Gameloft has given us a little taste of their first Unreal-powered title, Wild Blood. It looks to be a no-holds-barred 3D combat game, complete with high fantasy gear and the full complement of custom abilities. Gameplay will span the gamut of melee hack-and-slash, archery for ranged combat, and more than a few explosive spells.

Of course, Gameloft isn't saying too much that isn't in the trailer, but with coins dropping out of just about every defeated enemy, I can't help but assume that in-app purchases are going to be a big part of the picture here (as is the case with most Gameloft titles). Let's just hope that at least they'll make the game free if they're going to be pushy with the microtransactions. 

Still, the the art's fantastic and the gameplay looks hectic. Who's interested? Anyone else getting a slight Infinity Blade vibe from this one?

I can't say that I'm impressed with Gameloft's new copycat game. I can't imagine playing a God of War/Kingdoms of Amalur type game as a freemium. No thank you.

Sure if i was buying it for a console id agreee with your logic, but its for a mobile so i will play it.

From the trailers this looks nothing like Infinity Blade, unless by "Infinity Blade vibe" you mean they both have swords and dudes dressed in armor.

This is very clearly a DMC or God of War clone. Please let up with the freemium crap and let me buy the game outright, this is getting annoying. At least give me the option.

Sadly, we won't get that option.

The pacing, gameplay and difficulty has to be set differently for a freemium than for a "paid" game. With a "paid" game, the pacing can be set up to reward a sense of accomplishment throughout the story.

With a freemium, the pacing has to be setup to get people a good way into the game, then ramp up the tedium to "encourage" transactions.

Now I thought they said this wasn't going to be freemium. Maybe the coins are simply for in game use, like buying weapons from the smithy.

if anything they will continue to do what they have done with the last couple of games like The Amazing Spiderman and The Dark Knight Rises where you buy the game and there are only IAPs to progress faster for the impatient people but you can still unlock everything if you just play the game normally

Looks fun to me. Even if i spend 5 bucks on in app ppurchasing i dont care. Its better than buying $50 console games that can only be played at my house.
