Angry Birds Rio Airfield Chase Update Now Available for PC

PC users woke up to a nice surprise, as the latest Angry Birds Rio update (v1.3.2) is now available and includes all 30 levels of Airfield Chase. This also means a new flock of users will be hunting for those hidden apples, so if you need help be sure to check out our walkthroughs. This update comes about a month after the last Rio iOS and Android update, so check out that post if you want to know the nitty-gritty about v1.3.2. Lastly, don’t forget to compete with the rest of us on the Angry Birds Rio leaderboard.

This update includes:

  • 30 new levels in Airfield Chase
  • 15 new hidden apples
  • A new boss fight (shown in screenshot below)
  • Pro tip! Try to hit the luggage. It’s worth 5,000 points!

A few tips regarding upgrading the standalone version:

  1. The in-game updated only checks for updates periodically (though some users have reported problems), so if you’re not getting prompted for an update and are in a hurry you can download a new installer from download.angrybirds.com. Updating this way should maintain your progress just fine, but if you want to be safe backup you LUA files first. Those files are typically found in your /user/AppData/Rovio/ folder, but that path can vary slightly depending on your version of Windows.
  2. If you update in-game it will download a new installer and overwrite the old one, so if your keen on keeping the older version (just in case you want to revert) backup the installer. This is probably something most people don’t care too much about.

A big thanks to angrygreg for being the first to tip us off about this update!

    The Next Fruit WILL NOT BE GRAPES. It Will Be Mangoes,
    & The Pigs will Make An APPEARANCE In the Ending Cutscene
    Because of Pc Version

    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Rovio always said they wanted the pigs to make a cameo. I hope they do.

    I’m still putting my money on grapes. I’ve seen it in enough images to think it is true. I’m by no means guaranteeing it, but it’s my opinion.

    Plus mangoes have already been done.

    And on the lines of pigs. I bet that the pigs will team up with Nigel to beat the angry birds for revenge. And Blue and Jewel will come back and we will finally see what Jewel does! Seems like a good idea.

    Those are not the real pigs. I think they want a cameo by the real pigs. And I was wrong. Mangoes have not been done just yet.

    Yeah… those would be papayas that you’re talking about.

    By Morph416

    I went back thru the images in the Rio data folder, and seen grapes and mangos… but the mangos were also in gold, so it looks like those will be the final fruit. Plus, I did see images of the Mighty Eagle, not only in Rio, but in Seasons and the Original. So, hopefully.. PC / Mac will get the ME update here soon!

    Although the game has been updated, it is really sad to see that the glitch of 14 bananas in Jungle Escape episodes haven’t been fixed yet :(

    Rank: Sling God with 32100 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    This is neither unique to PC nor unique to Jungle Escape. Have you tried going through and “re-obtaining” all the bananas — even if crates and such are no longer labeled?

    Rank: Explosive with 2210 points

    Yeah, I’ve done what you suggested; however, it was no use – I still have 14 bananas :(

    Should be out in a few days. PC has the distinct advantage that Rovio can push updates at-will and don’t need Apple’s QA and approval.

    OK any idea f mighty eagle for pc

    By triggersoft

    ME probably won’t be available for PC. Mac and Android sound promising, because of the “Bad Piggy Bank” and the IAP feature. True, Rovio could put an add-on to the PC versions that will allow purchase of the ME for $0.99.

    Rank: Sling God with 32100 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    I’m pretty sure it will be available for PC eventually. Likely as a $.99 key purchase.

    By hello222

    I turn up my volume all the way on my computer and ABR is very quiet. This was happening before the update and I hoped they would fix it but they didn’t. Is there anything I can do. Also, I have tried restarting it but it didn’t work.

    If you don’t like waiting for the new updates, don’t play the game. Rovio can not come with updates every week. They must take their time to do it right the first time. Plus, they will time to come up with unique levels. Or else we will be playing the same kind of levels in every update.

    Oh yeah, this is my second time here, and I’m not sure how you get the badges and all of that stuff. When I put my mouse over some people’s icons, I can see something like “Flinger with 70 points” but some people don’t have that. Do I have to sign up to get that?

    By the way, I’m buying AB Seasons on my Mac now and I’ll keep you updated about the golden egg. :) But I have to get to the end first, the GE is at the very end, according to Sam.

    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Yes, you would need to register for this site.

    The Golden Eggs I know of are 3-2 and 3-starring all of Trick or Treat. That’s all I know of.

    By IklBob

    Amslimfordy, can you confirm for us? According to Sam over the phone, it SHOULD be in 2-15. You have to aim right down and then up into the spot. It’s tricky good luck! It may take me a while to get there, I’m stuck on 1-2, lol! Looking at the walkthroughs on this site right now…

    I’ll post again tomorrow or later today, too addicted right now! I can’t stop until I’m done with all the levels, or at least until I get the egg!

    I checked on PC and I find no egg in 2-15 of Trick or Treat. Will need far more details if you claim it to be true.

    By Morph416

    Are we talking level 2-15 of Trick or Treat? Since this is the Rio Airfield Chase comments section, I am getting confused here… as there are no eggs in Rio, only fruit.

    Rank: Sling God with 32100 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Yeah, the thread is misdirected, but not much we can do about that now.

    By Morph416

    Ok, cuz I went back myself and did all that I could think of in 2-15, and I found no third egg. Actually, for my version in PC.. there are only two eggs for Trick or Treat. Only egg I am missing by counting them here at this site, is the Rio egg which we know some of us cannot get.

    By PopOutAngryBirds

    isn’t there a extra angry birds egg for 4g devices (original angry bits) guess theres a etra egg for pc too whats a mac by the way?

    by the way, i’m on daylight savings time and shouldn’t the day counters reflect that. its 5:36 but it says 6:36.

    Rank: Sling God with 32100 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    This is not the place for this conversation, but yes there is a 4G / Pomplamoose egg out there. However, it is only available on the Samsung 4G with the pre-installed copy of Angry Birds — which cannot be updated. So while it does exist, it is not a normal AB app.

    If this other egg exists on Mac and/or PC, I would love to see some more details. I can’t find it.

    The time on this site registers as California time, not local time.

    By jack

    Guys, I have an update. I have a PC and I could not find an egg, but my Mac friends at school said they found an egg on 2-15 after reading this site yesterday, but I’m not sure where it is yet. Anyways, I heard that it’s hard to get. (Scratch that, impossible) Someone said it was in a really weird place, just like 13-12. (Super bowl egg) They said something about shooting up, then waiting for the bird to go down. I would have listened it, but I had to catch a bus that leaves in half a minute so i didn’t have time to ask. I need to get myself a mac… Seriously, I’ll buy a mac just for that golden egg. Same thing that popout stated, I got the Infuse just for that egg. I’ll ask tomorrow if you guys can wait that long. :)

    Seriously, finally someone posted! I left this blog on and set my PC to automatically refresh every minute so I could see updates on this egg! To everyone else who found this egg: Is it a good one?

    This is my first time on this blog and its a good one!

It’s also suspicious to respond to yourself using a different user name in order to lend credence to your argument.

    the last episode for Rio won’t be a space theme but rather a Airplane theme, which follows the movie rio. Also there most likely will be a Space Theme or an Underwater Theme for the next Episode in Original Angry Birds.
