James Cameron’s sci-fi world, Avatar, is getting an MMORPG on mobile devices. Avatar: Reckoning will be a new multiplayer online role-playing shooter based on the world of Cameron’s Avatar for iOS and Android, which is scheduled to be released this year.
Players will create their own character and travel to never-before-seen parts of Pandora, learn about new Na’vi clans, fight the people of the RDA and meet other aliens. Players can do this in solo or multiplayer matches, level up their character, collect new gear and play single-player story missions, complete co-op missions and engage in PvP battles.
The game is built on Unreal Engine 4.
