Building upon the success of the highly popular Angry Birds games, Rovio has unveiled a new game called "Angry Birds Go" that will be launched for free on various platforms, including Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 platform. This game resembles "Mario Kart" but adds the familiar "Angry Birds" spin to it.
"On December 11, Angry Birds Go! will be available in app stores worldwide. It’s a complete first for the Angry Birds series, featuring high-octane downhill racing, upgradable karts, tons of characters with unique special powers and a fully rendered 3D world," Rovio stated in an official press release.
According to Rovio, this game will be built from the ground up and will be a free-to-play title. This game will be available on December 11th for iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, and BlackBerry 10. It is great to see that Rovio has included the Windows Phone 8 platform for the launch of the game and didn't wait until a later date. This game is expected to be just as popular as the other Angry Birds games.
"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. It’s all there, along with crazy stunt and air tracks, and many fun and surprising game modes," Rovio explains.
