The next Angry Birds update – Mighty Eagle!

After a long wait, the Mighty Eagle is almost here! This legendary and mysterious bird will be included in the next Angry Birds update, due to be released in the next few days. The update includes 15 levels in a hot new desert themed episode, Ham ‘Em High, with a brand new shiny golden egg, and all the usual goodies we love to see from Angry Birds.

The Mighty Eagle is downloadable content. If you get stuck in the game, you have the opportunity to purchase a can of sardines, which you use to lure out the elusive Mighty Eagle. This phenomenal creature will the soar from the skies to wreak havoc and smash the pesky pigs into oblivion!

Mighty Eagle will help you skip the toughest obstacles, but there’s a limit: you can only use the aid of Mighty Eagle to pass a level once per hour. In other words, when you pass a level with Mighty Eagle, you need to wait an hour to use him again to pass another level.

Is that all? Far from it! Mighty Eagle includes all new gameplay goals and achievements! In each level that you already cleared using the regular birds, you can smash away freely and try to fill up the destruction gauge! If you want to smash your way through every level leaving nothing behind, you have every incentive to do so!

Mighty Eagle is an in-app purchase in Angry Birds and costs $0.99/£0.59/€0.79NZ$1.29 to download.

Here’s a sneak peek

    Is the Angry Eagle a one time purchase or does it cost $0.99 every hour? I don’t want my kids to be able to drain my account playing becuase they think it’s hilarious to see the giant bird smash down (they’re little!). It doesn’t ask for the password to download this feature.

      I’ve only used the Might Eagle once, so I’m not sure if it’s a pay-per-use scenario. I would assume it probably is as a way of creating a revenue stream from on-going users/players. The once per hour is a restriction on being able to just go through and clear an entire episode immediately.
      If your kids like to watch the big bird smash things, they can still do that in Angry Birds without using Mighty Eagle; also, you can set your iPhone/iPad to not allow in-app purchasing from the store. The feature will require a password to purchase on iTunes, but this enables any other purchases from iTunes for the next 15 minutes without asking for password again.
      Hope that helps.
