Infinity Blade III was officially unveiled at Apple's iPhone keynote this week, and to the delight of many the game will be launching worldwide next week on September 18th. Today Epic and Chair have unveiled Infinity Blade: Origins, an animated short which recounts the events of the first two Infinity Blade games and acts as the introductory cutscene in Infinity Blade III. It's awesome, check it out.

We've got Infinity Blade III in our grubby little hands and can confirm that this sucker is good. However, both Eli and myself have been talking about how neither of us paid much attention to the storylines in the Infinity Blade games, but are starting to wish we had. Especially with the two novels, 'Infinity Blade: Awakening' and the newly-released 'Infinity Blade: Redemption' fleshing out the lore so much, I'm anxious to dive back into the first two games over the weekend and try to play a little catch up. We'll have more coverage of Infinity Blade III leading up to its release, so hang tight.

    The storyline is better than the game, in my opinion. And the game is amazing, so that's saying a lot.

    Just finished Redemtion up this morning. Really fills you in on the Deathless. The God King! Not what I expected. Can't wait to finish up the story line in IB3. Wednesday can't get here soon enough!

    I'm also really hoping this is not the end for the Infinity Blade franchise.

    That was awesome.

    The storyline in the books is fantastic and adds so much to the overall world. They are a quick read and totally worth your time!! (Even if you didn't pay too much attention to the game storylines - the books kind of summarize the events of the games in a smart way) the newest book is pretty brilliant in the way it reveals new details. Was an awesome read - and adds a TON to the universe. Definitely recommend

    You guys should totally dive in. The IB storyline is by far my favorite story in all of ios.

  • JFF studios

    Wow just wow

  • Earth Vs. Me

    I feel exactly the same way. I just glossed over the stories in the first two games, and as soon as I saw the trailer for III I immediately wished I followed it a little more closley.

    SPOILER: The Planet of the Apes-like "Holy shit, it's Earth in the future" moment was awesome. I was like WHAAAAAAT??
