Promised late last year soon after the release of the original game for iPhone and iPad, Epic Games just confirmed the long-awaited update to Infinity Blade featuring multiplayer is coming out on Thursday, May 19. The free update, called Infinity Blade: Arena, will allow gamers to challenge each other online using Game Center assuming the role of Titan or Knight in the game. No word on automatic in-game match-making and battle requests yet, but we guess Chair Entertainment and Epic Games have gone all out to provide full Game Center support in the update.
The new Infinity Blade will also sport a Survivor mode to see how long users can last while fighting Titans, and Facebook integration to share screengrabs of avatars online. There’s more though: the developers have included “new helms for every season”, “more than two dozen new magic rings, swords, shields, and helmets for players to collect and master” as well as new achievements, new leaderboards and additional “surprises.”
