it's a cool and colorful sci fi world.

I think Far Cry 1 and FEAR 1 hyped it up pre-release and delivered...but yeah it's rare and I'm not holding my breath...but if they do happen to nail it then combined with the gorgeous-ness of the Snowdrop engine this could be a graphics powerhouse (ray-tracing also confirmed)

Looks good to me. Looks like it may be sort of God of War ish or even call of duty like. I probably wouldn't buy it as I'm not into these types of games but it looks good for those that do.

It's just marketing hyping the AI to sound more advanced than it is. ”reacts to weather” is just putting some logic to stay out of the rain in an if statement.

The Half-Life box said something like ”AI so advanced enemies can smell you” which in reality just meant they didn't implement line of sight on the AI so they have wall hacks.

sounds like it could be one of the best looking PC games of all time...that alone makes me interested- Snowdrop engine, ray-tracing etc

Frontiers of Pandora will be a 'brand new story with new characters'

Instead of re-treading forgotten ground, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is going to explore the "amazing science fiction world" the original Avatar built that Luigi Priore describes as "a great playground to play in"

"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," Priore continues. "That’s why it’s called Frontiers of Pandora. It takes place on another frontier, another area of the moon of Pandora"...
