[adsense250itp] Infinity Blade III is now available for download through the App Store. Originally announced for release on the same day as the new iPhones (5s and 5c), the game showed up a few days ahead of schedule. Gamers with devices running iOS 6.0 or later can snag the third and final chapter of the action-role playing saga for a cool $6.99.
Like its predecessors, Infinity Blade III was developed by Epic Games‘ ChAIR Entertainment subsidiary. Although the game is playable on older devices, it has been specifically designed to get the most out of the iPhone 5s’ 64-bit architecture. New rendering effects, such as full-screen vignettes, blur and depth of field will be easily handled by the more powerful mobile chipset.
Infinity Blade, released in December 2010, was the first iOS game to utilize Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. The game was an instant success, making $1.6M in just four days. The subsequent years saw a sequel, Infinity Blade II, and the novella Infinity Blade: Awakenings. Infinity Blade: Dungeons was originally slated to be the third installment of the series, but was eventually scrapped.
