Chair Entertainment’s Infinity Blade is an elegiac masterpiece, an iOS exclusive and a system seller that showcases what’s possible on Apple’s iOS platform better than any other game. Unbelievable console-quality graphics, great soundtrack and atmosphere, complex weapons and upgrade system with RPG elements to keep you coming back for more all contribute to it being one of the best iPhone and iPad games money can buy.
The original game recently went free, as did the second installment which normally costs $6.99 and was yesterday named IGN’s Free Game of the Month. As for Infinity Blade III (a $6.99 download for the iPhone and iPad), the substantial Soul Hunter update from a month and a half ago brought us a bunch of new items and goals and an all-new quest that includes a new location and a new enemy, the Deathless Bloodmage.
But that was just warming up as Chair has announced that the upcoming Ausar Rising update will be even bigger. Due next week, the update will let you revisit the originalInfinity Blade castle and explore the origins of the Infinity Blade protagonist.
More on that, plus a teaser video, right after the break…
