Angry Birds Seasons Arctic Eggspedition Update Now Available for iOS, Android, Mac & PC! Solution for iOS Crashing

Angry Birds Seasons Arctic Eggspedition Episode Teaser Image
Grab your snow boots and a thick down coat, as we’re heading to the North Pole! Rolling out a few days before we expected, Angry Birds Seasons Arctic Eggspedition (v4.0.0) is now available for iOS, PC, Mac, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with other platforms coming soon.

Crashing during startup? Rovio is aware of the issue on both Android and iOS. Uninstall/Reinstall seems to work most of the time, but please backup your data first! If you still experience issues when restoring progress, try restoring only the highscores.lua file.

v4.0.1 is being rolled out for relevant platforms and may fix the crashing issue. We encourage all users to update.

If you haven’t recovered from Turkey Day here in the US, start burning off those calories in Arctic Eggspedition. If you’re from outside of the States, join us in an epic countdown to Christmas — even if it’s summer in the southern hemisphere. This will be our fourth celebration of the holiday season, and in true tradition levels are unlocked in an Advent Calendar format!

Participate in the ABN Arctic Eggspedition Challenge starting each night at 7pm PST! A new Eggspedition level each day! Do you have what it takes to top the leaderboard?

This update includes:

  • 25 new levels, which are unlocked one level every day. Veterans are used to this format, as it’s the fifth time we’ve done this in Seasons! Our walkthroughs will be live shortly after each level is release.
  • New Golden Eggs! There appears to be 4 of them, based on the description:
    • 3 Golden Eggs hidden in-game;
    • The “Big Stove”, which will unlock after 3-starring all levels;
    • Another “New Year’s Golden Egg”? It doesn’t appear when purchasing all levels, but you never know! We’ve had one each of the last 2 years, unlocking automatically at 12AM PST on 31 December.
  • No new achievements for iOS. This is expected, since Seasons reached the GameCenter limit quite some time ago.

Notes:

  • Each level of Arctic Eggspedition unlocks at 12AM (midnight) PST (8AM UTC, 3 AM EST, 10 PM Hawaiian; go here if you need more times). On some platforms you an also purchase and unlock all levels for $0.99 (this unlocks all 25 levels and all 4 Golden Eggs).
  • Note: Since the Advent Calendar is starting a few days early, we have a mini gap before Level 2 unlocks. Level 2 will unlock at 12AM PST on 2 December, Level 3 on 3 December, etc.
  • Arctic Eggspedition 3-star walkthroughs are live for ALL levels.
  • 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.
  • Participate in the ABN Arctic Eggspedition Challenge starting each night at 7pm PST! A new Eggspedition level each day! Do you have what it takes to top the leaderboard?

    Agreed… seasons is usually the hardest game with this type of gameplay imo, and this episode shocked me at how easy it was…. finally got the hd version for kindle (free and ad free aren’t compatible with kindle as of this update, same with short fuse and rocket rumble) and was able to 3 star all levels available (1 through 21) in one night without walkthroughs, usually on the first completion on th elevel.

    @AMslimfordy. Hi. As far as I know, both Short Fuse and Arctic Eggspedition are available for PC, BUT: when I open ABO and ABS, it doesn’t pick up that an update is available. Is there a way that I can prompt it to look for updates? Normally it does it automatically provided you are linked to internet… Am I missing something? Thanks a lot. ABN is awesome!

    Thanks for that, @arushss. That explains ABO silence. ;-)

    Do all the levels already downloaded with the app? My device has only WiFi connection, while there’s lack of WiFi hotspot on my town :(
