Capcom and Ninja Theory's DmC: Devil May Cry is now available to sample on Xbox Live, offering up a pair of missions to tackle as Dante with a bunch of weapons and upgrades at your disposal.

Dante will be equipped with his Rebellion sword, Osiris scythe for angel attacks, demonic Arbiter battle axe and his good old Ebony and Ivory pistols, and will be able to take on the three default difficulties in the demo, before unlocking the hard as nails Son of Sparda difficulty level.

You can download the DmC demo now, and fight through the city of Limbo and take on the hideous Succubus in 'The Secret Ingredient' boss battle. You can add the DmC demo to your download queue here. DmC: Devil May Cry is out on January 15th, 2013.

That's how you handle demos, release them before you can even purchase the final product, XBL is lacking demos lately though.

I'll definitely check this out. I've never been invested enough in the DMC series to care about the shift in tone and look. I hope it's fun.

If the rest of the game stands up to the demo, we will have a great game at the start of the year.

I went from not caring about this to pre ordering it after playing the demo. It's actually quite fun although too easy on SoS.

I dont like how Dante's sword attack is mapped to y and his guns are mapped to x. Primary attacks (sword) should always be X.

Tried the demo. Don't really care for how the angel/demon weapons were handled compared to how theand I miss my styles that the other Dante had, but it's styles/weapons were toggled in DMC4. Not really horrible combat judging from the demo. The fact that devil trigger obliterated the bosses life bar on neph in the matter of 2 seconds made me disappointed though...
New Dante combat-wise feels like if they put Nero in DMC2...

It's nice to see the environment looking less like a PS2 era game with updated graphics though.

May pick it up if for no other reason than that I like scythe weapons in games and new Dante's is no exception.

That was most likely the best demo I've played all year. :)
I have high hopes for this game, and I will most likely get it.

Devil May Cry games have always sucked balls. I'd rather play Brink.

love the demo but i found all keys did all secret missions and found all lost souls. secret missions give you a health shard you get up to three of them no devil shards that i know of, but i wonder if all the money, upgrades and these shards stay with you when the game fully comes out sense you save it and i see it still.
