Dante's Inferno Escapes Hell to the Safety of Games with Gold
Abandon hope all ye who download this game.
EA's gore-filled take on Virgil's classical epic poem, The Divine Comedy, is one of the next games set to be released for free as a part of Microsoft's Games with Gold program. In Dante's Inferno, players take on the role of tortured Crusader Dante, who must navigate through all Nine Circles of Hell to rescue his lover from the Devil himself.
Dante's Inferno is a third-person hack-and-slash game in similar vein to such titles as God of War or Devil May Cry. While not a strictly horror game, its themes, subject matter, and setting provide more than its fair share of horrific surprises along the way.
An abducted soul. A lifetime of sins. A journey to the depths of despair. Based on the immensely influential classic poem, Dante's Inferno takes you on an epic quest of vengeance and redemption through the Nine Circles of Hell. You are Dante, a veteran of the Crusades who must chase his beloved Beatrice and try to free her soul from Lucifer's grasp. As your pursuit takes you deeper into the pits of Hell, you must battle ever more fierce and hideous monsters - while also facing your own sins, a dark family past, and your unforgivable war crimes.
Dante's Inferno will be available for free to all Xbox Live Gold members starting on November 16th. Are you willing to go through Hell to save your beloved Beatrice?
