Massive Entertainment is best known as the team behind Tom Clancy’s The Division, but it’s tackling a different beast in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. This open-world action game opens in a new chapter in James Cameron’s wildly successful Avatar universe, and this new chapter in the mythos graces Game Informer‘s cover this month.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora – Exclusive Coverage Trailer
We visited Massive’s studio in Malmö, Sweden, to spend a couple of hours playing the game, which is set in the Kingler Forest, one of Frontier’s three regions. Our 12-page story also includes an exclusive breakdown of the game’s two other regions, the Upper Plains and the Clouded Forest, which we toured during our visit. We interviewed the game’s lead design to learn how Frontiers of Pandora came to be, what it was like working with James Cameron’s production studio Lightstorm, and get answers to some of the burning questions surrounding the game.
