First Infinity Blade DLC detailed

New weapons, enemies due next week.

The first in a series of free DLC packs for hit iOS slash 'em up Infinity Blade has just been revealed.

According to Joystiq, an update due next week will add five new weapons, five new shields, five helmets and an armour set. The level cap will go up to 45 and there will be a new enemy to face off against: the Marrow Fiend, pictured below.

And there's much more planned for further down the line. "There will be new areas to go to, the story will be evolving a little more as you see what the God King is really up to, and we're going to let people go down into the dungeons," Donald Mustard, creative director of developer Chair Entertainment, explained.

"For high-level players especially, you'll start to find some enemies that make the [current] enemies look like nothing."

Sounds good to us - the Unreal Engine-fueled mini-blockbuster scored a razor sharp 8/10 earlier this week.
