In Epic War Saga one buys stuff with gold, and sometimes crystals. There are seven ways to get gold, doing quest levels, fighting with others at the Arena, completing achievements, getting it through daily rewards, buying more with crystals, getting more with daily quests (relaunch only), or getting more through weekly quests (relaunch only). To get more crystals one used kreds, completed achievements, or got them through daily rewards. There were three modes of gameplay: Quest, where one fights against AI like the previous games, Arena, where one also fights against AI but the AI uses what that person has equipped and their stats, or Tower where one fought against guardians that were hired by that player, and the player could even fight against themselves if that player hired them as their guardian; if there were no guardians, then they would fight against the Tower owner, until the tower was destroyed. If a players tower was destroyed, they could rebuild it, and the Tower also had a function that would allow that player to get awards for every 20 battles won; for more information on the Arena click here, or for more information on the Tower, click here.
- Unlike the previous Epic War games, to play Epic War Saga one must be a member of Kongregate and logged in. (Armor Games also has Epic War Saga, and you can play with your AG account).
- On August 7th 2016, the servers for Epic War Saga went down, giving an "Unknown Game ID" error, now making this game impossible to play. The reason for this is because the cost of running the server was much more expensive than how much money the game was making (one problem is that there were many, many hackers for the game, and another was less people were playing). On December 19th 2016, the game was removed from Kongregate. On January 17th 2017, the game was removed from Armor Games.
- On September 24th 2018, Epic War Saga was relaunched on Kongregate for Kong+ members, and on October 16th 2018, it was opened to all Kongregate members.
- There haven't been any updates to Epic War Saga since March 16th 2019, the reason for this was because the development and updates were costing too much, making future updates unlikely. Although it should remain playable as long as the provider stays up, which shouldn't happen for a while.
