The gameplay is the first time an “Angry Birds” game has enabled multiplayer slingshot. The game will be available to play at all 12 Electric Gamebox locations across the U.S. and U.K. from June 29. 

Based on the “Angry Birds” game, the multilevel gameplay will have players competing in teams to destroy digital adversaries with the slingshots on either side of The Gamebox. The digital experience uses motion-tracking sensors

worn by players surrounded by touch screens and offers multiplayer action for two to six players in a private Gamebox. 

“We are in the business of using technology to bring people together through shared play,” says Will Dean, co-founder, Electric Gamebox. “We could not be more excited to revisit the iconic ‘Angry Birds’ franchise through a totally unique format. The interactive, competitive yet friendly, version of this game will be exciting for long-time and new fans alike.”
