The Infinity Blade series comes to an end with Kingdom Come

IB3-KingdomCome.138226.o

Here’s the bad news: Chair’s Infinity Blade series, which has been one of the biggest showcases of what the iPhone and iPad hardware can do for gaming, is set to end next week.

Here’s the good news. Infinity Blade is going out with a bang, with Infinity Blade III getting its fourth and final content update, Kingdom Come.

There’s not much information on the update so far, except for a cinematic teaser and a post on the official Chair blog.

“All good things must come to an end, even the Infinity Blade trilogy,” Chair announces in a new blog post. “On September 4, ChAIR will release the final content update for Infinity Blade III, titled Kingdom Come. This update, free to all Infinity Blade III players, will reveal some new secrets, answer more questions, and set you on a quest to defeat one very pissed off dragon.”

There’s also this new teaser, which also flashes back to some of the highlights of the series

It’s a shame that the series is coming to the end. Infinity Blade III was released the same day as iOS 7 last year, and I had personally hoped we might see Infinity Blade IV make a surprise appearance at September 9th’s iPhone 6 event. The Infinity Blade games were always a good way to show off what a new iPhone could do.

Still, cheer up. If Infinity Blade is over, now Chair can concentrate on pushing the boundaries of iOS’s hardware for their next game. I can’t wait.
