The next offering from developers Rovio will be Angry Birds Go. Set for release on December 11th the good news is that the new game is set to launch at the same time for BlackBerry 10 as well as Windows Phone, Android and iOS - Yay!

As you'll see from the above trailer the game is very much different to the Angry Birds we've been used to and this time we get a downhill racing style game. 

And, yes! The game will be built from the ground up as a free-to-play title, with a whole host of modes and features included from the get-go. 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. The game will be out on iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry 10.

Hasbro’s TELEPODS will also be appearing in Angry Birds Go! – so, like with Angry Birds Star Wars II, you’ll also be able to teleport your favorite karts into the game. We’ll also offer a headstart for Angry Birds Go! with a special countdown app at the end of October – if you already have your Angry Birds Go! TELEPODS, then just scan them in to see what you’ll get in the game.

December 11 is just the beginning. We have huge plans for our first ever racing game and we can’t wait to see what you guys think. - Rovio

Roll on December - this one looks a real beauty!

Yeah now you say that... and if they exclude BlackBerry 10 from the release, you'll be bitching that BlackBerry does nothing to get the latest games and apps... smh.. damned if you do, damned if you don't....

Glad to see any games come to BB10 :)

No, not really.

A beta/fake app will be leaked to BBRY's app world and overload their servers, at which point BBRY will pull Angry Birds Go from the app world. Rovio will then release an announcement stating that they are still "committed" to bringing Angry Birds Go to BB10, stringing along the BBRY user-base for months only to finally declare they are not bringing Angry Birds to BB10 at all, a la Viber.

Wow, jaded much? Seems like smartphone apps and games are the least of your problems.

After all the recent developments at BlackBerry HQ I must commend Rovio for not ignoring us.

I posted a comment on the YT trailer thanking Rovio for supporting BB10. I can't wait to check this game out.

That game is going to be awesome. Can't wait to play it.

Yay! After they released angry birds star wars 2 for iOS, android and wp8, I was scared that they would do the same for this game. Glad to know that BlackBerry 10 is getting it too! Hopefully this trend of releasing games to all platforms at the same time will become more popular :)

It's nice of Rovio to give BlackBerry 10 parity with other operating systems. As it should be :-) There's quite a hit if positive news in the last couple of days. Nice change of pace.

Free to play. Someone wake me when this fad dies and we get games WORTH money again.

RedxD

So, you don't like games being free?

BriniaSona

Free game but to play anything past level 2 or get new birds or new or new pay 1.99. Ect

Coming soon..... smh!!

Addict for 10 years, but it may be time to get off this drug.

Yh..they gave a date, I'm not sure if u missed that, or if u missed that dis wasn't blackberry saying this...idk which u missed

vbittersweet

I think you missed the part where it says released for ALL platforms on December 11th - this is an actual press release from Rovio and has nothing at all to do with BlackBerry's past failure to meet deadlines. I understand why some people balk at any BB preview announcement but at least read and absorb the entire article before you get all negative.

medacomix15

Kudos to Rovio on this one!

Still hoping for Angry Birds Star Wars II

scalemaster34

Or new levels for Angry Birds Star Wars I......

NaturalMystic15

At least Angry birds Star Wars 1 on bb10 isn't filled with ads like the other platforms

Yeah

Hmm, the open letter didn't say anything about useless time wasting games on my business productivity phone. Oh, I forgot, my phone has been downgraded to a consumer device. Sure glad that we won't find these useless games on the new Z30.

SirJes

Lol now people don't want games anymore, I swear u just can't plz ppl

Easy fix: Don't download if you don't want to.

It's there for people who want/support it.

Exactly! :)

JuiciPatties

the only thing better would be if they released on BB10 first, with the other platforms following. :) And they should have left WP out. haha ... only kidding.

Good news here. Hopefully a sign of things to come. I think Rovio knows that the Prosumers LOVE Angry Birds. Got CEOs and VPs playing it during meetings. :)

Sabahruddin

That'd be good if all devs can do such equality in apps availability on all platforms like this.

ssbtech

Nice to see some of the big names still have faith in BlackBerry. Now.. Netflix?

raxamillion

There's always one.

Wow, talk about Mario Kart ripoff...

With that comment out of the way, good to see Rovio will continue to support BlackBerry.

This is fair. Pretty sure Rovio had a good feedback bringing their products to bb10 os.

matt0135

I like this a lot , it affirms my early hopes that blackberry 10 is starting to catch up and be adopted by the newer apps emerging from all platforms. If this keeps up, then I think in about a years time blackberry will indeed have all of the latest apps of the world! We can only hope!

Rovio is unreal and helping out BB10, thanks. I'll probably pick it up.
Same release date as iphone/android, how about that.

yeah really.

BB Z10 Rocks!

I'm so confused. Is BlackBerry a "prosumor" or a "consumer" device today?

Rowan M

Why do you need to be confused? If a game is in BlackBerry World, will it seriously affect you if you are one or the other? You download what you need and want, that's that. Be glad that developers still support BlackBerry, be it games or apps.

Posted via CB10

Alphax45

I was making a cheeky comment about BlackBerry and their lack of communication skills. Last we heard they were exiting the consumer market to focus on Prosumer and enterprise. Now games and the letter they published today says they are consumer focused.

Rowan M

It's one of the things I don't worry about. As long as my phone works for me, I am good. Consumer? Prosumer? I am a person who uses a smartphone.

dguy123

They never said they were exiting the consumer market. Everyone else said that. BlackBerry said they were going to focus on business. You don't need to exit anything to focus on business.

I will buy if it needs to pay.

Awesome. Instagram, Netflix, and all the banks need to watch Rovio and learn.

by the way, I'm using BB10 browser to do all my banking religiously. Hopefully, they'll get some BB10 stats.

hegemonia

what did rovio lost by bringing the game for all platforms at once? fame? money? the other companies who are not willing to make a simple conversion and asking from blackberry to have more devices in the market. really how much additional effort are you spending to port a ready game for android convert it to bb10.

Bigdeoye

This is so cool. Nice

That's great. I hope they come thru for bb10. I don't really wanna hear another "coming soon". Na mean?

as Christina replied I didnt even know that people able to profit in 1 month on the computer. official source SITE84.COM

the resurrection 2

But Blackberry is all about "tools not toys!". Oh the hypocrisy of this site is amazing. Or the short term memory problem..

Mike1117

Good news. Thank you Rovio!

dakid72

Will I be able to get this on my PB once it is released? I know they said all platforms, bb10 is not on the PB but it is its own OS and will be really cool on the 7inch screen.
Don't want to side load, this needs to be native to the PB and we shall see if it is come Dec 11th

BBPandy

Would love to see this on my PB

This actually looks really well made; got a bit of Sonic All Stars and Crash Team look/feel

DecAway

Sweet. A launch day title for a mainstream app. Whoo hoo!

Looks a lot like Mario Carts, I wonder how Nintendo will respond to this request of Angry Birds.

Xavier666#CB

I hope Ravio's advertising (if they even need to advertise) includes the BlackBerry World Logo.

I hate it when there's a commercial for a video game and they include all the console logos, but no mention of it being on a PC or Mac - when it is.

Logo parity is important too. Proves that the company is still around and popular titles are available.

Kudos to Ravio regardless.

I want it to show my support and plus, I like racing games.

DaSchwantz

Obviously Rovio isn't accepting pay-offs by Apple. Maybe Disney will buy them out to make sure they 'get with the program'.

Posted via CB10

BBPandy

It looks very much like Mario Cart. All you need to do is replace the birds with Mario & Luigie & you would have a Nintendo Game....I like Nintendo games :)

Looking forward to trying it...hope it comes to the Q10 too

darkwater79

May have something to do with the butt loads of money you can make with a less cluttered app store. Personally I've bought nearly all the Angry Birds games so far.

milo53

Good news! Fly baby fly!

ljfong

I never really cared about games on mobile, but if games are the apps that actually save BlackBerry in the end from its app problem, it's all good and proper.

zensen

Will bbry be around by then? Is what I'd be saying if I was a douche.

edyb

Glad to hear this... Because all the "announcements" from other so-called tech sites fail to mentionBlackBerry. They say iOS and Android and Windows.

And you wonder whether the media is doing their job or has some obvious agendas or influences here.
