The first gameplay trailer for Rovio’s Angry Birds Star Wars has been revealed, ahead of the title’s November 8th release date. While the first 30 seconds only shows interaction between the Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia birds, we do get to see approximately 15 seconds of gameplay.
One level takes place on Luke’s home planet of Tatooine, where he is destroying a structure with pigs inside (big surprise there). The next snippet of gameplay is on the ice planet Hoth, where the Leia bird is fighting imperial troops.
The most interesting part about these bits of gameplay is the abilities that the birds have. The Luke bird is able to wield a lightsaber, and inflict major damage on a structure before hitting it. The Leia bird, on the other hand, makes use of a long range laser to dispatch the imperial piggies.
Based on this small amount of gameplay, we can expect Angry Birds Star Wars to not only visit major locations in the Star Wars universe, but also make use of key scenes from the movies.
Angry Birds Star Wars wil arrive on iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows on November 8.
