DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition Announced
Capcom has announced DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition, a remastered edition for 2013’s hack and slash action-adventure for PlayStation 4 & Xbox One.
The Definitive Edition will include the game, all previously released downloadable content, including the ‘Vergil’s Downfall’ campaign, new modes, additional gameplay features and more:
The Definitive Edition features:
- 60fps framerate, 1080p resolution on both SKUs.
- Rebalanced, repolished gameplay: Ninja Theory has thoroughly examined the entire game and nearly two years of user feedback, and has made it tighter than ever. This includes bug fixes, rebalanced combat elements, enemy behavior, the Style system, and even new settings like an optional manual lock-on.
- All DLC from the last-gen version of DmC, including costumes, weapon skins, the pre-order bonus items (Item Finder, Orb Harvester), and of course, the “Vergil’s Downfall” campaign—hours of new gameplay starring Dante’s badass brother, Vergil.
- New ‘Bloody Palace’ mode for Vergil: By popular demand, Vergil will now have his own Bloody Palace mode, featuring sixty waves of stylish madness. As an added bonus, the timer in Bloody Palace mode (for both characters) is now a toggle-able setting.
- Turbo Mode: A perennial favorite of the Devil May Cry franchise, this mode gives a 20% speed boost to all gameplay, upgrading the game’s tempo from Adagio to—wait for it—Andante. Pretty proud of that one.
- Hardcore Mode: Designed for those looking for a classic, hardcore challenge, this setting can be toggled on and off between stages, and will affect various aspects of the game, such as Devil Trigger, AI, and the Style system.
- Gods Must Die difficulty level: Unlocked after beating Dante Must Die, this mode is insanely hard, with all enemies spawning in Devil Trigger and dealing 2.5x the normal damage. Plus: no items allowed!
- Must Style mode: For the masochistic, this mode requires that players achieve an S style rank or higher in order to deal damage to enemies.
- New costumes for Dante and Vergil celebrating the Devil May Cry legacy.
- Updated trophies/achievements to account for the new modes.
- New leaderboards for Hardcore Mode and Vergil’s Bloody Palace.
- Next-gen standard sharing functionality – This may be a given, but consider the potential! Every single person who owns the game and has an internet connection will be able to upload combo videos or stream the game live.
There’s more, Capcom also confirmed Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, which is due for summer 2015 release, further information will be shared in the coming months.
“DmC: Devil May Cry sees Dante’s origin story being retold against a contemporary backdrop. Dante is a young man with no respect for authority or society in general.
He knows that he is not human, but also that he is not like the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between worlds, he feels like an outcast.
Thanks to his twin brother Vergil, leader of the anti-establishment group ‘The Order’, Dante is now discovering and coming to terms with what it means to be the child of a demon and an angel.
Combat and movement throughout the game are influenced by Dante’s ability to call upon both angel and demon abilities, dramatically affecting the gameplay style.”
DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition is set to release on March 17, 2015 for $39.99 / €39.99.
