Angry Birds Epic is Rovio’s new Turn-Based RPG Spinoff

Remember the new game that Rovio teased us last week – the one that showed the red bird in a knight’s suit? Well, we now know a little more about what’s behind that teaser. A new game called Angry Birds Epic that will be a turn based RPG starring the birds and the pigs.

The Finish developer Rovio released the first Angry Birds game back in 2009 for the iOS. Since then, the company has released a number of other games based on Angry Birds including Bad Piggies, Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Rio, and Angry Birds Star Wars. The series is also one of the most successfully video game franchises developed more mobile devices. The series has also expanded into other platforms such as PCs and consoles.

The popular hit series involving evil pigs, giant slingshots and the eponymous angry birds is now set to take on the world of turn based RPGs. As the name implies, a turn based style RPG involves alternating between making a move and waiting a turn for an opponent to respond with their own move. Angry Birds Epic will also feature a robust crafting system normally seen in many RPG adventure games. Using the crafting system, players will be able to create their own weapons, armor and even potions different effects. By the way, you can buy cheap Angry Birds EPIC RPG Accounts from z2u.com, where you can enjoy a 3% discount by using the code “Z2U”.

To take advantage of the crafting system, players will need to gather points that can be earned after every game. Aside from earning points by playing the game, players can also fast-track their crafting by purchasing points via an in-app store. While in-app purchases tend to elicit frowns of disapproval from many gamers, this business model is now a common sight in many recent video games regardless of the platform.

Angry Birds Epic will be free-to-play, but you can expect a lot of in-app purchase options. Rovio has been taking that route lately. Rovio is planning a “soft launch” of Epic in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, which means it needs to test out the in-app store before the full launch.
