Rovio Entertainment has announced the release of the largest update Angry Birds Journey has received to date. It aims to rebuild the existing game by switching out the usual level-to-level progression with a season-based approach.
That means instead of seeing the usual starting screen, you will find a brand-new lobby image each month. However, the picture won't be complete until you unlock snippets by collecting seasonal tokens, playing levels, and participating in events.
As you might expect from this type of setup, these snippets are collected by working through the free seasonal track. You can earn different rewards from here too. If you buy the Journey Pass, you can earn even more goodies from the premium track. The standard season-based approach, essentially.
Alongside numerous rewards, purchasing the Journey Pass also unlocks the following:
- A golden avatar frame
- An exclusive cart, which will be in use for the duration of the season
- Additional lives
- Gaia’s Vault
After working through all the season pass, you will start collecting coins in Gaia's Vault. For every 100 seasonal tokens, that many coins get added to the vault. Once the season is complete, it will open for Journey Pass holders.
In addition to the introduction of seasons, Rovio has made a few tweaks elsewhere in Angry Birds Journey. The team has rebuilt the first 300 levels, and every stage now has three checkpoints. The first two are intended to be a little easier, while the third offers a tricker challenge by having the camera zoom out. That means there's more screen space for larger structures that will take some thinking and good aiming to topple.
Angry Birds Journey is available now on the App Store and Google Play as a free-to-play game with in-app purchases. You can download it for your preferred platform using the links below.
