As reported by Kotaku, Rovio will be launching Angry Birds Epic, an adventure role-playing game with turn-based combat and an extensive crafting system.
It actually sounds pretty amazing for a mobile title. A story-driven campaign with a challenging endgame? Will there be raiding? Can birds raid things? Alfred Hitchcock certainly thought so. Sounds like crafting will be an important part of the game as well, with players making armor, potions, and weapons using resources either won in the game or purchased via real currency.
Angry Birds Epic is currently only available in Canada and Australia. The final version will be released to the world later this year.
