Press Release from Ubisoft
LOS ANGELES -- JUNE 1, 2009 -- Today at the Electronics and Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles Ubisoft revealed new product details for JAMES CAMERON'S AVATAR: THE GAME. Making a surprise appearance during Ubisoft's Press Conference earlier in the day, James Cameron introduced the first details for AVATAR: THE GAME along with Yannis Mallat, President of Ubisoft Montreal.
The game will take you deep into the heart of Pandora, an alien planet that is beyond imagination. Gamers will encounter the Na'vi, Pandora's indigenous people and discover creatures and other wildlife the likes of which have never been seen in the world of video games before. When conflict erupts between the RDA Corporation, a space-faring consortium in search of valuable resources, and the Na'vi, players will find themselves thrust into a fight for the heart of a planet and the fate of a civilization.
"Technically, we have a lot in common with Ubisoft and the game world," said Cameron during the press conference. "We utilized highly sophisticated technologies in creating AVATAR so, when it came to choosing a game company, I wanted a partner that would not only be inspired creatively by the world of AVATAR but would have the capacity to keep up with the challenging demands of its technological needs. Ubisoft was that company."
JAMES CAMERON'S AVATAR: THE GAME will ship December 2009 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system, the Wii(TM) home video game system from Nintendo, the Nintendo DS(TM) system, the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system and the PC.
JAMES CAMERON'S AVATAR: THE GAME will be shown to select media in stunning stereoscopic 3D at Ubisoft's booth (South Hall, Booth #1022) during E3 June 2-4, 2009. Thanks to Panasonic, Ubisoft will be showing JAMES CAMERON'S AVATAR: THE GAME using Panasonic's 3D Full HD Plasma Home Theater System, enabling the viewing of true-to-life 3D Full 1080p HD images by using a specially configured Panasonic 103-inch Plasma HDTV, capable of distributing full High Definition (1920 x 1080 pixels) images separately to the left eye and right eye of the viewer.
