Who doesn’t like a free videogame every once in a while? Gamers might be used to Games with Gold or PlayStation Plus freebies but they’re still paying for a subscription. British developer XR Games is offering copies of its title The Angry Birds Movie 2: VR Under Pressure for PlayStation VR. But you need to be quick the offer is limited.
The promotion is to celebrate XR Games winning a Northern Tech Award from GP Bullhound in the ‘Top 15 Northern Stars’ category, bringing the fun co-op experience to more players stuck at home.
“Since families are still facing varying degrees of lockdown measures across the world, we’d like to do our bit to help,” said XR Games’ CEO Bobby Thandi in a blog post. “How you might think? Well, we’d like to give away 500x free copies of Angry Birds Under Pressure VR.
That’s right, there are 500 copies of the PlayStation VR exclusive up for grabs, it’s just a case of fastest fingers first. All you need to do is fill out this form to nab yourself a code.
The Angry Birds Movie 2: VR Under Pressure arrived last summer, created in collaboration with Sony Pictures Virtual Reality and Rovio Entertainment. Rather than pitting players against one another, they all have to work as a team to keep the submarine they’re in from breaking whilst scoring as many points as possible.
One player dons the PlayStation VR while three others use the TV social screen and DualShock 4 controllers to control Angry Birds characters. There are gameplay variances between the VR and non-VR modes so players can keep swapping around to mix the experience up.
In its review of The Angry Birds Movie 2: VR Under Pressure VRFocus noted: “Developers have experimented with a number of social apps and videogames in VR, with one of VRFocus’ favourites being Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. The Angry Birds Movie 2: VR Under Pressure, on the other hand, takes that camaraderie and puts a controller in everyone’s hand for some intense, vocal excitement.”
VRFocus will continue its coverage of XR Games, reporting back with the latest updates and announcements.
