As was promised, the Hoth Episode update has come available.
And for those needing a bit more explanation, Rovio Mobile has rolled-out the latest update for Angry Birds Star Wars. We saw the teaser video yesterday and we suspect that some may have been playing a little more than usual to knock out some extra levels before the new ones arrived today. On that note, the update is available and it has brought 20 new levels of game play along with a few bonus levels — all on the remote ice world of Hoth.
“It is a dark time for the Rebellion. Evading the dreaded Imperial Starfleet, a group of freedom fighters has established a new secret base on the remote ice world of Hoth. Unfortunately the evil Darth Vader discovers their hideout, and the desperate Rebel birds must escape the AT-ATs and Pigtroopers hot on their trail. But the Rebels have an ace up their sleeve with the debut of PRINCESS LEIA!”
And what else can we really say, those who have already been playing have likely already stopped reading this and are either waiting for the update to install or have already begun playing. As for me, honestly, I love this game and having to sit and write this and not be able to play is killing me. So yes, now that I outed myself as an Angry Birds Star Wars fan, I will end this madness of a post and get some game time myself.
But one final thought for those who have yet to get into this version of Angry Birds. If you like Star Wars and have enjoyed previous versions of Angry Birds, this is probably a good game to download. Those not looking to spend any money are in luck as there is a free download available. And for those willing to shell out a few bucks, Rovio Mobile also released an HD version for $2.99.
