In classic Ubisoft style, the upcoming Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora comes in a range of different editions. One of which includes a season pass which users will be able to purchase separately later down the line. However, if you splurge on the Ultimate Edition or Gold Edition, Ubisoft has shared what you can expect from the upcoming DLC in the game in two DLC packs which expand the game’s story.
Both the Gold Edition and Ultimate Edition come with the Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Season Pass. The pass entitles you to access two DLC packs. The first is called “The Sky Breaker” and the second is “Secrets of the Spire”.
Ubisoft plans on releasing these DLC packs in “the summer” of 2024 (which is June – August for those who don’t use seasons as dates and believe the world is made up of more than just America), and the second in “fall” of 2024 (which is September – November).
Apart from the two main DLC packs, the Season Pass also includes a bonus quest called Familiar Echoes. It says players will have to “infiltrate a highly secured RDA military base and hack their classified data to sabotage them from the inside”. There’s also a Banshee Cosmetic Set which gives you visual bragging rights for owning the season pass.
- The Sky Breaker: A mysterious shadow looms in the sky, threatening the Na’vi clans below who are celebrating at their great festival of games. Face the RDA and protect the unity of the clans.
- Secrets of the Spires: Engage in epic aerial combat on your banshee to uncover the secrets of this new canyon region and restore the peace before it’s too late!
At the moment you can’t purchase the season pass for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. However, once the game launches this will likely change. You’ll also be able to purchase the two DLC packs separately at a much later date. Keep in mind that you’ll miss out on the extra mission and cosmetic pack if you end up purchasing the DLC separately.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is set to launch on 7 December for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. We recently went hands-on with the game and called it “Ubisoft’s best world to date”. It captures the feeling of living as Na’vi while also delivering a sort of Far Cry-esque action gameplay. You can read our full hands-on report here and watch it below.
