Angry Birds Star Wars Official Gameplay Trailer

With the release of Angry Birds Star Wars just three days away, Rovio has released the official gameplay trailer. The trailer starts of with the Star Wars theme song that we all know and love. It then quickly transitions to showcasing the characters and the worlds they battle in. The gameplay will transport players across the galaxy, from the arid deserts of Tatooine to the dark world of the Death Star itself. Watch out for laser cannons, AT-AT Walkers, Pig Fighters, and much much more. This teaser also gives us the first glimpse at the “Mighty Millennium Falcon”, which takes place of the Mighty Eagle.

The question will now be, how powerful is the millennium falcon? Will it be like mighty eagle or the space eagle?

I really hope the Mighty Millennium Falcon applies to all platforms and not just iOS.

The countdown on starwars.angrybirds.com seems to be counting down to noon PST, so that’s my guess.

They always change the countdown. Now it sais 23 hours left, so it will be out tomorrow at 10am CET.

They added orange into facebook levels, so I think, he would be in ep. 1, 2, or 3 as ex. Jar Jar Binks ;).Or maby he would be Yoda?

Seems as if lasers are an important aspect of the game. They look like they bounce around the screen. Do they target pigs? Do they live forever?

Awwww, man. The blue birds have the same ability as they usualy do. I do like the strategy they jsed with the red bird (Luke) as they deflected laser with the lightsaber. Can the black (Obi Wan) bird do the same thing with the force?

The new game, it’s backgrounds, the new powers and characters look great. The anticipation of the wait is exciting. It appears there are some interesting new ways of destroying the structures and pigs. Looks like another “first class” game from the folks at Rovio.

The anticipation of waiti is marvellous marketing trick by Rovio, we are counting days and hours until release. Angry birds, Angry Birds Space fans are waiting anxiously. I expect the first class game, which could even be better than AB and ABSp. My favorite game and the greatest SF movie series ever is guarantee of an instant success.
Teasers and this trailer proves it is going to be awesome.
This time Thruseday, I believe I would have it downloaded to my iPad.
And As it is going to be great game, and as Rovio puts much in development I sincerelly hope there wouldn’t be major bugs (hope there wouldn’t be bugs at all).

Mashable reports that the Android Amazon store is putting the older games on sale and lists the prices AB SW:
http://mashable.com/2012/11/06/amazon-discounts-angry-birds-pre-star-wars/

“Angry Birds Star Wars is going to cost $0.99 in Amazon Appstore for Android, as well as for iOS, other Android phones, and Windows Phone. The HD version, which runs on iPads, Android tablets and the Kindle Fire, as well as Mac, PC and Windows 8, will cost $2.99 at launch.”

Thanks for this info @Dr-Omega. We will include this as a preliminary guess. Nothing personal against your research, we just know how much Rovio likes to change things on us ;)

Nothing personal for me. I’m just reporting that Mashable is reporting it… It SEEMs logical, based on past apps, but I take nothing as locked in stone until it’s released or reported from an official channel (e.g. Facebook, Rovio.com, Twitter, etc.)

How many Levels and Episodes will we See for the First Update? What do you think about??

O, levels mayby 30 or 50 (it would be great!!!!!!!!) in one episode. I hope it won’t be only 20/30 levels like normally ;)

By NES Boy

I’m thinking for the game’s launch the content would consist of the complete story of the first movie, along with the Hoth section from The Empire Strikes Back.

Slim mentioned the Hangout (on Google) above, which starts at 11 pm Pacific Time (maybe).
Peter Vesterbacka is in San Francisco now, with several other Rovio execs (maybe even 160); LucasFilms is in Sausalito (?), at any rate, very close to San Fran. Sounds like the official launch will take place at LucasFilms. I think the game will be released at 12:01am Pacific Time on 11/8. This info is my read of the tea-leaves above and from Vesterbacka’s twitter feed. I was hoping the launch would be in LA, but maybe there will be a special event here later.

The countdown counter on Angry Birds Star Wars shows less than 3 hours until launch – I’m in Australia & it’s 7am on the 8th here now but in 3 hours it will still be the 7th in many parts of the world – do we think this countdown is correct?? I was expecting it very early on the morning of the 9th here – any other Aussies out there who have worked out the time difference & when it will land?? Little bit excited as you can tell lol….

I’m not from Australia, but it should release the same time everywhere. My counter says 21 hours, so it should be roughly 4:00 AM Sydney time (tomorrow)

By Old Man Bird (@oldmanbird)

I think that the site is set for a certain time zone regardless of what time zone you are visiting the site from. I think that is why there have been so many different times reported. I would guess that @oobgular17 is probably correct about the time it will release there if it is an universally simultaneous release.

Rank: Master Slinger with 6745 points
By Chris (@chriss)

That can’t be true. A countdown is independent from a time zone. “in 23 hours” means “in 23 hours” worldwide, no matter in what time zone you are.
