Coming soon to Idle Hours North

Angry Birds 2 VR!

The award-winning location-based VR platform, along with Sony Pictures Virtual Reality (SPVR) and Rovio Entertainment, brings you a brand new gaming experience. Up to four players can immerse themselves in a first-person VR world where the only thing standing between hordes of bad piggies and Bird Island is you… And your GIANT SLINGSHOT!

The game experience is inspired by The Angry Birds Movie 2, and acts as precursor to the events in the movie which finds the flightless birds and scheming bad piggies in the midst of an ever-escalating prank war. It’s up to you and three of your Bird Buddies to stop them from turning your idyllic home into a messy, smelly... Pigsty! Armed with your trusty slingshot, you must blast the baddies with coconuts, melons, bowling balls (and anything else you can get your feathered fingers on), to repel the Piggy Fleet from Bird Island!
