Resolution Games has introduced a series first for Angry Birds by adding a level editor to Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs. The update adds a new island where players can work on levels with the assistance of Construction Pigs. The update is available on all platforms the game is available on including PSVR, Oculus headsets, Vive headsets, Windows Mixed Reality headsets, and Valve Index.
The new level builder gives players access to use a variety of blocks including wood, ice, TNT, rocks, and fans. Additionally, players can use different pigs from the game including all of the boss pigs to increase the challenge. The types of birds that are used in each level will also be set by level creators as well as where teleportation points will be.
Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games, said:
“I think most of us have played a game and thought of something to push the creative envelope, like ‘I wish I could have an entire level of TNT! By launching our new level builder tool in Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs, fans now have the power of creation right at their fingertips. And, it’s just as intuitive and fun as building with blocks in your physical environment. We can’t wait to see what comes as players’ imaginations run wild. We look forward to seeing who can create the most challenging, creative or even outrageous levels.”
According to Sami Ronkainen, creative director of extended reality at Rovio Entertainment, level editors have been a big fan request for the Angry Birds franchise for the last 10 years. When players create their levels they can save them to custom sets and share them locally with friends.
