"Security is intense these days at the Montreal offices of Ubisoft where more than 200 employees are working overtime to put the final touches on the new James Cameron's Avatar: The Game, which is due to hit store shelves Dec. 1.
With Cameron's blessing, Ubisoft Montreal created its own storyline set two years before the events of the film. In the game, players take on the role of Abel Ryder, a code breaker sent to Pandora. There they enter the Avatar Program, which creates the alien-human hybrid bodies, like the one used by Sully in the film. Players are then faced with a choice: Side with the noble Na'vi or work for the Resources Development Administration, the armed human enterprise planning to mine Pandora's coveted minerals."
