Now introducing Angry Birds Friends!

Espoo, Finland -- May 23, 2012 -- Rovio Entertainment’s Angry Birds on Facebook has flown the coop and left beta: Welcome to Angry Birds Friends! With tournament mode, new weekly levels, and even more ways to earn power-ups, Angry Birds Friends gives even more possibilities to have fun with friends!

“We can’t wait for our fans to play Angry Birds Friends,” said Petri Järvilehto, EVP of Games at Rovio Entertainment. “These great features add a compelling new dimension to the gameplay that fans already know and love, and with new levels every week, there’s always a new challenge to try!”

Weekly Tournaments

With weekly tournaments in Angry Birds Friends, fans can prove they’re the best Angry Birds player around. Every week, fans have from Monday to Sunday to compete with 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. Angry Birds Friends has four new levels every week, available exclusively in tournament mode, so there are always new levels to check out!

Even more power-ups

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

All this in addition to the features fans already love -- Share & Play, power-ups, and daily rewards -- makes popping pigs with friends more fun than ever!
