With the holiday season in full swing, Rovio has announced the second annual Angry Birds Friends winter tournament on Facebook! Interestingly, the announcement comes by way of the mobile Angry Birds Friends app being updated to v1.4.0. By updating it today they’ve set the stage for the start of the tournament next week.
Here’s what we know:
- There will be three weeks of tournaments, beginning December 9th, 16th, and 23rd.
- Each tournament contains six holiday-themed levels.
- Jingle Sling slingshot added! Rovio’s description:
The Jingle Sling shoots ornaments at the pigs for extra damage and also makes it snow! Yours to earn or purchase!
No word yet on whether some of last year’s goodies will return, such as the Santa Bomb Bird, TNT Drops, or Advent-style level unlocking. Time will tell as we tick our way towards Christmas! They have not returned.
