Angry Birds Star Wars Heads To Hoth Today

Not so very long ago, in this very galaxy you live in, mobile game developer Rovio released a version of their hit Angry Birds games that was themed after the Star Wars film franchise. For those who have played the Episode IV levels of Angry Birds Star Wars to death, you'll be happy to know that Episode V, the Hoth levels, is being released as a free add-on today. Also, it's launching with an adorable new trailer.

Combining the elements of the more strategic Angry Birds Space with the Sci-Fi antics of the Star Wars universe, Rovio once again captured lightning in a bottle with the their latest hit physics-based bird-flinging game, Angry Birds Star Wars. Complete with levels reminiscent of scenes from the legendary films and bird abilities that mimicked favorite characters (The Luke bird can cut through things with his Light Saber, for instance), Rovio once again had an instant hit on its hands.

Angry Birds Star Wars is a gift that keeps on giving, however, and, starting today, the second pack of levels themed after the second movie in the original film trilogy can be added to your copy of the game at no extra charge. To mark the occasion, the Rovio crew have put together the following, almost too adorable for words, launch trailer.

Word on the street is that, even though there is a Nov. 29 launch date on the Hoth content, Angry Birds Star Wars still has not updated with the new levels just yet. It's supposed to be coming today, though, so keep checking in with the game every few hours until you're happily chucking birds that look like Chewy at giant, robotic walking piggies.
