Not long ago, Rovio released their official statement regarding the gameplay of Angry Birds Star Wars II, which will be arriving on iOS (Universal), Android on September 19th. (Be sure to check out that post since it contains a bunch of information about gameplay.)
Over the next few weeks, Rovio will be releasing “Introductory Videos” featuring the characters from Angry Birds Star Wars II. You can see all these videos here, or you can watch them on the official Angry Birds Star Wars II webpage.

I like the Lightning power from the Emperor!
Thanks great news! I can’t wait!!
Emperor Palpatone’s power is very cool.
By the way, Did anyone notice the MAP like thing, in Emperor video at 0:12 ?
Yes, maybe some kind of Bonus level, and did you saw the box with the exclamation mark in the video from Zam Wesell a 0:14 ?
So, there are some collectible items in ABSW2.
May be, it will unlock new levels or new birds, for example, like Boba Fett missions.
@josm , when you are playing and find a level with the box with the exclamation mark, please let me know what they do. So far i cannot make the shots required lol to get the couple i have noticed. I think i will need to buy a special bird to get them !
@grammyk just for finishing the achievement i think
@Josm , thanks for reply, well, i managed to hit one and got a gold wrench. Lol. No message as to what it was for and i wasnt paying attention to my score or coins etc. This game is awesome as there are so many things to figure out but still all within true angry birds feel.
Well, I figured out what they are but will leave it a mystery for others who like to figure things out on their own :-)we
The Emperor was always going to be very cool, very cool indeed :D The TIE pilot’s powers look straight forward, but you need something fairly predictable to get started.
The Droideka and Zam Wesell look exceptionally intriguing! The bouncing could be something that’s deployed in various fiendish ways, with plenty of scope for hefty scoring. But that hook… wow. that could be a really tricksy game mechanic to get your head round :D
Yessss great thing. I missed the clearer news of ABSW2 but now their are first Details. Cool Clips. Can’t wait for it!!
All characters seem cool. Different strategies to go…
Are all characters unlocked within the game or we have to buy telepods?
@waelman I hope not. I don’t ever know availability of toys around my area and don’t often go looking. I would expect that to push the Telepods certain characters might only be unlocked after a certain amount of time.
Don’t see how they can charge for specific character abilities that are required to complete the game that you couldn’t buy from within the game. Still a bit much to charge for a required character rather than wait for it to be unlocked, like we’re used to :)
The Tie-Fighter Pilot will only be playable with the use of Telepods, or not?
@Miezko All Characters are obtainable without buying telepods, i read something about coins you can earn in the game
The magnet in the Tie… Video lets the Pig fly another Way, that’s cool!
The magnet also appears in the Droideka’s video as well, draging some blocks near it. It looks like it’ll have more than one use.
droideka looks funny :D
Answer from rovio regarding ABSW 2 for PC
“It’s not launching on PC, but maybe later. We’ll see”
Hope it will not be like AA for PC (they have said coming soon for more then a year now)
AA for PC is cancelled, and yes lets hope that there’s an PC/Mac Release coming Sometime!
I believe AA is Amazing Alex.
yes. AA is Amazing Alex
yup i tweeted them, messaged them on fb and also mailed them and i also got the same reply…Dunno why they have decided not to launch for PC. AA was cancelled because that game couldn’t survive after weeks of its launch. But this app, ABSW-II will be sure shot hit..
Im wondering if they will have characters from the Clone Wars TV series in this game. Can anyone see and Ashoka looking shapes in the characters page?
Sorry, typo. any, not and.
I’m just wondering what the battle droid’s will look like. If you looks closely in some of the sets, the blocks are just battle droids with pigs faces.
Now we know that the second part of each world (pork side) is fighting against the birds!
Droideka’s move is just like in the fan video the purple bird
Wow, outstanding previews. The moves of Droideka appear to be new, somewhat like a pinball machine. New games are coming and that is always exciting.
So many characters’ names need to remember :P Just 3 more weeks!
Yess!! The previews are finally out! Here are my thoughts (in order):
The Emperor has always been(besides Darth of course) my favorite pig character in ABSW, and has always anticipated his arrival in the game. However, even before he makes an appearance in ABSW, he first makes a debut in ABSWII! How ironic. Anyways, I seem to find a slight change in design for the Emperor from ABSW to ABSWII. He seems smaller, the skin tone is lighter, and the crown is larger. (LOVE the addition of the crown btw) Being the (true) dark lord of the dark(pork) side, I have very high expectations for the character. The final ability that was assigned to him seems perfectly logical, as the character in movies is most popular with his iconic lighting blast in the movies, especially in the climax of the trilogy. How Rovio manages to implement it in the game, however, is another matter entirely. I expected the ability to be most bombastic, with lightning shooting out in all directions in a radius and vaporizing everything in its radius. Of course I knew that it would not become reality, thus I look forward to it. Rovio’s approach is most interesting. Instead of a normal blast of lightning that does the same damage as, let’s say, a blaster, Rovio chose the lighting to deal more damage by ‘chain lighting’, the lightning races up the obstacle and does damage to it. Impressed by this, I am!
More thoughts to come soon below, just wait till I get to the Droikia! (Is that how u spell it?)
Guys, I just looked at Angry Bird’s facebook page, someone asked them If ABST2 would be available for PC. This is what Angry Birds replied:
“It’s not launching on PC, but we may have plans for something post-launch.”
What could this mean?
It means that absw2 might come for pc but it might take some time
No, I mean the “We may have something planned for post-launch” part.
does sound like an odd way of putting it, I’ll grant you. Could have said “it’s in the pipeline!” or something :)
@xano2323 The post launch period is the period right after the cart closes. It is often the most underutilized phase of the launch sequence.
I can’t wait! The game looks great.
I have the temptation to fall on the pork side!!!
“More #AngryBirdsStarWars2 characters will be revealed tomorrow”

thank You @bad-piggies-2 more power than ABSW 1
These new characters look awesome! So many possibilities…can’t wait!
Zam in the movie is a female so is she going to be played by female pig?
Can someone tell me how I get enough character points for each character to open up its reward levels? I got some during game play, but cant figure out how to get more. Do I just play an episode over and over and over again? Ive 3 starred all levels of play
You can learn a bit more about this in our Characters Guide.
