RATLOOP ASIA’S ROCKETBIRDS 2: EVOLUTION TO FLY THE COOP AND LAND ON STEAM EARLY 2017
Get Ready for a Clucking Good Time with Upgradeable Weapons, Stacking Mechanics and More
LOS ANGELES, CA – November 9, 2016 – Prepare to rule the roost! Ratloop Asia announced today that Rocketbirds 2: Evolution, the sequel to the fan-favorite original Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, is coming soon to Steam. The all-breast meat, action-shooter will feature a full story campaign with upgradeable weapons, hilarious stacking mechanics and more in the new PC player experience that’s distinctly fowl.
“After much anticipation and preparation, we are happy to share the news that Rocketbirds 2 is finally coming to Steam,” said Rocketbirds creator, Sian Yue Tan. “After gathering all the community feedback, we’ve gone the extra mile and poured tons of improvements and additions into the PC version that we know you’ll like!”
The “most interesting chicken in the world” is back in his first sequel Rocketbirds 2: Evolution for PC, where Hardboiled Chicken gets entangled in a mysterious and sinister penguin plot in “Part 1: The Cockup.” Meanwhile, the pint sized budgie commandos are forming a strike force of great magnitude in “Part 2: The Rescue”, where players need to rescue and recruit hostages from deep behind enemy lines. Both parts can be played in or out of order, but converge to complete the full Evolution story.
Players will engage in nuanced, side-scrolling, shooter action as they face an assortment of evil penguins, space owls and other fowl creatures while strapping on jetpacks and wielding new, powerful weapons of ‘de-clucktion.’
Key PC features of Rocketbirds 2: Evolution include:
- A cinematic platforming, action-adventure game with light puzzle elements and Jetpacks found in Part 1: The Cockup
- Over 100 upgradeable weapons, costumes and stackable characters to unlock in procedurally generated missions in Part 2: The Rescue
- Part 2 also features 1 – 4 player online / offline / drop-in / drop-out cooperative features and a PvP mini game
- Original soundtrack by New World Revolution
Ratloop Asia’s Rocketbirds 2: Evolution is available now on PlayStation®4 and PS Vita and is coming soon to Steam. Stay up to date on the latest Rocketbirds 2: Evolution updates on Twitter and Facebook.
