Gameloft's Dungeon Hunter 3 came out late last year, giving players access to a huge role-playing arena combat game with no admission price. The game has 4 different classes, 16 arenas, and 5 difficulty levels. Of course, none of that stopped people from complaining about the in-app purchases. But the new update sweetens the deal with honest-to-goodness multiplayer.

The game was supposed to launch with multiplayer, but Gameloft couldn't get things together in time. Now you can still journey alone, but co-op multiplayer is available to help you along the way. If you're the more adversarial type, there are also deathmatch player vs. player battles going on. It's also a very pretty game, to say the least.

If you decide to jump in with the new update, be ready to spend a little coin to get up and running. The game can be a real grind if you don't spend any real money. Still, it's being offered for free if you don't mind a nearly 1GB game download.

    I paid $1 for DH1 and $2 for DH3. As fun as they were, I don't mind a $1 or $2 for IAP. Thanks for the heads up. I'm tackling this update now!

          ok got it in-app purchse

      Update: there are almost no purchases for $2, and none for $1, unless I missed it. Effectively they're aiming for that $5 price point that DH1&2 debuted at. It's a fun game so far, and I may splurge for some diamonds or cash, but I'm not convinced it's necessary. This is the closest Gameloft have gotten to a Diablo clone and it's worth playing some more.

    I've always got a chunk of respect for Gameloft's execution, but I can never get behind any of their games because they make it so hard to get anything done without IAPs.

      Exactly. Google really forgot about 1.7GB games when they limited us to just 16GB. I have two 32GB cards gathering dust and its frustrating.

    Whatever you do, DON'T SPEND REAL MONEY ON THIS GAME.
    Character and Progress always resets and you can't get it back.
    Do you know that song of Natalie Cole?
    " I know it's starting over again..."
    That's the OST of this game.
