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.

    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.I definitely agree with you, I really hope for an advent/1 level per day format just like Season’s Greedings and Summer Pignic.

    Oh yes, I agree. I really like the 1 level per day – it makes the game last so much longer and gives me incentive to try to improve my daily score beyond my normal ‘get three stars and move on’ mode.

    I disagree. I think rushing will result in bugs. I’d like to see a 1 Dec. release with an Advent calendar again, but there’s no evidence of that. Just speculation.

    Agreed Slim, Most likely will follow last year’s christmas release which was Dec 1st. Expect the same release date for this year’s christmas. Just like the new Ham’0’ween update was released on the same day as last year’s halloween.

    By JeeJee

    an advent calendar would be great; simultaneous daily PC updates would be better (but I shan’t hold my breath for that).

    Also, maybe a future xmas update could be called “Ham for the Holidays”. Just a thought. “Wreck the Halls” is great too.

    By Pig stomper

    They should do one for thanksgiving and have a guest appearance of a turkey. Ham and turkey are both traditional thanksgiving meals.

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Looks unlikely, at least this year. Perhaps because Thanksgiving (in the US) does not align in time with a “Thanksgiving” equivalent in other countries. It is also very specific to the US, which is not a rapidly growing market for AB (compared to China, for example).

    Rank: Champion with 3240 points
    By heathen (@heathen)

    I second a Thanksgiving season to be included. It seems absolute insane to have a bird themed game combined with multi-holidays settings and NOT have Thanksgiving included. Emerging markets or not, this is a gift wrapped theme situation.

    Bring it on! The more, the better… and the good thing about Angry Birds, is that there are just too many themes they can go with.

    Just for example: for this Christmas season, they could add a penguin to the bunch that slides across the ice and takes out blocks!

    I was even thinking about an Angry Birds: Paradise… where they visit Madagascar to free the birds of paradise from the pigs!

    Just to many too even think about! They’ve barely even scratched the surface with the amount of different birds we have…

    Woo! Although I know that Christmas is special, it would have been cool for them to do a New Years theme this year, (considering they did Christmas last year).

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Yes, my question is directed to you. Do you have any evidence of your claims?

    — Do you have evidence that the 2012 Seasons will precisely match the 2011 Seasons? I would think Rovio would swap a few maybe for other themes, such as Independence Day.

    — How do you know the Orange Bird will still appear? We all assume it will, but it’s nothing more than an assumption. Also, what “female” white and red birds? The way they are right now is simply the way it plays.

    — We know the Boomerang Bird will be in Rio (we have seen the data files), but do you have any evidence of the Orange Bird making an appearance?

    I don’t think that the Orange Bird will appear because there has been one bird added per episode.

    You can see the female red and white birds on the wiki. They are from Valentines day. Kind of the same thing as the Develepers Birds.

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    That Wiki is bloody nonsense. Don’t believe anything they say. They stole my World Traveler idea and claimed it was Rovio-official. They claimed Wreck the Halls was set to release on Dec. 1 with a Golden Egg in level 1-3. And they claimed the episode after Wreck would be Valentine’s Day.

    The point is, there is no proof of any of these claims.

    Rank: Out of this World with 2555 points
    By Codebreak (@codebreak)

    I don’t believe anything. I laughed to myself when I saw the white and Red female birds. I compared them to the developer birds as to say they were fake. The wiki has some good things but mostly as you said bloody nonsense.

    I speculate it’s not so easy to change the Season’s current physics engine and gameplay while preserving backward compatibility with the previous episodes and devices. In rio, which was a new game, they could add new features easily…

    Of course you never really know, that’s just my point of view as a programmer. Would like to be proven wrong! ;-)

    It’s nice to get seasonal updates for AB Seasons. But what about summer? There was only one episode for the entire season. How about a 4th of July episode? Or a Star Wars episode taking place inside the Death Star with lightsabres falling through blocks and the pigs wearing Darth Vader masks?

    There are two thanksgivings right? So what they could do is find the middle day in between them and release an update for thanksgiving!

    I think Thanksgiving is more of an American holiday. I remember there was a asian contest when the mooncake festival came out. Maybe the eposide was kinda tied in with their trip to China.
