Angry Birds Epic Launched on iOS and Android Devices

Angry Birds Epic is now live and free to play on iOS and Android!

If you've ever wanted to play an Angry Birds RPG, now is the time: Rovio Entertainment have released Angry Birds Epic onto the iOS App Store and Google Play, and it's free to play!

Angry Birds Epic hopes to be the longest game in the franchise, boasting a sizable campaign and a large number of characters and items to collect as you make your way through Fantasy Piggy Island. Did I mention it's packed with silly hats and costumes? Tons of silly hats and costumes!

Player reviews have been making their way to game's respective app stores since the games release. Fans of the series enjoy the gameplay, but many have a bone to pick with the buff-providing advertisements presented before a battle. Often before you begin a battle, the game will ask if you would like to watch an advertisement to receive a buff for that fight. 

I can attest to the reports that these advertisements are intrusive, and even leave a bad taste in your mouth after losing a fight you were offered a buff prior to (that you turned down). The gameplay is exactly what fans of the series would want from a turn-based Angry Birds RPG, but the massive emphasis on in-app purchases and ads right out the gate can be a downer if you're not into that kind of thing.

Be sure to nab this game soon to see what your friends will be talking about next week!
