Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Was Made In First-Person For Incredible Immersion

But Players Unhappy With First-Person Perspective!

Story Highlights
  • Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is still a month away from its release.
  • The developers have elaborated on the decision to provide a first-person experience after many were unhappy with this camera perspective.
  • The studio wants players to experience the world of Pandora more than the characters.

While 2023 has delivered many great and unique games, players are yet to experience the beautiful world of Pandora brought to life in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Fortunately, the game is quickly approaching its 7 December release date.

Following the recent wave of previews, the game has been surrounded by positivity, garnering praise for its immersive and detailed world. However, some fans have not been happy with the decision to make this game a first-person shooter.

While discussing this camera perspective, the developers claimed they picked a first-person camera over a third-person view to emphasize a more immersive experience in Pandora.

Why it matters: This choice was always considered odd. However, the explanation shows that the developers are confident and do not have any regrets.

During a recent interview with IGN, the director of the game, Ditte Deenfeldt, explained the decision to make Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora a first-person shooter. He stated:

“Because we want you to feel immersed, we want you to feel immersed and feel like you’re really on Pandora.”

While fans want to experience playing as a Na’vi, the developer confirmed that this was not a difficult decision to make as it was decided early on in development.

Creative director Magnus Jansen added that this decision was in complete agreement with Lightstorm, the studio behind the Avatar films, which is also helping with the game’s development.

Ultimately, this choice was made to prioritize Pandora over the Na’vi. At its heart, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is about its massive world, leaving players to explore it at their own pace.

This is also why the studio has decided not to rely on markers as much, encouraging players to use landmarks for organic exploration. The world’s beauty is further bolstered by the gorgeous visuals, but this leads to heft system requirements.

Still, the game isn’t locked to a first-person camera.

Players can experience parts of the game in third-person, particularly when flying through the skies. This choice was also a deliberate one since the team believes the world looks much more beautiful from a third-person camera during flight.

While the developers have no regrets about the decision to create a first-person shooter, this perspective has earned the game comparisons with the Far Cry franchise. However, early previews suggest that Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is much more than a Far Cry clone.
