Infinity Blade Release Date and Price Announced

Chair and Epic Games have just sent some concrete details about their upcoming action RPG Infinity Blade. The game will go live on the App Store on Thursday, December 9, and will cost $5.99. They also noted that it’s a universal app, so it will play in native resolution on an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. They also released eight crisp new screenshots, which we’ve posted below.

We also learned that when Infinity Blade is first released, it will be single player only, but they’re already hard at work on a free update that will allow multiplayer through Game Center. Also, the game will only work on iPads and third- and fourth-generation iPhones and iPod Touches.

Infinity Blade is notable not only because it’s being developed by the gurus behind the Xbox Live Arcade game Shadow Complex, but also because it will be the first game to use the iOS version of the Unreal Engine 3, which powered the gorgeous Epic Citadel demo.
