VGA: EA’s Dante’s Inferno Announced (Video)
*Update: We now have the video, check it out after the jump.*
Sunday night at Spike TV’s annual Video Game Awards, actress/model Kim Kardashian tried her hardest to introduce a long rumored game. That game was EA’s Dante’s Inferno based on the 1st book in Dante Alighieri’s trilogy “The Divine Comedy.” It is an epic poem about Dante’s travels through the three stages of the afterlife, guided by poet Virgil.
In the first book, The Inferno, Virgil guides Dante through 9 rings of hell. Each ring houses different class of sinners. As you get deeper their crimes get worse. The trailer for the game breifly outlined each of the 9 rings and showed short clips of each ring. It appears as though you will be playing as some sort of crusader that is traveling through the rings. Being that it is an incredible story you can bet that the game will already have an incredible story line. If you haven’t already read Dante’s Divine Comedy, grab a copy (we won’t tell anyone) it’s a great story.
