During the UploadVR E3 2019 conference this Monday, we saw a teaser for The Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure, the movie tie-in VR game. It seems the teaser didn't really show any VR gameplay footage, only scenes from the movie itself. You can see the official trailer for the The Angry Birds Movie 2 below. We might still get the chance to see a proper VR teaser or trailer later during E3 2019.

The game is being developed by XR Games in collaboration with Sony Pictures Virtual Reality and Rovio Entertainment to bring The Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure exclusively for PlayStation VR, and the game will launch alongside the movie in Summer 2019.

The Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure will leverage the PlayStation VR Social Screen feature to enhance the increasingly popular couch co-op genre. This is a game for everyone, combining VR and TV play to create a hilarious new team working experience. One player uses the PlayStation VR headset, while up to three friends play the same game on the TV using the PlayStation 4 system with DualShock 4 controllers. 

Players can team up to run a submarine in a unique new underwater setting for an Angry Birds game. The whole game takes place along with the new movie's story, as Red and the birds must work together, setting aside their differences with Leonard and the pigs to travel together inside a Piggy submarine en route to destroy their common enemy who threatens to destroy both of their islands. In the game, the VR player takes on the role of Leonard, the captain of the submarine, while the Social Screen players control the crew, including Red, Chuck, and the new movie character, Silver.

The Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure is going to be a PlayStation VR exclusive and it's slated for a Summer 2019 release.
