EA’s action game based on Dante’s Divine Comedy is just around the corner, so to give you some insight as to why people are so excited for it, check out this montage of gameplay footage to get an idea. It only gives us a glimpse of a few interesting ideas, and we only seem to be able to see the protagonist’s primary weapon, a skeletal scythe – but the footage does leave us with a taste for how the game will play. From what I can tell, it looks like it will feel not too dissimilar to God of War, maybe a bit smoother, with dodge mechanics not unlike the recently released Bayonetta. Looks like there will be a heavy focus on button-press events for those more cinematic big enemy and boss fights. All things considered, it will be interesting to see everything Dante’s Inferno has to offer, especially after Bayonetta was so well received.

Let's hope this turns out well, then the year will really have started off well.
