EA Games has released a teaser for the R18+ war game, “Dante’s Inferno“, a year before its release for XBox 360 and Playstation 3. The video shows an armor clad warrior taking on the nightmarish inhabitants and monsters of Hell, with the tag line, “Go To Hell”.
Dante’s Inferno is based on the fourteenth century Tuscan epic poem, The Divine Comedy (Commedia) in which Dante Alighieri travels through Inferno (Hell), Purgatorio (Purgatory), and Paradiso (Paradise). Dante and Virgil travel through the nine circles of hell, observing the residents who are beset with horrors befitting their particular vices, and grappling with symbolic beasts. A man who fears no death in the 9 circles learns quickly to fear his sins.
