Dante's Inferno Trials of St. Lucia DLC Gameplay »

Two months after Dante’s Inferno took gamers through the epic poem (with more than a dash of creative license), EA's hit gets its second playable character in The Trials of St. Lucia expansion. Typically portrayed in religious iconography as a young woman holding her detached eyeballs on a platter, Lucia is one of three blessed women who guide Dante throughout the original epic poem in this new co-op content (priced at 800 Microsoft Points, or $9.99).

In Visceral Games’ version, St. Lucia uses her sightless sockets to shoot beams at her enemies. Other than this, and the ability to glide for long distances, her style is almost identical to Dante’s -- right down to the lady-sized scythe. She’s a bit quicker and more agile than the knight, but for these gains she must sacrifice.  The Patron Saint of Lasers can’t deal as much damage: her eyes pack the punch of a rogue paddleball. The ability to fly around the battlefield adds a new element of strategy, and a swooping attack from the air makes you feel Lucia's delicious combination of grace and power. She’s a captivating religious figure and a stylish game character, but she may not differentiate herself enough from Dante for everyone's taste.
