‘Angry Birds Friends’ Out Now on the Microsoft Store (PC)
With the Angry Birds once again gracing movie theaters worldwide in The Angry Birds Movie 2, the enraged avians are also coming to your Windows 10 PC via Angry Birds Friends, which releases today — free to download* — on the Microsoft Store.
Angry Birds Friends offers the quintessential bird-flinging, pig-popping Angry Birds experience, but adds a fun competitive layer with bite-sized tournaments to pit yourself against your friends’ slingshot skills. With new tournaments released every week and thousands of levels to enjoy, the destruction is almost endless.
To get yourself up to speed with Angry Birds Friends, the development team at Rovio HQ recently talked about the game over on the Rovio Entertainment YouTube channel.
“We’re excited to release two of our most popular Angry Birds games on Windows 10, increasing their visibility and availability during this important period,” says Alex Pelletier-Normand, Rovio’s Head of Games. “We look forward to releasing Angry Birds 2 in September, and in the meantime hope Windows 10 PC users enjoy the fun and competitive element of Friends.”
