Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Gameplay Screenshots Leak

Several gameplay screenshots from Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora made their way online in an unofficial capacity thanks to one avid dataminer. This development arrives mere days after some Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora pre-order bonuses leaked, suggesting Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft’s upcoming game is currently on course to hits its target release window, given how its advanced orders will apparently be going live shortly.


Announced way back in 2017, the next open-world action-adventure game from the developers of Far Cry 3 and The Division franchise was originally scheduled to release alongside Avatar: The Way of Water, the second installment in James Cameron’s sci-fi series which premiered in December 2022. However, Ubisoft delayed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora during the preceding summer. The move wasn’t accompanied by a new release date or specific reasoning for the postponement, beyond a vague indication that the project simply won’t be able to meet its previous deadline.

More recently, dataminer ScriptLeaksR6 took to Twitter to share some newly uncovered information about the game; after reporting on the aforementioned pre-order bonuses, the same source has now also unearthed several gameplay screenshots from Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. One of those stills shows a first-person shootout between a player-controlled Na’vi and the Mitsubishi MK-6 Amplified Mobility Platform. While the said mech enemy appears to be a fairly authentic recreation of the so-called AMP suit users from Cameron’s films, some fans on social media already voiced concerns that the perspective of the image is wrong in the sense that Na’vi are meant to be much taller than the seemingly 6-something-foot character from the screenshot.

The second unearthed still from the game that was seemingly pulled from a cutscene alleviates those concerns, ostensibly depicting a correctly-sized blue-skinned Pandora native riding a mountain banshee. Apart from promising that a gameplay video leak is coming “soon,” the dataminer behind these screenshots, who previously uncovered the existence of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, also reported that Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will seemingly be played entirely from a first-person perspective. Given that claim and the leaked screenshots, it would appear the game will mix FPS gameplay with third-person cutscenes like Far Cry 6 did in order to deliver a fairly cinematic experience.

Apart from Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Massive Entertainment is currently also working on an unannounced Star Wars game rumored to feature a massive open galaxy in the vein of No Man’s Sky. Unlike the Avatar tie-in, however, the Swedish studio’s first-ever Star Wars game is still believed to be years away from releasing.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is coming to PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S sometime during Ubisoft’s next fiscal year, which ends in March 2024.
