Dante's Inferno

 

Loosely based on the medieval poem "The Divine Comedy" by Dante Alighieri. The dark fiction gave birth to the Tuscan Italian dialect and is widely considered to have defined the western world’s contemporary conception of hell and purgatory. The poem tells the tale of Dante who journeys through the twisted, menacing nine circles of hell in pursuit of his beloved Beatrice.

Written in the 14th Century, "The Divine Comedy" was published and read aloud in Italian (unlike the Bible), thereby making the poem accessible to the mass public. The poem delivers a striking and allegorical vision of what some people perceive to be the afterlife and the punishments of hell. In part one, known as Dante’s Inferno, Dante traverses all nine circles of hell; limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, wrath, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery.
  • Story: An original adaptation of the epic Italian poem (The Divine Comedy a.k.a. “Dante’s Inferno”), that casts the player as Dante - a crusade veteran -who journeys through the Nine Circles of Hell to save his beloved Beatrice. In the process, Dante must face and defeat the sins of his past, and reckon his choices. A world-class script written by Academy Award™ nominee in conjunction with the game team.
  • Scythe Combat: Using Death’s Scythe as his primary weapon, Dante becomes a master of brutal melee combat, to fend off the monsters and minions of Hell, and earn their souls by killing them. Spend the souls on tons of upgrades and special combos, to augment the variety and power of the combat system.
  • Holy Powers: Using a cross given to him by Beatrice, Dante has additional moves for added combat variety and complexity. The cross is also used to either Absolve or Punish the damned shades encountered by Dante.
  • Magic of the Inferno: Dante acquires the powers of Hell through the defeat of certain monsters, and can turn these powers back against the creatures of Hell.
  • Creature Taming: Tame, ride and control giant monsters of Hell, using them to conquer enemies, solve puzzles, and make epic leaps forward into the bowels of the Inferno.
  • The Nine Circles of Hell: Each of the nine circles brought to life, as envisioned by the original poem, with a unique art style per level, and a variety of minions, demons, sub-bosses, and bosses themed for each level. Creature design by award-winning world-renown artist Wayne Barlowe.
  • 60Hz: Enjoy the fast-paced fighting of “Dante’s Inferno” at a solid, consistent 60 frames per second.
