March 1 (UPI) -- James Cameron and his production company Lightstorm Entertainment have teamed up with video game publisher Ubisoft to create a new title based on Avatar.
The project was announced Tuesday alongside a behind-the-scenes featurette featuring Cameron and members of Ubisoft studio Massive Entertainment, which is developing the game.
"With the power of Massive's Snowdrop game engine, and with the team's passion and obsessive focus on detail, we know they're the right group to bring the beauty and danger of Pandora to life," Cameron says in the clip, referencing the planet on which Avatar takes place.
"It should be the ultimate experience where you actually go to Pandora and where you can live your alternative life on the moon," added Massive Entertainment creative director Magnus Jansen.
Massive Entertainment developers also promised that the title will allow players "to choose how they want to experience this incredible universe."
Massive last worked on Ubisoft's open-world military shooter The Division.
The new Avatar game announcement comes as Pandora: The World of Avatar is set to open at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Orlando on May 27.
In terms of films, Cameron is said to have four sequels planned for Avatar, which was released in 2009.
