Leaks don't just happen around E3. Today, it looks like EA preemptively revealed another game coming to backward compatibility soon. According to the EA Access website, Dante's Inferno will be joining the service in the next few months. Considering that the game is an Xbox 360 experience, it'll become backward compatible then too.

Aside from announcing Dante's Inferno for EA Access, the company revealed that Burnout Paradise Remastered, Fe, FIFA 18, and The Sims 4 would join The Vault. The Vault gives you subscribers unlimited access to a collection of games as part of their EA Access membership.

Dante's Inferno is a 2010 action video game developed by the now-closed Visceral Games. Based on the immensely influential classic poem, Dante's Inferno takes you on an epic quest of vengeance and redemption through the Nine Circles of Hell. You are Dante, a veteran of the Crusades who must chase his beloved Beatrice and try to free her soul from Lucifer's grasp. As your pursuit takes you deeper into the pits of Hell, you must battle ever more fierce and hideous monsters, while also facing your own sins, a dark family past, and your unforgivable war crimes.
