Play OverviewPlay Overview

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora (2023) is an adventure in James Cameron's Avatar universe where you play a child caught between two worlds fighting to protect your planet from human colonists. Play involves exploring the large open world, interacting with characters, creatures, and plants to defeat the invaders with guns, bows and arrows, and traps. Although leaning on its film licence, the game also offers a world that responds to your actions and invites you to take advantage of both your native and human technology.

You play a Na'vi from the planet of Pandora, abducted from your home by humans at the time of the first film and forced to train as a soldier. You wake from a 15-year forced sleep to find that the humans have returned to find precious materials and are wreaking havoc. Your task is to use your Na'vi and Human knowledge to defeat the invaders and save your home.

Play involves exploring the dense forests, arid plains, tall mountains to deep gorges to find the tribes and learn new skills. You attack and drive out humans from their many bases scattered across the world from land and air, using your flying mount to navigate the skies.

As you progress you learn to combine human weapons and technology and the more primitive but just-as-deadly Na'vi tools to fight. When you conquer an outpost, the surrounding environment begins to heal and reclaim the land, yielding fruits and valuable resources you can use to grow in strength.

The result is a game that draws on classic experiences like Far Cry and Halo, with their focus on exploration and combination of weapons, respectively. It offers you the chance to explore an interactive and immersive Pandora for yourself, witnessing the lush landscapes, flora, and fauna up close. Seeing the world respond to your actions as nature rebuilds itself over defeated outposts is both hugely rewarding and enables further progression as you harvest the resources to grow in strength.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 16 for Strong Violence. This game features strong violence. Players can defend themselves from enemies using a wide variety of weapons, including longbows, assault rifles, shotguns and rocket launchers. Reactions to violence are realistic, although there are no blood effects. Predatory animals can also attack characters, although the violence is also non-realistic. The bodies of defeated characters remain visible for the rest of each level, although the bodies cannot be further injured. This game offers players the opportunity to purchase in-game items, such as a season pass, additional DLC, and token packs which can be used in game. Some parents or carers may want to be aware of this. Parents, carers, or other responsible adults should check to see what is being offered before making any purchase on behalf of a child. It should be noted that the game can still be played without the need to purchase such items. There is occasional use of strong language, including '*!@?*', '*!@?*' and '*!@?*'.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB TEEN for Violence, Mild Blood, Language. Players use arrows, explosives, and machine guns to attack enemies (e.g., soldiers, drones, mechs) in frenetic combat. A handful of areas allow players to use stealth tactics to infiltrate bases and attack soldiers. Firefights are highlighted by realistic gunfire, cries of pain, and explosions. One scene depicts blood smeared/splattered on a cliff near the corpses of soldiers. The words “sh*t” and “a*shole” appear in the game.
