On the heels of the pyrotechnic announcement for Infinity Blade 2, Chair Entertainment has dropped another content update for the original Infinity Blade [$5.99]. Content Pack #4, as it’s been oh-so-cleverly dubbed, gives you new rings, swords, helmets, and shields to level up and use against its brand new enemy the “RookBane.” Chair describes the ‘Bane as “fierce and deadly,” which kinda calls into question the character of the game’s other monsters. I mean, what are these guys, chopped liver?

If you’re one of the two or three people who are really into Infinity Blade’s lore, know that this update also packs in a “sneak peek” at the game’s book, "Infinity Blade: Awakening." The whole thing is available right now, actually, on the App Store for $2.99.

That's not a RookBane, btw.

A small little side-note here, but it appears as if Infinity Blade 2 will launch with its share of new equipment and items in addition to the pre-existing stuff in Infinity Blade. I’m not sure if this applies to new items added in updates, but if it does, this update rolls in a lot of content that you’ll see again this December.

    So I should just wait and buy Infinity Blade 2 if I haven't bought this one yet? It'll have all of the content from the first version?

      The 2nd one have previous existing items and weapons, its not going to be the same story or setting so you may want to pick up the first one but wait for a sale and get it for $3 if you want to save or if u feel like supporting them get it at full price like I did, totally worth it either way

      The next one is only for iPhone 4S... because of the hardware requirements. You may not be able to play it.

        No, it won't. The thing is that it will look prettier in an iPhone 4S, but it will also run even on an iPhone 3GS.

    Not really related, but has anyone noticed that the featured apps on the AppStore haven't changed like they normally do?

    Anyone else's Infinity Blade just crashing constantly on startup after this update?

      yes—i've seen this with other apps too—unfortunately I fear that the only way to fix it is to delete the existing app and then reinstall. you should probably sync it first, but not sure if that will ruin your current character

        Thanks for the tip, thankfully a simple restart of my device seems to have fixed this for me though.
