Pre-order DmC to Get the “Vergil’s Downfall” Add-On for Free
Oh, lordy. This brings me back to when Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition released. At a glance, it was merely a Greatest Hits re-release but, in true Capcom fashion, it had just enough extra content to coerce me into buying something I practically already owned; it let you play as the samurai sword wielding Vergil.
Six years later and DmC is offering fans the ability to play as Dante’s estranged twin once again, except you won’t have to buy the game twice this time around. Enter “Vergil’s Downfall,” a new downloadable chapter that pits Vergil versus an army of darkness in the recesses of Hell. Pre-ordering at either Gamestop or EB Canada will net you “Vergil’s Downfall” for the cost of free. If the reboot-ification of Devil May Cry has you wary until you see a solid review (or until they issue a patch to make Dante’s hair constantly white, if that’s your beef), then you can purchase the add-on after the fact for $8.99 (720 MS).
DmC is still on track for a January 15th release date with “Vergil’s Downfall” being made available afterwards sometime in early 2013. A playable DmC demo is releasing beforehand for Xbox Live and PSN on November 20th and the 21st respectively, finally giving people that adamantly hate Ninja Theory’s reboot their first chance at having an informed opinion.
