Bad Piggies Rise and Swine Update Coming July 22nd

With all of the hubbub about Angry Birds Star Wars II and the plethora of other updates coming to Angry Birds titles, some people had forgotten about the porky green foes of the franchise. Feeling a bit overshadowed, the pigs wanted to make an announcement. Ahem…

Bad Piggies will be receiving an update on Monday, 22 July, which will bring a lot of new content. (This may not be the exact date for all platforms, but it will be the initial release.)

According to the description on the YouTube video, the update will add the final 30 levels of “Rise and Swine”, at least 1 new Road Hogs and Sandbox level, a grappling hook as a playable item, and Power Ups! (Our friends over at will make good use of these, I’m sure!)

The YouTube video also offers a hint about Power Ups, saying that you can earn them by feeding King Pig. This suggests that you can earn Power Ups through normal gameplay if you want to avoid In-App Purchases. While we aren’t 100% sure about how the Power Ups will work exactly, our walkthrough videos will avoid using them. Also, we assume that Power Ups will not be available for PC since there is still no IAP system there.

For those keeping count:

  1. Bad Piggies “Rise and Swine” on 22 July
  2. Original “Red’s Mighty Feathers – Ch 2” coming soon
  3. Rio “Unknown” coming soon
  4. Space “Episode 7” coming soon
  5. Star Wars “Return of the Jedi” coming soon
  6. Angry Birds Go! release soon
  7. Angry Birds Star Wars II on 19 Sept.

Finally, Rovio has officially announced that they intend to release the Rovio Accounts Cloud Sync system to all Angry Birds titles and non-AB titles, so perhaps we will see it in Bad Piggies on Monday? Or at least soon. Nothing has been said yet about additional platforms, but those are likely coming as well.

So it could be possible that this power-up can be earned only in the game, by feeding the king pig, in that case they can add this to the PC version, if there is no option to buy these. I’m Looking forward to it, 30 new levels, bonus levels and a new item. And an update on a monday? Hopefully it is because they have planned an AB update for thursday :)

I also think that power-ups can be earned in the game itself, it’s possible we’ll get Bird Coins, sorry I mean “Pig Coins” ,lol. After completing a level, with a 3-Star score.
I think, feeding King Pig means completing a level i.e. Get the cake in Rise & Swine chapter (?)
They can also include a IAP for these power-ups.

And Yes, I agreed that they updated Bad Piggies on Monday because there is an update planned for Thursday. May be , Angry Birds Star Wars will get “Return of the Jedi” update on Thursday :)

I don´t think the Power-ups will be available for PC because the Mighty Dragon is free but still not available for PC.

Hey @AMSlimFordy not to bother you, but for the list you should also put 8. Angry Birds Star Wars 1 coming soon to consoles(Xbox 360, PS3, WII, WII-U, 3Ds, and PS-Vita) on October 29!

@BBinMiami While interesting news, this is a list of forthcoming updates. I’m not particularly interested in the console version of Angry Birds. They are way overpriced.

It will also contain extra levels will you make wakthroughs for them

No, we won’t do any walkthroughs for console-exclusive levels. We didn’t do this for the “Trilogy” console game either.

Some people consider power-ups as “cheats”, while some other people consider it as a “help”, and some people act neutral. The most possible power-ups are “Krak-Snap Protection” because that’s the biggest problem of creating a contraption with speed and stability. (I’ll try to avoid using them as best as I can)

PUs in BP are likely to be IAP but have no idea how they’ll relate that with feeding King.

I guess its more like dairy rewards on AB games, but you need to get it in-gameplay

Wow. This makes AB Seasons the only game so far without a leaked or teased forthcoming update!

I wonder if there will be any kind of distinction between stars obtained with powerups and those obtained without? I’m less hesitant to use them if there are distinctions (so far, ABo and Rio are the only games I don’t use powerups on).

I haven’t forgotten Bad Piggies, how could I? I love them! It’s great they are finally coming. It seems like ages since last update.
As for Power-ups concern, I hope they will be part of Field of Dreams sandbox and wouldn’t apply to Road Hogs. Noone would be more disappointed then me if they become part of RH, But we will see and obviously have to accept whatever comes.

Yeah, it’s going to be awesome. It’s more awesome if the Power-Ups come for PC because of the fact that you have to “Feed the King Pig”.

Maybe rather than collecting star boxes, etc. you collect cakes to feed to King Pig at the end of the level.

I’m really hoping for Rovio Sync to come with this update. I’ll be more likely to play if I know that I can have all the same scores on every device. Also, glad to see this game wasn’t forgotten about.

To oink, or not to oink, that is the question:
Whether ’tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The Slingshots and Angers of outrageous Misfortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of power-ups…
