November 20, 2012 // 8:34 am - Ninja Theory Communications Manager Dominic Matthews has detailed DmC: Devil May Cry demo PlayStation 3 DLC complete with a video trailer below!

To quote: Hello, Dominic Matthews here from Ninja Theory bringing you an update on DmC: Devil May Cry.

First off, I want to tell you about some DmC add-on content that we just announced. Called Vergil's Downfall, it features six brand new missions, in new environments where you play as Dante's twin brother Vergil.

Vergil has his own unique combat system (if you know Vergil from the previous games you'll recognize some of his signature moves) and the story, which is intertwined with the events of the main game, takes place in Vergil's very own personal hell. Lovely!

You'll also get to take on new enemies and upgrade Vergil's combat as you play. Once you've completed all the new missions you'll have four new difficulty modes to unlock including Son of Sparda and Vergil Must Die, both of which feature unique enemy waves and enemy behaviours that are different from those in the three default difficulty settings.

The reason that we're telling you about this add-on content before the main game is even out is not because it's finished (because it's not, there is still a lot of work to be done!), but because we want to offer it to you for free when you pre-order DmC: Devil May Cry.

It will be available to buy if you wish, but if you pre-order the digital version of DmC: Devil May Cry on PSN you'll get to download Vergil's Downfall at no additional cost when it is released early next year. So if you like your add-on content meaty and you like it for free, pre-order DmC.

The second piece of news I wanted to give you is that the DmC: Devil May Cry demo will be available to download on PSN starting today. The demo includes two missions: Under Watch, which takes place in the heart of DmC's city streets, and Secret Ingredient, which is a boss battle against the adorable Succubus demon (you'll see what I mean when you meet her!).

When you start the demo you'll have the choice of three default difficulties to select from, but if you complete both missions on one of those three settings you'll unlock the demo's Son of Sparda mode. This presents the demo's hardest challenge, featuring a unique set of tougher enemies and enemy waves to take on.

From the start of the demo Dante is equipped with his Rebellion sword, His Ebony and Ivory hand guns, his demonic axe the Arbiter and the angelic scythe Osiris. We wanted to give you a really good feel of how the combat plays so we've started you off with quite a few upgrades on all of the weapons in the demo too.

Try my personal favourite, the Stinger (forward, forward, triangle). I've been stabbing demons in the eye with the Stinger for a couple of years now and I still get a kick out of it.

If you like the demo, pre-order the game on PSN and get Vergil's Downfall for free. I'll be taking your questions below - please fire away.

It's more than his new appearance, his motivations for doing things, and the general direction of the game. Changing from likeable smart-ass to hate worthy prick didn't help much either.

Is there a way to get this demo (& run it) on 3.41 CFW? I've been wanting to try this since many moons ago

I highly disagree ... To me this feels like pretty much just any DMC game, but with characters looking different, perhaps that's just because I wasn't really a big fan of the old dmc.

Free DLC on the non-physical release isn't enough incentive for pirates to suddenly decide to buy a copy; a copy pirated doesn't automatically mean a sale was lost.

Who would want to pre-order this junk?

You know you can pirate PSN games too right? Also, It's free DLC, people will just hack It and will release to everyone, lol. I really doubt this is an anti-piracy measure, It's just Capcom and Ninja Theory being retarded.

Well hello its an incentive guys so people wont just steal the game you know what I mean once it comes out it will be backed up everyone will have it for free, so they want to try to get as many digital releases sold so thats why they offer it only to digital download buyers... to fight piracy.

I will compare this one too DMC3 because DMC3 was the best of the series. To capcom and ninja theory: there are many people with very slow internet connection. they usually buy physical copies. In future at least give the DLC free to those who order pre-order physical copies.
