Blade Masters Stalk the Halls in this New Infinity Blade III Update, and Cut up the Price

Posted by on May 22nd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Infinity Blade III has received still one more massive content update (they’re up to what, like 3 now?). This one is called “Blade Masters” and features – you guessed it – a couple of nasty new Deathless to deal with.

The Collector is a connoisseur of weapons who travels the world in search of the best. If you can defeat him you’ll earn a rare weapon, but fail and he’ll take yours from you! Ryth (from the second game) also makes a return and has something of an axe to grind. No pun intended.

In addition to the new baddies, Solar Trans weapons (kind of like lightsabers that are powerd by the sun) are also making a comeback, and now you can explore an entirely new path through the stronghold at Larioth using Isa. Of course there are even more goodies in this update, but I don’t want to spoil everything, do I? On top of all that, they’ve also reduced the price for a limited time.

You can download Infinity Blade III now for $2.99, with the Blade Masters update available for free to those who already own the game.
