Avatar dated for early December

The videogame prequel to James Cameron’s blue alien CGI fest, Avatar, has been dated for December 1st in the US and the 4th in the UK — two weeks before the film itself hits.

The game, which looks to play a lot like Capcom’s Lost Planet, takes place two years before the events in the film and on a different part of the lush Pandora, and aims to make it the player’s task to choose between what they think is right and wrong. Just don’t forget to bring your “if it moves, shoot it” mentality.

The game’s coming to PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and PSP.
