Angry Birds Seasons Winter Wonderham Update Now Available!

Happy Holidays, to one and to all. Welcome the Winter and say goodbye to the Fall. Be merry and happy, whatever the reasons. But do not miss this update to Seasons!

That’s right, the Winter Wonderham update to Angry Birds Seasons (v3.1.0) is now available for iOS, PC, Mac, NOOK Color, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. More platforms will be getting the update very soon. We were the first to confirm this update, posting some GameCenter imagery about two weeks ago and exclusive Rovio-official details yesterday. This is Rovio’s third episode to celebrate the Christmas and holiday season, and as is Rovio’s tradition, this episode is rolled out like an Advent Calendar!

Participate in the ABN Winter Wonderham Challenge starting each night at 7 pm PST!

This update includes:

  • 25 new levels with one new level unlocked every day just like Seasons Greedings, Summer Pignic, and Wreck the Halls. See below for more details about this. Our walkthrough videos will come online shortly after the levels are released.
  • Snowy winter landscape under the aurora borealis. More info about the amazing aurora borealis can be found on Wikipedia.
  • New ice element! Have you played the Hoth update for Angry Birds Star Wars yet? This is very similar, allowing blocks to slide in a near-frictionless environment.
  • Golden Eggs include a “Big Ornament” bonus Golden Egg level that is unlocked after 3-starring all levels. Rovio stated there are “3 secret levels to find”, so we are guessing that there may be two Golden Eggs hidden in-game. Once we find some Eggs, we will update our Complete Angry Birds Seasons Golden Eggs guide.
    Update: Thanks to some clever sleuthing from @josm, it appears that there will be the Big Ornament, an in-game hidden Golden Egg, and another New Year’s Golden Egg. We don’t know precisely when this Egg will show, but last year’s was 8AM UTC on 31 December.
  • No power-ups! Which is a darn good thing if you ask me.
  • No new achievements for iOS. This is expected, since Seasons reached the GameCenter limit quite some time ago.
  • Spiffy new app icon! While the app icon for Seasons always changes to match the latest update, this change is far more extreme — and looks awesome!
  • Pro Tip! Flashback to Seasons Greedings! Presents are worth 3,000 points!
  • “Harbin” level, in honor of the Angry Birds Seasons theme park in the Ice and Snow World in Harbin, China. Keep an eye out for this level, which will land on December 4th and should be amazing. Read more in our post from yesterday, or in the full article with details about Rovio’s participation at ScandAsia.com.
  • Update! On 5 December, Android users were given a special treat: Four brand new levels! These are accessible by clicking on the blue “Intel” egg on the Golden Egg screen of Winter Wonderham. If you need help 3-starring these levels, our walkthroughs are live!

Notes:

  • Each level of Winter Wonderham unlocks at 12 AM PST (8 AM UTC, 3 AM EST, 10 PM Hawaiian; go here if you need more times).
  • Winter Wonderham 3-star walkthroughs are live. Daily walkthrough pages will go live at 12 AM PST, so be sure to check back every day. The actual video will be added to the page as soon as it’s ready, but the page is there for your comments and strategies.
  • Winter Wonderham Total Destruction walkthroughs are also live. These will also go live at 12 AM PST, with the actual video being added later in the day.
  • You must be connected to the internet the first time you play a level (only the first time for each level) so that it can download the level file and check the date (this prevents early access).
  • The leaderboards are also live. Again, please be patient with brand new levels; we will update the leaderboards during the day.

Bug Updates:

  • Bug Fix (Bug 47 iOS/Android/PC/Mac): All issues with the Mooncake Festival Golden Eggs have been resolved (beyond the on-going bug that appears below). We will be re-opening the relevant levels on the leaderboard. Note that we have placed strong restrictions on permissible scores on these levels, to prevent entry by those who exploited the bug.
  • Bug Fix (Bug 48 iOS/Android/PC/Mac): The “New Year Egg” from Wreck the Halls seems to be universally unlocked now. (Original bug said it could not be initially unlocked in v2.5.0 or higher.)
  • Bug Fix (PC only): The ropes have returned to the slingshot on PC. (Original bug said the ropes were sometimes not visible on PC, called the “ghost slingshot”.)
  • Ongoing Bug: Some users are still having issues with 3-star “Big Items” remaining locked, despite obtaining 3-stars on all levels. Any user experiencing these issues is encouraged to contact AMslimfordy by Private Message. Rovio is aware of the bug, but thusfar there seems to be barriers preventing a fix.

It’s kind of golden egg (but not gold in color) with 4 levels inside.

No, it has the same theme as a web game from a few months ago called “Angry Birds in Ultrabook Adventure”.

@amslimfordy Has anyone reported having the Mighty Eagle on ABS (Wonderham)with this release? I have it for sure, but I moved from Amazon to Google on ABS. If no one else has it the only other possibility would be Rovio giving it directly to me, which seems incredibly unlikely, but I did have a conversation with them about Return Of The Jedi, not being advertised as free for 3-starring Tattooine and Death Star. It just seems really strange that I have seen no other people mention it.

Rank: Sling God with 27495 points

I don’t understand your question. To my knowledge, the Mighty Eagle is not available for ABS on Android.

Avatar of Old Man BirdRank: Explosive with 2480 points
By Old Man Bird (@oldmanbird)

@amslimfordy I know no one has reported having the ME on ABS. However, somehow I have it and there is no way that Rovio would have done it just for complaining about ABSW RoJ just for me. The only way they could have would be my email for Twitter and Google Play are the same. The same day a few hours after I spoke with them they posted the RoJ information on Facebook, Tweeted it and put it on ABSW web page. Why give it to me and not make it available to purchase for others, it defies logic. I check daily and it is still there.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8705 points
By cosmo2503 (@cosmo2503)

Are you kidding? I remember you mentioned it but I hardly expect Rovio would make such exclsivity for one player. I don’t have ME in Seasons nor possibility to purchase it in Google Play Store.

Avatar of Old Man BirdRank: Explosive with 2480 points
By Old Man Bird (@oldmanbird)

@cosmo2503 That’s what is confusing me. Unless it has something to do with transfering form Amazon to Google. However, it wasn’t available on Amazon either as far as I know. No complaints, just don’t understand how it is possible.

When i updated Angry Birds Seasons to V.3.1.1, when i pressed the play button, there was a error that something is wrong with the Lua file, but i repaired it and it works fine. Did anyone got this problem?

Not that I’ve heard.

@amslimfordy – there is a Seasons update on IOS right now. I am downloading – I will let you know if there is anything noteworthy. I’m wondering if the Intel levels will be included.

Avatar of PdBRank: Pig Leader with 10490 points
By PdB (@playdbird)

No Intel levels. Maybe Apple is not comfortable giving Intel free advertising.
The only thing the update states was that some minor bugs were fixed to improve the user experience. Maybe some of those “Golden” issues were repaired. IDK.

Rank: Sling God with 27495 points

Thanks, I don’t see anything new either. From my conversation today with Rovio, it won’t fix the Big Items issue.

Rank: Explosive with 2260 points
By AngryBirdsFanGuy438 (@angrybirdsfanguy438)

I don’t think it’s an Apple thing, because they’re not on PC either and AB PC games are by Rovio alone.

There is also a new feature for PC : when you explode the black bird, the white bird, and the TNT, the screen will shake to make it more realistic.

And don’t forget that Bubbles’s puff (orange bird) would shake the screen, too.

don’t forget about the Orange Bird’s inflation! it makes the screen shake as well.

After updating any angry birds game, can we remove the setup file from AppData/Roaming/Rovio directory? I hope its not harmful….

I wouldn’t remove those files.

Great update, but it took me two hours to 3-star level 1. And it’s pretty much more of the same gameplay that we got earlier on in Seasons. Even the original game has something revolutionary about it (the King Pig feature, which I LOVE. I’d be happy to keep this game if there were more features added in updates.

How do I get this update on my iPad? I already have Seasons, but no Wonderham.

Still no golden egg?

By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

A little antsy, are we?

Well, the in-game Golden Egg for Season’s Greedings didn’t appear until level 13, and the one for Wreck the Halls wasn’t until level 15.

Even based on the “Seasons 2″ package, the Golden Eggs appeared in levels “17″ (2-2), 15, 15, 15, “19″ (2-4), and 13.

Sorry I don’t know where to post this, but I am sorry for not coming here regularly. I was busy with other things and didn’t have time for Angry Birds for a while. Plus, I lost ALL my progress from all my games so I have to start over (@kathy I remember hearing you experienced this too??) so I hope you will welcome me back although I haven’t been here for a while. Thanks so much ABN!!
