Finally confirming months of rumors, Activision has revealed that Angry Birds Star Wars will be releasing for the PS4 and Xbox One on their respective launch dates. The final price comes in at $49.99, with no mention made of a possible upgrade program for the game.
The PS4 version will include all the features seen on PS3/PS Vita (20 exclusive levels, over 200 stages from the mobile release, HD visuals, trophies, leaderboards), along with PlayStation Move and DualShock 4 TouchPad support. Specifically for the TouchPad, you can expect precise “touch-screen handling.” Unfortunately, the PS4 version of Angry Birds Star Wars won’t include the timed challenges that are offered on Xbox One.
Jami Laes, Executive Vice President of Games at Rovio Entertainment, had this to say of Angry Birds Star Wars:
Angry Birds Star Wars brings together fans from multiple generations and across two widely loved fictional worlds. The success of Angry Birds Star Wars is a testament to the versatility of these iconic franchises. As a company we want to be where-ever the fans are, so we are thrilled to be partnering with Activision to bring this one-of-a-kind experience to console and handheld gaming fans.
If you’d rather not wait until the next-gen versions, the PS3 and PS Vita versions are out now for $39.99, with the game also available for Wii U, Xbox 360, Wii and 3DS.
