While we're barely able to keep up with GDC insanity, the massive announcement of the iPad 2 and all the other craziness taking place this week Chair decided to go releasing a major update to their Unreal Engine-powered sword fighter Infinity Blade [$2.99]. The update, dubbed "The Deathless Kings" adds an entirely new dungeon, new enemies, as well as six new arenas which apparently double the size of the game.

Hardcore players will be able to start a new game+, which removes the level cap, allows for re-mastering of items, and unlocks brand new items in the store. In all, 30 new items have been added to the game and new achievements have been added to farm as well. Of course, there have been various tweaks made to the game to make it even better too.

We absolutely loved Infinity Blade in our review, and recommend anyone with an iPad or recent iOS device pick it up while it's on sale. This massive update just further sweetens the deal.

    Downloading this at fucking warp speed, so pumped for new areas and items and suchlike. Any word on the promised multiplayer?

  • DC Daniel

    Didn't the dudes from infinty blade say that infinity blade would always be the same price? #liarliarpantsonfire

      So

      • PAK's

        So, people who normally would have waited for a discount, decided to buy the game anyways, since a discount wasn't a option. This effectively increases the profit made from Infinity Blade. However this is achieved by misleading customers. Even though 2$ isn't really a big deal, it's the principle that matters. Misleading customers damages a company's reputation. Especially for a company as big as Chair Entertainment Group. So yeah, misleading is bad :P

        Naughty naughty.

        Such is life. I don't think it's particularly naughty. They can do whatever they want. The question is always, do you feel like you got what you paid for? If you don't, then there is reason to be upset they lowered the price. But if you think you got $6 out of the original, then who cares?

      Infinity Blade has been the same price for four months. Compare that To EA and Sim City Deluxe HD, or Dead Space, where the price drop came days, and weeks respectively after launch.

      I can walk into my local Gamestation and find any number of new not pre owned games for %50 off after four months on the market.

      Besides, I believe they said they wouldn't cut the pice for Christmas sale app store freeze rank purposes. Not because they would never lower the price.

    Update installed. Already went through one of the new areas. Pretty cool!
    Can't wait for the multiplayer update, though.

    • Causti3

      How do you update it, is there a button or something?

  • YoureAMessy

    I don't have a device that can run it yet, but I still bought it.

    • spidey

      epic!

  • DarkSideDanger

    Really annoyed there is no multiplayer! That is all I wanted seeing as I have played through 25 bloodlines already. I didn't want to play new areas I wanted to play PEOPLE! Neverthe less I am downloading the update and am excited to spend a bunch of saved gold on new sheeit. $1,000,000 spending spree!!!!

    • Ajerio

      I have been through more than 40 bloodlines.

  • CrazyOkie

    Not sure where the $2.99 came from, if you already own the game it appears to be a free update.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ben-Ruddock/654075778 Ben Ruddock

      The game is reduced to $2.99, the update is free.

      The APP is 2.99. Cmon here.

    Just bought the game on my french iPad. The game crashes right after the intro logos. Anyone else experiencing this ?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ben-Ruddock/654075778 Ben Ruddock

      Most likely it's because your iPad is French, it's just surrenders to anything awesome, like Infinity Blade.

      • Anon

        Um. You seem to be implying that Nazis are awesome. Was that your intention?

        Just, you know, checking.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ben-Ruddock/654075778 Ben Ruddock

        I'd say they certainly inspired awe, yes, though obviously not for good reasons. I think this is a little off topic :P

        Touché.

        omg...funniest comment I've read all day. Literally scared my co-working laughing so loud.

      try rebooting the iPad. It's a common issue with an iPad that has been on for too long...not enough memory for the more intense games.

      press and hold the power button (not the home button) until "slide to power off" appears. Slide it, iPad will shut down. Once it's finished shutting down, press and hold the power button until you see the apple logo appear.

    WTF, when I go to my character screen, I had 175 skill points to spend! Anyone know why? Not complaining or anything...

      Same thing here.
      Maybe all the levelling we couldn't do before was given as a one huge upgrade.
      Usually when you master a object you get 3 or 4 points...

      • Gwet17

        Or maybe current owners of IB got that as a gift to compensate for the price drop they said would never happen.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dimitris-Katsafouros/666754640 Dimitris Katsafouros

    A lot of love put in to the update!!
    It's just awesome!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Cristiano-Fernandez/100001794208078 Cristiano Fernandez

    Sure looks awesome!
    but $2.99 for an update?

    • Gwet17

      No, the game is on sale for three dollars to celebrate the new update.

  • Gwet17

    The update killed my iPod after playing for a few minutes... GRRRRRR!

    Epic game with epic update.

    Infinity Blade has been my most played iOS app of all time, and now this update makes the game at least 2x better.

  • Psac

    Will buy the game now as soon as I can get to a wifi connection...

  • elamre

    no worries all, the people who buy it with the discount wont get the extra levels. those are only for early buyers afaik.

  • Marvin_cheung94

    Does the newgame+ take away all of your gold and weapons, because if it does, is it really worth doing?

    • infinitybladeFREAK

      it is worth doing because you keep your level and it allows someone that mastered everything to lvl up to say lvl 100
