Sony Pictures Entertainment and Rovio announce Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure, a game based on the upcoming movie releasing this summer.

Players will be given a 4-way gameplay perspective with 3 people on a conventional display while a single person has the VR headset on. You must team up to run a submarine, as the game takes place underwater. Those on the Social Screen get to play as Red, Chunk, and Silver while the player in VR will play as Leonard, the sub’s captain.

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.

Jake Zim, SVP of Sony Pictures Entertainment Virtual Reality

We wanted a console VR game that could replicate the humor and action of The Angry Birds Movie 2 and take players inside the narrative of the new movie, where the birds and pigs have to set aside their differences and actually work together. XR Games, with support from Rovio and Sony Pictures, are creating a genre defining VR game that will keep the entire family laughing and playing together.

Joe Lawson, Head of Entertainment Content and Movie Program at Rovio Entertainment

“VR is an exciting medium, but there are not yet enough games that can be enjoyed with family and friends in the real world. We saw an opportunity to introduce new players to PS VR by making a game in which VR and TV players have different viewpoints and responsibilities within the same funny, team-spirited game. Rovio’s Angry Birds IP, Sony Pictures’ The Angry Birds Movie 2 film, and PlayStation VR’s Social Screen feature all combine to give the perfect shared VR experience in your home. We’re super-excited to launch our game alongside the film’s release this summer!

Bobby Thandi, Founder and CEO at XR Games

Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure will land exclusively on PlayStation VR this summer.
