First real details have surfaced on EA Redwood Studio’s multi-platform third-person action title, Dante’s Inferno.

Dante Alighieri’s adventures through the nine circles of Hell will be a mixture of God of War meets Dead Space, according to a PSM3 article, with the protagonist facing off against crosses spewing lava, demons and other nasty denizens as he searches for his lady love Beatrice.

Quick time events, such as climbing a 20-foot monster to battle its demon rider over control of the beast, should be familiar to any one who has played any of Kratos’s adventures, and even combo controls will be reminiscent of the Spartan’s lauded control scheme.

PSM3 has a 10-page spread on the game in the latest issue, and in case you have not seen the teaser trailer, head on over to CVG, and check it out.

Thanks, Blerk.

    “Dante’s Inferno is “God of War meets Dead Space””

    It’s as true of the game as it was of the original Epic Poem!

    [sigh]
    God of War won’t be beaten at being God of War, because it IS God of War. Stop trying.

    Oh I dunno… THQ’s Conan game was a very enjoyable GoW clone. I like that style of game – moar plaez.

    I am excited about seeing it (GoWIII), as I am excited about seeing any next gen sequel of a previous gen title.

    But EA have been fantastic, and if they can continue in this economic climate, I commend them for doing so.

    Pat, were you invited to a GoWIII showing today?

    And completely seperately, or vaguely related, but in this case benign, does VG247 have a Twitter?
