Chair has today posted a new video teasing its upcoming Infinity Blade III title, the third installment in the developer’s popular hack-and-slash series. The game first debuted during Apple’s iPhone event on Tuesday, where it demonstrated the power of the A7.

Today’s clip is entitled ‘Infinity Blade: Origins,’ and it does a great job of summing up events in the first two games and introducing the third. In typical Infinity Blade-fashion, both graphics and audio of the video are top-notch—so it’s definitely worth watching…

Touch Arcade, who’s been playing an early build of the game, reports (via MacRumors):

“Similar to the other two titles, Infinity Blade III features the same best-in-class swipe-based controls. I’m not sure what it is about the Infinity Blade games specifically, but your swipes feel infinitely more connected to the actual action in the game compared to others.

Oh, and if you were hoping for free roaming control, you’re out of luck. The game is entirely combat focused, with the exact same kind of stopping, searching for sacks of gold, and moving forward via defeating increasingly difficult enemies.

Without getting deeper into review-y sorts of stuff which we’re saving until after the game is actually available, I’d say the best way to describe Infinity Blade III is that it’s just more Infinity Blade. There’s not even a tinge of free to play to it, it looks better than any game I’ve ever seen on the App Store, and I’m not sure it gets much more must-have than this.”

Infinity Blade III, which Chair is referring to as the ‘conclusion’ of the trilogy, introduces new worlds, gameplay concepts, and characters. Additionally, the developer says that the game features a sophisticated storyline with an estimated 45 minutes of cutscenes.

‘Infinity Blade III Reborn’ will launch alongside iOS 7 on September 18 as a universal app. It’ll be priced at $6.99, and will be compatible with the iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPod touch 4, and newer.

      Ya rlly need to play some COD:ST, modern combat 4, dead effect. All in all MC4 is the best online fps ever created, hands down.

      • JulianZHuang

        those are all the same game haha. CS 1.6!!!

      • omrishtam

        COD:ST is shit

  • 4p0c4lyps3

    Infinite repetition. Pretty, but lame all the same. For those not in the kno, play Call Of Duty: Strike Team. Awesome game in every regard.

    • somaxd

      lol call of duty…

    • omrishtam

      and call of duty isnt repetitive?

    Awesome trailer! I never played this saga- is it worth it from a playability perspective or is this just cool GFX wise?

    • dedegarrido

      it’s not worth it… the game is not even interesting.. it’s just click here, circle here and YEY, you won. There’s no “freedom” in the game… I don’t know how to explain it, play it once and you will get me

      • Diego Gastón Milano

        I think I got the idea. That’s exactly the impression I got when I saw the gameplay videos online. My first impression was it was more like an interactive cinematic adventure rather than a truly free gameplay experience.
        I do admit graphics are gorgeous though, that’s the smoking gun on this saga.

        My advice would be to try it for yourself. I would never ever rely on the opinions here. I’m planning on getting it as I enjoyed both of the previous versions.

      • Diego Gastón Milano

        I know, and I agree. But I believe these games are overpriced if the playability is as such so limited.
        I miss the Samurai Revenge saga.

      • rasengan720 .

        swipe here, swipe there too :P

    • 4p0c4lyps3

      It’s lame, trust me, lame. Swipe left, swipe rite, swipe down, swipe up, repeat… over and over and over again. Thts the crux of the gameplay. A complete and total bore fest.

    • Ricky

      Its just the same as fruit ninja but with much bettet graphic

    • Rowan09

      It’s ok. Some great games are NOVA, Trigger Fist, and one of my favorites Amateur Surgeon 3.

  • Trojan

    Can’t believe people enjoy this repetitive junk. Lol. It’s not even open world.

  • Question

    • Dani Hayes

      Indeed.

  • seyss

    • Joseph

      I guess it’s a good thing it’s a recap video and not a video that was marked Gameplay Footage then, huh?

  • Tom García
