Alighieri's Epic Poem to Become an Action Game

| | Comments (0)
Electronic ArtsElectronic Arts is planning to release a third-person action game based on the 14th century epic poem, The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. The game will be called Dante's Inferno and is being developed by the same group at EA Redwood Shores that developed Dead Space. Based on the title (and the fact that the "Paradiso" portion of The Divine Comedy probably doesn't require a "dismemberment engine"), it sounds like the game will only explore the nine circles of hell and will restrict its exploration of the poem's elements to those that can be killed or hacked apart.
Lets hope that if EA plans to use Dante's Inferno to compete with Sony's God of War franchise, players don't have to quickly match button presses to compose cantos.
