DmC: Devil May Cry gets Bloody Palace DLC on February 20

Free survival gauntlet for Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry reboot to be released at the end of the month.

by

DmC: Devil May Cry's free Bloody Palace mode will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 20, Capcom has announced.

No details about a PC release were given by Capcom.

Bloody Palace, a mainstay of the series, is a survival gauntlet that throws waves of increasingly difficult enemy combinations at the player. UK developer Ninja Theory's take on the mode claims to offer over 100 levels and five boss fights.

Despite the content being free to download, players will need to complete the game once before it can be accessed.

Capcom has already released a costume pack for DmC: Devil May Cry that allows players to change the look of its revamped protagonist back to DMC3-era Dante.

Ninja Theory is also working on the Vergil's Downfall DLC, which is scheduled to be released later in February. The new single-player mini-campaign will be priced at 720MSP or $8.99/£7.29/€8.99.

DmC: Devil May Cry scored a respectable 8.0 in its GameSpot review. "DmC succeeds both in its story and in its brilliant combat, and it looks the business too, despite a few minor glitches and the more colour-soaked levels looking like they've spent a little too much time in an Instagram filter," said reviewer Mark at the time.

I really hope this game gets a sequel... Sure, it had it's downsides, but the game was awesome (I can finally control my camera!).


Also, I find it funny when someone comes here to say "us, real DMC fans..." Please... that's bullshit and pure fanboyism!  Everybody that played and bought this game is a DMC fan.


Hopefully, the next game will fix and add more awesome stuff (remember, this new Dante has just awakened his powers, so he might get a lot more powerful later on in this series's reboot)

I don't really see the problem with this game. I swear if people don't have things to moan and whine about they'll nitpick at minute things just to meet their quota. The game is perfectly fine. Maybe a bit easy, but it doesn't entirely ruin the experience.

Got to love all the try hards who act all tough because "I beatz DMC 1 yo" when most of them don't even know the meaning of hard and bet you those same people could not even beat the previous DMC.


It sad , a really good game bombs and why? because it does not resemble some mediocre crap that all it had going for it was the combat. 


And people wonder why there are so many crap sequels instead of new IP's.

This is good news to me. I'm a huge fan of this new direction because as far as I am concerned, the original storyline had run out it's welcome. The combat system may not be as deep as previous entries but the important part is that it's fun and I had a hard time putting it down. More content, especially for free, is a good thing. Virgil's content is gonna be on the cheap as well.

Funny the game crapped out because of said "moan and whine", lol. Oh right, that was the fans speaking up...

@Jestersmiles 

It failed because the game didn't cater to its fan base. Instead reaching for sales via the casual misogynistic twelve year old. Maybe they should try something "original" as opposed to re-imagining a beloved character, and mocking most fans in the process.

@bd_devil "Looser" is believing that capslock will give you more credit. Not writing a proper English also helps in that.

Cause the DMC fanbase is going to keep the pressure on. You don't reboot a franchise that doesn't need it let alone when the fans don't want it. Capcom will learn one way or another. Simple as that.

@SUNDRAGONJ I think there's an unfortunate number of idiotic people who are attracted to these articles for some odd reason.  Interesting how they hate the game so much yet follow the news so vigorously.

@GeminiEntity @Al_Capwn You can't please everyone all the time. From what I see everything is still there. It's just not presented the same way. Get over it.

@AluminumAndroid @Jestersmiles WHAT??? "the game didn't cater to its fan base"

Why because it has easier combat? That the game only fault and it a minor one at that. The game literary beats the crap out of the previous ones in every other aspect.

Plus I loved that fact Ninja Theory mock you try hards, they had every right too. You people passed judgment on the game before it even came out. Logic FTL.

You obviously are not looking hard enough, as everything is not there. DmC is DMC made casual. Like I said, the fans spoke, you should get over that.

GeminiEntity

@Jestersmiles  

Your lack of knowledge and use of the word "mediocre" when it comes to the DMC series speaks loud and clear, you are not a fan.

Nope, the combat in DmC is casual and lacking the depth the original DMC series had. For a hack and slash it is decent but nothing special.

Keep your fantasies to yourself, lol.

Jestersmiles
Jestersmiles

@GeminiEntity @Jestersmiles Not a fan Pls? Loved Dmc one and 3. Again you over exaggerating on the whole combat being weak, the combat good. 

For a hack and slash it good combat.

Go stroke your epeen while wearing your Dante shorts.

@Jestersmiles  

Indeed, we want top notch quality gameplay, something you obviously know nothing of given your posts above. And what we want matters, given how DmC is not selling to expectations, along with the fact that the DMC HD collection is selling nicely. 

Keep trying, lol.

GeminiEntity
GeminiEntity

@Jestersmiles 

Thing is, the older games didn't focus on the story (they had great gameplay) or act as if that was a selling point. DmC was touted as being good in the story department and yet it isn't. So casual gameplay and a weak story, sounds nice, lol.

Yea consoles only, where the majority of the fans/sales come from. Another weak point for DmC, awesome.

The combat is casual and nothing special. I proved you have no idea what you're talking about. You also don't seem like a fan of the older games, thus really have no room to talk about this whole situation. So yea, I have done nice work here. Can't say the same for you and your "try hards" case, lol.

Jestersmiles
Jestersmiles

@GeminiEntity @Jestersmiles  if this DMC had a weak story what you call the utter crap the other ones had? 

Right

30 fps only a problem on consoles Q_Q

Combat still good for a hack and slash. Again you proven nothing other that you one of the try hards hating on something for no reason.

GeminiEntity
GeminiEntity

@Jestersmiles 

Casual combat, 30fps, Dino replacing Dante, rather weak story despite that being a bigger focus of the game, etc. Also, considering it's a hack and slash game, combat should be the best part yet fails here, pretty ironic, lol.

I love the fact that Capcom and NT thought they could do whatever they wanted with the DMC series and have it sell 5mill only to lower that goal big time, lol. Us fans know what we want, it's not hard to see if a game is going against that from the beginning. Seriously now...

GeminiEntity

@Jestersmiles  

You clearly have no idea what you are talking about for a few reasons.

1. The DMC series is considered by the majority of gamers and reviewers to be up there with NG and Bayo. GoW while a good game is not in the same league. It's lack the depth which is what defines a truly great hack and slash.

2. DMC3 is pretty much the best out of the series, with DMC1 and then DMC4 following. DMC2 is the only "mediocre" game of the series.

3. DmC at best is up there with GoW, but even then that is pushing it. DmC is nothing special really, whether you accept it or not changes nothing, lol.

Jestersmiles

@GeminiEntity @Jestersmiles DMC is mediacore hack and slash at best. The only real good one was the first one, and that one still has it problems.

Please Ninja Gaiden and God of war are both way better hack and slash. 

The only thing DMC has is Dante, other than that Gaiden and god of war are both superior games in every aspect.

GeminiEntity

@Jestersmiles   

Spoke out, as in we made it clear that we don't want DmC and want the original DMC back. The DMC series is respected and viewed as one of the best hack and slash types for a reason and no matter what you say will change that.

Actually it does, as there probably will not be a DmC2. I will gladly enjoy the superior DMC games, as DmC is the real "crap" game, lol.


Jestersmiles
Jestersmiles

@GeminiEntity @AluminumAndroidSpoke out about what? again you people act like the previous DMCs were godsend. Ninja Theory DMC had one flaw, easier combat,  but in every other aspect it beats the crap out of the other games.

And just because the "fan Spoke" don't mean shit. Fanboys are nothing but sheep. lol the "fan" spoke LOL enjoy your crap.

@Strider8009 Ok kid you tapped out... I see you have nothing more to add.

Back to the subject at hand, could someone please explain how this new iteration of the series mocked the former? You can't say it's strictly because they changed the character...

@Plasmid_king It's basic culture to properly write, not to mention that only an English speaker with low culture would type something as "Becuz"

Btw: Such a deep and convincing review you just posted! I'm astonished! Next time we can discuss the difference between "trash talking" and "having the knowledge to identify when a game is good regardless of personal opinions". You really need to know the difference.
