Visceral Games, the award-winning developers, already maker of the critically-acclaimed "Dead Space", has today announced that a demo for Dante’s Inferno, the most expected game for 2010, will come this December, for players to start live the real hell. The "Gates of Hell" demo includes the entire opening level, giving gamers a taste of Visceral Games’ blockbuster adaptation of Dante Alighieri’s epic poem, "The Divine Comedy".
In the demo, players will be introduced to the hero, the epic story and the intense action gameplay, tracing Dante’s battles from the surface all the way to the Gates of Hell. You’ll be able to experience fast-paced hack-n-slash combat, fending off waves of enemies before taking on the ultimate battle against Death. When you manage to defeat the demo’s 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.
“Our main goal from the start of this project has been to create a journey that will make gamers truly feel like they are going through hell,” said executive producer Jonathan Knight. “The demo will give everyone some insight into how we are treating the story and a taste of the gameplay. And with nine more circles of hell to explore once the game comes out in February, we are literally just scratching the surface.”
EA’s "Dante’s Inferno" will see Dante Alighieri descent through the nine circles of hell – limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery. The game will be displayed at a blazing-fast 60 frames per second, and each circle will feature unique environments, all new creatures, terrifying demons, story elements, all of which are scored distinctly to set a tone that fits each circle of sinners.
