Angry Birds Star Wars will launch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 "when these next-gen consoles arrive in November," developer Rovio Entertainment announced today.
According to Rovio, next-gen editions of the game will include new interface elements for each system. PS4 owners will be able to use the PlayStation Move for single and multiplayer modes, as well as record video and screenshots with the console's capture options. The Xbox One offers similar capture features per its capabilities, as well as voice and motion controls with the Kinect. The Xbox One edition of Angry Birds Star Wars will also feature new timed challenges.
Last week, the Entertainment Software Rating Board rated Angry Birds Star Wars for next-gen consoles. The game launched for Windows PC, iOS and Android in November, 2012; releases for Mac and Blackberry followed. As of today, Angry Birds Star Wars is also available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
Angry Birds Star Wars 2 launched last month for iOS and Android, while a Windows PC release followed last week.
