Epic Games announces 'Infinity Blade 3' for iOS

At today's iPhone event, Epic Games announced the final entry in the Infinity Blade trilogy. Details are slim, but Infinity Blade 3 will let you play as one of two different characters, including a new female warrior, and will feature both bigger worlds to explore and bigger bosses to battle — like the fire breathing dragon shown in today's demo. The new and improved graphics, aided no doubt by the new A7 processor, mean that the game will feature "lens flares that would make J.J. Abrams proud," according to Epic.

"Lens flares that would make J.J. Abrams proud."

Apple typically uses games to showcase its new mobile processors — last year the company used Real Racing 3 to demonstrate the power of the A6 on the original iPhone 5. Epic's announcement comes not long after the company revealed that it was cancelling series spin-off Infinity Blade Dungeons, which was originally announced last March. The first Infinity Blade, meanwhile, proved to be the studio's most profitable game ever. Infinity Blade 3 will be launching in the App Store alongside Apple's newest smartphone, the just-announced iPhone 5s on September 18th for $6.99. It will also be compatible with the iPhone 5c, as well as older devices dating back to the iPhone 4 and iPad 2.
