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!

Angry Birds Go coming to BlackBerry 10 in December

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....

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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. :)

Wow, talk about Mario Kart ripoff...

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Posted via CB10

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.

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.

Posted via CB10

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

Posted via CB10

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

I will be buying it. Any developer that supports BlackBerry, I am happy to support them too.
