Earlier today, I was alerted to the fact that Rovio has released the “Hoth” update to Angry Birds Star Wars. And of course, I immediately updated the game and started playing. I’ve had things to do today (hey, naps are important, plus if I remember correctly from Daria, TV counts as a place to be), but I’ve peppered in as much playtime as I could and I’m almost done with all the levels.
The first update for ABSW is based on Episode V, The Empire Strikes Back and takes place on the ice planet of Hoth. Rovio says “[F]ans must lead the desperate Rebel birds to safety as they’re pursued by AT-ATs and Pigtroopers. Luckily the Rebels have an ace up their sleeve.” Yup, if you’ve been playing and noticed one of the characters missing from the lineup thus far, you’ll be happy to see that Princess Leia has made her debut (as the pink bird) and has an interesting (and mostly helpful) power.
Check out the trailer to see the Hoth adventure in action and if you’ve already purchased Angry Birds Star Wars, get the free update for iOS with 20 levels, and start it. Now! It’s pretty fun.
The Hoth update is coming soon to Android, Mac, and PC.
