Battles in game feature turned-based elements, as players can upgrade their characters' abilities, armor, and weapons throughout the story. The game also features an extensive crafting system, which allows players to obtain and combine multiple parts to create a variety of weapons for use in battle.

The new title is Rovio's first Angry Birds release of 2014, with the company also gearing up to launch Angry Birds Stella in September after teasing it earlier this year. The latter is expected to encompass multiple elements, as Rovio will tie-in animations, books, toys, and more alongside the game.


Angry Birds Epic is a free app for iOS devices and can be downloaded through the App Store. [Direct Link]

What annoys me the most is that we're forced to install and play the game!

The same goes with news/rumors we have no interest in, like patents war, stock prices and games we don't play!

I would absolutely love to have a choice in the matter!
