Halloween downloads to get free Christmas makeover

Angry Birds go festive for free

The Christmas themed rendition of the ever popular Angry Birds app is to be made available free of charge to users who splashed out 59p on the Halloween version of the game.

Confirmed via its Twitter feed publisher Rovio Mobile responded to a follower’s festive-themed question stating the Christmas version of Angry Birds would launch via a “free update” adding: “Christmas is coming to Halloween”.

Expected to launch on December 11th to coincide with the first annual Angry Birds day, the Christmas edition of the bird flinging mega app will see the irked feathered animals fired through a series of winter-themed Santa hat-wearing levels. Leaked screen shots last week revealed the festive app update would come complete with Christmas hat wearing pigs and Yule tide present bonuses.

The update to the Halloween version of Angry Birds could see the Rovio app follow the likes of fellow addictive mobile hit Doodle Jump with updated skins and levels produced in celebration of global events.
