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.
On February 7th, 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.
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. Playable Character: Vergil will be released for the base version of the game available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC as a paid DLC at a later date.
Deluxe Edition[edit | edit source]
These are tied to the Deluxe Edition of the game. Those who bought the regular version of the game can buy the Deluxe Upgrade for $14.99, allowing you to gain all content exclusive to the Deluxe Edition.

Right now all of our efforts are focused on the main game, so I want you to enjoy that first. We are preparing DLC after the main game to the utmost, that users can choose according to their preference."
