Angry Birds Seasons Now Available For PC!!!

The wait is over for PC users! Angry Birds Seasons (v2.0.0) — complete with Ham’o’ween — has launched for PC and is available for download at download.angrybirds.com! Special thanks to DStone for being the first to see it. We expect an update for Mac soon. Remember, PC has the distinct advantage that Rovio can push the update to live without approval from Apple.

Update: Seasons has landed in the Mac App Store as well.

Below is some Q&A, which is basically the same as for the other versions of the app from the standalone site.

  • Where do I download it and how much does it cost?
  • To download Angry Birds, Rio, or Seasons on your PC head over to download.angrybirds.com. Each version is $4.95 to purchase, but there are free demos available that you can upgrade from without losing your progress.
  • How to I download and install Angry Birds, Rio, or Seasons on my PC?
  • To download the demo or to purchase the full game head over to, download.angrybirds.com. Once downloaded you can install Angry Birds or Angry Birds Rio just like any other application. If you have trouble follow the simple setup guide that Rovio created.
  • I bought an activation key, now how do I activate it?
  • To activate the game, you must enter a serial number that can be purchased online. Once you receive the activation key via email launch the game and click the “Activate Full Version” button. Now, copy and paste the key into the “Enter the key” field and click “Register the key”. This will unlock all of the levels, Golden Eggs and give you access to future updates. An internet connection is required to activate the game.
  • Are the free demos unlimited?
  • No. It seems you can usually play the first page in the demo. (Poached Eggs Chapter 1 and Smugglers Den Chapter 1.) In Seasons, it seems you can play 3 levels from each episode.
  • Does the activated version have every level?
  • Just about. The Mac/PC versions of apps have all levels except for the 3 Facebook/Twitter levels that some episodes have.

    Update: It is possible that the Facebook/Twitter levels may be added in the future. See the correspondence in the forum.

  • How do the controls work?
  • Check out our Angry Birds control guide for the complete control schema.
  • How are future updates delivered?
  • The update checker in-game runs once per day. If an update is available, it will prompt you when you launch the app. Some users have had issues with this, so you can manually download new updates by grabbing new .exe files from the Angry Birds Shop.
  • Are they available for purchase outside the USA?
  • Yes, you can purchase and activate the games from anywhere in the world!
  • If I download and play the demo version will I lose my progress if I decide to upgrade to the full version?
  • From what we can tell you will NOT lose your progress when you upgrade.
  • Does it work on Windows Vista?
  • Yes. The system requirements are: OS Windows XP SP2, RAM 512MB, CPU 1 GHz, Graphic OpenGL 1.3 compatible, Internet Connection required for activation
  • Does it work on 64-bit version of Windows 7?
  • Yes, though it installs as a 32-bit application.
  • When will it be available through Intel AppUp
  • This we don’t know. Maybe never, maybe tomorrow.
  • Can I share my activation key with my friends?
  • No. Per the Rovio FAQ, “A single purchase only allows for single-user use. The activation key is valid for three installs so you can install the game on your desktop or laptop with a single key”. Note, this makes it sound like you can up install it on your laptop AND PC with a single key, but from what I’ve heard this is not the case. It’s 3 installs on a single device (i.e. You can install and uninstall 3 times with the same key).

Guys, I’m a new Angry Bird player and I love your site! I have two AB’s on my Mac, AB rio and original. When is the exact date that seasons is coming out because pc already has it. Thanks!

There is no exact date. Just takes a little time to change the dev from PC to Mac. But shouldn’t be too long.

@AMslimfordy: Will Rovio ever release the 3 Facebook/Twitter levels on some episodes for PC?

I know you directed this to slim, but I’ll chime in. It’s doubtful, as they would have likely already done so.

I agree. I have asked them about this, but they said they couldn’t comment about releases and updates.

Well this sucks, but i mean i think the PC/Mac users should have everything that the Angry Birds apps have for iPhone because you paid $4.95 for just one game and you only pay 99 cents for the iPhone games with the 3 facebook/twitter levels, i mean how hard can it be to add 20 more levels that already exist on the iPhone apps. i don’t get it.

also, why did it take so long for Angry Birds Seasons to be released on PC?

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17965 points

Those levels integrate with various APIs, which can be tricky to maintain across platforms and have proven problematic/buggy. The likely reason is to create a better user experience. Hard to say exactly, but that’s my 2 cents.

sorry, i ask alot of questions lol, but has angry birds been released on PC before and then rereleased again?

Seasons you mean? There was an accidental release, but this was the official one.

also have you noticed that the sound in Angry Birds Seasons for PC has a more muffled sound quality compared to Original Angry Birds and Angry Birds Rio? To me, everything in Angry Birds Rio and Original sound much clearer than Seasons.

By CamoCouch

That would be awesome if there was Angry Birds World Traveler! EPIC!!!!

I found out why Angry Birds Seasons for PC has muffled sound. It’s because the the size of the angry birds seasons installer package is only 28.2MB, when it should be somewhere around 43-45MB. When i looked through the sound files after i installed it, i compared the size of one sound from angry birds seasons and one from original angry birds and found out that the Angry Birds Seasons sound file is half the size of what the one in the original angry birds is resulting in lesser sound quality. I wonder if Rovio did this on purpose because they think we wouldn’t notice it but i sure did. Please comment if you found out too.

Newbie here :).

I notice the muffled sound as well when I played the PC version. So far I’ve only played the trick or treat chapter, so I dunno if the later chapters will have better sound. ABo’s is much clearer and I hope they’ll improve Seasons’ sound file later on.

@bluegie: actually, it’s muffled in all episodes.

I could suggest getting better speakers for your PC (mine are from Bose), but where’s the fun in that? ,

Rank: DaBomb with 260 points
By bluegie (@bluegie)

Oh it’s not about speakers. When I play ABo on pc, the sounds are so clear, but AB Seasons just sounds quite bad.

Of course, I would love to play AB with really good speakers. I’m sure the crashing sound will be magnificent :D.

Rank: Hardened with 565 points

actually it’s a software-related issue. Rovio even admitted that the sound quality in Seasons for PC was lower than the Original and Rio for PC and that it would be fixed in a later update.

Thanks so much for letting me know. i feel relieved. I sent them an email about it too. hey is the fastest way to reach rovio is by twitter?

Rank: Sling God with 25790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Depends on what you want to ask. If it’s something minor, then probably — though they receive thousands of tweets daily. BirdLeader and I just have a particular contact who is bloody awesome and usually responds to us rather quickly. We owe him big time.

OTOH, if your question is very specific, or requires a major fix, then email will get to the tech team, instead of general customer service.

I completed hamoween episode of PC without referring to single walkthrough from this site.. it is one of the best episode of ABS. The Golden egg #26 level, where a Pig drives a stone car or tractor is extremely hilarious….Too funny.. God bless angry birds team. And a big thanks to AngryBirdsnest people for telling us the updates regularly….

Does anyone know how long it will take for rovio to respond to an email i sent them?

Can take a while, especially in the wake of a major release — such as PC Seasons.

@AMslimfordy: I know i’m bugging you alot but did you notice that Angry Birds Seasons for PC has lower sound quality? it sounds muffled compared to Angry Birds Rio and Original.

I haven’t played any Angry Birds app on any device wi sound on in months, so I wouldn’t know.

It would be a good idea to list all of the items that gives us extra points, such as skeltons in Ham’o’ween, the Rabbit in Mooncake, in a seperate column.

Rank: Sling God with 25790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

All that is included in the individual Seasons releases. We weren’t gonna copy it all here. That’d be tiring.

Is there mighty eagle in this game?

Mighty Eagle is not yet available for PC.

I know this is in the wrong place, but doe’s anybody have a idea when the next chapter in ABO is coming out, cause right know, ABS and ABR is getting all the limelight.

Rank: Sling God with 25790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

No but I think it will be a little while longer. There’s a GameCenter snag that applies solely to ABo that Rovio is trying to work around.

By James

In the pc release we only got 1-15 in the valentines st. patricks and easter levels but there are walkthroughs for 18 levels. Will this be fixed?

Rank: Sling God with 25790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

There is nothing to fix. It is simply the way, as noted in this post.

Does the activated version have every level?
Just about. The Mac/PC versions of apps have all levels except for the 3 Facebook/Twitter levels that some episodes have.

I know this is off topic but, I got the full version of angry birds original, seasons, and rio on my iPod; but now I want to download it on my pc. Can you please have the code on the apps so you can just insert the code and there you got it. Also, I lost my golden beach all code thinking I wouldn’t need it but remember how to get it on the app, any help?

-Thanks
Bye,
Bob!

Not sure exactly what you are asking, but here’s how I read it.

– If you are asking for activation codes for PC apps, we will not provide them. You will have to purchase from download.angrybirds.com for $4.95 US/each.
– To get a code for PC’s Golden Beachball levels, you will have to purchases a copy of Rio on DVD. We do not provide them here.

Rank: DaBomb with 305 points
By banzaigtv (@banzaigtv)

You get a Golden Beachball activation code when you purchase the movie Rio on DVD or Blu-ray, but I think it’s a one-time activation code. If you used it already, I doubt you’ll ever get the episode back. :|

Rank: Sling God with 25790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I don’t think he used the code. I think he bought the DVD and threw the code away (or lost it). That said, buying a new DVD will replace the other code.

So I have to buy it again? The Beachball code?

Yes, that code was single-use.

What do you mean? Did you purchase an activation key from shop.angrybirds.com for Seasons?

Rank: DaBomb with 305 points
By banzaigtv (@banzaigtv)

Make sure that the activation key is not for a pirated version of the game downloaded from a torrent. It’s illegal and you will get viruses.

i herd that mac had extra golden egg in trick or treat lvl 3-15. is this true? p.s. how do you get the ranks on your profile on this site?

Rank: Sling God with 25790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

The rumor was 2-15, but I believe this was a red herring of sorts. The only (3) users to report this all came from the same IP address, so I think it’s wrong.
