The first teaser for the upcoming Angry Birds game was released by Rovio a few days ago with a heavy emphasis on the word “epic”. Well new details about the game show that it will actually be called “Angry Birds Epic”, and that it will actually be a turn-based RPG style game.

Not only will the new game be RPG style, but it will also feature a rather extensive crafting system. Unfortunately, that’s really all the details we know about it. Angry Birds Epic is still mostly under wraps, but it will be released by Rovio on iOS in Canada, Australia and New Zealand later this week.

If you were worried that the NSA was spying on you while playing Angry Birds, fear not. Rovio has issued a press release to clear the air. Right out of the gate, Rovio makes it clear that they do “not share data, collaborate or collude with any government spy agencies such as NSA or GCHQ anywhere in the world.” This comes after news broke earlier that the NSA may actually be doing so. Rovio says that third party advertising networks seem to be the culprit of the rumors and the company does not allow any third party network to use or trade any user data.

Here’s the latest revelation from documents leaked by US whistleblower Edward Snowden.

While you’re enjoying slinging birds at pigs in Angry Birds, chances are that N.S.A might be tracking your personal information. According to documents leaked by Edward Snowden,  N.S.A and Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters have been working since 2007 towards achieving a method to snatch data from smartphone apps that contain user’s information. The amount of data gathering is not yet known, but reports suggest that data is collected from social network, mapping and gaming apps.

Earlier reports revealed N.S.A eavesdropping on phone calls as well as intercepting text messages in an effort to prevent terrorism acts. However a recent report by the Guardian indicates that every time the user launches a “leaky” application, the spying agencies can collect information related to user’s location, sex, age and other personal information as well as the phone model and screen size.

Angry Birds Star Wars

Rovio is finally updating Angry Birds Star Wars to include its final 30 levels and a finale to the saga in the game. There are 15 levels on an Imperial Star Destroyer and 15 levels on the Death Star, all of which build up to boss fights against Lard Vader and the Emperor. We’ll also finally see Lard Vader unmasked at the conclusion.

Unfortunately, Rovio’s first Star Wars crossover had to come to an end sometime, but it looks like they’re going to make this ending almost as epic as the original Star Wars trilogy. The update (and original game) is free to download below.
