When Electronic Arts first introduced the world to Dante's Inferno, literary aficionados wept. How often have literary masterpieces failed as video game adaptations? Beowulf, anyone? Then came the announcement that Dante's Inferno would be a hybrid of God of War and Dead Space, which certainly added a bit of "let's see where this goes" to some of the doubters.
It goes without saying that Dead Space is a great new IP in the library of titles on offer from EA. However, fans of God of War have to be skeptical considering the franchise's success and history.
Today, Eurogamer revealed four new in-game images of Dante's Inferno which are pleasing, yet disappointing. They're pleasing because you can tell God of War was truly an inspiration to the development team. However, it's disappointing that it looks as though God of War I and II were that inspiration, not God of War III. It's not quite evident yet if the visuals will live up to this generation's standard or not.
We've included the images below, but you can check them out in larger dimensions in our Dante's Inferno image gallery.
