Resolution Games released Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs (2019) earlier this year on every major VR platform, bringing the iconic mobile puzzler into the third dimension to pretty awesome effect. Now, the studio announced that there’s a custom level builder in the works that should arrive soon.

Resolution Games says the level builder for Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs is slated to arrive soon, targeting release during Holiday Season 2019.

By the looks of the trailer (linked below), you’ll have access to a number of basic pieces as well as the full cast of baddies to knock over, and a custom lineup of bird-pals to fling out of your trusty sling shot.

The level builder is said to launch as a local-only sandbox, however the studio is slated to release online functionality in 2020 which will let you share your levels with the community and compete for most difficult, highest scoring, most creative and “any number of variations,” the studio says in a Steam news update.

We were pretty impressed with Angry Birds VR when it initially launched on PC VR headsets back in February, giving it a commendable [8.5/10] in our review for its intuitive shooting mechanic, awesome graphics, and well-crafted 3D puzzles.

It’s since come to PSVR and Quest too. You’ll find Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs on Steam (Vive, Rift, Windows VR), Viveport (Vive, Rift, Windows VR), the Oculus Store (Rift, Quest), and the PlayStation Store (PSVR).
