Angry Birds Star Wars comes to Facebook, features social integration and new power ups

Rovio unleashes Angry Birds Star Wars onto Facebook with social integration

You can now play your favorite bird-flinging game on Facebook. Rovio has launched Angry Birds Star Wars on the Facebook App Platform today, with a few minor modifications from the version available across Windows 8, PC, Mac, Kindle Fire, Windows Phone, Android, and iOS. The changes relate to social integration and power ups.

The Facebook version of Angry Birds Star Wars pits player against player as Facebook friends can compete directly against each other. The game play is generally untouched, except for the changes needed for the social integration as described above. Even cooler, players can compete in weekly tournaments.

Rovio is also producing five new levels every week, meaning that players can never truly beat the game. However, this probably isn't a bad thing, as there isn't a reason to "beat" Angry Birds, per say. New power-ups for the Facebook version are included and you can check them out on the game.
