Infinity Blade has made quite a splash in the iOS community, and it appears Epic is ready to keep the hype going with a couple updates set to make the action RPG even harder to put down. The company has announced details on two different updates for the game, one of which will be available next week.

First up is a new booster pack which will feature five new shields and helmets, as well as a brand new armor set. Also, the game will be raising the level cap to 45, making your fights against the God King and his minions at least a little bit easier. On top of all that, the game will add a brand new foe, the Marrow Fiend, who would love nothing more than to cut off your head and display it in his trophy room of horrors.

The more substantive update is planned to arrive early next year, and it sounds quite impressive indeed. The title update will feature more story and some nasty high-level foes. As Chair boss Donald Mustard puts it, “There will be new areas to go to, the story will be evolving a little more as you see what the God King is really up to, and we’re going to let people go down into the dungeons. For high-level players especially, you’ll start to find some enemies that make the [current] enemies look like nothing.”

Next year’s update will also add the much-discussed multiplayer mode, which we’re very excited about. Unfortunately, Chair isn’t providing any details on what they have planned quite yet, so we’re going to be in the dark about specifics for at least a little while longer.

All this news of awesome free updates makes our hearts sing. Infinity Blade is already a very entertaining game, and the addition of all this new content is only going to make a good thing even better. This is a game whose popularity grows by the day, and with updates like these it doesn’t seem like we’re going to stop talking about it anytime soon. That, of course, is a good thing.
