An MR Enhancement for Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs

MR will be included in an Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs upgrade

An upcoming MR update for Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs will let users destroy pig towers directly in their living room.

The game is the seventh item to be treated to mixed reality by Stockholm, Sweden-based Resolution Games.

Now, one may send the birds flying in mixed reality (MR), which superimposes pictures of the actual environment over the pigs and their structures.

The studio today announced that a major update to bring the feathery friends into a new realm of spatial computing will be launching on March 26 along with its MR mode upgrade for Meta Quest and Pico.

Paul Brady, president of Resolution Gaming, said in a statement that there has been a lot of discussion recently over how mixed reality would affect games in VR and spatial computing. It is a really strange and powerful feeling to be able to interact with and lose oneself in the online worlds and personalities of their favourite video games blended in with the living area setting. Red, Chuck, Bomb & the Blues may be the best protagonists to introduce to the world of early mixed reality games.

By using passthrough, one gets the ability to merge scenes from Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs with their actual surroundings. Players are able to physically move a level to a table, the floor, or any other suitable location when it has room mapping capabilities. Furthermore, falling objects in their environment might bounce off of and hit real-world surfaces, such as bricks, pigs, birds, and other objects.

Players will be able to set down their controllers and use their hands to hold the slingshot, launch birds, rotate and resize the playspace, and perform other tasks.

Some players may associate this with the studio’s earlier mobile version of Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs, but Resolution Games is able to benefit from features like hand tracking and room mapping in addition to improved device performance because of the most recent MR mode version of Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs, which was created with the newest generation of MR devices in mind.

An incredible milestone for the industry is the studio’s experience working on Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs and Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs. After Demeo, Demeo Battles, Spatial Ops, Game Room, Racket Club, and Blaston, this is the studio’s seventh game using MR and spatial computing elements.

For $20, players may play Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs on many platforms, including Steam, PlayStation VR2, Meta Quest Store, and Pico. A free update for the game’s MR mode is also being given to owners of Meta Quest and Pico.
