As you can see in the video above, Deenfeldt said, "There [are] completely new stories. There [are]new regions. There [are] new people to meet for sure...in the DLCs." This was in response to whether new Na'vi tribes are coming in the future, seemingly confirming that players will, in fact, get to meet new tribes that they haven't seen in the films before.
When you consider that the story of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora runs concurrently with what's going on in the most recent film, this makes a ton of sense. Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment don't want to step on the movie's toes, and the easiest way to do that would be with something that's completely new for the game. Of course, we'll see some crossover between the two, but it'll make things much cleaner if the game focuses more on its own characters.
In the open-world of Pandora's Western Frontier, there are tons of opportunities to interact with the natural environment. Jump, run, or slide to explore the world around you. pic.twitter.com/I3dNi2u0ri— Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora (@AvatarFrontiers) November 27, 2023
