New Angry Birds Epic now a Final Fantasy-like RPG
Tired of playing the same old Bird games? Rovio has just announced that its next installment of the Angry Bird franchise will involve RPG gameplay with customizable armors and weapons — the Angry Bird Epic.
Angry Bird Epic, as reported by Kotaku, is an adventure game that veers away from the old physics-based gameplay and introduces a new turn-based battle between the same birds and pigs that fans have been familiar with. How? Just imagine the popular Final Fantasy games where you take turns, choose your move, and attack your opponents.
It features a story (most probably continuing where they left off) and a new crafting system so players can modify their weapons, armors, and potions from in-game purchases using accumulated points or real-life currency.
Angry Birds Epic will have a soft launch later this week in iTunes store for Canada and Australia, and will later on be available globally for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 8.
Will this be the new Bird game that will once again eat hours of our time?
