Resolution Games and Rovio Entertainment today launched the next installment in the Angry Birds series, this time built from the ground-up for VR. Dubbed Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs (2019), the bird-shooting puzzle game is now available on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
The game boasts 50+ levels designed to bring a new dimension to the popular mobile franchise, letting you take the slingshot in your own hands and destroy the topsy-turvy 3D structures in effort to kill the evil green piggies within. As a VR-native, you can approach each level from a variety of different angles to find that one-shot, three-star victory you’re painfully addicted to.
The studio plans to launch Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs across “additional VR platforms” in the coming months, and will also be updating with more levels and gameplay. As it is now, the game features four bird-brained ammo types, and two enemy classes, so there’s no doubt plenty of opportunity to flesh out with the franchise’s other tropes.
Resolution Games is both developer and publisher of Angry Birds VR, having developed Angry Birds FPS: First Person Slingshot for Magic Leap One, and also VR titles Bait!, Bait! Arctic Open, Wonderglade, Narrows, and Solitaire Jester.
