Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Characters & Lore
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has a highly intriguing take on its source material, as Ubisoft explains,
“Abducted by the human militaristic corporation known as the RDA, you, a Na’vi, were trained and molded to serve their purpose. Fifteen years later, you are free, but find yourself a stranger in your birthplace. Reconnect with your lost heritage, discover what it truly means to be Na’vi, and join other clans to protect Pandora from the RDA.”
While we have yet to know exactly how Frontiers of Pandora will integrate the franchise’s lore, the game seems set to provide a unique insight into the world of Avatar, and if executed correctly, could dominate the videogame sales charts, just as the films have conquered the box office.
