Rovio Entertainment and LucasFilm join forces again to bring you Angry Birds Star Wars II, a sequel to the the blockbuster game of 2012! https://angrybirds.com/starwars2
The game will feature over 30 playable characters, as well as the ability to choose your side and more! For the time being be sure to keep an eye out for the Return of the Jedi story, which will feature in the original Angry Birds Star Wars.
Angry Birds Star Wars II will be available across app stores worldwide, starting from September 19.
A few hours ago Rovio released the Angry Birds Star Wars II into the Android's Play Store, Apple's AppStore and Windows Phone Store. Angry Birds Star Wars II covers the era of the The exorcist prequel trilogy (Episode I, II and III), therefore the nostalgic fever we felt in the first game is now gone.
In Angry Birds The Star Wars II you are able to play either around the Birds side of join the Pork side. The game mechanics are kept pretty much the same as in the first game, though Rovio features some new elements like the real-life Telepods. These are real toys made by Hasbro, which once purchased in real life, are available always that you should throw in the sport.
You don't have to buy those toys in order to play with their characters, of course. You can unlock them hanging around with earned (or bought) tokens and you can use them a limited number of times. You may also opt to buy a character permanent use option in-game, however it will cost you a great deal.
Anyway, if you're a regular gamer who loves to play Angry Birds occasionally, then you don't have to buy anything except the sport itself. So if you're on Android, you can download it here.
