IBR_eBookCoverAnother Infinity Blade book is coming down the pipes -- and it's available to pre-order now [$2.99] on iTunes, if you're into this kind of thing.

The book's called Infinity Blade: Redemption, and it's being penned by Wheel of Time's Brandon Sanderson. Specifically, the book is said to reveal a little bit more about the Deathless and "the true nature of the world itself."

As most of you probably know from playing the games, Infinity Blade's world is a weird mix of fantastical magic and insane sci-fi technology. Also, time is constantly shifting and distorting. The player is usually kept in the dark about the whys and hows, so these books have been really interesting reads.

Redemption is available on iBooks this September 9. You can pre-order it now, though, on iTunes and read a preview chapter. Can't help but think this is a clear sign that a new, actual Infinity Blade game is coming down the pipes, too, which makes that rumor seem all the more true. We'll see!

    Redemption in the form of making you go through the same castle over and over again. OMG.

  • curtneedsaride

    Yeah, defunct32, let's hope they start exploring some other forms of gameplay and exploration... and reveal a little more in this book. Still play the games and read the book, but their gloss has fades with every bloodline.

    oh come on!!!! the first words of the title should've been " this is just a book"!! i got all excited thinking that was IB3 announcement.

      If you re-read the first chapter a few dozen times and pretend you're leveling up before finishing the rest of the book, it's almost like a third game. And you can make clashing steel sounds with your mouth when you swipe to turn pages to make it feel like parrying.

    Where is shadow complex 2?

    • ImJPaul

      Is that a thing or are you just making it up?

    Just wanted to point out that Wheel of Time isn't really Brandon Sandersons book. Brandon Sanderson was brought in to finish the series after Robert Jordan's (James Oliver Rigney, Jr.) passing.

    This should hold us over while we patiently await Infinity Blade: Dungeons.

      Was this a joke? You're going to be waiting a while since they cancelled that :/

    Infinity Blade : Redundant

  • Adrian Werner

    I love how these days a genuinely A-tier authors are writing stories set in videogame worlds. Shows how far the medium has advanced.

    While I've tired of the Infinity Blade games (as everyone else has mentioned, they do become redundant after a certain number of bloodlines), the first book was actually pretty good, and made IB2 more enjoyable to play. Looking forward to giving this one a read next month. *pre-ordered*

    Feel so pissed that we never got the dungeon iteration.

    New book out on the 9th, Infinity Blade 3 revealed on the 10th during the iPhone conference. Can't be a coincidence.
