    Back in March, Rovio launched the next installment in its ridiculously popular Angry Birds franchise: A role-playing game (RPG) called Angry Birds Epic.

    However, the soft-launch meant that the app was only available in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. But now, it’s available globally. While it has been iOS-only so far, it’s also launching for Android and Windows Phone today too.

    Given that this is an RPG, it’s less about hurling birds through the air and more about narrative. Indeed, combat is turn-based, while there’s also a “challenging end-game.” Check out the official promo video for yourself below.
