(Newser) – Our avian friends are still fuming—and this time, the fate of the galaxy is at stake. A new edition of Rovio's Angry Birds is on its way, set in the world of Star Wars. Set for release Nov. 8 on iOS, Android, Windows 8, and Mac, the game will feature birds as rebel forces and evil pigs as Empire baddies. "You will see a pig-esque Vader and pig-esque stormtroopers," says a company rep. Players will duke it out on Tattooine, Hoth, and other Star Wars settings. The game is even inspiring its own line of Angry Birds merchandise, hitting stores a week before the game's release, USA Today reports.
