Free Infinity Blade Update Adds Multiplayer! (SCREENS)
Holy crap awesome — Infinity Blade‘s latest update, which dropped today, finally adds the game’s long-awaited player vs. player mode to the mix.
The mode pits two players against one another in the game’s sword-fighting construction. One player takes on the role of the Knight, the main player character through the course of the single-player campaign, while the other plays one of the enemy Titans. Controlling the Knight is the same as when playing through the story, but with the Titans, players can control their attack speed to try to slip a strike past their opponents’ defenses.
Wins are best of seven bouts, and tracked on the game’s leaderboards through Apple’s Game Center service. The update also includes more weapons and armor to collect, and a single-player Survival mode. Developer ChAIR Entertainment also has put the game on sale: it’s $2.99 for a limited time in the iTunes App Store, both on the iPhone and the iPad.
ChAIR has been paying fans serious service with Infinity Blade. The last update that came down the pipe brought about double the single-player content to the game. If you haven’t purchased Infinity Blade, you really, really, really should — ChAIR has built it into one of the most quality experiences on Apple’s platform.
