The Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora DLC and season pass finally got detailed.
The upcoming Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is shaping up to be a pretty expansive experience for fans of the nearly 15-year-old franchise. With the second movie, Avatar: The Way of Water, hitting theaters last year and Disney embracing the films more and more, a proper video game was only a matter of time that wasn’t just a rehash of the films.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is a fast-approaching first-person, open-world game set on (as you likely guessed by the title) Pandora, Avatar’s beautiful jungle paradise of a planet. The game will be set after the events of the first film but on a completely different side of the planet.
While the events of the first movie happened, it doesn’t mean that everyone on the tribal planet knows what went down. This means that the planet’s blue-skinned inhabitants, the Na’vi, are just trying to protect their home from the invading RDA corporation. You play as one of those Na’vi.
But, with such a big game, there’s always going to be additional content post-release. Ubisoft previously announced a season pass for Frontiers of Pandora but didn’t offer many details on what that included.
The season pass includes 2 story packs, a bonus quest, and the resistance bundle.
The first story pack, The Sky Breaker, set to come out next summer, will have players “face a mysterious shadow.” The second pack, Secrets of the Spires, focuses more on “epic aerial battles” and is due out next fall.
The bonus mission, Familiar Echoes, tasks the player to infiltrate an RDA base to sabotage their databases. Additionally, the aforementioned “resistance” bundle is a special cosmetic for your equipment and banshee mount, the flying, bird-like creatures of the franchise.
Currently, the only way to get the season pass is by grabbing the Gold or Ultimate editions of the game, which pops the $69.99 game up to $109.99 and $129.99 respectively. That will likely change after launch, though.
You can grab the game when it launches on December 7th.
