Dante’s Inferno Demo (PSN) and Comic Book Mini-Series available now

DC Comics have been strengthening their presence in the video game world year after year as they begin to hit their stride in 2009.  Firstly we’ve got the potential Game of the Year with Batman: Arkham Asylum, while secondly Jim Lee continues to contribute to the upcoming Sony exclusive MMO DC Universe Online.  Now the studio that Jim Lee created in Wildstorm Productions, also part of DC comics, brings us  a new mini-series based on the upcoming EA title Dante’s Inferno.  With the PSN demo also available today, players can now get the first  of six comic issues to delve deeper into the 9 circles of hell.  Sean C.

DC Comics/WildStorm Productions and Electronic Arts will take comic book fans and gamers alike on a journey through the gates of Hell, with the release of the first issue in the six-issue comic miniseries, Dante’s Inferno, available now at comic book stores and retailers. Written by esteemed comic book writer Christo Gage (X-Men/Spider-Man, Wildcats) and featuring the highly stylized artwork of Diego Latorre (The Incredible Hulk). The first issue of the comic book portrays the murder of Dante’s beloved Beatrice, and his descent to hell to reclaim her soul

Created by Visceral Games, Dante’s Inferno is set in Dante Alighieri’s vividly imagined nine circles of hell – limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, violence, heresy, fraud and treachery. Players take Dante on an epic descent through hell, battling their way through a terrifying gauntlet of demons to reclaim the soul of his beloved Beatrice. The Dante’s Inferno comic will highlight the action-packed moments in the game, and will also deliver more perspective on Beatrice’s experience, adding more depth to the game’s story and exploring more of the poem’s dramatic depiction of the underworld.

“We’ve been incredibly lucky to get the talented artists of WildStorm to contribute their inspired craft to the Dante’s Inferno epic,” says Dante’s Inferno senior producer, Justin Lambros. “The vivid artwork from Diego Latorre just screams out of the page, and Christo Gage’s thoughtful words breathe life and give soul to Dante and Beatrice.  We can’t wait to see what gamers think of the comic, and we think comic fans will love the game once it hits stores on February 9.”
