Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City Update with Boba Fett Mission Coming Soon!

Angry Birds Star Wars is due for another update! According to the Sandbox mode of GameCenter, there are two new leaderboards and one new achievement in this forthcoming update.

Details are limited, but here’s what we think:

  • Cloud City Leaderboard: While we weren’t 100% that it would be called Cloud City, since sometimes Rovio likes to be creative, we knew this was coming from the last Hoth update. Our guess would be that Cloud City will include 40 levels released across two 20-level updates, but that’s just speculation.
  • Boba Fett Missions Leaderboard: We aren’t entirely sure what this is. But, it sounds like it’s a side game, sort of like the “Road Hogs” time trials in Bad Piggies. Have another thought? Let us know!
  • Block Buster Achievement: Again, this goes along with the Boba Fett Missions. We’re very interested to see what this truly means.
  • Last, but certainly not least: We do NOT know know when this update will land. It’s not a teaser from Rovio, but comes from GameCenter’s Sandbox. Usually this means Rovio is doing QA on the update, but there’s nothing known for certain.

Maybe the Boba Fett missions will be like the King Pig mode in ABo, where you play as the pigs. I don’t think Boba Fett would be one of the birds; I saw him in the pigs sprite sheet of the game data.

Side note, the ingame data calls this episode “Bespin.”

That was my thought, as well. If any new birds are introduced in the Bespin/Cloud City chapter, the most appropriate character would be Lando Calrissian.

I’m thinking Yellow Bird – Ham Solo will be out of the game, replaced with the Lando version of the Yellow Bird, as seen at Toy Fair with the same game mechanics.

@ruckdriver @dr-omega I Hope Orange balloon bird as new character.

I don’t recall seeing any of the toys based off of Orange bird. Even the Prequel stuff.

I’m not sure how that would work, especially since we see the yellow bird as Han in other levels, specifically POTJ in current character.

Star Wars has crept up on my list of favorite AB games, so looking forward to this – especially if Boba Fett is going to be involved. He’s the most useful character in the Lego Star Wars games.

Can’t wait, I think it is safe to say that it will come over 2 updates, if there is no episode completion, 3 stars in all levels, or Score Addict achievement in the Sandbox mode of GC:)

Since this is the last AB game not to have power ups, I am going to speculate that they will come with this update. Hopefully they will be distinguished like in Space.

Looking forward to another update!

I bet PUs are coming with this update @sparty83. But if Rovio takes that there wasn’t enough places for new leaderbroads in GC for their old games, that sure is not case with ABSW, so I expect that scores will be distinguished.

Wow another update coming. Exciting! Wonder if Space will be next given the recent history: 3/7 AB BadPiggies update, 3/11 AB Rio MM update, 3/13 AB Season 8 new levels and today AB Star Wars update. One can dream, all AB games updated or announced to be updated in a two week time frame.

BFM might be sand vehicle races.

I think this update will come after or right when the AB Toons update for all AB apps available.
I’ve recently checked Youtube, Rovio’s new videos says that updates will land on 17 March on all AB apps to add AB Toons in the apps. (This is just my opinion from my observation, I could be wrong)

Sounds fun! But why is Boba Fett so popular? Did he even say anything in the movie?

Avatar of AngryBirdsSpaceMasterRank: Master Slinger with 5930 points
By AngryBirdsSpaceMaster (@spacemaster)

This has always confused me too… he had practically no part in the movies. He did say one line though. Maybe it’s because he’s got a cool suit.

Avatar of Dr. OmegaRank: Master Slinger with 7015 points

IIRC, he has 13 lines of dialogue in 6 films.

FYI – According to the DK Angry Birds Star Wars Ultimate Sticker Collection book, his character name is Boba Fatt in the AB universe. I believe they use that on the Ham Solo Power Battlers Bird toy, as well.

I think that the boba fett missions will be like what the Jabba missions in the Xbox Lego Star Wars games- basically where you play a random level, and the goal is to find a character from the game. For example, a level in cloud city would be searching for the Lego Lando character. I suspect there would be a twist however, where say a random level is chosen (like king pig mode on ABO), or maybe a new level specific to the boba fett mode (like the road hogs mode in bad piggies), but it is turned into a boss level, or you have to pop boba-pigs that are stronger, maybe like the astronaut pigs in ABSp.

Sounds interesting! Boba Fett is a villain in Star Wars & according to my knowledge, he is not a popular character of Star Wars. So what should be BOBA FETT Missions leaderboards ? I have no guesses :-/

Boba Fett is me and my older brothers favorite character by far and he is a lot of other people’s favorite character, where did you get not popular from?

@pirateriley1 Okay, I did not watch movies like star wars movies, but I am fan of ABSW. I just guess it from wikipedia.

Boba Fett is big in the US. Strong silent type and a badboy. Very big at the SW conventions.

sorry @amandeep, I don’t know what you’ve been reading, but he’s probably one of the most popular chars in Star Wars. There’s floods of novels and books about him, and I think his figure is one of the most sought-after.

Watch the movies! :D but only 4 & 5…

Rank: Hardened with 730 points

And episodes 2 & 6 but not really six, also my interpretation off boba fett is you control the Slave 1 and dodge angry birds until you run out of fuel or health

By Karim

Maybe Boba Fett would be something like Bad Piggies.

Little disapointed though, at first sight I thought cloud city was the cloud saving we’ve seen in the croods, but new levels are always welcome, definitly in star wars:)

That’s really cool, new mission in ABSW, I can’t wait to see what’s it about. I like your idea that it might be alike Road Hogs, that would be fun.
Off topic, Star Wars figurines are included in Kinder Surprisse eggs and Boba Fett seems to be most popular one, kids are crazy for him.

I wonder if Space will get a 1st Birthday update after this…

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8200 points
By cosmo2503 (@cosmo2503)

@spacemaster I actually hope that it can come out before ABSW update as birthday gift. They usually tweet about new updates and make sort of teasers but if they really want to surprisse us they will keep it as a secret. Remember ABO update that came on Tuesday instead of usual Thrusday with unexpected Bad Piggies episode? I hope something like that might happen this time with Space.

Most definitely. They do like to surprise us like that.

Probably Boba Fett missions will be about killing just a specific pig on a level.
I think this because Boba Fett is an assassin, but it could be like King Pig mode too.

Perhaps the Boba Fett Missions are when power-ups are used to defeat levels?

I agree. It’s been pretty long time since the last update for PC version. Fortunately I’ve got also a tablet so I’ve been getting all the updates, but I still like more playing on PC.

By Morph416

Agreed, 100%

I know my opinions have been a bit harsh lately regarding Rovio and it’s PC support (both Windows/MAC platforms)… and for that, many of my posts here have been deleted. Whereas, asking Rovio, would be a moot point.. they just don’t answer emails regarding questions in those categories.

But they need to be addressed here as of late.

Since December, we have seen 4 or 5 updates to the mobile platforms.. and I think one, for the home computer. And yet here.. we have yet another. I believe if Rovio plans on ending computer development, they should just say so. IMHO, the PS3/XBox/DS was a mistake.. I mean, who would really pay $60 for a game that costs $5 on a PC that can be connected to a TV for large screen viewing? Those versions cannot be updated unless a downloadable version was released, and we’ve heard nothing since those were made available to the public.

ABN… I understand your delicate association with Rovio.. but sometimes an opinion needs to be heard.. and as a valid customer, I can tell you, they do not answer these questions… unless it has to do with purchasing the product.

I could care less about Slash’s song update to Space.. seriously.. but the levels in Rio, Seasons.. and now this?

Trust me when I say… Rovio.. it’s much more fun to have levels on a widescreen PC, then it ever has been on a phone with a 4″ display… and I have both.

Please update them all soon!

Seasons and Rio were released about… What, 10 days ago? And ABo was 15?

By Morph416

AMS and Birdleader..

I have the utmost respect for this site.. believe me.

But the updates that you are referring too.. are on the mobile platform. Not for computers.

Rio on the PC is 1.44.. whereas iPhone/Android is 1.61. Space is 1.41, Original is still 3.0, and Seasons is 3.11..

Your site is one of my regular daily visits for all updates.. because this IS the site to come too! For everyone and everything.. updates, videos.. you name it.

All I am saying is, if Rovio sees these posts.. and I know they do… they have a group of customers they are neglecting.. and it’s about time to either update, or post on their site that they have refocused their efforts to only the mobile community.

Rank: Fling King with 4235 points
By Lisko (@lisko)

I think @AMslimfordy is saying that 10 days isn’t such a long time. Feel free to correct if I’m wrong.

I completely understand that people get frustrated when they have to wait for something that others already have. It’s okay to discuss about it, but I really don’t think that it will make updates come sooner. PC versions have always been launched later and there’s always been discussion about that matter. It hasn’t changed anything.

Personally I really don’t care if I have to wait. I’m happy as long as there will be new updates :)

By Morph416

If I remember correctly, Rio’s 1.5.1 was released in Dec of 2012. It’s almost April, 2013.

Rumor has it that there won’t be a release for that version on PC.. or maybe it was said that “until a full release was made” for it that we would have it.

Eh .. who knows. Rovio’s gonna do what Rovio’s gonna do.. despite what money we’ve already paid them for.

Rank: Fling King with 4235 points
By Lisko (@lisko)

I already told this in the forum, but I was asking from Rovio about the new updates for PC and got an answer that the Rio update is coming for PC as soon as possible, so I wouldn’t blame them for “stealing the money”.

Yes i definitly agree!
i cant remember anymore when the last PC update was land.
ABO and RIO came out 1-2 weeks ago, this is abnormal
PC update are always later then iOS and Android, but mostly 1-5 days later. I hope they update the games soon. Waiting…
