If you’re tinkering with the Unreal Engine, but don’t have the money for thousands of professionally-made assets, then we’ve got some good news for you. Assets from the mobile-based Infinity Blade series have been made available for Unreal Engine users to download and use, free of charge.
The assets come in the form of seven separate content packs, namely: Grass Lands, Ice Lands, Fire Lands, Warriors, Adversaries, Effects, and Weapons. There was an eighth pack somewhere labeled “Sounds”, but for the life of me I can’t seem to find it. All in all, these packs include thousands of assets, totaling to a value of $3 million.
However, there is a pretty simple legal disclaimer: this content can only be used in Unreal Engine projects, with no exceptions. Using these in other engines violates the Unreal Engine end-user license agreement (EULA), which is likely enforced by releasing the Kraken. Or court orders, more likely. Regardless, if you want to play around with a load of free, quality assets and maybe get your indie career off the ground, then click on the links above to be taken to the store page.
If you don’t have the latest Unreal Engine SDK, you can get it here.
