Rovio Releases ‘Angry Birds Friends’ Facebook Game [VIDEO]

Say hello to Angry Birds Friends, the latest addition to Rovio’s massively hit Angry Birds franchise. However, this one is exclusive to the Facebook platform. Angry Birds Friends, which is also being referred to as Angry Birds for Facebook, is Rovio’s first app for the world’s largest social network that lets users play weekly challenges against their Facebook friends. Players can win power-ups and gold crowns for beating their friends’ scores. Users can also get $1 power-ups beyond pay-to-download options or the Mighty Eagle.

According to Rovio’s official blog:

Weekly Tournaments

Think you’re the best Angry Birds player around? Prove it with new weekly tournaments! Every week, you have from Monday to Sunday to compete with your friends on four different levels. The pig-popper with the best overall score will earn a gold trophy, with silver and bronze for second and third place. Unlike crowns, trophies are yours forever! How many can you collect?

New Weekly Levels

Angry Birds Friends has four new levels exclusively in tournament mode! Make sure to check back for new levels every week! 

Earn more power-ups

In addition to the daily rewards you already get, you can now earn power-ups through tournament mode. Earn three power-ups bundles for a gold trophy, two for silver, and one for bronze. You also get a power-up for each tournament level you play, and one for participating in the tournament!

Happy pig-popping!
