The Infinity Blade Is Now Available In Fortnite After The Trilogy Was Removed From The App Store
Epic Games recently removed the Infinity Blade series from the App Store. While the trilogy is removed, it looks like a part of it is incarnated into Fornite. That's right, the titular blade from the mobile game lives on. In the first patch for Fortnite Battle Royale's season seven, Epic Games has brought a number of changes forward which includes the new limited time game mode, close encounters and more. The primary focus of the update revolves around the Infinity Blade. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.
Fortnite's Latest Patch Brings Infinity Blade To The Platform
Epic Games has introduced the Infinity Blade in Fortnite, a new weapon which can only be found at the top of the brand new location, the Polar Peak. The weapon gives you a strategic choice. Once you pick up the two-handed weapon, its the only one that you can use. The melee weapon will force the rest of your inventory items to drop to the ground, aside from your building items.
What's interesting is that the Infinity Blade will only appear in a single instance of a battle royale match. If the player is eliminated, the Infinity Blade will drop to the ground so other players can pick it up if they desire. Here are more details on the weapon.
- This Mythic melee weapon can be found on Polar Peak.
- Primary Fire delivers a powerful sword slash. It deals big damage to enemies and destroys structures in one blow (75 damage to players).
- Alternate Fire allows the player to leap great distances, destroying objects in its path. Upon landing, it delivers damage and a knock-up to nearby players (25 damage).
- The wielder of the sword is also granted additional abilities:
- An increased pool of max Health and Shields (200 Health/200 Shields).
- Regeneration of effective Health over time up to max Health and Shields (1 HP per second).
- An instant burst of effective Health upon elimination of an enemy (50 HP).
- Increased movement speed (130%).
- The first player to pull the Infinity Blade from its pedestal will be instantly healed to full Health and Shields.
- If a player picks up the Infinity Blade, all other inventory items aside from building materials will be dropped.
- When the wielder of the Infinity Blade picks up an item (aside from building materials), the Infinity Blade will be dropped.
- The Infinity Blade will be dropped when the wielder is knocked out or eliminated.
- Only one Infinity Blade will appear per match.
The first season 7 patch brings the version number to v7.01 and it is available for all platforms including iOS. Epic Games has also introduced a bevy of new features in Fortnite, so do check them out as well. There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details.
