Here’s why ‘Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora’ is next-gen only

If you are wondering why Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora wasn’t announced for older consoles, Ubisoft has an answer for that.

During a recent interview, Ubisoft Massive members explained why Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is next-gen only.

‘Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora’ will be high on graphics!

During the E3 2021 presentation, Ubisoft surprised everyone with a maiden reveal of a big-budget Avatar game.

Though an original title existed years ago, this new project will experience for those who still love James Cameron’s all-time biggest blockbuster.

And because Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will provide an experience in its entirety, it’s going to be available only for the next-gen consoles.

It implies that the title will release only for Xbox Series X|S and PS5. And thus, the owners of PS4 and Xbox One will be left a bit disappointed.

However, Ubisoft has explained why they are keeping Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora only for the next-gen devices.

Speaking with IGN, creative director Magnus Jansen and technical director of programming Nikolay Stefanov gave various reasons.

They mentioned that the game would have insane visual details. And to render them, you will need high-end machines.

Another reason is that the title will focus heavily on flying mechanics. And to achieve a constant flow of fantastic output while exploring the landscapes of Pandora, the next-gen consoles will be a key.

It’s also because Flying Banshees were an essential aspect of the 2009 movie.

Then there’s also the point of processing power, as expected. With the latest devices, players will run the upcoming title with ease and without any issue in the gameplay. And that’s why the game will only arrive for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
