Angry Birds Celebrates Freddie Mercury With Queen-Themed Tournament

Gamers who play Angry Birds during the current week will find that Freddie Mercury, the late Queen fronter, has been added to the list of "Angry Birds Friends," allowing players to participate in a Queen themed tournament.

Those playing the game will have to negotiate several obstacles from the Queen catalog, including a giant bicycle, a crown and four Mercury inspired poses.

"Freddie Bird," a character based on the singer, makes an appearance in the game, although players cannot play as the character.

Game maker Rovio Entertainment is running the "Freddie For A Day" tournament on Angry Birds Friends, available to play on Facebook or mobile between September 2-8.

Earlier this year, Rovio released an update to the game featuring Slash as a character.
