Rovio: new Angry Birds game coming soon with... new birds


With all the recent Flappy Bird drama, Rovio thought that now would be a good time to tease the upcoming release of a new game featuring birds. Obviously, we’re talking about Angry Birds here. A new title in Rovio’s extremely popular franchise is "coming soon", but unfortunately we know little about it.

According to a tweet from several hours ago, the game will bestow new birds and "big adventure" upon us.

The franchise’s latest title, Angry Birds Go!, isn’t your average Angry Birds game, being a free kart racing simulator with tons of in-app purchases (some of which can cost more than $50). So maybe the new game will also take a previously untried approach.

Not long ago, Rovio’s executive VP for games said that the company was planning to launch more free-to-play games. Is the upcoming Angry Birds included in these plans? We’ll see soon.

I don't like the in-app purchase option. I'd rather just pay for the game up front and be able to play. I've only played Angry Birds Go! a couple of times because the whole in-app purchase idea put me off it

The last time I had angry birds installed in my phone was like 6 to 7 months ago. The game is just not that interesting anymore.
