Second Annual Halloween Tournament Coming to Angry Birds Friends

Update 21 October: It seems that the Halloween Tournament will start mid-week, according to a Twitter announcement from Rovio to our favorite on-site sleuthing doctor, @Dr-Omega.

Based on the in-game alert that the current tournament will end in 1 day, we may see the Halloween levels appear on Tuesday. We are trying to determine now what to do about Leaderboards and such.
Update 22 October: Angry Birds Friends v1.3.0 has been released for mobile devices and includes enhanced compatibility with this tournament. Also, the description announces that the tournament will start Wednesday the 23rd.

Lock the doors, board up the windows, and hide grandma in the closet. A second annual Angry Birds Friends Halloween Tournament is coming and it’s bringing the Zombie Pigs back from the undead! Can you help the Angry Birds survive the swinevasion? You’ll be able to try in both Angry Birds Friends on Facebook and in the mobile app.

The tourney will feature one of our favorite features ever in an Angry Birds app: The Zombie Pig! These scary swine come back from the dead, emerging from the Earth to seek revenge on the birds. Remember that you will earn your 5,000 points twice: Once for the green (living) piggy and once for the zombie (undead) piggy.

Rovio is only saying that the tournament is “Coming Soon”, so it should be live either this coming Monday (October 21st) and/or the next week (October 28th). We will also have to wait to see if any other features are added, like an Advent calendar-style release. In the meantime, our tournament walkthroughs can help you through the current week!

Their icon represents this update. If you look at the trailer, you see Red wearing the Frankenstein hat he wears in their icon. But I sure wish that there’ll be a Seasons update. United Nations Day, perhaps.

I agree!
However, I look forward to it in its own right because I got tired of the background of ABF!

In the whole year 2013, there was only one single new episode for AB Seasons. Does anybody think we should still hope for an Advent calendar in December?

While I am happy for the folks that play AB Facebook that will receive this update I am also a bit melancholy because a Halloween update will not be part of AB Seasons.
Played a few levels in the Bad Piggies update which are good but it is just not the same game play, backgrounds, pigs, birds, destruction and overall feeling that a Season’s game provides.
The levels and game play presented in the ABN video look great and are going to be fun for all the FB flingers.

I agree @wrw01 . I don’t really like Bad Piggies, and I don’t like Facebook, so I’m feeling kind of sad that we won’t get a Seasons update.

The Chrome and Google plus games seem to have been abandoned, so now I’m wondering if I should get another free email address just to use to join FB just to play ABF.

I know there is one, I think it’s the phone one where you don’t have to log in, but I expect it’s more fun when you play with other people. I guess I will have to bite the bullet and try it.
