COMIC PREVIEW

Table of Contents

Inspired by the real Dante Alighieri, but adapted for a new generation and a new medium, the hero of the game is a soldier who defies death and fights for love against impossible odds. The Italian mercenary Dante returns home from the wars to find that his beloved Beatrice has been murdered, and her soul pulled down into Hell by a dark force. He gives chase, and vows to get her back. For weapons, he wields Death's soul-reaping scythe, and commands the holy powers of the cross, given to him by Beatrice.

About the Book

Dante’s Inferno is loosely based on the first part of Dante Alighieri’s well-known, influential literary work The Divine Comedy. Take control of Dante and guide him through the Nine Circles of Hell as he makes a desperate attempt to save his beloved, Beatrice, from the clutches of Lucifer.

In the Basics chapter you’ll find the most basic elements of Dante’s Inferno. Those familiar with The Inferno from The Divine Comedy will know the general structure of the game, but they’ll still need to learn all the basics of the gameplay engine and how Dante will survive the Nine Circles of Hell. This chapter covers all the basics, from attacking and defending to exploring the depths of Hell.

The Abilities section covers all of Dante’s Holy and Unholy abilities in great detail. We provide a breakdown of each ability and how cost-effective it is to unlock, and we recommend a specific path for unlocking them to make sure you have the best abilities when you need them most.

In the Relics section we take an in-depth look at every relic Dante encounters while he burrows deep into Hell. By the end of Dante’s long journey, he will have the ability to use several relics at a time; however, with a great number relics to choose from, knowing which relic to use with every enemy encounter becomes an extremely important strategic element.

The Magic chapter covers all of the magic spells Dante has access to throughout the game. Dante’s Mana is limited, meaning you must have proper knowledge of his magic spells if you wish to survive the onslaught of enemies encountered in the Nine Circles of Hell. Some magic spells work better in certain situations than others, and this chapter provides a detailed list of the positive and negative aspects of each spell.

Our Character chapter provides insightful information on every significant character in Dante’s Inferno. We cover everyone from Dante to Beatrice to Virgil to Lucifer. Knowing various gameplay techniques and strategies for the characters is important, but it’s always helpful to know the history behind the character you’re playing and the people you’ll encounter on your journey.

In the Bestiary chapter, we cover every enemy Dante encounters as he traverses the Nine Circles of Hell. Everything you need to know to Punish and Absolve the creatures of Hell is covered in this chapter. Learn how many hit points each enemy has, and discover their strengths and weaknesses as well as which attacks work best to take them down with ease.

Our Walkthrough chapters are the bulk of the strategy guide and provides a detailed walkthrough of the entire game. We include the locations of fountains, relics, and other various items and abilities; how to handle every enemy horde; and detailed boss strategies.

Our Achievements section details all of the Xbox 360® Achievements and PlayStation®3 Trophies and how to earn them as you progress through the game.

The Extra's chapter includes all of the hidden unlockables, an art gallery, and much more. Check this out when you’ve had enough fun dismembering the creatures of Hell.
