To answer your question: Yes, Capcom and Ninja Theory will be releasing a premium DLC pack for DmC: Devil May Cry approximately one month after the release of the full game. Eager beavers, aren’t they? It seems the studios simply can’t wait to tell the story of Vergil’s supposed downfall in the upcoming DLC pack… ‘Vergil’s Downfall’. Dante’s no-nonsense brother is indeed set to receive his moment in the spotlight, with his very own campaign, complete with new ‘weapons, combos, enemies, and locations’. claims Capcom. This won’t just be a rehashing of Dante’s rebooted tale either, it seems, for Vergil will have his own unique story to tell when the DLC inevitable comes crashing in.
According to Capcom, we can expect the ‘Vergil’s Downfall’ DLC to land on Xbox 360 and PS3 in February and cost 720 Microsoft Points or $8.99, respectively. North American consumers whom pre-order DmC: Devil May Cry via GameStop or EB Canada will apparently receive a redeemable code to access Vergil’s Downfall at no charge when the content becomes available, but I have no clue as to where that leaves the rest of us whom might be residing outside of the States.
Oddly enough, Capcom felt the necessity to point out in the corresponding press release that this DLC pack is absolutely not one of those locked on-disk DLC deals that fans have become quite sour towards. The complete DLC package will allegedly be downloaded onto those hard drives of ours upon purchase, and will not simply be a case of the content simply being ‘unlocked’. Allegedly.
