So, what's Chair Entertainment been up to, you wonder? Well, at least part of the studio has been busy designing and implementing Infinity Blade 2's [$6.99] long-awaited, and awesome-sounding, ClashMobs feature. IGN Wireless just posted a short hands-on piece that details its functionality and otherwise shows off the new-look element.

From what we're gathering, the early promise of ClashMob has been realized: in it, you and thousands of others take turns beating the crap out of one really big monster in an epic attempt to gather exclusive loot. The challenges come in the form of skirmishes, and seem like they'll have a mini-game sort of feel to them. One type skirmish has you doing the most damage to a monster that you possibly can within 30 seconds, for example.

IGN details some of its social hooks:

The more connected friends you have participating in ClashMobs, the better benefits you'll be eligible for. Bonuses like additional combat time, bonus victory cash and extra ClashMob attempts will be awarded to players with more MyMob members.

ClashMobs are due out as part of a larger update next week. Expect new equipment, new monsters, a new gem interface, and "a gem forge" feature. Check out IGN for more info because, man, this sounds like the greatest thing ever.

    Basically this is The Kill Everyone Project as a feature + time restrictions + rewards.

  • Christoffer Karlsson

    Guess we should make a TouchArcade MyMob mob then. Feels like a solid plan to me.

  • CandyCaneNJ

    I will buy this now because of this awesome sounding feature! A TA mob is a great idea

    Also remove the GOD DAMN intros, so iPad1, iPhone 3Gs and iPod Touch 4 users can also enjoy this game without deleting it manually .... damn

  • John Usher

    I haven't played this is ages. Has it stopped deleting your save data all the time now?

    • Declan Bowers

      Yeah, it's fixed. Game wprked fine for a couple of months, but recently it hasn't been working at all merely crashes on launch.

      • Laszlo Tuss

        Just delete the 2 intro like i said....
        Use iFunBox if you unbroken.

        Have you tried a hard reboot on your iPad? That usually works for me. (press and hold home button and sleep/wake button at the same time, keep holding until the iPad shuts down, which is after the red slider comes up, keep pressing until apple logo comes out. Then let go.)

      • Laszlo Tuss

        That's the next step after deleting the two intros....

  • Timothy Polumbo

    how about the ability to sell back items to the store.  why the heck can't i sell old swords back?

    • bear122

      You can, but only if you have multiple copies of the sword
