Rovio told us it’d be coming out May 2nd, and unless my calendar is wrong that day has arrived — Angry Birds Friends is here! This game brings us that classic addictive bird-flinging gameplay, but you can now challenge your friends’ scores, compete on the leaderboards and participate in weekly tournaments. You can also get daily rewards and send “gifts” to friends.

Angry Birds Friends will receive the four usual suspects in terms of power-ups, but it also gains a fifth power-up that no other Angry Birds game has. In short, it’s Angry Birds, but it just got a whole lot more social and competitive. Be sure to give the free game a whirl in the Google Play Store, and don’t forget to complete the tutorial to get free bird-coins.
