Chair Entertainment and Epic Games' impressively rendered action-RPG will hack and slash its way onto iOS devices sooner than you think. Set in a medieval castle similar to that of Epic’s beautiful, playable tech demo, Epic Citadel, Infinity Blade will cast players as a knight in shining armor who must traverse a monster-infested castle in order to reach and ultimately defeat the evil “God King” this December 9th.
- Chair has a great pedigree for downloadable games -
Featuring an active battle system that requires timing and precise “slashing” through touch screen swipes, Infinity Blade resembles a fighting game. As players defeat enemies, they earn experience that can be used to purchase armor, weapons, and new abilities. Equipment will alter your character’s appearance, and it appears that additional equipment and items can be retrieved from scattered treasure chests.
The enemies are impressively large with detailed textures and animations, and the environments are realistically rendered with moving foliage and water effects. The game offers a large scope and, as a whole, looks to be the best looking game available on any handheld gaming device.
Although little is known on the amount of content or types of gameplay Infinity Blade will offer, Epic has confirmed that a fully integrated, online multiplayer mode via Game Center will be released as a free update soon after the game’s initial release.
- Massive confrontations will put your skills to the test -
Infinity Blade is undoubtedly an impressive game that aims to be the next big app to show off to all of your friends, RPG fans or not. Check back for our review this December 9th.
