AngryBirdsGOEarlier this year, the folks Rovio teased a new Angry Birds game called Angry Birds Go!, which was later revealed several months later to be a kart racing game. Given that the Angry Birds franchise has been more or less about slinging birds into pigs, just in different settings, this appeared to be a pretty refreshing change. The game was pegged for a release on the 11th of December and sure enough Rovio has announced the release of the game! To be fair the game had a soft launch not too long ago, although it appeared to be available only for the Australia and New Zealand iTunes App Store, but with the official launch, presumably everyone will be able to get their hands on the game.

For those hearing about it for the first time, Angry Birds Go! is a karting game where players will be able to choose characters such as Red, Chuck, Stella, and King Pig, just to name a few, all of which are from the Angry Birds franchise. Gamers will also be able to choose from over 50 karts to race in as well as a variety of different race tracks. The game will be free-to-play, and Rovio expects to monetize the game through in-app purchases which could get pretty expensive. The app will be available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, and BlackBerry 10 devices starting from today, so head on over to your respective app stores for the download!
