Just one day after Chair's Donald Mustard promised an Infinity Blade update "very, very soon," Epic has launched the update, entitled "The Deathless Kings." The free update packs in a new "Dungeon" environment, six more arenas, ten new enemies (including the Deathless Kings, of course), thirty new items and new achievements. It should go live on the App Store today.

The update also includes a "New Game Plus" feature that "allows gamers to re-master any item, unlock new items in the store, and removes the level cap." Finally, the update also adds extra character slots, audio volume controls and the ability to adjust the size of the dodge button.

To coincide with the update, Epic has reduced Infinity Blade's price to $3 -- half off -- through Sunday, March 6.
