Infinity Blade Update Tomorrow Lets You Buy Gold, Adds Santa

We were prepared for tomorrow's free update to iPhone/iPad/iTouch hit Infinity Blade. New armor, new helmets, new level cap. And what's this? Cash for gold?

In addition to all of the expected updates including that raise of the level cap from 40 to 45, Epic Games said today in a press release that they will be:

"Purchase Gold! Due to popular demand, we have added the ability to buy extra Gold via in-app purchase!"

Paying to get ahead... that's the way of the modern game. Enjoy the free update tomorrow, Infinity Blade fans. The creators promise more free updates in 2011.

UPDATE: No sooner did we post this than an image of the free update's new Santa Claus-inspired Holiday Helm popped into our inbox. The helm is too festive not to share.
