So this is gorgeous. The video up top is a leaked demo of the Unreal Engine 4. It's been shown at GDC, and Kotaku isn't sure if it's a new, next gen game or just a tech demo. But either way, it's stunning for in-game visuals.
Infinity Blade, the stunning Unreal Engine 3-powered iOS game, just got a fat new update, bringing six new game arenas (essentially doubling the size of the game), ten new enemies, and over 30 new swords, shields, magic rings and the like. Hopefully you're knight's well rested. Oh, and the app is on sale for just $3…
We've seen HDR make life look hyperreal before but this short film takes it to another level. The chapel is real, built in 1796 in Poland, but it looks like something out of Gears of War. Just watch.
Then dubbed Project Sword, Epic Games' Infinity Blade had as grand an unveiling as any iOS game could ever hope for—an introduction from Steve Jobs himself. It's finally available, and, in short, it was definitely worth the hype.
