XR Games, Sony Pictures Virtual Reality and Rovio Entertainment have announced the franchise’s next Angry Birds VR game, this time set to launch on PSVR alongside the debut of The Angry Birds Movie 2.
Called The Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure, the game makes use of PSVR’s ‘Social Screen’ feature, serving up couch co-op gameplay for up to three non-VR users and a single PSVR player. The news was first reported by Hollywood Reporter.
Unlike previous Angry Birds AR/VR titles, which had to you aiming a slingshot for teetering 3D structures by your lonesome, Under Pressure has you teaming up with friends to run a submarine. The VR player is tasked with piloting the submarine while the ‘Social Screen’ players control the sub’s crew, including Red, Chuck, and new movie character Silver.
We’ve only seen a few screenshots of the game, so gameplay still isn’t exactly clear, although it appears to provide some matching puzzles in addition to skill-based sling-shooting, with a top-down still showing flatscreen companions matching various boxes to create what appears to be a specific ammo type for the PSVR player to fire.
