Char Entertainment and Epic Games’ Infinity Blade — a game we called “an elegiac app store masterpiece” and one of the best games on the App Store — is getting another beefy, free update on Thursday, and aside from more content, it brings one huge new feature to the game: multiplater deathmatch. Swoon.
Starting Thursday, Infinity Blade will get its next big content pack in Infinity Blade: Arena.
The big news is the “Enter The Arena” mode, which allows two players to go head-to-head via Game Center. One player takes the role of the protagonist knight, while the other player controls one of the games awesome titans, in a challenge for dueling supremacy.
But that’s not all. Another addition is the new survivor mode, in which players have to face off against a legion of Titans to see how far they can go without dying.
Otherwise, existing Infinity Blade customers can expect new holiday helms (a new helm for every season) and over two dozen new magic rings, swords, shields and helmets, as well as Facebook integration, new achievements, additional leaderboards and more.
Chair’s showing iOS devs how it’s done. In Infinity Blade, not only have they released one of the best AAA games on the App Store, but they’re keeping it updated as if it were Angry Birds. I’ll see you guys on Thursday in GameCenter. I’ll be the titan.
