The addition of a multiplayer mode was first teased by Rovio back in December, just a couple of days after the game's release. “Who wants to see multiplayer in Angry Birds Go!?” the developer then said. “It’s coming in spring!”
Well, as it turned out, Rovio barely made its spring deadline as it managed to launch multiplayer racing in Angry Birds Go just days into summer.
Presumably one of the most requested features in Angry Birds Go, multiplayer racing lets you, either as an angry bird or a bad piggy, race across Piggy Island against other players from around the world or against your friends on Facebook.
Multiplayer racing is featured in the newly updated version of Angry Birds Go, which also includes new challenges.If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here.
Prior to this update, Angry Birds Go received only a couple of major updates. The first arrived last March with a new snowy theme, new karts and Telepods, a new kart starter pack, and new daily rewards. The second came in May, bringing with it new sub-zero tracks, new weekly tournaments, new action snapshots, new lucky boxes, and a new in-game mailbox.
