Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, the latest open-world action-adventure title from Ubisoft and based on the popular movie franchise by James Cameron, is finally out this weekend for current-gen consoles and PC. Players who purchased the Gold Edition or Ultimate Edition of the game or pre-ordered it online received some additional content that you can unlock from the beginning of the game, though only after a lengthy opening chapter. Here’s how you can get that premium and pre-order content.
As for what you’ll get in each premium edition of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, this includes cosmetics (as “layered” options) that you can apply to a variety of weapons, armour pieces and assorted gear. In the case of the Gold Edition, you get 1 unique Banshee skin, 1 character gear set and 1 weapon in the form of a moderately powerful bow. The Ultimate Edition contains all the content from the Gold Edition but includes a number of other skins, sets and cosmetics. Basic pre-orders include 1 cosmetic set and 1 premium weapon skin. Read here for everything you get in each edition.
How to Claim Gold, Ultimate and Pre-Order Content in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
The first thing you’ll obviously need to do is download the game. Those who purchased the Ultimate Edition will immediately get a Digital Artbook that you can access via your Ubisoft+ account. If you pre-ordered the game or purchased any of its premium editions, the content will be unlocked in-game but only once you’ve passed a certain point in the opening hours of the story.
You’ll first need to complete the initial tutorial section where you have to escape an RDA facility after creating your custom Na’vi. Once you enter the open world of Pandora, your first task is to track down an injured ally, So’lek, who is close by. Follow the stream and you’ll eventually run into him next to some RDA crates and a research station. He’ll hand you a bow and point you in the direction to acquire some healing ingredients for him, which is also nearby close to the river.
Return to him, defeat the RDA soldiers and give him the ingredients to get him back on his feet. So’lek will point you to a camp nearby, which requires some platforming up the side of a waterfall. Head there and enter the facility to find some friendly Na’vi faces and humans. From here, simply go through the motions, watch the cutscenes then complete all the necessary dialogue to unlock your Gold, Ultimate and pre-order items.
In the Character section of the menu, the bonus items will now be unlocked as you scroll over the weapons, armour and gear. Most of them will be cosmetics (that can be applied as layered pieces) but you’ll also get some decent armour, a gun and a good bow which will carry you through the next few chapters until you unlock more powerful gear and weapons.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is now available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
