In an inspiring attempt to try and take even more
gratuitous liberties with the works of Dante Alighieri, Visceral Games has announced a Europe-only special edition bundle
of its upcoming Hell-based action title, Dante's Inferno
. The "Death Edition" bundle comes with a copy of the poem, some making-of documentaries, and an art book. However, its greatest bonus is a new skin for the game's scythe-wielding protagonist: The slot-helmeted outfit of Dead Space's
hero, Isaac Clarke. Check out the full costume after the jump.
Now that we think of it, there's something pretty similar to this cross-promotion in the text of Dante's epic poem:
"I saw multitudes
to every side of me; their howls were loud
while, wheeling weights, they used their chests to push.
They struck against each other; at that point,
this space miner came in and killed them with this big scythe.
Needless to say, it was pretty [expletive deleted] radical.
