Infinity Blade III hits App Store hours before iOS 7 debut

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Developer Chair Entertainment on Wednesday released the third installment of its massively popular Infinity Blade series which made a surprise appearance at Apple's iPhone event last week.

Infinity Blade III


Infinity Blade III brings back the intuitive swipe and touch controls pioneered in the first game, adding new features like enhanced graphics and new multiplayer modes.

The third Infinity Blade brings the story of characters Siris and Isa to a close, tossing in new quests and side missions to add depth to the plot. Both characters are playable, with each having three unique combat styles and "hundreds" of weapons to choose from.

Chair first showed off its latest game last week at Apple's iPhone unveiling, saying at the time that the title was developed to take advantage of the new 64-bit A7 processor found in the iPhone 5s. Rumors in August pointed to the game's ongoing development, but the announcement that the title would be released on Wednesday was somewhat of a surprise.

infinity Blade III comes in at 1.47GB and can be purchased from the iOS App Store for $6.99.

This game is going to rock ! Were the previous games binaries as big as 1.47 GB ?

$6.99 is $7.00 out of the price range for droid dorks. So why would it be anywhere else?

android sucks, but not as much as the people who come here to defend it.

New for MS dorks - Microsoft sucks just as much as the losers that come to AI to defend it

Chair CEO, says he'll get his company to make it for Android once Google solves the platform piracy issues.

Problem, being someone's going to have a cracked version of the game put up on the web or another Android store.

It thereby beats the purpose of building such games that are costly to develop for Android :( .

Sad but true !

Okay, so where's iOS 7?

There are also touchscreen latency issues that Google said would be solved with Gingerbread, but still aren't.

post #14 of 44

Well, people are online in line (as I am).

My guess would also be 10 am Cupertino, as this seems to be their preferred time slot for 'announcements'.

Past history would say 9:45 a.m. +/- a few minutes.

It probably contains both 32 and 64 bit which is why it's so big, it may not actually use that much when installed.  Or will it?

AI should add an 'iOS 7 Countdown' article so we can start the appropriate thread there. I am really keen on testing this new iOS iteration!

It's the most recurring answer I get from searching the web. There is no official time given by Apple. For that, we only have history to rely on, which was around 10am pacific.

I do expect some criticism on iOS7 making the the iPad2 and iPhone4 to become sluggish, but personally that is to be expected. If there is newer software I usually buy the hardware for it as well. The fact that it runs on last years' hardware is great (even from the year before), it's free, but people really shouldn't moan about it. You want iOS7; buy the HW that they designed it for.

I am planning on upgrading my iPad3 but only after I made certain I can revert back to iOS6.

I would presume it will be available before they start sending out push-notifications, in order to reduce the hit on 'their' servers. Their in quotes, as we all know they distribute globally, through services like Akamai.

So if you want it asap, I'd check around 9.45...and keep checking.

OK, so I'll start 9.44 ...

I'm impressed that Apple upgraded the iPhone hardware and iOS to support Infinity Blade III.

Aww, I was hoping to get up this morning and find it had already been released. :(

 

Oh well.

 

Sorry to continue the OT discussion, btw.

I think that you will find that 95% of that is made up of game assets (audio/textures etc) and the rest is code.

So I got the Golden Master release of iOS 7 already installed on my iPhone 5 (I am part of the developer program).

That mean's this version of iOS 7 hitting the public today, wont be available for my phone right ?

If you're part of "the developer program", you should know the answer to that. ;)

Can't say for an iPhone 4, but my tests of iOS7 GM on an iPhone 4s and a 2nd Gen iPad have shown no slow down what so ever. Hard to say if there are 'snappier' ... but maybe 1wink.gif ... but certainly not slower.

You won't want to go back. 1smile.gif

I like all the apps that have been updated to do iOS7 justice. Jasmine is really clean and slick, TED as well. WeatherHD Pro is supposed to be updated, but frankly I don't see any changes to the UI. Flipboard looks cool as well.

I was hoping to be ahead of the pack by warning people not to expect to get the latest and greatest for free, and expecting 'everything is faster now - wow!'

That's a result of your "device" (android) not being capable enough to handle the more sophisticated apps ... sorry, better luck next time.

That is one area where the Google Play Store does a bit better than Apple's App Store. Finding the apps you might be interested in is easier with the better categorization.

I'm currently using a Nexus 4 with the latest software (4.3 Jellybean) as my main phone, and the touchscreen seems fine- until I compare it with something like an iPhone 5 (or any iOS device), at which point I realize that touchscreen responsiveness is still night and day. iOS seems to react perfectly to your actions, like butter, seamingly reading your mind.

mmmm... not sure you followed correctly there ... I was referring to the changes of the icons used everyday on the iPhone home screen and my slowness in learning the new look of a few common ones now changed in iOS7 such as Calendar and Photos. It was self deprecating humor that's all.

The point is still valid tho.

If I may ask, is that by choice, or mandatory (employer or something).
