Last week we brought you into the fold on Rovio’s latest game venture coming up, which is a rather awesome looking little game called Angry Birds Epic that is to be an upcoming RPG based game for the company. This would mark the second title for Rovio that is part of the Angry Birds franchise that falls outside the norm for what we have come to expect with Angry Birds. The First was Angry Birds Go!, and Angry Birds Epic certainly look like it will live up to its name. We don’t know a whole lot about the games details just yet, but we do know what it should have some epic gameplay. I’m personally hoping for some extremely epic boss fights and maybe even some dungeon runs, but one thing is for sure, it will have all the crazy fun that Angry Birds is normally known for.
Today Rovio has released the first actual trailer for the upcoming Angry Birds Epic, and it gives us a nice little insight as to what we can expect from the game once it drops. It has been referred to as having a sort of similar make up to South Park: Stick of Truth, but we’re not sure whether this refers more to the visual style or the actual gameplay. When we wrote about Angry Birds Epic last week, we told you we weren’t sure whether this title would follow the same Free-To-Play model as the previous games. Well, it would appear that it definitely will, which actually makes sense when you think about it considering that Rovio stands firmly behind the F2P pay model and would seek to make future games the same. What we don’t know quite yet is if there will be any sort of in-app purchases within the game, but it’s a pretty good bet that they’ll make their way into the game somehow.
If they do show up, we’re just hoping that gameplay and progression ins’t too dependent on them, and they are implemented as more of a vanity perk than something that you might need to pay for to play any further. All of that aside, the trailer sure does make the game look it could plenty of fun. The turn based combat is something that resonates with a lot of people when you think about an RPG, so it’s nice to see that Rovio went this route.
