Angry Birds Star Wars II has just received the new Galactic Giveaway update, scattering 1,000 coins of in-game currency throughout the game.
The coins have been hidden throughout Angry Birds Star Wars II’s existing levels, so you're going to have to revisit stages if you want to find all 1,000.
Once collected, the coins can be used to permanently unlock more of the game's cast from the store.
The inclusion of a collectable currency actually solves one of the few complaints we had about Angry Birds Star Wars II, when we reviewed it last year, by easing its reliance on in-app purchases.
This Galactic Giveaway is not limited to coins, however. Carbonite Rewards add another way to get at the game’s extras, with a carbonite block slowly melting to unlock additional characters.
The update will also now let you use any of the cast across both the Bird and Pork side levels. You will be able to throw birds around the levels that were exclusively for pigs, and visa versa, putting a fresh twist on old stages.
The Galactic Giveaway update is available for Angry Birds Star Wars II players right now, with the game available for 69p / 99c.
