Game Name: Angry Birds Seasons | Developer: Rovio Entertainment | Publisher: Rovio Entertainment | Format: Android, iPhone, iPad | Genre: Casual, Puzzle
The latest update for Angry Birds Seasons will be available next week. With it, Rovio will be celebrating everyone's favourite season: Bad Pun Season.
Entitled Abra-Ca-Bacon, the latest update to the seasonal-flavoured bird-flinging saga will feature 30 brand-new levels straight off the bat, plus a further six unlockable stages.
Those new levels are built around a new gameplay mechanic. That mechanic being magic portals that suck your birds in at one end and spit them out at the other.
By the looks of things, you'll need to hone your firing skills and practise portal jumping if you want to destroy those meddlesome pigs in the most efficient way.
It's not just birds you're going to be pushing through the portals, either. Judging by the trailer above, you'll be able to smash scenery into the portals and watch as it cascades down onto the oblivious pigs.
Rovio teased the idea that portals were going to make an appearance in Angry Birds Seasons last week via Vine, using plushies to create a real-life animation of what we can expect in the update. There was no concrete release date for this update, mind.
There is now. The Abra-Ca-Bacon update will be available from May 16th on both Android and iOS.
