DmC Devil May Cry Definitive Edition For PS4 And Xbox One Coming In March, Includes All DLC And 60fps Support [VIDEO]
The latest in the long line of ‘shoulda just waited for the uber-complete edition’ releases, Capcom and Ninja Theory have announced that DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition will be out next March for current generation consoles. To those who waited, we salute your clever decision.
The new 1080p, 60fps title will include the original game and all previously released downloadable content. This includes the “Vergil’s Downfall” campaign as well as brand new modes and additional gameplay features. All costumes come with the game as well.
To be fair to the original version of DmC Devil May Cry, much of the DLC was free or required a pre-order for the Xbox 360 or PS3 versions. But increasingly often, players have to wait just a few months for all of the new content to be available for the same price as the original game.
DmC Devil May Cry launched in January of last year. It is an alternate-reality retelling of Devil May Cry, the still-wonderful shooter for the PS2. The reimagining was meant to provide a more western type story and gameplay to the series and was generally successful. DmC follows Dante, a now troubled, angry young man as he learns to control the divine energies flowing within him as he assists and later defeats his brother, Vergil.
DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition will let players into the shoes of Vergil in the Vergil’s Bloody Palace Mode. It also states: “For an extra depth of challenge, players will be able to try out the added Gods Must Die difficulty level and Must Style Mode as well as Hardcore Mode, which has been designed to play more like the classic Devil May Cry series.” Naturally, there will be a Turbo mode, which undoubtedly kicks things up to 11.
The game is out on March 17 for both Xbox One and PS4 and will retail for $39.99. Check out all the new additions via the official PlayStation Blog. Watch the hardcore announcement trailer below.
