 Avatar Frontiers of Pandora is an upcoming open-world game based on James Cameron’s 2009 film and its sequels. Here’s everything we know about this exciting new chapter in the Avatar franchise, from trailers through to platforms, setting, and its release date.

The first of these just made waves at the box office with the record-breaking follow-up: The Way of the Water. However, the following trip to the Moon of Pandora will likely be in video game form, as ‘Avatar Frontiers of Pandora’ is set to be released in the near future.
