The elegiac masterpiece and one of my favorite games on the iOS platform is set to come to its inevitable conclusion in the final content update, dubbed ‘Kingdom Come.’
Free to all Infinity Blade III players, ‘Kingdom Come’ will reveal some new secrets, answer more questions and “set you on a quest to defeat one very pissed off dragon,” as ChAIR put it.
According to the post, the epic conclusion to the Infinity Blade saga delivers a stunning new environment, in addition to dozens of new items and weapons, and new enemies to defeat, including the new dragon mentioned above.
As the series reaches its end, the folks at ChAIR have put together a nice little Infinity Blade tribute trailer that takes a look back at the trilogy.
If you’re a fan of the series, watch the video closely as ChAIR says it contains glimpses of upcoming new content sprinkled throughout.
Also, ChAIR will be sharing more details soon as they’ll be “looking for ways to expand the Infinity Blade universe further”.
An iOS exclusive and the closest thing to a so-called system seller, the Infinity Blade series taps Epic Games’ powerful Unreal Engine to deliver console-quality graphics on the iOS platform.
Apple would typically invite Epic to share details of upcoming Infinity Blade games at its media events. For example, Infinity Blade 3 was unveiled at the double-iPhone launch in September of last year.
Given that the rumored September 9 iPhone 6 launch is now less than two weeks away, and with the Infinity Blade trilogy concluding five days earlier, my gut feeling is telling me that a brand new ChAIR game will be demoed during the iPhone 6 unveiling.
It will be powered by the latest Unreal Engine 4 and show off the processing and graphics power of the handset, methinks.
Folks attending PAX Prime will have a chance to play the new ‘Kingdom Come’ content early as ChAIR will be demoing the update at the Epic Games booth #7505 on the sixth floor from Friday, August 29 through Monday, September 1.
“The first 100 players each day will get an exclusive PAX Prime t-shirt,” the team teased. “We’ll also have temporary tattoos and some other surprises.”
Infinity Blade III is $6.99 in the App Store.
The massive 1.82-gigabyte download runs on any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad supported by iOS 6.0 or later. It’s a resource-intensive game so best thing you play it on A7 devices like the iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display.
