With new towers to topple, pigs to pop and missiles to master, Rovio is thrilled to announce the launch of Angry Birds 2, the first sequel to the most downloaded mobile game series of all time.
While retaining the much-loved slingshot format, the visuals and gameplay of Angry Birds 2 have been overhauled from the ground up, with multiple stages in each level and spectacular new spells – including blizzards, magic ducks and even hot chili peppers – to wield against the pigs, rock the Destruct-O-Meter and earn even more birds. Fans also can challenge other gamers worldwide and, for the first time, choose their own fowl to fling.
Alongside returning characters Red, Chuck, Bomb and the infamous King Pig, joining the flock is Silver, a dazzling but strange young bird rescued from Pig City. Growing up in pig captivity, she has acquired porcine habits and an odd sense of humor. But her incredible flying skills – and unique understanding of piggy ways – make her a cheeky and powerful new member of the flock.
“Design technology has evolved dramatically since the original game launched in 2009,” says Rovio co-founder Niklas Hed. “With Angry Birds 2 we wanted to bring a level of expressive depth and detail seen previously only in a console game or animated series – and create a new game that kids and adults alike won’t be able to put down.”
“Angry Birds 2 doubles down on the core tenets of the original that our fans loved: destruction and more destruction!” adds the game’s creative director Patrick Liu. “At the same time it adds a whole new layer of emergent strategy gameplay for both old and new fans to master.”
