Rovio Is Finally Introducing A Way To Sync Your Progress In Angry Birds And Other Games Across Devices

Posted: May 7, 2013 in Apps, Gaming, Technology

20130507-224628.jpg Angry Birds maker Rovio today finally introduced a way for users to save their gameplay and progress in
the cloud, and then resume play on any device.
Called simply “Rovio Accounts,” it’s a feature which
has been in such huge demand that fan communities
like the officially sanctioned Angry Birds Nest had
previously drummed up complicated, multi-step workarounds to solve the problem. In a brief announcement on Rovio’s site, the company
reports that the Accounts feature is first arriving in the
new The Croods game worldwide, and in the classic
version of Angry Birds on iOS in Finland and Poland.
The continued worldwide rollout to other titles and
markets will happen “gradually,” explains the post. Registering for a Rovio Account will be an optional
feature, and it will support transferring progress to
new devices, such as when you upgrade your phone,
or to enable continued gameplay on other devices you
may currently own. In addition, the feature will also
allow several users to share a device, each with their own saved game. If you’re already playing multiple games on several
devices, upon first sign in on each, you’ll be asked if
you want to merge the scores, stars and feathers into
your current account. However, power-ups will
continue to be stored per device, explains a Rovio
FAQ. To get started, after registering, you’ll need to verify
your email within 48 hours to confirm your account. Rovio didn’t offer any details as to when it expects
the Accounts feature rollout to complete worldwide,
but it’s no small undertaking given the size and scope
of its current lineup. In the past year, the company
launched Amazing Alex, Bad Piggies and Angry Birds
Star Wars, which in addition to Angry Birds Classic, Friends, Space, Seasons, Rio, and The Croods,
accounts for 263 million active monthly users. In more recent months, the company has been
shifting towards making some games free, such as
when it offered the original Angry Birds game for free
this March. The new Accounts feature will now help
with these efforts to draw in both new lapsed users
who have since moved on from the device where they had first installed the paid Rovio titles.
