Angry Birds Epic Is a Turn-Based RPG

Rovio released a game back in 2009 called Angry Birds at Apple’s Appstore which was then downloaded over 12 million times. Sensing that the game was a hit the company then ported it over to other platforms such as Android, Windows Phone, and even Symbian. The game is physics based and quite addictive since players will have to use a slingshot to launch a bird with the purpose of hitting the pigs. The company then created several spin-offs and sequels of the title all with the same gameplay.

Last December Rovio released a teaser ad showing what its plans are for 2014. In this ad there appears to be character from Angry Birds dressed as a wizard, a knight, and an archer. It didn’t make sense back then but today we have learned that the company will soon be launching a new Angry Birds game called Angry Birds Epic. This won’t be like the usual games in the series where you get to use a slingshot to launch the birds as this is going to be a turn-based RPG.

Angry Birds Epic is reportedly going to be an adventure role-playing game with a turn-based combat system. It will first become available later this week for iOS users in Australia and Canada. A global launch will soon follow for Android, iOS and Windows Phone users.

Details are still sketchy as of this moment however it appears that there is going to be an extensive crafting system and the game will follow some form of storyline. Your characters are going to need armor and weapons which you will be able to get from the game. As expected there will also be an in-app purchase system for those who want to spend real world money to upgrade armor and weapons.

If you are a fan of this franchise then this game is worth checking out.

  1. It’s on iPhone too. And did you get a chance to try? I really liked it. Probably because I haven’t see anything better. 🙂

  2. Table Zombies, huh? I haven’t really seen impressive AR yet, so you’ve definitely piqued my interest. I’m going to have to check it out now, if it’s on the iPhone. If not, well, I’m going to be borrowing a friends device for this! 🙂

  3. Yeah. Only time will tell. But till then, I’ve found myself a new game, well, almost a game. Table Zombies. I’m sure you would have heard about it. It’s AR stuff is really impressive, and incredible.

  4. We’ll just have to wait and see. I’m sure it’ll be free, which seems to be the norm for Rovio’s games, so it shouldn’t cost much more than a little time to find out. I wonder when they’ll release it.

  5. It better be. I’ve really got bored of all the Angry Bird versions revolving around almost the same story and game play.

  6. Wow, this is a big change from the traditional Angry Birds. I think that’s a good thing, though. There have been several versions launched since the original but to date they have all been the same basic premise. I’m looking forward to something a little different.

  7. Considering it’s going to be a turn based RPG, a lot of things have to change, so I think it’s safe to say that it’s going to be very different.

  8. Normally, I’d be frustrated with this because I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we want something new and refreshing from Rovio. However, this looks quite different in that you actually have to spend some time on it and that it might actually be difficult!

  9. Turn-based RPG’s can definitely be fun. Suffice to say, I can’t wait to see what this going to be all about. Angry Birds in a turn based RPG…much comedy will ensue for sure.

  10. I love Angry Birds! I play it on my Kindle all the time; it’s so much more fun that way than on my tiny smartphone screen. I’m definitely interested in playing a turn-based RPG Angry Birds. I love turn-based RPG’s and wish more were being made.

  11. Really? I can understand Flappy Bird (That is a monster) but Angry birds was equally addictive. Perhaps personal interest varies. 🙂

  12. Cannot wait for this. The first one was awesome. As a fan of RPG games, this will be very interesting. Fingers Crossed.

  13. Another Angry Birds? Well, this better be engaging and interesting than the rest of the lot.

  14. I have played this game before. Somehow I never got addicted to this. I found Temple Run and Subway Surfers to be more addictive. And don’t even talk about Satan’s own product Flappy Bird!

  15. This was one of the most addictive games when it was new. Most people don’t even install this on their new devices anymore. The addiction is gone after the company released so many builds with almost the same game play. I hope this new one is going to be different enough to bring back the addiction.

  16. A physics based game and it is Angry Birds? Yes please! This is one game over every phone I have used or other mobile device, I have had to install at all times. It is just that one game that is a must. It reminds me of the old school addiction to Minesweeper.
