Visceral Games Announces Free Downloadable Demo Available on PSN December 10th and on Xbox Live December 24th
December is about to heat up! Electronic Arts Inc. today announced that the playable demo for Dante’s Inferno™ will be available as a free download on PlayStation Network on December 10 and on Xbox Live on December 24. Dante’s Inferno
takes gamers on a quest through hell, in an action-packed adaptation of
part one of Dante Alighieri’s epic poem, The Divine Comedy. The ‘Gates
of Hell’ demo includes the entire opening level and gives gamers a
taste of the terrifying odyssey to come in the Nine Circles of Hell as
depicted in the full game.
In the demo of Dante’s Inferno, players are
introduced to Dante Alighieri’s re-imagined past as a crusader who
returns home to Florence to discover his true love, Beatrice, murdered.
As her soul escapes her body, she is kidnapped by the dark shadow form
of Lucifer. Sworn to her rescue, Dante must journey to the Gates of
Hell and beyond to battle undead monstrosities, unholy boss demons, and
Death himself. Offering a glimpse into the vast world of Dante’s Inferno, the demo serves as a prelude to the player’s perilous journey to the inner bowels of hell.
“The world of Alighieri’s ‘Dante’s Inferno’ is such a rich, detailed,
and often alarming universe, that all of us at Visceral Games put our
hearts, and dare I say souls, into creating something truly intense and
exciting,” said executive producer Jonathan Knight. “We hope gamers
enjoy this tease of hell, and come away from the experience lusting for
more when the game comes out on February 9.”
Developed by Visceral Games, the award-winning developers behind the critically-acclaimed Dead Space™ franchise, Dante’s Inferno
is an epic descent through Dante Alighieri’s nine circles of hell –
limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and
treachery. At a blazing-fast 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
Gamers will get to go to hell in North America beginning February 9,
2010 and in Europe on February 12, 2010 for PlayStation3 computer
entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment
