XR Games has announced that they are partnering up with Sony Pictures and Rovio Entertainment to bring The Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure to PlayStation VR this Summer.
The game will leverage the PlayStation VR Social Screen feature to enhance the increasingly popular couch co-op genre. The game can be enjoyed by everyone, combining VR and TV play to create a hilarious new team working experience. One player uses the PlayStation VR headset, while up to three other players play the same game on the TV using Dualshock 4 controllers.
Jake Zim, SVP of Virtual Reality at Sony Pictures Entertainment had this to say:
At SPVR, we believe that VR should be social, cooperative and fun. We’re excited about XR Games’ unique take on The Angry Birds Movie 2 VR game because friends and frenemies alike can team up and work toward a common goal. I dare anyone to play this game and not have a blast.
You can read a bit more about the game below.
Players team up to run a submarine, creating a unique new underwater setting for an Angry Birds game. The whole game takes place within the story of the new movie, as Red and the birds must set aside their differences with Leonard and the pigs and travel together inside an awesome Piggy submarine en route to take on their shared new feathered foe that threatens to destroy both of their islands. In the game, the VR player takes on the role of Leonard, the submarine’s captain, while the Social Screen players control the sub’s crew, including Red, Chuck and new movie character Silver.
