Drop your sword, ax, hammer, scythe, or whatever it is you’re holding and head to the App Store right now. Why? It’s only because Infinity Blade can now be downloaded for absolutely free, that’s why.

Infinity Blade, Epic Games’ truly game-changing action RPG for iOS, has just gone free for the first time since its release in December 2010.

Normally available for $5.99, Infinity Blade is currently free by virtue of its having been singled out for Apple’s App of the Week promotion this Valentine’s season. Because, you know, Valentine’s Day and hack-and-slash gaming totally go together:

Love is in the air, and so are swords, axes, hammers and scythes! Celebrate Valentine’s by enjoying the Must-Have iOS Blockbuster for FREE!

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 3.2 or later, Infinity Blade is currently available in the App Store for free. Note that this free offer is valid for a limited time only. So, better get the game now if you haven’t already downloaded and played Infinity Blade.

Its sequel, Infinity Blade II, is also available in the App Store for $6.99. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later.

The third Infinity Blade title, Infinity Blade: Dungeons, has been put on hold on account of the recent closure of the studio behind its development.
