1960's bikers 'Ride to Hell'

Unfortunately, we got overzealous hoping that this was a videogame adaptation of Dante's Divine Comedy. While that's certainly not it, the game is, in fact, a title all about 1960's hog riders living the life of sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. Uh, we were pretty close ... somehow. Anyway, titled Ride to Hell, this Deep Silver-published game allows players to "immerse themselves in the liberty and freedom of riding full throttle with their gang on a multitude of different vehicles through the dusty flats of Western America."

The game is all about recreating "original West Coast biker culture" -- leather, ass-less chaps, and all. Protecting turf, machines, bros, and their hos from rival gangs is at the core of this game. It sounds all rather GTA-ish, but with a distinct biker flavor to it. We're interested to see more. The game is being developed for "next-gen consoles" and PC; expect to see it sometime mid 2009.
