Dante’s Inferno lets players take control of Dante, a veteran of the Crusades as he chases his beloved Beatrice, while trying to free her soul from Lucifer. In doing so he goes through the 9 circles of the Inferno to get to Beatrice, fighting monsters, facing his sins, his past and war crimes along the way.
“The ‘Gates of Hell’ demo will introduce players to the game’s hero, epic story and intense action gameplay, tracing Dante’s battles from the surface all the way to the Gates of Hell.
“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.”
The Demo for Dante’s Inferno for the PS3 and Xbox 360 will be released in December. The full game will hit shelves on February 9th 2010 for North America and the 12th February 2010 for Europe for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PSP.
