Ubisoft Joins Forces with James Cameron on Avatar

James Cameron’s movie Avatar is being made into a videogame by Ubisoft, the publisher’s just announced. The game is scheduled to release alongside the movie... in May 2009. Avatar tells the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people. Cheers, Mr Press Release. Sadly, there’s sod all actual game details at the moment, but James Cameron had this to say: "For the movie Avatar we are creating a world rich in character, detail, conflict and cultural depth. It has the raw material for a game that the more demanding gamers of today will want to get their hands on - one that is rich in visuals and ideas, and challenging in play. "I told the Ubisoft team I wanted them to be free to do their very best work, and not think of this as a movie-based game. They responded with a fully realized presentation which captured the soul of the world and the characters, while promising to be a knockout game on its own terms. Their passion inspired my confidence that they are going to do something transcendental." WETA Digital, which did all the special effects for Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings movies and his King Kong flick, is involved with the movie but it’s not clear whether its talents will also be used for the Avatar game.
