We saw a brief hint recently for Gameloft's upcoming game based on the Unreal Engine. A single still image showed a man holding a giant sword, covered in blood, as he stood alone in a field of his enemies' remains. Yeah. Awesome. Well, now Gameloft has unveiled a trailer for the game that teaser teased. Watch it. Now.

Yeah, this looks kinda big. And by that, I of course mean "really big." Gameloft is touting this as its "first Unreal game." I suppose that means Gameloft's other first Unreal Engine game is going to be pushed back to being released second. No matter. We can wait. In the meantime, if you're feeling like indulging a bit of conspiracy theory, the developer says that "a hint about the story is hidden in the video." Disregarding that hints about story is one of the reasons trailers exist, the hunt is now on to figure out just what the heck Gameloft hid in there.

No word yet on release date or pricing info. All we know is that Wild Blood is set to arrive on both iOS and Android "soon." Here's hoping it's as incredible as it looks when it finally arrives.

    Looks okay. I wonder if the visuals are a bit restrained for performance issues or if it's an early teaser.

    Eric, March of Heroes had been scrapped last year September. So yea, this is their first game outright.

    But I'm not all too impressed with the game's graphics. The waterfall at the beginning is just soooooooooo fake. Here's hoping it's not as infested with bugs as NOVA 3 was.

    Might pick it up if they support the N7.

    I hope it isn't freemium, looks good from the concept images.

    Heh, mobile devs are so focused on visuals right now. I really wish they'd shift focus to gameplay. You can have the prettiest looking game going, but if the game play isn't solid, then you're just left with a nice looking mess. :P

      The better looking a game the more skeptical I am of it. It seems that most developers who go for high end graphics are chasing a console game experience which doesn't work for me on a touch screen. I have other machines for those games. Give me something made for the touch screen.

      I didn't love Infinity Blade's gameplay, but at least it was a pretty game designed for the device it was released on.

    Well...I can't get too excited, I won't be able to play it on my Defy. Also, I think the hidden thing has to do with the statues...looks a hell lot like The Lord of the Rings. Especially that troll. Bigger than reddit's.

    I've seen Unity games better implement graphics features than this one. I bet this, like Asphalt, would only look good on the iPad. Still waiting for them to fix the graphics for the Asus Prime...

    In the trailer description they said to find a hint for the release date in the trailer the weather was rainy so probably it will be released in the winter
