Infinity Blade III ‘Soul Hunter’ update coming soon

The iOS-exclusive Infinity Blade III (a $6.99 download for the iPhone and iPad) arrived mid-September as the third installment to Chair Entertainment’s elegiac masterpiece, the Infinity Blade series.

The game is about to get its first free ‘hunter’ content pack and it’s going to be something really special. The Soul Hunter update features four new explore quest and a new main quest that you can play as Isa or Siris.

More importantly, it pits your character face to face against Oslim, the Deathless Bloodmage sent by the Worker of Secrets to track you down and kill you. Just to make things a little more interesting, Oslim is armed with not one, but two Infinity Blades. More on that below…

Infinity Blade III launches on the App Store

Infinity Blade has long been a so-called system seller, an iOS masterpiece meant to highlight the power of Apple’s iOS platform by taking the GPU inside your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad to its limits.

Developer Chair said in July that Infinity Blades: Dungeons had been canceled due to internal reshuffling that saw the company focus on the third installment in the series, Infinity Blade III.

Apple during its iPhone 5s/5c keynote last month invited representatives from Chair to demo the game on stage. In a quick follow-up, Chair then posted a trailer video and this morning the game surfaced on the App Store, ahead of the expected iOS 7 release later today…

New Infinity Blade III video posts ahead of next week’s release

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…

Infinity Blade III coming to iOS September 18 for $6.99

I’m not sure how it happened, but somewhere amidst all of the excitement yesterday, we completely neglected to talk about the new Infinity Blade game. For those who missed it, Apple brought Chair’s Donald Mustard up on stage during its iPhone event to introduce Infinity Blade III.

The move, of course, was to help Apple show off the power of the iPhone 5s’ new A7 processor, but it was a big moment for Infinity Blade fans as well. After the ‘Dungeons’ title was canceled, the future of the franchise was uncertain. But Chair put all those concerns to rest yesterday…

Following ‘Dungeons’ cancelation, new evidence suggests Infinity Blade 3 in the works

Following months of silence, Chair co-founder and Creative Director Donald Mustard announced last month that ‘Infinity Blades: Dungeons’ had been canceled. Rumors about the game had been bouncing around since it debuted onstage at Apple’s iPad 3 event.

But it doesn’t look like fans are going to have to mourn the title’s demise for very long. According to a Senior QA Tester’s LinkedIn profile, Infinity Blade-creator Chair looks to be in the middle of either development or beta testing a sequel to the popular game…

Infinity Blade Dungeons game officially canceled

Last March, Epic Games president Mike Capps took the stage at Apple’s iPad 3 event to show off Infinity Blade Dungeons, the studio’s third iteration in the popular series. And true to its predecessors, the game looked stunning—especially on the iPad’s new Retina display.

At first sight, Dungeons had the makings of a hit. But then came the disappointment. After several months of silence, Epic announced last fall that the game would be delayed until 2013. Then it was put on hold. And now it sounds like the whole thing’s been scrubbed…

Infinity Blade goes free for a limited time

Infinity Blade is arguably one of the most popular gaming franchises on iOS (aside from Angry Birds and maybe Real Racing). First released in 2010 by Chair Entertainment and Epic Games, the action role player pulled in some $1.6 million in its first four days.

The game was popular enough to spawn at least one sequel, Infinity Blade 2, and possibly a third. Still don’t get what all of the hype is about? Well now’s your chance to investigate, because the title that started it all was just discounted to $0 for a limited time…

New game lets you fight presidential candidates Infinity Blade-style

We’re in the middle of an election year here in the US, and come November, we will have a new President. But until then, we will be forced to endure countless hours of debates, political TV ads and who knows what else.

Luckily, the folks over at Chair — the team behind the popular Infinity Blade franchise — just released a game to help us cope with all of the stress of the election. It’s called VOTE!!!, and it’s actually pretty fun…

Infinity Blade is Epic’s most lucrative game ever

According to Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney, the iOS-exclusive Infinity Blade series is his company’s most profitable game ever. And for the sake of meme completeness, Infinity Blade is more profitable than Epic Games’ Gears of War, a lucrative military sci-fi shooter franchise for the Xbox and Windows platforms. Which is saying a lot considering Gears of War cost $10 million to develop…
