Epic Games Releasing Unreal Development Kit Update on Thursday

Epic Games, developers of some decidedly epic games on such as Infinity Blade for iDevices, and even Gears of War 2 and 3.

Unreal Dev Kit

The development kit makes it easier for developers to produce games with high-end animations and graphics on iOS. If Infinity Blade and Epic Citadel are any way to judge future games developed on this engine, then it looks as if iOS has a very bright future in gaming ahead of it (as well as a perpetually low battery).

While the Unreal Development Kit (UDK) is free to download and use, developers seeking to sell paid games running on the engine must pay a $99.00 licensing fee, as well in 25% royalties after the first $5,000 in sales.

With Infinity Blade being able to boast $1.6 million in 5 days, there’s definitely a market for games with powerful graphics and storylines, along with the Doodle Jumps and Angry Birds of the App Store. So, developers: who’s up to the challenge of making another stunning game to go toe-to-toe with the likes of the graphics juggernaut, Infinity Blade?
