The next Angry Birds game
Angry Birds Epic makes its
debut in Australia and Canada later this week, for iOS devices, which the
time-tested way to see how you product works with a small, US-like
English-speaking audience ahead of a broader launch.
Unlike the physics-based Angry Birds franchise, which sees players flinging their birds at structures and evil pork, Epic features a story-driven campaign according to Kotaku, and it has the aforementioned turn-based combat system and RPG leveling, along with a crafting mechanic where you can build in-game items and armor by redeeming currency either earned through play or via (you guessed it) in-app purchase.
