The Angry Birds have joined the growing number of experiences available on the Magic Leap One Creator Edition mixed reality headset with the release of Angry Birds FPS: First Person Slingshot. Creators with access to Magic Leap One can now interact with the Angry Birds world like never before.
First Person Slingshot takes the pig-constructed towers from the classic Angry Birds games and drops them into the real world. Players can walk around and inspect levels from all angles, find structural weaknesses and hidden TNT, take aim with the slingshot, and bring the structures toppling down. Magic Leap’s Control puts the slingshot in the player’s hand. Taking aim at the green piggies has never been more intuitive or tactile, and with game elements (like flying birds and pigs, debris) reacting to surfaces and objects in the real world, FPS comes to life right on a living room table.
The Magic Leap One headset became available to creators in the United States earlier this year. The platform features experiences created by Magic Leap in cooperation with partners as diverse as the NBA and Icelandic avant-rock band Sigur Rós. Angry Birds FPS: First Person Slingshot, which was developed by Resolution Games in cooperation with Rovio, marks the first game developed by a third party to appear on the platform.
If you are a Magic Leap creator looking for a healthy dose of anger, Angry Birds FPS: First Person Slingshot is available now.
