Rovio today launched Angry Birds Epic for iOS devices worldwide, featuring a fantasy-adventure story with RPG gameplay. The player controls Angry Birds characters Red, Chuck, and Bomb as they explore Piggy Island to battle the series' classic pig villains.
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]
