Angry Birds Epic, an all-new turn-based RPG featuring the Angry Birds as legendary heroes, is out now worldwide for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, Rovio has announced.

Players will explore a fantasy version of Piggy Island, a land filled with caves, tropical beaches, and frosty mountains.

Using a crafting system to create wacky weapons, upgrade characters, armour and potions, the legendary birds must defeat King Pig, Wiz Pig and Prince Porky.

"The Angry Birds characters are a perfect fit for a role-playing game because they have strong personalities and individual superpowers. They are almost like character classes from the get g," said Jami Laes, executive vice president of games, Rovio Entertainment. "Angry Birds Epic isn't straight-up fantasy, but we have kept that weird and surprising Rovio humour in there. Get ready to head into battle with some pretty wacky equipment and powers under your belt!"

Angry Birds Epic is free to download now.
