Infinity Blade goes free for Black Friday week

Even though it's now three years old, if you're looking for a great game to play on your iPhone or iPad then the original Infinity Blade title is still well worth a look. Better still, the game is now free to download for a limited time in honor of Black Friday week.

For untold ages, the God King has ruled with an iron fist - his power is incalculable; his followers, legion. Now you must journey to the Dark Citadel to battle his Titans, one by one, until you face the tyrant himself. As it has been for all in your bloodline, this is your birthright - to free your people from an endless legacy of darkness. The immortal can be vanquished - but only if heart, mind, and steel are one.

Powered by the Unreal Engine 3 Infinity Blade is a mixture of stunning graphics and RPG style gameplay with a battle control system based on gestures, perfect for the touchscreen. And, since it's actually an old title, Infinity Blade will run on all current hardware, and will also work as far back as the iPhone 3GS, first generation iPad and 3rd generation iPod touch.

Infinity Blade was an incredible title back then, and it's no less so now. It certainly has stood the test of time. Grab it for free now at the App Store link below, and see where it all began.

I've been waiting for the Infinity Blade series to become free for such a long time. Seems like now is my chance. ;) Oh well, even if it's not the second or third installment in the series.

Woohoo! Wait... I've already got IB.
Seriously, though, I do look forward to this time if year because of great deals like this. If you haven't tried an Infinity Blade game before, this is tough to beat (no pun intended).

it's Thanksgiving week, not "black friday week". calling it black friday week cheapens the reason for the real holiday by turning it into some sort of calorie deposit for friday.

Spend time with your family, not shopping.

Black Thursday you mean?

Ease off. Many of the writers are Canadian. Don't assume the world is from the US. There are many more populations celebrating a Black Friday than a Thanksgiving.
Plus giving a game for free seems to be a lot more related to Black Friday. The thought of the gift of murder seems a bit odd for Thanksgiving IMO.

Thanks for the tip. I've been reluctant to try big games because of the time they take, but if I can try it for free, I'll take the chance.

Love the series! I got my hands on Infinity blade II last year and I've been itching to get the 3rd one seeing as I have a 5S, the graphics would be outstanding. But seeing as the first in the series is free for Black Friday, hey I'm gonna take advantage of this and get the whole story!

These games look great but I find them quite boring. Same game play over and over. I bought them mostly to show off the graphic capabilities of my ios devices.

Can we get some love on Windows Phone? I love this game, we have the processing power so whats taking so long?

ScottSouder says:

Hell yeah. Thanks for pointing this out. I've been wanting to try this game for a while now. How can anyone pass on it when it's free?

I think they're enjoyable, thought I haven't purchased III as of yet, I play I & II on my iPad and they're fun time wasters. I'm more into InJustice though which, to me, has very similiar gameplay.

iDisturbia says:

This and many other games should've been FREE since day 1.

Look at it this way. Can you play this game to its fullest without those so-called in-app purchases??? Hell, no!

acondax says:

It's a cool game just very repetitive. However I still managed to get hooked on it for over a week. Can't beat the deal of free!

Glad they've finally made one of the infinity blade games free! I love the series because the graphics are really amazing. This is one of the games that can truly show off the potential of the new iOS devices. Even though this game is quite old it's still really nice to be able to get it for free.

Can't understand the hype about infinity blade games. There are much better games out there. Can't argue about the graphics though. And they should at least make IF II free, now that III is out ;/
