Details on Epic Games‘ upcoming title, Infinity Blade: Dungeons, have been nonexistent since its reveal at the new iPad announcement in March. However, Joystiq has posted this video showing some gameplay from the yet to be released title:
As you can see, this is nothing like the Infinity Blade we’re familiar with. Infinity Blade: Dungeons offers free player movement from a top-down perspective instead of the fixed battles and cutscene-only movement from the original titles. Like its name implies, this game is a dungeon crawler (Diablo III, anyone?). Attacks will probably be gesture based, as there are no on-screen controls. Aside from the new enemies, it appears as though upgrading your weapons will be done through a tap-based mini-game.
While this is definitely different that what we’re used to, I’m very excited about Infinity Blade: Dungeons. The game already looks amazing, and should actually look even better on the new iPad. If the controls work as well as they do on the original Infinity Blade titles, this game will have an immediate rise to the top of the App Store.
Unfortunately, there is still no word on a release date. As always, we’ll keep you posted. Until then, you’ll have this video to drool over. Will you be able to wait?
