Rovio Teases "The Most Epic Soft Launch Ever" For New Angry Birds Game

Rovio is teasing its next Angry Birds game with a bizarre video revealing a soft launch for the project in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand with more countries to follow.

The teaser looks more like a Dark Souls or an Elder Scrolls game, but at the last second throws a red Angry Bird at you. It's a strange juxtaposition of some of the most hardcore games, and arguably the most casual game ever made.

This teaser appears to be unrelated to Angry Birds Stella, which has a completely different art style from previous Angry Birds games. You can check out the teaser below.

Our Take
This is a strange way to tease game in both the execution of the video, and the reveal of its availability. We now know something Angry Birds related is coming to Australia, Canada, and New Zealand at some point, and it will eventually come to other countries. And it may have a medieval theme? Even that part is unclear. In any case, we should learn more soon.
