Rovio teases “Escape from Hoth” update for Angry Birds: Star Wars

Rovio has a fun way of teasing what they’re looking to do with each update for Angry Birds: Star Wars, and yet another teaser has been posted to the developer’s Twitter account. It’s an image that features a Millenium Falcon drifting off into a tunnel that we imagine will lead to some mystical underground planet. In the tweet, Rovio used the hashtag “#EscapeFromHoth” which would indicate that the birds are trying to make their way off the planet featured in the previous update.

While this isn’t the first of these images we’ve seen, Rovio doesn’t always use the “#comingsoon” hashtag used to tease this one, so we can definitely expect some sort of update in the near future. With each update typically comes a new element of gameplay. Whether it be new birds, new powers for existing birds or new physics to overcome, it will be interesting to see what, exactly, we’re getting.

Unfortunately Rovio decided not to go into much more detail, but if the update is as fun as the others have been then we know we’re i for a pretty nice treat. Expect at least 15 new levels whenever it does arrive.

    Have you ever even *seen* Empire Strikes Back? Obviously that’s the Millennium Falcon leaving an asteroid. (Also: 1) How can a planet be underground? 2) You misspelled “Millennium.”)

    Please return your geek card immediately.

      Actually that looks like the falcon entering the asteroid, the one with the giant worm in it. So why cant there be a whole level in the belly of the beast ??

    Xmichaelx, you need to return your card also. You can clearly see them ENTERING the asteroid, not leaving it.
