Angry Birds maker Rovio last weekend updated the Seasons game with 25 appropriately-themed winter holiday levels. As was the case with a similar update last holiday, each subsequent level becomes available every 24 hours, which is reliant on an internet connection as the game needs to talk to the Rovio cloud to unlock new content on a daily basis. If you do the math, the 25th level is scheduled for unlocking on the big day of December 25.
The winter-style environment features aurora borealis and includes three secret levels, a new slip and slide ice element and the usual amount of bird flinging and pigs popping. You’ll also need to watch out for a special Harbin level, created in honor of the upcoming Angry Birds area in the Ice and Snow World in Harbin, China…
From iTunes release notes:
It’s a snowy winter night, the northern lights are ablaze, and it seems like peace on earth… until the bad piggies show up! The Angry Birds didn’t realize that they’re walking in a winter wonderham!
Rovio also announced Angry Birds Friends Winter tournament on Facebook from December 3 – 30, 2012.
The Finnish developer has been updating the game with seasonal content packs ranging from Halloween to Back To School. As a result, the Seasons game now contains more than three hundred themed levels.
Angry Birds Seasons version 3.1 is free for those who purchased the game. If you don’t have it yet, Angry Birds Seasons will set you back 99 cents in the iPhone version, or three bucks for the high-definition iPad build.
