Angry Birds 2 — The Official Sequel to Angry Birds — To Be Launched July 30th Worldwide!

Flingers, polish those slingshots! After being “Under Pigstruction” for a few months in select countries, Angry Birds 2 (Official Name) The Sequel will be launched worldwide on July 30th. We’ve downloaded Under Pigstruction back in March, and were able to put together some guides and preliminary walkthroughs.

The Angry Birds are back! Join your favorite feathered heroes on an all-new adventure as they storm Piggy Island to rescue their poor eggs (again)! But this time is different – the island is under pigstruction and the pigs are building super challenging multi-stage levels that require new ways of logic, skill and force to win. Get ready to fall in love again!

First Look

Things We Know Now

  • Birds can level up! See the forum topic here.
  • The Arena is unlocked after level 25. We put together a first look below and there is a great forum topic started by @sal9.
  • You receive a certain number of hearts that replenish over time. If you beat a level or restart before flinging a bird you DO NOT lose a heart.
  • Your bird line-up is determined randomly and the birds appear on “Cards”. You receive a certain number of cards to start each level, and more can be obtained by earning a certain number of points. If you exhaust all your cards you basically run out of birds. Occasionally, you’re able to watch a video ad to earn another card.
  • Most levels change when restarting. They’re usually similar, but the configuration can significantly impact your ability to 3 star or simply beat a level. There’s a forum topic about this here.

Arena First Look

Chose Your Bird

It’s the ultimate slingshot strategy – you get to choose which bird to fling next! “But that makes it easier” “WRONG!” You’ll need to master new spells and strategies if you’re going to stop those eggs getting scrambled. And with the new Destruct-O-Meter, the more blocks you destroy, the more extra throws you get!

Multi Stage Levels

You’ve never seen Piggy Island like this – jaw-droppingly stunning levels brimming with exotic plants, quirky details and plenty of peril. And because those naughty porkies are building their pigstructions right under your beak, many levels have multiple stages. Uh oh.

Spectacular Spells

Use blizzards, chilis, magic ducks and other outrageous spells to inflate the pigs for easier popping or to freeze their forts. And when you need some serious help, guess who’s at hand to make a pork-smashing cameo? That’s right, it’s the sardine loving Mighty Eagle. Oh yeah!

Challenge Other Players

Challenge players from across the world in the new leaderboards to see who’s the most hardcore bird flinger of them all.. Play new tournaments every day and earn more feathers to level up your birds to face the toughest competition on the planet. Seriously, it’s gonna be mega tough.

Defeat Boss Piggies

There’s some serious bad guys on Piggy Island, and your slingshot skills are needed to take them down. Foreman Pig, Chef Pig and – of course – the infamous King Pig make this the toughest challenge the birds have seen so far. Have you got what it takes to get the precious eggs back from these baddies?

It’s also important to note that Angry Birds 2 is optimized for iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPad mini and iPod Touch 5G or newer. You can try it on older devices, but we can’t guarantee a smooth bird flinging experience!

    I really like Angry Birds, but dislike the time-out features. If I have some time to relax and play a bit, I don’t want to have to stop because of their time limits. I find myself just putting it down, doing something else and forgetting all about it.

    I don’t think I’m going to even start with this iteration.

    i might be ready to give it another try!
    tried it when it launched, but did not attract me a lot. maybe a second try?

    Angry Birds Rio … Updated!! Now you can get “coins” when getting 2 or 3 stars (What The Flock?) and also says you can use them to unlock levels. I’m giving a try!

    Can you / we buy new levels with the coints? I have some coints but i have no idea where buy levels etc?

    Rank: Sling God with 26055 points
    By sal9 (@sal9)

    @swanz Bird Coins can be used to unlock levels, not to buy new ones.

    By swansaredead (@swanz)

    But everybody unlocked the levels months ago i think. It’s not very difficultt to get three stars…

    I hope Rovio adds Bubbles, Stella, and Hal into the game- that would complete the entire flock

    By JohnnyKashmere (@johnnykashmere)

    i agree, if not stella then at least bubbles and hal, they are two of the more powerful birds, why wouldnt they add them?

    @elliesue Rovio discontinued PC back in November for some reason

    This looks like a total blast. It’s interesting how much Rovio has used a “mashup” approach for AB2. Heavily dependent on Stella for graphics, all the original AB characters, Epic and Friends arena, Star Wars mapping, etc. Love the fearful piggie animations and Scandinavian headwear!

    Gonna be a fun August. I plan to avoid in-app purchases for as long as possible, but if they make me lol, I’ll spend some coin.

    I wonder if there will be Golden Eggs hidden throughout the levels, like Angry Birds 1

    Rank: Hardened with 500 points
    By burungberang (@cltan1985)

    I’ve always wondered since I first started playing Angry Birds – who laid the eggs that the Pigs keep stealing from the Birds? Since the silver bird is known to be female, it makes me wonder whether or not she’s the mother of the eggs.

    @cltan1985

    Iam also wondering, who laid the eggs?

    My theory is Matilda is the one who is responsible of the eggs… Because she is the only female in the group (except Stella and Silver)

    Rank: Master Slinger with 5160 points
    By Xano2323 (@xano2323)

    Apparently, Red was the one who just found the eggs one day, and made it his sole duty to protect them from harm. It’s never explained who laid the eggs in the first place. There doesn’t really seem to be any other birds on the island besides the flock, but I doubt that any of them laid it. It would’ve been well known info by now.

    I just read some french articles about AB2. It’s unbelievable : they all think nothing was revealed before and that the ‘first informations’ will be disponible on July 28th.Fools ! They don’t even know about ABUP and soft launches…
