Angry Birds Seasons Wreck the Halls Coming Soon

Another day, another teaser. Fresh on the heels of the leaked Angry Birds Rio Smugglers’ Plane images comes these images of the what will likely be be the next Angry Birds Seasons update. “Wreck the Halls” — or so it’s currently called — will be a Christmas / Wintery holiday theme. I normally don’t post something like this so early, but if you guys are anything like me I just can’t get enough of Angry Birds Seasons — especially this time of year. The images below obviously came from Game Center, but that’s all I will say about them at this point.

Update: At about 2:00 PM PST the “Wreck the Halls” icon, total score leaderboard, and achievements started showing up in Game Center. This could mean an update will land soon. If it’s an advent calendar (i.e. one level per day) like Seasons Greedings I’d expect to see it land tonight and contain 25 levels. Time will tell! Note, the four new achievements are hidden.

Now, here is what we DON’T know:

  1. We have no idea when this will be released
  2. There is no info on whehter it will be a full release or one level per day. I know many of you will disagree, but I hope for the advent style again.
  3. The name and icon could change. I hope the name sticks though, as it’s great.
  4. Will there be an explosive glitch that turns pigs into dynamite? One can wish!

Without further adieu, here are the images.

A BIG high five \o/ to [you know who you are] for tipping us off to this.

If Wreck the Halls is released on December 1st, then we could start seeing new game center achievements popping up by tomorrow. Let’s hope. Anyone else think so?

BirdLeader and I were actually just having this conversation about an hour ago. We both hope for a 1 Dec., advent-style release, but Rovio hasn’t given any hints about it.

As a “Devil’s Advocate” re: achievements, it is possible that Wreck the Halls is a scheduled release. That is, already submitted (and perhaps approved) by Apple, but with specific instructions that it be released at a specific time. In this case, GameCenter is not updated until immediately before the release.

As an example, Summer Pignic was a scheduled release (for the Summer Solstice, 8am UTC on 22 Jun) and we saw no forewarning on GameCenter. Perhaps we will see the same thing here (8am UTC on 1 Dec).

Disclaimer: This is all speculation.

But helpful speculation, nonetheless.

I just checked Game Center and ran over here to see if there was any hope still for an Advent-style release Dec. 1st.
I agree it is still speculation, but at least the insightful details you and BL allows us to hold out hope.

Thanks. Seasons is by far my fav iteration of AB, and even moreso when the episode employs the level-per-day scheme.

Avatar of iamMightyRank: Master Slinger with 6660 points

Yes,thats coming soon.
By the Way, What 1.3.2 version are you talking about Rio or Seasons?
As Seasons is now updated to v1.4.0 for PC
And Rio v1.3.2 for PC.

Rank: Sling God with 27390 points

Seasons is 2.0.0….

Uh oh. 2 days till December and nothing heard from them? Usually we have game center achievements 2 days before… Maybe it’s not coming till late December. I guess this rules out an advent calendar.

As the post says, we have no idea when the update will land for any device.

don’t updates come 4 hours early. so that means 8:00 on november 31.

Rank: Sling God with 27390 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

The level updates for Summer Pignic were 8AM UTC.

By Chris

The new achievements and the new icon are in Game Center. So the update will be tomorrow!! (1st December)

Rank: Sling God with 27390 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Good find. For those who want to see, here is the new icon.

My achievements are hidden, but the count says 4 new. So the assumption is:

10pts: Break 300 _____
10pts: Finish Wreck the Halls
30pts: Total Destruction
10pts: Score Addict

Yes, Score Addict seems to be only 10pts this time, instead of the usual 30. This is because GameCenter only allows 1000pts total, and ABS was at 924 SD (920 HD) before this update. Now it will be 984/980.

By Angry_Bird (@angry_bird)

So does that mean there will be no more achievements for seasons?

Rank: Sling God with 27390 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

That’s not the solution a priori. There is a similar issue with ABo. I believe Rovio will either try to cometo some accord with Apple or create their own system.

By sSebi

In the Leaderboards showing now Wreck the Hall Total Score :D

Rank: Sling God with 27390 points

Yes, that goes along with the achievements listed above.

Ohhhh Sorry ;)

Thanks for the update on Wreck The Halls bird leader!!! I can’t wait till tomorrow for it! Any idea what time it will be available eastern standard time?

Rank: Sling God with 27390 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Our best guess is 8am UTC = 3am Eastern = 12am Cali. But this is based solely on Summer Pignic and Rovio may choose something different.

By James

cool thanks man sounds good to me!

By banzaigtv (@banzaigtv)

Looks like I’m not interested in it right now since this will not hit the PC/Mac versions until at least February. I’ll just play Seasons Greedings this December and play Wreck the Halls in December 2012. All 2011 episodes will be played in 2012, 2012 episodes played in 2013, and so on. ABS was released on PC/Mac a year late, so there will be a one-year lag in seasons episodes. That way, I’ll look forward to starting a new episode right on time for the holiday, not after the holiday has already gone by.

By JeeJee

your logic seems faulty; we did get Ham’o’ween for PC (along with the rest of the ABS official release) on Halloween. I don’t foresee one-year lags in seasons episodes, and I predict we’ll see at least some Wreck the Halls levels in December.

I just checked Game Center on my iPad, and it has the new icon and shows 58 achievements. But on my iPhone, it shows the previous icon and only 54 achievements. Strange.

Same way it was when it was released on mobile. Basically, it will match “Wreck” one day at a time.
