CNET reports that the latest “Angry Birds” app, which will be available soon, will focus on a battle between the Autobirds and Deceptihogs. The spinoff will also feature accompanying animation from Hasbro and a line of Telepods, the figurines that pop into the game and bring special bonuses with them when you place them over the camera of your tablet or phone.

“This mash-up is going to appeal to both those who grew up with the
brand in the 80s, as well as fans of the brand today. People are going to love it!,” says Rovio’s chief marketing officer Blanca Juti. 

There is no word on pricing, but if “Angry Birds Transformers” stays true to form, the game will be free to play with in-game bonuses and boosts available to purchase. Keep checking for more information.
