Angry Birds Space – Discovery
Fresh on the heels of the “They’re coming…” teaser image, Rovio has announced that “Angry Birds Space” is set to blast off on March 22nd, 2012. This is not an update, but rather, it’s a completely new version of Angry Birds. Rovio’s lunar outpost for this epic launch is: space.angrybirds.com.
This will be Rovio’s fourth paid version of Angry Birds and the first to deviate from the traditional physics we all know so well. That said, this Summer Pignic Golden Egg level might give us a small glimpse as to what to expect; however, I’m sure the physics have been much refined and improved since then.
It looks like Yahoo scored an exclusive on this one, as they have an article with some details. You can also find some official details in Rovio’s press kit. Said details are a bit vague, but below are some highlights:
- You will be flinging birds on alien planets while contending with zero gravity. This opens up new gameplay elements like slow-motion puzzles and “lightspeed” destruction.”
- Angry Birds Space will include new birds alongside familiar ones, sporting new super powers.
- The three star rating system will remain.
- Both NASA and National Geographic are launch partners.
- On March 22nd Rovio will simultaneously launch in mobile gaming channels, retail, and an animation channel. Rovio states this is the first time this has ever been done for a mobile game. (See updates below for more info.)
Well, there you have it. Please let us know your thoughts. We will keep this page updated as more details are released in the coming weeks. Yay!
Feb. 22nd, 2012 –
Thanks to these awesome Angry Birds Space stickers (above) on we’ve got our first glimpse at some of the revamped birds and pigs in Angry Birds Space. I don’t know about you guys, but these look awesome! We were asked to take the stickers down.
Feb. 23rd, 2012 – New authentic footage from Rovio’s personal space exploration reveals a giant slingshot on the moon. While the video doesn’t say much (watch on YouTube), it does reveal that information will be revealed on March 8th.
Feb. 25th, 2012 – Rovio has confirmed that the March 22nd release date applies to iOS, Android, PC, and Mac. (We guess PC means the standalone version from Rovio’s site, and Android means both Market and Amazon, but this is just our guess.)
Feb. 27th, 2012 – Houston, we have a slingshot. The latest video (above) says that Angry Birds Space will be “launching with the Samsung Galaxy Note”. (Remember the Advent Challenge?) Not entirely sure what this means though, since the Note was released some months ago. Any ideas?
Mar. 5th, 2012 – The third teaser has been released. It seems like the pigs will indeed be making their appearance in AB:Space.
Mar. 8th, 2012 – The big day has arrived! Check out our in-depth post about Rovio’s announcement.
