Infinity Blade, the spectacular sword slinger from Epic Games studio ChAIR Entertainment, has gone free for the first time since making its App Store debut back in December 2010. The title, which is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, has been chosen by Apple as its free App of the Week.
We’ve been eagerly awaiting Infinity Blade: Dungeons since it was teased by Chair Entertainment during Apple’s iPad keynote back in March. But six months later, the title is yet to hit the App Store. There’s a chance, however, that we could finally see its launch today during Apple’s iPhone 5 keynote. Here’s why.
Kicking off this week’s must-have games roundup is Wild Blood, Gameloft’s first game to be built upon the impressive Unreal Engine, which lets you live out the story of Sir Lancelot. There’s also a new title from Marvel, the awesome sequel to VS. Racing, and Square Enix’s latest Final Fantasy title.
Headlining this week’s must-have iOS games roundup is an awesome new platformer called Mikey Shorts, which offers its own unique style of play focused on speed. We also have The Simpsons: Tapped Out, which makes its App Store debut for the second time; VOTE!!!, the latest title from Infinity Blade creators Chair Entertainment; and a great space-age building game from Gameloft.
Despite the success of Gears of War on consoles, it is in fact Infinity Blade for iPad which holds the title for Epic Games’s most profitable game of all time. The popular sword fighter, which has been showcased at a number of Apple keynotes over the years, has earned a whopping $30 million since its debut just 18 months ago.
We’ve been looking forward to Infinity Blade: Dungeons since it was shown off at Apple’s new iPad unveiling back in March, and we’re even more excited after watching this incredible gameplay video. The Diablo-style dungeon crawler is very different to Chair’s previous Infinity Blade titles, but this video proves it’s just as beautiful.
