Since its cryptic unveiling in December, EA's action title (very) loosely based on the Inferno portion of The Divine Comedy has had gamers and literature nerds alike intrigued. Recently, a more detailed trailer and a handful of concept art pieces have been released, and many people have been left scratching their heads.
