Electronic Arts and Visceral Games (the crew behind Dead Space) have announced that they’re releasing a demo to their highly anticipated game, Dante’s Inferno, which is due out this February, on the Ps3 and Xbox 360 this December!
Want to know what Dante’s Inferno is all about?
…players will experience fast-paced hack-n-slash combat as they fend off waves of enemies before taking on the ultimate battle against Death. After defeating this boss, Dante will be armed with Death’s scythe, a powerful holy cross, and will be ready to tear open the Gates of Hell. The demo also features two stunning cinematic movies made by Blur, the award-winning visual effects, animation and design studio.”
“Our main goal from the start of this project has been to create a journey that will make gamers truly feel like they are going through hell,” says executive producer Jonathan Knight. “The demo will give everyone some insight into how we are treating the story and a taste of the gameplay. And with nine more circles of hell to explore once the game comes out in February, we are literally just scratching the surface.”
Dante’s Inferno is a descent through Dante Alighieri’s nine circles of hell – limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery. At 60 frames per second, each circle features unique environments, all new creatures, terrifying demons, story elements and are scored distinctly to set a tone that fits each circle of sinners.
