Rovio today announced a new mode for Angry Birds Go! The new party mode will enable players to race against their friends on multiple devices, all connected through Wi-Fi. Local multiplayer gameplay allows for a more competitive and social experience compared to playing against the AI.

The feature is only enabled for one vs. one play for the time being, but Rovio plans to allow party play at a later date. This would enable groups of friends to all play in the same race simultaneously. We've checked the store but have been unable to see the update on Android just yet. This could well be a case of waiting for the release to propagate through Google services.

See the above video for a run through of the new party mode and download Angry Birds Go! from the Google Play Store to prepare for the new mode. We'll let you know when the update goes live.
