In Epic War Saga one buys stuff with gold, and sometimes crystals. There are five ways to get gold, doing quest levels, fighting with others at the Arena, completing achievements, getting it through daily rewards, or buying more with crystals. To get more crystals one uses kreds, completes achivements, or gets them through daily rewards. There are two modes of gameplay: Quest, where one fights against AI like the previous games, or Arena, where one also fights against AI but the AI uses what that person has equiped and their stats.
- 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 (at least on Kongregate, but there have been reports that the Armor Games version doesn't start either). 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.
