James Cameron’s Avatar is getting a mobile MMO shooter titled Avatar: Reckoning in 2022


Disney, Tencent, Archosaur Games and Lightstorm Entertainment announced Avatar: Reckoning, a new video game based on James Cameron’s Avatar film franchise, in a press release released Thursday. The newly unveiled game will be a massively multiplayer online shooter, and it’s slated for release in 2022, according to the announcement.

According to the press release, the game will allow players to take control of an Avatar as they explore Pandora and battle RDA troops seeking to exploit the planet’s resources. The game will be built on Unreal Engine 4 and will also feature a single-player campaign, as well as cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes.

The announcement was accompanied by a tweet from the official Avatar Twitter account that featured concept art depicting an armed Na’vi soldier overlooking the lush and expansive landscape of Pandora.

The game’s developer, Archosaur Games, has a history of developing mobile titles. Some of the studio’s past works include Dragon Raja, World of Kings, and Naval Creed. Avatar: Reckoning’s editor, Level Infinite, was established by Tencent in December 2021, and it has since backed games like Metal: Hellsinger and GTFO.

It is the second known Avatar video game to be in development. In 2021, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora was announced for a 2022 release. It should be noted that the second Avatar movie is also set to release on December 16, 2022.
