Rovio, the Finnish game developer known for its popular game Angry Birds have brought a new game to town, Battle Bay. The Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) style game which was in geo-restricted testing has now been launched worldwide. The game is available for download both on Android and iOS platform for free.
Unlike the stylised wingless birds that attack evil piggies to save their eggs, Battle Bay is a non-bird, free-to-play game that kicks off the battle in blue waters. There is the option to choose from different classes of ships that can load weapons, fix other damaged vessels and more. Battle Bay is Rovio’s first real-time, PvP multiplayer game that offers players a chance to engage in exciting 5 on 5 battles on the open sea with other players from across the world. The app comes with a strategic gameplay as well and players in the multiplayer matches earn in-game currency after matches to upgrade their weapons, items etc.
Evidently, the Angry Birds franchise that hit the mobile platform (iOS) in 2009 added a new game; Angry Birds Islands which recently launched in Japan and Taiwan. Like other Rovio games, Battle Bay brings the same colour art and unique game design that will find favour with those who like online multiplayer games. As mentioned, Battle Bay was initially a geo-restricted launch in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Iceland, Germany, Spain, Brazil, Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand but it has been now made available worldwide. The game is available on the platforms Android 4.1 and up, iOS 8.0 and up. The game carries a heavy file size of 203MB, and it is recommended that you download it over Wi-Fi.
