Angry Birds is coming to Facebook
If Rovio’s intention to ensure Angry Birds is available to play anywhere and everywhere wasn’t clear to you before today, then news of a Facebook version in development should remove any remaining doubt.
A page has appeared on Facebook announcing that Angry Birds is coming to the social network, and that you can be one of the first to hear when it goes live by clicking the Facebook Like button.
While the game has the potential to be as big as Zynga games on Facebook, Rovio clearly wants Angry Birds to be synonymous with gameplay on all platforms. After topping the charts in the App Store, the game is now available on Android Market, the Mac App Store, Intel AppUp, and is heading to Windows Phone 7 this spring as well as Xbox 360 and PS3. If you’ve hacked your Kinect it’s also possible to play the game using motion control.
Mikael Hed, boss of Rovio, has stated that Angry Birds on Facebook will bring new elements to the game due to its social nature. For example, we can expect the pigs to feature more prominently in this version.
For the moment there is no release date stated for Angry Birds on Facebook. Fans of the game do have something to look forward to, though, as Angry Birds Rio is set to launch on March 22 offering up 45 new levels.
