Come on in, the water’s fine! Rovio’s instantly recognizable avian troublemakers set off on a sub-aquatic adventure in The Angry Birds Movie 2: Under Pressure, coming to PlayStation VR next week.
But you can leave your slingshot at home; this one takes a different approach than you might expect. With one player inside the headset and four on the TV, Under Pressure is an asymmetrical co-op affair. The TV players work together to craft ammo for the VR player, who is the only one able to see outside the ship (and by extension the only one who can reel in all the wondrous treasure the ocean holds). Of course, players are able to interact with each other in helpful — and not-so-helpful — ways, which can make for chaotic, hilarious play sessions.
For a full list of new games coming to PlayStation next week, read on. And enjoy The Drop!
