Dante's Inferno: "The WHOLE Thing"
Posted: Wednesday November 11th, 2009 by

The next installment in the Dante's Inferno series of video games is to be based on the first part of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy. Searching for his lost love, Dante -a soldier- stomps boldly into the depths of Hell to retrieve her. Wielding Death's scythe and holy powers given to him by Beatrice, his lost love, Dante faces all that the underworld tosses his way.

Dante's Divine Comedy is nearly 700 years old now and yet it still remains one of the most influential/well-known works ever produced. It's majestic. Epic. Everything we could want out of our video games. Yet somehow it seemed appropriate to downplay its significance. The game is scheduled to release early next year. I really hope Visceral Games does Alighieri's masterpiece justice.

With the recent revelation that you earn a "Bad Nanny" achievement for killing unbaptized babies though [more info]... I have my concerns.
