Angry Birds Go (teaser 003)

Angry Birds maker back in June teased its upcoming Angry Birds-themed kart racing game. Named Angry Birds Go, the game will be set on a 3D Piggy Island and include tons of characters with unique special powers and a fully rendered 3D world.

Then in August, the Finnish developer released more information, revealing the title will be a tie in with energy drinks maker Red Bull.

On Tuesday, Rovio gave us a release date and published a gameplay video which shows off game mechanics while revealing a bunch of bird and pig characters from the Angry Birds series. I’ve included the video and a few additional tidbits right after the break…

Taking a page from Mario Kart, Rovio’s upcoming downhill kart racing game will contain a number of different kart upgrades and power-ups, along with crazy stunt, air tracks and additional goodies, some of which provided as in-app purchase content.

In Angry Birds Go! you can feel the rush as you fling down the track and go head-to-head in a fast and furious race to the finish line! Look out for treacherous roads, mischievous opponents and unique special powers to put the race leader behind the pack. Plus you can go from homemade soapbox car to a super-fly car by upgrading your ride.

Check out the gameplay video below.

Angry Birds Go will be landing on December 11 as a free-to-play download for iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry 10 devices.

According to Rovio, Angry Birds Go will feature Hasbro’s interactive Telepods toys. Like with Angry Birds Star Wars II, you’ll be able to teleport your favorite karts into the game.

    • TeChNoStyLeZ

      I never really likes the angry birds game play although I find the characters and the graphics nice but this game is gonna be AWESOME and FREE !!

    • Anonymous Coward

      The graphic is better than Mario Kart. Its worth to try for free also. (IMHO)

  • Jonathan

    Free? One of my favorite words. 😀

    • omrishtam

        SOME PEOPLE ARE BORED TO READ OR WHAT???

      • John

        Thanks George, I can read, so your insult FAILED.

        Let me try and dumb it down for the new people, shall I: When you say free is the game 100% free, ad-supported or will it be use a freemium model like MOST games now-a-days do?

        So, take your reply and go away because it’s you who doesn’t understand..otherwise it seems this is a brilliant way to do nothing more then boost your post count.

    This is nice but everyone is waiting for Walking Dead Season 2. That’s where the epicness is.

    • John

      I’m waiting for Christmas but what does Walking Dead have to do with this review?

      • Flourish

        He means the iOS game not the tv show

  • Tarun Verma

    I might actually play this one.

  • VATekMan

    Is it December 11th r November 11th? The title says on and the article says something else…

    I would rather pay for it than get it free. since when it is free, they are getting their money some other way, which is normally really annoying!!!!!!

    • TeChNoStyLeZ

      yeah that upgrade your ride part of the video looks like some freemium stuff

  • Freddy Born

    Is it November or December?

  • Freddy Born
