At its GamesCom 2009 press conference moments ago, Electronic Arts announced that Dante's Inferno will be released on February 9, 2010. The PlayStation 3, Xbox and PC game adapts Dante Alighieri's epic-poem The Divine Comedy into an ass-kicking action game, although, it leaves out the endless chapters about how awesome heaven is and how boring purgatory is.
In Dante's Inferno, players assume the role of Dante as he travels through nine circles of Hell -- limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery -- to reclaim the soul of his beloved Beatrice. According to EA, Dante's Inferno features a "fully customizable combat system with holy and unholy choices, innovative level design, imaginative puzzles, and best-in-class boss battles, all running at 60 frames per second."
What do you think about Dante's Inferno? Are you looking forward to it, or are you thinking that if you wanted to play God of War, you'd play God of War?
