Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Update Now Available

The latest update to the Angry Birds Rio (v1.4.0) is now available for iOS, Nokia, PC, and Android via the Amazon AppStore and Android Market, with other platforms coming soon. As the leaked images showed, this update takes place inside of Marcel’s plane and is aptly named, “Smugglers’ Plane”. The leaderboard and walkthroughs are live.

This update includes:

  • 15 new levels in Chapter 11 with Chapter 12 labeled, “Coming Soon”.
  • New hidden fruits in the form of Mangoes (seven hidden throughout Chapter 11).
  • New achievements to be unlocked (iOS only). Many are “hidden” achievements, so be sure to check out our list.
  • Boomerang Bird is now unlocked and he is ready to take his revenge on the smugglers!
  • Pro tip! Try to hit the luggage. It’s worth 5,000 points!

Bug fixes:

  • The most notable bug fix is the Carnival Upheaval 8-5 threshold bug (iOS only). The minimum 3-star score has been re-confirmed at 65,000.
  • The current status of the Stellarvore issue has been verified by a Rovio developer. He said, “Stellarvore will be available when all the levels are released and available :)”.

Helpful links:

  • Video walkthroughs for Chapter 11 are live.
  • Video walkthroughs for Golden Mangoes are available.
  • The leaderboards are live, so come compete with some of the best! Also, let us know how you like the new leaderboard format!

We will keep this post updated the update lands on more platforms. But for now, please enjoy these complimentary screenshots:

Does anyone know when they will update Rio free?

They’d most likely update free when Rio is finished, an update away.

What device are you playing on?

There is no update button on PC. When an update is available, you should be alerted via a popup. If not, you can manually update by downloading the new executable file from the Angry Birds site.

Oh I see that’s why, tnx again! :D

Any idea when episode 12 will be released?

By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

No, Rovio does not release information about future updates and releases.

By Trevor

Then what are your preferences… I see that some posts say, (blank) COMING SOON?

Rank: Sling God with 27520 points

Not sure what you are asking.

Also, please use the “reply” buttons to keep threads intact.

For example, it said in one post, Wreck The Halls coming soon (leaked images). Where Do u getthe information?

Rank: Sling God with 27520 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Rarely Rovio will announce an update in advance (such as the Birdday update). Other than that, we stay vigilant and watch for leaks and things of that nature. Can’t be more specific than that though.

By Trevor

OH! OK thanks just wondering :-)

Update not released yet, but there’s an image (screenshot here that shows the orange bird. I would have thought the update would be out soon now!

Thanks for the heads-up Laurence!

I feel the update is really, really near though… now orange bird fans would have assurance that it would be ready to take vengeance on those smugglers! :)

Great job!

Likewise, Rovio has changed their Facebook picture to Rio, so that’s even more evidence to support a Rio update coming soon :)

Hey, when I’m looking images in angry birds folder, there an image spoiler for the ending story,
The three birds red, blue, and yellow were on the plane about to crash to their island
Then some pigs have found their eggs and they heard a plane crash and run behind a rock
The birds came out the plane and they back to their eggs

I don’t know where Blu and Jewel is..
