PREVIEW: Angry Birds' Landing On Facebook For V-Day

Two of the most notorious time-wasters will be set up with each other on Valentine’s Day, as Angry Birds will launch on Facebook, and developer Rovio previewed some of its features.

Angry Birds for Facebook will include social features, allowing players to compete against their friends, boast about their scores, and earn gold, silver, or bronze crowns for achieving the top three scores at any of the game’s levels.

The Facebook version of the game will also feature the following power-ups:

  • Sling Scope, which gives players access to laser targeting for precise aim;

  • King Sling, an upgrade that provides maximum power and velocity;

  • Super Seeds, which “turn any bird into a pig-popping giant”; and

  • Birdquake, which helps players take out the pigs’ defenses.

There will be a launch event on Facebook, as well as local activities in Jakarta, Bangkok, and Mumbai, Rovio said.
