After TGS 2018, Devil May Cry 5 was added to the Xbox Marketplace, PlayStation Store and last on the Steam store. Alongside the game, multiple Downloadable Contents were offered depending on which edition was bought.

Development[edit | edit source]

On January 8th, 2019, a press conference for Devil May Cry 5 was held at Seoul, South Korea. There, Hideaki Itsuno stated that there was the possibility of adding more playable characters if there was enough fan demand.[1]

On February 7th, 2019, Michiteru Okabe stated in a DengekiOnline interview that more DLC was planned beyond just the Bloody Palace, but did not specify its nature, which could have been alluding to the DLCs that unlock in-game content.[2]

On April 23rd, 2019, Matthew Walker confirmed on Twitter that there were no plans for future content.[3]

On September 16, 2020, the Special Editon of the game was officially announced that includes playable Vergil and, among other features, content previously released for the base game as DLC – Deluxe Upgrade (additional weapons, music and alternative Style Rank announcers and title calls), pre-order bonuses (alternative color costumes) and Bloody Palace.[4] Playable Vergil was released for the base version of the game available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC as a paid DLC on December 15, 2020.[5]

On November 5, 2020, Siliconera posted an interview with producer Matthew Walker, there he stated that the development team started planning on how "Vergil Mode" would work only after Devil May Cry 5 released, and that any data or content found by modders related to a playable Vergil were actually all related to a system designed to test Vergil as a boss.[6]

Deluxe Edition[edit | edit source]

These are tied to the Deluxe Edition of the original game. Those who bought the regular version of the original game can buy the Deluxe Upgrade for $14.99, allowing one to gain all content exclusive to the Deluxe Edition.
