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.

    Two questions:

    a) What is QA (as mentioned in the post)?

    b) How is the GC Sandbox mode accessed?

    (1) Quality Assurance
    (2) It is “developer mode” and only available to app developers with GC integration.

    It could be around her neck? That was the one she used to *SPOILERS* choke Jaba after R2-D2 took it off.

    Off topic: did AB released on bada devices? I saw the rumor on xda-developers but it’s already old (2 years ago)

    I believe it WAS released for Bada, but I don’t have any specific references. Sorry @theog

    Wow! How fun does that look!!! Another reason that this has become my favorite AB game. Thanks for the link @Mighty :)

    just watched the gameplay trailer and am now really looking forward to Cloud City! Those jets look interesting and immensely irritating at the same time. I may have to buy a second iPod, I can see some snapped devices in my future…

    I can’t really get a handle on how Fett appears in the game from the trailer. I assume he’s a boss of some sort, as he’s a villain, but actively derailing him looks like it’ll be fun :)

    maybe, once you finish a level(in cloud city probably), a boba fett icon will appear, if you press it, it will take you back to that previous level and will add Boba to the level and you try to kill him and the pigs. maybe to make the level harder, or it acts kind of like the millennium falcon.

    Do we know yet, the Boba Fett missions will be a purchasable extension or not?

    I sure hope not! If it is, I at least hope there’s another way to unlock it without purchasing it, like in Path of the Jedi.

    I do hope not. I liked the Jedi method too: do well enough in the game and it’ll be available for you, or if you can’t wait to play it you can pay to unlock it :)

    It’s out! Just updated.

    Looks like 20 levels available with 2 pages of “coming soon”, and 5 Boba Fett missions (all unlockables).

    Looking forward to unlocking these :)

    Cool special episode. I bought it, but I think it is very fair from Rovio that players have an option to get those levels by finding and getting helmets. I don’t know where helmets are, only in CC or somewhere else in game too and I hope that Sal and Slim will manage to find them all and make videos soon.

    So it appears that Boba Fett Missions is simply a collection of bonus levels with Boba Fett in them.

    Great update and Rovio teased us with Lando but he hasn’t appeared.
