Gameloft teases next-gen Infinity Blade rival for Android

One of the biggest game developers for mobile, Gameloft, is at it again this afternoon teasing an upcoming game. This isn't just another run-of-the-mill mobile game either. This is their absolute first game to use the highly impressive Unreal Engine for graphics, only on mobile. If you've been waiting for something impressive like Infinity Blade to arrive on Android -- this is it.

The extremely popular and visually impressive game on iOS, Infinity Blade (and 2), never made it to Android but Gameloft looks to change that by making something similar themselves. Epic Games is the team behind both Infinity Blade and the Unreal Graphics engine. Gameloft today is teasing their first game to use the next-gen gaming engine, but we don't have a name for it yet. Epic's Unreal Engine powers some of the biggest games like all of the Gears of Wars, Batman Arkham Asylum and City, Mass Effect 3 and more.

Bringing the Unreal Engine technology to mobile has been a huge process, and the first game to use the technology on Android was Dungeon Defenders. Gameloft isn't sharing too many details about this upcoming game, but hopefully we'll hear more soon. We don't even have a name yet but the "hunt for hints" is going on at their Facebook page.

As soon as Gameloft reveals the teaser trailer and a title to this game we'll make sure to update and let everyone know. This is expected to be their biggest game release yet and we can't wait to see what they have in store. With all the powerful quad-core processors and devices on Android I can't wait to play this. Most likely the name will include the word "Sword" or "Blade" in there somewhere. Any guesses?

    Hm… I’m thinking “Googol Blade” or “Infinity Sword”. “Infinity Sword” seems most likely.

    This is not an Infinity Blade rival, I have the game and the gameplay is a lot different, maybe like God Of War. The closest game to Infinity Blade for Android is LEGEND by GLU, as well as Blood & Glory, but they’re not as good as Infinity Blade. Hope gameloft release a game like that so we can play it on our Android smartphones.
