An Interactive Entertainment Company, Kabam now collaborates with the Lightstrom Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox Film to construct “A massively multiplayer mobile strategy game” based on the James Cameron’s Sci-fi movie Avatar.
The new mobile strategic game is debuted before the Avatar sequel 2 which is presently set to release for 2018. The mobile game will combine the characters and environment from the film with the innovative game features and design.
Kent Wakeford, COO at Kabam explains that, “the idea beyond the game is to extend the big screen and create an experience that will be true to what James Cameron did in making the most technologically advanced film of its time.”
Wakeford also announced that Kabam plans to update the game continuously with the release of the Avatar sequels scheduled to be release in December 2018, 2020, 2022 and 2023.
Jon Landau, Avatar producer and COO of Lightstorm Entertainment in a statement said, “Kabam has an excellent reputation for building compelling mobile games that explore detailed worlds, which makes them an ideal partner for our franchise.”
“I think science fiction can be a great metaphor for the world in which we live,” added Jon Landau. “As people play this game, I want them to have choices, just like they have in life. The choices you make in a game create different experiences for you — some for the better, some for the worse. It’s about engaging people in this world but never losing sight of the ethos of ‘Avatar.'”
World popular mobile games like Star-Wars, Marvel, Hobbit, Avengers, Fast & Furious are the games released earlier by Kabam. The average cost of the Kabam’s previous titles was $14 million and it was explained by Wakeford, that the budget of the new Avatar mobile game is estimated to more than the older games.
Looking back to the first Avatar film, it was released in the year 2009 and it still holds the record as the highest-grossing film in the world which collected over $2.8 billion. According to NBCNewYork news, Walt Disney World is set to open an “Avatar”-themed land in 2017, while Dark Horse Comics is working on an “Avatar” series.
