Rovio’s Next Angry Birds Title is a Turn-Based RPG Spinoff, Angry Birds Epic
After a wide series of games in the Angry Birds franchise (and a brief foray into spinoffs with Bad Piggies), developer Rovio is switching things around a bit for the long-running mobile series by stretching their wings a bit with Angry Birds.
Rovio revealed that their next upcoming Angry Birds title will take quite a different path from their usual titles, and announced Angry Birds Epic, a turn-based role-playing game based with the characters and world of Angry Birds. Aside from the hilarity and humor of the previous Angry Birds titles, it also seems from reports that Angry Birds Epic will heavily provide features such as a crafting system for creating weapons and armor, along with an extensive turn-based combat approach, but with a unique Angry Birds twist.
Angry Birds Epic will be released in Australia and Canada this week in a “soft-launch,” followed by a full release later this year for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 8 worldwide – in the meantime, you can check out a screenshot from the game below:
