Angry Birds Star Wars II Goes Free in the iOS App Store and Gets 30 New Levels to Play
On Thursday, Rovio issued an update for its popular hit game Angry Birds Star Wars II in the iOS App Store for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The game update brings the latest version of the game to 1.6.0.
In the update, Rovio has added a total of 30 brand-new levels that players can test their skills in. 15 of these new levels are based on the 'pork side,' while the other 15 new levels are based on the 'bird side.'
Rovio has also made Angry Birds Star Wars II a free download in the iOS App Store. Rovio notes in the application description, "NOW FREE! Download for free on iOS," but the game developers don't mention whether this will be a limited time offer, or even how long. In either case, it's best to reserve your copy now while it doesn't cost anything so you won't regret it later if the game goes back to being paid in the future.
In case you've never played Angry Birds Star Wars, or Angry Birds Star Wars II before, the game is a collaboration between Rovio's popular Angry Birds series, and the hit Sci-Fi movie series Star Wars. In particular, Angry Birds Star Wars II takes place in episodes IV, V, and VI, while the first version of the game takes place in episodes I, II, and III. Rovio includes all of the space physics they got from NASA when creating Angry Birds Space.
Existing players of Angry Birds Star Wars II will find this update under the Updates tab in the App Store application. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Angry Birds Star Wars II for free from this App Store link
