Today Angry Birds(tm) Star Wars(r) has launched for home and hand-held video game systems. Based on
Rovio's wildly popular, action-strategy mobile game, Angry Birds Star Wars brings
the interstellar struggle between the ragtag Rebel Birds and dastardly Imperial Pigs
to new audiences on the Xbox 360(r) games and entertainment system from Microsoft,
PlayStation(r)3 computer entertainment system and PlayStation(r)Vita handheld
entertainment system, Nintendo's Wii(tm) and Wii U(tm) systems and the Nintendo
3DS(tm) handheld system. Angry Birds Star Wars is also planned to launch on Xbox
One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Sony's
PlayStation(r)4 computer entertainment system, when these new next-gen consoles
arrive in November.

"Angry Birds Star Wars brings together fans from multiple generations and across two
widely loved fictional worlds," noted Jami Laes, Executive Vice President of Games
at Rovio Entertainment. "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."

Angry Birds Star Wars marries the fantastic spirit, legendary characters and classic
imagery of Star Wars(tm) with the accessibly engaging design and energetic gameplay
of Angry Birds(tm), thrusting players into a captivating, lighthearted adventure
saga, featuring inventive challenges, tantalizing Force powers and a wealth of
familiar faces and places. Twenty exclusive, newly created levels join the over 200
stages already available from the original mobile release of Angry Birds Star Wars.
This latest version brings the flock to the fight with the introduction of
cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes, letting players team up or square off
for high scores and galactic bragging rights. Moreover, this expansive edition
exploits the unique capabilities of each game system to deliver a distinctive
experience tailored specifically to each platform, including sharp and colorful,
high-definition visuals (on HD-compatible devices), achievements and trophies,
leaderboards, voice command support through Kinect for Xbox 360, and touch-screen
controls on Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation(r)Vita system.

The next-generation versions of Angry Birds Star Wars maintain these core features
while introducing new play and interface elements exclusive to each system. The
PlayStation(r)4 system's adaptation makes full use of the DualShock 4 controller's
touchpad to offer precision, touch-screen handling, paired with full support for
PlayStation(r)Move in both single-player and local multiplayer modes. Players can
also easily record and share their accomplishments with the world with the
PlayStation(r)4 system's automatic screenshot and video capture options. Angry Birds
Star Wars on Xbox One also allows for automatic video capture and online sharing,
while adding all the benefits of the system's improved Kinect for Xbox One
functionality, affording intuitive gesture and motion controls, as well as voice
command support. The Xbox One iteration of Angry Birds Star Wars also includes
unique, timed challenges that deliver fresh trials for players well after the game's
launch.

Angry Birds Star Wars is available now for a suggested retail price of $49.99 for
Wii U, $39.99 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation(r)3 system, PlayStation(r)Vita system
and Wii, and $29.99 for Nintendo 3DS. The PlayStation(r)4 system and Xbox One
versions will be available for each console's respective launch in November, both
priced at $49.99. The game is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB. For more information,
