If you love Epic’s trilogy-concluding game of immortal swordsmanship, Infinity Blade III, things are getting better. As is their wont, Epic has opted to release a massive 1.1 Infinity Blade III update that adds a huge number of improvements, as well as new content including a new location and an enemy, the fearful Deathless Bloodmage.
Called the ‘Soul Hunter’ update, changes include new items, new goals, and a major quest in which you must go head-to-head with the aforementioned Bloodmage. There’s also a new Explore feature that allows you to return to unlocked areas for additional loot and XP.
But that’s not all. Here’s what else is new:
INFINITY BLADE III: Soul Hunter
– New quest, location, and enemy: Travel to the Metius Observatory to face the Deathless Bloodmage known as Oslim, on your quest to hunt down the missing Infinity Weapons.
