Rovio has just posted a new YouTube video teasing a brand new Angry Birds game. And if the Finnish entertainment company is to be believed, the upcoming game is going to be "epic." The video, embedded below, begins with the declaration, "the most epic soft launch ever." It then proceeds to shows some dramatic, if not exactly epic, shots of a knight's armor, ultimately revealing the suit's occupant as none other Red Bird, hidden inside the helmet. "Starting in Australia and Canada," the video concludes. "Other countries to follow." If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. In the video's description, Rovio states, "Perhaps the most Epic soft launch ever - whatever that means!?" Yes, indeed, Rovio. Whatever does this mean!? If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Well, as noted by Pocket Gamer:
Over on AngryBirdsNest, you see, one eagle-eyed person spotted a silhouetted image (below) of Rovio's infamous birds dressed as a wizard, knight, and an archer in the company's video teaser of what it had in store for 2014 (above).In all likelihood, then, the Angry Birds game in question is going to be set in an epic fantasy world in the vein of "The Lord of the Rings." Whether it's based on a popular epic fantasy franchise like "The Lord of the Rings" is, of course, yet unknown. This new game is not the first to be teased by Rovio this year. Last month, it teased a new Angry Birds title that turned out to be Angry Birds Stella, featuring the eponymous Pink Bird and her BFFs.
