At long last, updates for PC seem to be rolling out. According to Rovio, they experienced some serious technical difficulties with their PC apps and have worked tirelessly to repair them. Today, we saw the first few updates roll out. (And no, we do not know when other updates will land for PC.)
First thing this morning, Bad Piggies was updated to include the first 15 levels of Rise and Swine. For more information about what’s included in this release, see our original post.
To grab this update, simply open your Bad Piggies app on your PC. You should be prompted that a new version is available. If not, try cloud.rovio.com/install/pc/download/BadPiggies/.
Angry Birds Seasons
A short while later, Angry Birds Seasons was updated to v3.3.0, featuring the portal-filled episode Abra-Ca-Bacon. The episode has 30 normal levels, 3 bonus levels for PC, a hidden Golden Egg, and a Big Juggling Pins level for 3-starring all levels. For a much more detailed look, see the release post.
Unfortunately, Rovio revamped its shop and, in doing so, you will not likely be prompted to download the new version in-game. Instead, head to download.angrybirds.com and click on “Download Free Demo” under Seasons. Run the executable to install the new version. All of your previous progress should be there, but be sure to backup your data just to be safe.
If you are getting errors when trying to install or run the app, go to download.angrybirds.com and download the demo, as we say above. When you run the the app, you will be prompted that an update is available.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE IN-GAME UPDATE!!
It is actually a downgrade, and potentially to a buggy version. Your best bet is to ignore the prompt (sure, it’s annoying, but it’s better than having a broken game). For more information, we have a forum thread about this issue.
