Now Playing: Devil May Cry 5 References and Easter Eggs

Devil May Cry 5 is getting the series' staple Bloody Palace mode in a couple of weeks. Capcom has confirmed it will be adding the survival-based mode to its acclaimed action game as a free update across PS4, Xbox One, and PC in just a couple weeks' time. It releases on April 1.

Bloody Palace has appeared in nearly every Devil May Cry game to date. The mode pits players against increasingly challenging waves of enemies and bosses, all while a timer ticks down. In DMC5's iteration, you'll be able to play as one of the game's three protagonists: Dante, Nero, or V. You can take a look at some screenshots of the mode below.

Devil May Cry 5 launched earlier this month and has already proven to be a critical and commercial success for Capcom. The game debuted at No. 1 in the UK and has garnered positive reviews, including from GameSpot. We awarded it a 9/10 and called it "a brilliant iteration of the series' best qualities" in our Devil May Cry 5 review.

"DMC5 thrives on the stylistic and mechanical prowess of its predecessors. It sticks to tradition above all else, pursuing a few ambitious new ideas along the way, but mostly maintaining the series' focus on intricate fighting systems and campy bravado," GameSpot's Matt Espineli said. "DMC5 proves the series can still be brilliant and imaginative without compromising its longest-held traditions."

Can't wait to topple that. This game is easy, even on Heaven or hell mode "near impossible". Now doing "Against all odds" mode (which Dark souls looks like a joke to).

@videogameninja: If they would have even hinted at charging for the Bloody Palace mode, the internets would have gone nuclear.
