Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs is receiving a free update today which adds a level builder allowing you to create and play your own Angry Birds VR levels.
Describing the new mode, Resolution Games noted players will be able to use several blocks from the original game, including wood, ice, rock, TNT, fans, boulders and decorations blocks. You’ll be able set which birds the player can slingshot at structures, teleportation points around the structure, and, of course, place pigs on the structure to be taken down (including boss pigs from the main game).
As we noted when the level builder was announced, this tool seems like a natural post-launch step for Angry Birds’ first venture into VR, and will hopefully keep the game fresh for those whole played through all the included levels in the main game. Importantly, however, the level builder that launches today only includes local capabilities.
This means you’ll only be able to create and play levels on your own device, and can’t share levels online – for now. Resolution Games previously confirmed they are “aiming to launch an online version that will allow players to share their levels with the greater Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs community and even compete for most difficult, highest scoring, most creative and any number of variations.”
Until then, you’ll just have to make the levels on your own device and pass the headset around to friends to try out.
The free level builder update for Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs launches today on all supported platforms, including PC VR, Oculus Quest and PSVR.
