Ubisoft has issued multiple takedown requests against the @ScriptLeaksR6 account after the dataminer decided to share some new (and, apparently, real) details surrounding the publisher’s new game inspired by James Cameron’s hit film franchise, Avatar. According to the information that has since been copied on reddit, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora centers around a Na’vi child who was abducted by the RDA, and players will be able to customize their character and upgrade their skills and weapons, which are said to include both traditional Na’vi weapons (e.g., bows) and human weapons (e.g., assault rifles). Players can even capture and bond with banshees to aid in aerial combat and travel, it’s claimed. Taking place in the Western Frontier, a never-before-seen continent, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is currently in development at Massive Entertainment (The Division) for PC, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and Amazon Luna.
From a Ubisoft description:
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is a first person, action-adventure game developed by Massive Entertainment – a Ubisoft studio, in collaboration with Lightstorm Entertainment and Disney.
Built using the latest iteration of the Snowdrop engine, and developed exclusively for the new generation of consoles and PC, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora brings to life the alluring world of Pandora with all of its beauty and danger in an immersive, open world experience.
In this new, standalone story, play as a Na’vi and embark on a journey across the Western Frontier, a never-before-seen part of Pandora. Explore a living and reactive world inhabited by unique creatures and new characters, and push back the formidable RDA forces that threaten it.

According to ScriptLeaksR6, most of the game will be in first person and somewhat reminiscent of the Far Cry series.
The novelty from Ubisoft should be released before April next year. pic.twitter.com/pNIUN73bEf
