Angry Birds Friends is coming to Android and iOS on May 2nd, 2013 (that’s this Thursday). You heard right! Angry Birds Friends is becoming a native mobile app! Ironically, this very idea was discussed in our forums when Angry Birds Friends first launched. It’s great to see them bringing the fun of weekly tournaments to additional platforms.
As with the web based version you will be able to:
- Compete in weekly tournaments against your Facebook friends across platforms. You’ll be competing for the coveted trophies (bronze, silver and gold)
- Brag to your friends about your amazing score!
- Purchase and send Power-ups to friends.
- There will likely be daily rewards, which could include free Power-Ups
No word on exactly when we can expect Angry Birds Friends to land on mobile, but if you’re curious and haven’t played it previously you can check it out Angry Birds Friends on Facebook to get an idea of what it’s like.
The questions that remain:
- Will the web based and mobile versions be the same, so that players can compete across all platforms? That would be awesome…and ideal.
- Will Pigini Beach be included?
- How will new levels be pushed to the game? I imagine it will be similar to how the daily levels have worked in Seasons.
If I had to guess, I’d say probably not.
i can’t wait for that
Yes! Hope people that do not have facebook can play this :)
Having a Facebook account is required to compete with friends.
do you think we can still play without a FB account?
Yes, but maybe people that do not have facebook can play the other levels like pigini beach without competing with friends.
Yay! Now G+ users can join the fun!!
@souperbrick Google plus users? Where did you find this?
This is great, especially for iOS users, since Flash is unsupported in any iDevice.
I have to agree with @truckdriver since I play on an iPad. It will be fun to be able to actually play over the iOS device now. I do not have access to a computer all the time on the road.
Personally, I’m looking forward to this. Indeed, I can feel the build up of anticipation that is best described as being like a kid at Christmastime.
Thursday is going to be a good day!
I’m so happy right now
Any idea when soon is?
Probably on a Thursday.
Wow!!!Really?!This will be good!
I need to know if this is coming to kindle. I mean, Amazon Appstore is basically Android.
I hope this doesn’t require a Facebook account. I’m not allowed to get one. :( I just want AB Friends for the weekly levels.
it needs facebook because you can brag to your friends
I’m curious what about levels that have passed. Will they be still available to play?
Past tournament levels aren’t logged (besides here on ABN, anyways)
Finally I can play these tournaments. I have no idea what it is playing AB without my Ipad. Can’t wait.
I JUST started playing on my computer at work and using a mouse takes some getting used to for sure.
Do you think we need to play with an internet connection like with The croods? or is it possible to download the weekly levels as in Amazing alex?
@jos We need help from @AMslimfordy in this question.
No word on how the weekly levels will be delivered.
Yess great News. A Brand New app. Can’t wait playing the tournaments :-)
If the mobile version still needs Facebook access,it’ll make no difference to me,’cause i’m native to one of those SICK countries.
Well I’ll keep saying this as it’ll be proven true almost every time: when this lands on the iOS and Android stores, they’ll eventually have to release the free version of it later on, or they might bypass that and just make this one free altogether.
Yay! I am very happy today to know that I can play AB Friends on Android :-)
Is this also comming with facebook login
I didn’t play AB Friends for a long time because I need a strong internet access, and my Android have that strong internet access. This app will be great!
I too have the same problem…hope it helps on mobile
Maybe it’ll use rovio accounts
@doodle-sandwich No, I surely hope it will use Facebook account.
Er… I think rovio adds a “Download new levels!” on this app, same as Amazing Alex.
Sorry for asking such silly question but what can I do if NONE of my FB friends play Angry Birds Friends? I really don’t have many FB friends, I add only those whom I know from my real life and as far as I know they don’t play games on FB. Can I still play for my own fun without anybody else know what I am doing?
@cosmo2503 Yes, you can still play AB Friends if your friends don’t play on Facebook.You can play weekly tournaments without any FB Friends, get coins and much more :-D
FB Friends provides you with two built in competitors! if you have none.
Yip, Built-in competitors are Yellow bird and Red bird. Yellow bird’s score is always highest in weekly tournaments.
No, Yellow bird always has the 1-star score while the red bird has 2-star score
No, I mean yellow bird’s TOTAL SCORE of weekly tournament is higher than red bird. Please see the total score of weekly tournament instead of seeing the STARS.
Even when I am seeing the scores,YB has 550,740 points(3rd place) while RB has 574,220(2nd place).
Red Bird always had 2-star scores, and so he ranks higher than Yellow for the Tournament.
@amandeep are YB and RB virtual or their scores are the highet scores of real players without showing their identity since I am not on their friends list?
@cosmo2503 Yellow Bird and Red Birds are as CPU competitors. There are six levels in every weekly tournaments. You have to complete each level and beat their scores. If your total six levels score higher than RB and YB, then you won the tournament and you will get 200 coins. But you have to check your score regularly until WT ends. They both are not real, if you have Facebook friends who don’t play AB Friends, then RB & YB scores will be highest.
@amandeep thanks for clarification. I am total ignorant when it is about aBF rules. However I can’t wait for mobile version at least I’ll give it try.
AMslimfordy Sorry, I was confused
@amandeep birdcoins are bought for real money and I just wonder how payment system will work as I am going to use it.
@cosmo2503 BirdCoins can also be earned by winning tournaments. That is the reason I did not pay for coins, cause I haven’t any credit card.
@amandeep thatnk you for info. I thought there are some kind of rewards for completing tourment, but such rewards are usually not enough.
Will it be free?
It will be free but it will contain in app purchase
And simlar to fb ab friends
It can contain , limited mighty eagle
Should we add “I think” to this? There’s no evidence.
Wonder if credits will be available and if you then have the same amount as on ABfriends on the computer.
YEAH! This is what I wait for!
Let’s hope they gift a limited version for who doesn’t log in with facebook.
@NerdyBird Angry Birds 2 ??
@NerdyBird But Rovio announced nothing. :-0
Something that we have discussed and expected. ABO have to many episodes, there is no other company that provides free updates for more then three years, it is time for AB 2.
@cosmo2503 Good news ! So it will named as AB 2 instead of some other name.
Cool second game of angry birds to much mb’s is making the download & game really slow hopefully this is more then just ABO :)
I asked Angry Birds on Twitter and all they did was say DUN DUN DUN
Wonder if it will land on other Platforms, I don’t have a Facebook account and I would love to try it out.
I think that new Angry Birds tournament levels will begin downloading automatically when you open the app, just like in Where’s My Water’s Levels of the Week.
I too hope so….
i hope rovio make a pc version
There is a “pc version”…. Just visit: friends.angrybirds.com
AB Friends mobile app will release on Thursday
Thursday is a bad day, because the tournament ends on Sunday. It should have come out on a Monday.
Well, you can install it on monday too ;) but i cant wait!
Awesome! I am jumping around of joy and excitement. I wonder how will they solve IAPs when play on two different platforms and different stores. As far as I know power ups on FB might be bought using pay pal account, but I am not sure about actual store.
@cosmo2503 We can buy power-ups also with Coins in AB Friends. :-D
Oooo…. I just playing around with my Android on Facebook, and I went to the game. They said that it’s now available on Android Market. But when I clicked the “Click Here…”, it leads me to nowhere. So it’ll be released May 2nd. Nice treat, 3 days to go.
I dont Play ABF before. Is there One Level per week?
@CC-Jolly No, Six new levels per week :-)
Ok thanks @aman
