Dante's Inferno Death Edition Details
What, another special edition? Get out of town...we never would have expected it.
Sarcasm aside, it seems the contents of the "Death Edition" for the upcoming Dante's Inferno have been located thanks to a listing for the game at a European branch of Amazon.com. According to the translation, in addition to the game, those who spring for this neato Collector's Edition will nab a few other interesting goodies: a Dead Space outfit for Dante (obviously a nod to the highly anticipated survival/horror sequel), the standard "Making Of" behind-the-scenes documentary, the relevant history surrounding the main character and Dante Alighieri's "The Divine Comedy," the soundtrack, an art book by Wayne Barlowe, a clip from the animated movie that goes along with the game, and oh yes, the complete epic poem in digital form. Technically, "The Divine Comedy" is an "epic poem" even though it's certainly novel length, and remember that "Inferno" is only one of three parts. The other two, Purgatorio and Paradiso, are not featured in the game (as far as we know). The retail cost should come in at $69.99 for the Death Edition here in the US but we'll have to wait for the finalized details before saying it's official.
Although it must compete with 2K's Bioshock 2 when it releases on February 9, Dante's Inferno at least comes out five weeks before God of War III, giving you more than enough time to buy and play both. Right?
