Dante's Inferno, A Game of Interest and of Controversy

The recent controversy about the handling of Electronic Arts of the marketing for Dante's Inferno had both sparked outrage and interest in their next big game title. Dante’s Inferno is based on the 1st book in Dante Alighieri’s trilogy "The Divine Comedy." It is an epic poem about Dante’s travels through the three stages of the afterlife, guided by poet Virgil.

In the first book, The Inferno, Virgil guides Dante through 9 rings of hell. Each ring houses different class of sinners. As you get deeper their crimes get worse. The trailer for the game breifly outlined each of the 9 rings and showed short clips of each ring. It appears as though you will be playing as some sort of crusader that is traveling through the rings.
