If the words “Avatar mobile MMORPG” excite you, boy do I have good news. Avatar: Reckoning, a multiplayer online role-playing game, is coming to iOS or Android in 2015. It’s based on James Cameron and Disney’s Avatar franchise.
Players will create their character (or Avatar avatar) and travel to never-before-seen parts of Pandora, meet new Na’vi clans, battle human troops from the RDA, and meet other alien creatures. You can play in solo or multiplayer, upgrade your character, equip new equipment, and take part in single-player or co-op story missions.
The game was also developed using Unreal Engine 4.
