The third installment of the Infinity Blade trilogy has been a long time coming. We thought we would see its release sometime during iOS 6’s lifespan, but the app had been postponed nearly to death. Last week, Apple showed off Infinity Blade III at its iPhone event with a promise that it would launch alongside iOS 7. Well, the game’s developer has made good on its promise. Infinity Blade III is now on sale in the App Store.
“It’s been amazing to see the continued success of Infinity Blade and to have the ability to tell a complex story across different mediums, using a single device we take wherever we go,” chAIR’s Creative Director Donald Mustard said. “We’re so proud of Infinity Blade III and feel it not only offers a powerful finale to the series, but also gives mobile gaming another giant push forward.”
The new game (64-bit on iPhone 5s) promises fantastic iOS touch controls, tap-to-move navigation, a dynamic 3-D world, two different characters to play, and more. You be able to invite allies to join your adventure in The Hideout. Meet up with the Gemcutter, the Potionmaster, the Blacksmith, and the Merchant to unlock new skills and strengths for your fighter.
You’ll be able to choose a variety of game paths, find new quests, play side missions, and fight in a group setting. Battle enemies as Siris the hero or Isa the rogue. Team up with players from around the world for group-based “ClashMobs” where you can unlock rare treasures and earn exclusive items.
Bonus features include detailed story cutscenes, voice talents from John Noble and Troy Baker, the animated “Infinity Blade: Origins” short film, and the in-game debut of “Monster,” a new song from Imagine Dragons.
Infinity Blade III is available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch for $6.99. Download it in the App Store today.
