Rovio is at it again! With Thanksgiving just around the corner (at least here in the US), Rovio is teasing a brand new update for Angry Birds original!
Not only will this update bring a whopping 30 new levels, it looks like Bomb the Black Bird will be getting an overhaul. According to the Angry Birds Shop:
Introducing Bomb Bird’s electrifying new Shock Wave power – featured in the upcoming 30-level Angry Birds update! Get the exclusive, ultra limited edition Shock Wave T-shirt only from the Angry Birds Online Shop!
That’s all the information that Rovio is releasing for now, but we never stop at the facts, do we? Of course not, we love to speculate!
- We expect the update to land within the next couple of weeks for most platforms.
- Since we’re desperately hoping for a 4th-annual Advent Calendar update to Seasons, it might make sense for the update to land before 1 December. (We have no inside knowledge about this, but Seasons is my favorite app.)
- Also, we think the “Shockwave” ability will only apply to the new episode, and will not be retroactive across the existing 400+ levels. This would match Red’s homing ability being exclusive to Red’s Mighty Feathers.
- We no longer think that this update will be “Danger Above II“.
- This one is actually true. The Golden Egg #30 Bug should be fixed in this forthcoming update, according to Rovio Support. Of course, both they and we will try to manually confirm the fix when the update lands.
