Angry Birds is a game you may not have thought about – let alone played – in years, but is bound to send a pang of nostalgia coursing through your veins. It may have been all the rage in the early days of the iPhone and the iPod Touch, but now you can take that journey of reminiscence to the big screen, thanks to Electric Gamebox.
From June 29, you and your pals can join the bird resistance and take down the cartoon pigs in this brand new multiplayer, virtual reality experience that’s the first of its kind. Angry Birds will get the full projection tracking, motion tracking and surround sound experience that users have come to expect at Electric Gamebox, to fully lose themselves in the world of the birds!
Players are invited to pick up a slingshot and help Red’s army of birds battle their way through the levels of pigs to reclaim their hatchlings and eggs in a hyperreal battle arena. Red may have conquered the pocket-sized screen, but a larger force is needed to tackle a full VR experience, which you can be a part of.
Guests can play in their own private room to ensure that they’re completely in the zone, reaching maximum focus levels to deal with the twists and turns that the frantic game of Angry Birds throws up.
Will Dean, CEO and Co-Founder of Electric Gamebox, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to bring Angry Birds to the immersive gaming space. It’s such an iconic game and being able to bring it to life in a way that hasn’t been done before through our unique technology has been incredibly exciting for the team. We can’t wait to see fans playing Angry Birds in a brand-new format.”
Angry Birds VR kicks off at all Electric Gamebox venues across the UK from June 29, 2022. Anyone over the age of five can play the game, and it’s recommended for children and adults alike. Book your Electric Gamebox experience here.
