Unfortunately, we got overzealous hoping that this was a videogame adaptation of Dante's Divine Comedy
. While that's certainly not it, the game is, in fact, a title all about 1960's hog riders living the life of sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. Uh, we were pretty close ... somehow. Anyway, titled Ride to Hell
, this Deep Silver-published game allows players to "immerse themselves in the liberty and freedom of riding full throttle with their gang on a multitude of different vehicles through the dusty flats of Western America."
The game is all about recreating "original West Coast biker culture" -- leather, ass-less chaps, and all. Protecting turf, machines, bros, and their hos from rival gangs is at the core of this game. It sounds all rather GTA
-ish, but with a distinct biker flavor to it. We're interested to see more. The game is being developed for "next-gen consoles" and PC; expect to see it sometime mid 2009.
