DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition Gameplay Trailer Showcases Vergil’s Bloody Palace

February 9, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

The 2nd most fan requested feature for DmC, Vergil’s Bloody Palace is a new Bloody Palace mode featuring 60 levels and Vergil as the playable character. Available as part of the DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition, you can see this new mode in action through the above gameplay trailer.

Switching things up from Dante’s Bloody Palace where the difficulty progresses through the five main difficulty levels, Vergil’s Blood Palace starts on Nephilim difficulty for the first 20 waves, goes to Son of Sparda difficulty for the next 20, and ends with 20 waves of Vergil Must Die difficulty.

Ninja Theory’s Dominic Matthews talked about playing as Vergil:

The best way to play Vergil is to stack up as many kinds of damage as possible. He has lots of attacks which skilled players can layer with his melee moves. For example, Summoned Swords can be fired, and can pull enemies or lift enemies, without interrupting melee attacks. Spiral Swords passively damages enemies once activated, until it wears off. Doppelganger Vergil can be used to attack at the same time as you, or with a delay.

When you layer everything up, you can hit with three or four attacks at a time, which is when Vergil is doing the most damage. Of course Devil May Cry is not just about killing enemies but also about how you kill them. Some stylish moves I recommend trying out are jump cancelling with the Killer Bee and following up an Atomic with a Solar Flare. Loads of damage and loads of style!

DmC Devil May Cry Definitive Edition launches for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 10 for $39.99 at retail and digital stores.
