In other Rovio news… wait, we have Rovio news? I guess we do now. Anyways, the company has made two recent announcements: they are teaming up with Green Day, and they have released Curiosity Rover content.
The first news seems to have come out of nowhere. Rovio is working with rock band Green Day to promote their upcoming album: ¡Uno!. Here’s the catch though: the ten Green Day levels are only available on the Facebook game. It’s not certain if these levels will ever make their way to iOS, but here’s what Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio Marketing Chief, per The Guardian:
For now, the levels will only be available in the Facebook game, rather than the iOS and Android versions of Angry Birds Friends. Vesterbacka hinted that the partnership may extend to mobile devices in the future, though.
“We haven’t announced anything besides the Facebook stuff that is live now, but we view this as a first step in a much bigger co-operation,” he said. “Our fans and Green Day’s fans should expect more of the same surprise and delight. We always want to surprise people!”
Oh, and one more thing. If you own Angry Birds Space (any of the versions), go download it again (or download the update). Following it’s partnership with NASA, Rovio has added 20 new Mars missions that revolve around NASA’s Curiosity Rover, and the premie of the pigs hijacking the rover. How’s that for your Angry Birds fix?
