Angry Birds Rio Now Available on the PC, Seasons Coming Soon!


As the title suggests, Angry Birds Rio is now available for the PC, but not through Intel AppUp — at least not yet. Rovio hinted a day or two ago that the the launch of Angry Birds Rio would be a “silent” one (meaning, they wouldn’t announce it). Thankfully, the amazing Angry Birds fans here on ABN — most notably RZLIII and ecarland — who sniffed it out early this morning right after it dropped.

Since this is a new format that is being offered as a standalone download and installable application, we decided to throw a quick FAQ together to help you get started (again, a big — no huge — thanks to RZLIII and ecarland in the forum for being the first to provide us with some insight):

  • Where do I download it and how much does it cost?
  • To download Angry Birds or Angry Birds Rio 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 or Angry Birds Rio 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. Our initial tests indicate that you can play them for only about 30-minutes at which time you are asked to upgrade. We’ll do more testing. If you have a different experience please let us know.
  • How do the controls work?
  • Check out our Angry Birds control guide for the complete control schema.
  • How are future updates delivered?
  • Not 100% sure on this one. We will try and get some clarity.
  • I have the previous — Intel AppUp — version of Angry Birds PC, will I have to start from scratch?
  • No, you will not. Based on our testing it looks like the new standalone version recognizes and loads your progress.
  • I purchased Angry Birds through Intel AppUp, will have I have to buy it again?
  • We believe so.
  • 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).
  • Is Angry Birds Seasons available for the PC?
  • Not just yet, but Rovio says it’s coming soon!
  • Does Angry Birds Rio PC include Beach Volley?
  • Yes, the latest levels are included.

These are the new “default” avatars, so it can’t be removed as they are auto-generated. You can update it by creating an Gravatar. Click the link for instructions. It’s easy and free.

From what I understand, you will be notified of updates. And updates are free

By sonicking917

I’m sure that’s only if you actually BUY it, though. I’m not sure what will happen with cracked versions, as I bought mine legit.

How can i update angry birds rio on pc i purchased full version and also got the registeration key

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

No updates are available yet. PC is complete at Beach Volley. I believe you will be prompted in-game when updates are available.

By sonicking917

Yes, you will be prompted in-game, shortly after you start it, assuming your connected to the net at the time, of course.

If you are playing on Android, your best bet is to move the app to phone instead of SD. The update should run on Phone, then transfer back to SD afterward.

Just bought Angry Birds Rio from this website & installed it but only half the screen is visible. Can’t play it. Waste of money. Is there any fix ?

Rank: Sling God with 34715 points
By Bird Leader (@birdleader)

Not sure. I reboot and try again. If that doesn’t work I would update your video card drivers then reboot again. You an also try hitting “alt + enter” after launching the game to switch to windowed mode. If none of this helps you can try contacting [email protected].

By AngryBirdsFan21

The Angry Birds updater checks this link now and then to find out if there is a new version of AB available and informs you.

I got 1.6.3.1 version recently, and cleared episode 6 with all 3 stars. However, there are no shovels on title screen. What’s the matter?

Small bug. True for all PC users.

Your dates are all off. The 4th episode (Carnival Upheaval) came out for PC a while ago. The 5th episode should be out soon. And the 6th episode was originally slated for November, though Rovio has no obligation to maintain these dates as they were removed 6 months ago.

By wiswanata

i cant use the code {code removed},what should i do?

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

You should buy a legitimate code. That one is cracked and Rovio has patched it.

By Sandi Tipps

Hi! If we purchased the CD from Rovio for Angry Birds Rio with all 4 episodes, when the game is upgraded, will we receive the upgrade free of charge or will we have to purchase that upgrade? Thanks for your help!! :)

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Updates are free over an Internet connection, though I have not heard much about buying the actual CD. I would contact Rovio about the specifics.

By Sandi Tipps

I should specify, it wasn’t an actual CD, it was the game, we downloaded from the site, sorry! :) but it was the entire first 4 episodes, including Carnival Upheaval. We’ll just keep watching for the upgrade :) thanks for all your help!!

I am in fact delighted to read this webpage posts which consists of lots of helpful facts, thanks for providing such statistics.

I downloarded the demo for Angry Birds Rio and keep trying to activate but the Rovio website has the statement “PC Games Temporarily unavailable”. This has been going on for over a week. How do we pay and get our activatin codes? Thanks. JAY

You will have to wait. Rovio is making improvements to the activation system.

By Grace

I bought the angry bird seasons paid $4.95 just to find out I’m still getting the Free DEMO even I bought the game. So I think the $4.95 is a waste because doesn’t even give you the tools or anything with the money you spend in buying the game.

When you buy the app, you should receive an email with an activation code (four quartets of letters). Copy that code, open Angry Birds Seasons, then click on “Activate Full Version”. Enter that code and you should be all set.
