Can someone help shed some light on the ending?

  1. Either this is a plot hole, or I'm confused. At the end of the game, Lucifer shows Dante that he actually died during the Crusades when he was stabbed in the back (literally). If this is true, then how was he able to journey home in the scenes at the start of the game? The only possible explanation I can think of is that the events that follow Dante's "death" are an "illusion" manifested by Lucifer and that the portion leading up to Dante's decent into Limbo is actually a portion of Hell itself. This would at least explain why Hell Minions were able to rise from the grave and giant flaming gorges consume the church (after the first save point). Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe I'm looking for an answer that the developers didn't even bother to write or maybe the "Dark Forest" DLC will shed some light. Any thoughts?

  1. The entire plot has been overshadowed by Lucifer's shlong.

  2. I'd agree with your assessment, Lenown, except that Lucifer very plainly tells Dante that he's already dead, and that no soul may leave Hell. This is a bit of a mystery. Though this is just a game.

  3. I'm curious now too. Specifically, how does he travel back home and ride a horse if he's already dead? The only explanation I can think of is that he did all of it while in "soul form". Hopefully the developers address this in the sequel.

  4. Well, if it goes by the poem, Dante was never dead. It was more like he was visiting Hell. The only way out of Hell is through purgatory which is where Dante is at the end. "I am neither living nor dead."

  8. Dante was dead the whole time. Think back to the beginning of the game, when Dante offers his soul to Charon for Beatrice's return. Charon tells him they already own his soul...why? Because he's already dead!
