Rovio today announced a new mode for Angry Birds Go! The new party mode enables 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. See the above video for a run through of the new party mode and download Angry Birds Go! from the App Store to check it out.
