Infinity Blade 3 dragon has four times the polygons of any character from Epic

So, how much can the iPhone 5S handle? Quite a lot. While every generation of iPhone offers a boost in performance, Infinity Blade 3 creative director Donald Mustard said that the leap made for the 5S is "shocking."

In fact, according to Mustard, the dragon featured in the game's debut trailer is more complex than any character they've created before. "That dragon had four times the polycount of any console character we've ever done in Gears of War or Shadow Complex or anything like that," he said. "It had four times the texture detail, the normal map detail, all on that dragon."

Apple is showing off new iPhones to the world, which means Epic Games needs to announce a new Infinity Blade game. Infinity Blade 3 is "the epic conclusion of the Infinity Blade trilogy," and it promises to have eight worlds, two playable characters, and areas as big or bigger than the entire first game. It has the honor of being the first-ever 64-bit game for iOS devices.

Infinity Blade 3 has you playing as Siris and the "stealthy female warrior-thief Isa." Each character features three unique combat styles, as they try to destroy the Worker of Secrets.
