Angry Birds VR Has Begun its Attack on Arcades Worldwide
Try and complete all the levels or make your own.
Resolution Games launched Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs a year ago bringing Rovio Entertainment’s iconic mobile videogame to virtual reality (VR) headsets. Today the title expands its reach even further thanks to a new partnership with SynthesisVR, a content distribution platform for location-based entertainment (LBE) venues worldwide.
VR arcades using SynthesisVR will have access to Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs in its entirety rather than a cut down made for LBE version. This means visitors will be able to play over 75 levels across a variety of environments as well as the Spooky Mode levels introduced for Halloween.
For those that like to set challenges for others, the Level Builder is available. Players can build challenges for their friends or other visitors, or the arcade itself can create its own unique levels found nowhere else. A neat little feature to help drive traffic.
“All LBVR operators will have access to license Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs without a subscription to Synthesis, making Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs available to every arcade non-exclusive of any management software,” SynthesisVR says in a statement. “SynthesisVR also announces this game is available under the Regional pricing plan introduced to help LBVR worldwide, making amazing content affordable to all.”
“We are psyched to bring Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs to arcades around the world,” Paul Brady, co-founder and Chief Communications Officer of Resolution Games, said. “This game is so fun and interactive, and it’s really an ideal game to play in an arcade setting. Plus, with the Level Builder, players can build their own levels and challenge others in a tournament-style format for hours of gameplay.”
VRFocus gave the original videogame a decent four-star review, saying: “Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs is Angry Birds just in VR, and that’s no bad thing, equally fun and frustrating as it ever was.” Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs supports most of the major VR headsets including PlayStation VR, Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift/Rift S, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality.
