‘Angry Birds Star Wars’ Gets New Levels, is Being Removed From FacebookBy: Sean Patterson - December 17, 2013
Angry Birds Star War II was released just weeks ago and already developer Rovio has shifted its focus to its new downhill kart racing game, Angry Birds Go!. That doesn’t mean, however, that old Angry Birds titles have been abandoned.
Rovio this week released a brand new update for the original Angry Birds Star Wars. The update adds 30 new levels to the game featuring plenty of space battles. It even features a new boss battle in which players can take on Darth Vader himself.
Unfortunately for fans of the game, Rovio is calling this update the “final episode” for Angry Birds Star Wars. The company is also ending support for the game on Facebook, and announced this week that Angry Birds Star Wars will be removed from the social network in March 2014. Item prices for the Facebook version are now half-off to encourage players to spend their credits.
Despite the abandonment of Facebook, Angry Birds Star Wars will still be available on mobile platforms. The trailer for the new update shows off the game in its final form:
