ChAIR and Epic Games recently confirmed the release date for one of the highly anticipated iOS action-RPG sword fighting adventure game. The game will be available worldwide on Thursday, December 09. Infinity Blade will be priced at $5.99 and will be a universal app which will allow you to install the app on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4th gen, 3rd gen and Apple iPad.
The developers have promised graphically intense game environment with “adrenaline-fueled sword battles and epic boss fights set in the realm of a fully 3D castle.” It would be interesting to see how well the controls work as the combat interface is gesture based. If you’ve played Samurai II Vengeance you would remember that the original game also featured swipe based controls but the sequel featured a more traditional D-pad which to a certain extent provided more robust and accurate controls. So, we will definitely love to see how well the developers have implemented the control mechanism.
In Infinity Blade (previously known as Project Sword) you are a knight and you engage your enemies in battle while gaining experience and unlocking various items to better equip yourself.
It’s great to know that the developers are already talking about planned updates which will include integrated multiplayer mode featuring online battles via Game Center.
I have been playing Hero of Sparta II recently and am hoping to complete the game on time before Infinity Blade’s release to see if the game lives up to all the hype and anticipation.
