DmC Devil May Cry DLC lets you play as Dante's brother, Vergil; new video inside
Dante may be the star of the upcoming DmC Devil May Cry, but that doesn't be his brother Vergil won't be getting his time in the spotlight.
Today, Capcom announced that Vergil will be the star of his very own DLC adventure, titled ‘Vergil's Downfall'. Soon to be available on PSN and XBLA, the DmC DLC will gives fans a chance to take Vergil through his own special storyline featuring new weapons, combos, enemies, and locations.
Capcom also provided a character description for DmC's take on Vergil:
Vergil is Dante's twin brother. While Dante was put into an orphanage run by demons and ended up a street kid, Vergil was adopted into a rich, educated and very privileged home. A highly intelligent and gifted individual, he wrote a security encryption program that eventually made him a multi-millionaire before he even finished school.
Vergil hates the demons for having killed his mother and enslaved his father and uses his riches in the single minded pursuit to bring them down. Calculating and dispassionate, Vergil's decisions are always logical, strategic and never emotional. He formed the underground organisation known as The Order to research the demons with the goal of toppling their hold over humanity.
Vergil's Downfall will be available shortly following DmC Devil May Cry's launch on January 15, 2013 for the price of 720 Microsoft Points on XBLA or $8.99 on PSN. While that is the asking price, North American fans who pre-order the game at GameStop or EB Canada will receive a redeemable code that lets them get the DLC for free when it releases.
You can get your first look at the Vergil's Downfall DLC in action through the newly-released trailer below.
