-Host just STRONGLY hinted that Cameron will be showing up.
-Yves Guillemot just announced that Ubisoft will be working with Steven Spielberg on Tintin games.
-Ubisoft is developing over 100 shots for Avatar with its new VFX studio!
-Cameron speaking now!
-Cameron says there will be 1000 ft tall trees. Na'vi will be 10 feet tall, striped like tigers.
-Cameron says that game will have its own characters, vehicles, weapons, and settings. Will also embellish on Na'vi culture and technology.
-Ubisoft started work 2 and a half years ago.
-WETA created assets for the game that will not be in the movie, just as Ubi created assets for the movie that won't be in the game.
-Player can choose either human or Na'vi perspective. Moral theme in the game - who the "bad guy" is depends on who you play as.
-Cameron suggested that the game be 3D. Ubi was a bit hesitant at first, but ended up showing Cameron a demo that blew him away.
-The game will be demoed over the next few days at Ubisoft's booth!
-Cameron leaves stage. No footage or stills from game, yet.
-At beginning of conference, one of the Ubi guys implied that the game would be unveiled officially tomorrow. I wonder if he means that the playable demo will be unveiled tomorrow - I think there's still a chance we will see a clip from the game later in the conference. We'll see!
-Ubi showing off Red Steel 2 and other non-Avatar games.
-Still showing off other games, all with trailers. I wonder why they chose not to show footage from the Avatar game? Maybe a surprise reveal at the end of the conference? Although I would suspect they would have wanted Cameron to introduce the clip.
Conference still going on!
Conference is over. Next stop: game demo on show floor tomorrow!
