G4TV’s X-Play recently had Visceral Games’ Executive Producer, Jonathan Knight, to show give a hands-on preview for Dante’s Inferno.
Dante’s Inferno is based on the first part of Dante’s Divine Comedy. Players play as Dante who journeys through the nine circles of hell in order to free his beloved Beatrice’s soul from Lucifer
Judging by the preview, it looks like Dante’s Inferno is going to appeal to God Of War fans as the gameplay is very similar. One difference is Dante’s Inferno has somewhat of an RPG element to it as during gameplay, through the players decisions, Dante can either go towards the holy or unholy path depending on his actions. These decisions give Dante experience points that can then be used to upgrade his abilities.
Hit the jump for part two of the preview where the City of Dis is revealed.
