Capcom has today confirmed that the Bloody Palace mode for DmC: Devil May Cry will be available post-launch as completely free DLC, amid fears from fans that the publisher might consider charging for it. Worry not, oh demon slaying faithful. It'll cost you nothing.

"As in previous instalments of the series, Bloody Palace Mode will be playable on completion of the main game and deliver over 100 levels of demons and enemies, including five brutal bosses," Capcom confirmed in a statement. "As ever stylish combat will be recognised with gamers having the opportunity to top the global leaderboards as Bloody Palace’s number one demon slayer."

There's six screenshots from Bloody Palace mode in the gallery. DmC is out on January 15th, 2013 and will be reviewed on this here site very soon. Stay tuned.

Excited about "free" content that was already free in the previous DMC's? I can't...

Still I applaud the effort and I'll still be picking it up.

I'm still in 2 minds about this game. I want to get it but the fact that almost everything I know from the past DMC games have not been included in this...

Might be a rental for me.

However, despite what people say, free DLC is always good, no matter what it is.

Pathetic attempt from Capcom to try make up for all their on-disc DLC nonsense from previous games eg, Street Fighter 4, Resi 5. Piece of shit company.

@6 if its a pathetic attempt to make up for those things by doing the very thing differently from what they are insulted of.

How would you recommend they did things differently .

I agree with #6 and #7. I dont see why people are giving capcom praise for something that was put in two previous games of the same franchise.

Cease to exist as company? They make shit games ( and have the audacity to charge for DLC (on-disk or not, should be free). This gen, most of their games should have been priced as a budget title.

Lol at how I'm getting thumbs down for stating the truth. Don't get me wrong, I was a big fan of Capcom, but with generation of consoles, they have screwed up big time. Resident Evil 5 & 6 anyone?

@3 - 2 has a valid point. What the hell is the point of day one dlc that is free? Just put it on the disc to begin with and nobody has to fanny about downloading something!

@13 - Deadline. There might have not been enough time in production to get it onto the disc. That's probably why it's day 1 DLC and free.

I glad it's free, but seems like CAPCOM trying to please the dlc haters by giving away something that should already have been free on the disc.

I think the reasoning behind this is people dislike the Bloody Palace Mode achievements, so, by offering it as free DLC, they have an excuse not to give achievements for it. Idk.

So when is Capcom going to actually make a Megaman Sequel thats not some nostalgia throwback crap like 9 and 10? Where is my Legends 3? X9? An actual Megaman 9?

it makes me laugh, people rightly complained about capcom releasing on disc dlc and charging for it ( bastards) but now they seemed to have learned from it and are doing it free, yet people complain about that too, i say good on them, hopefully theyve learnt and it will start a trend among other developers.... time will tell.

as for bloody palace being included before, it is a shame for those that may not be able to download it, but it still seems a step in the right direction for day 1 dlc, hopefully capcom will release a ( cheaper ) version later with added content... again, time will tell.......

Makes you wonder what else is locked away and they will charge for when they talk of a survival mode being included as a free download.

I don't buy for 1 second it's cos of time constraints as if you think what goes into Bloody Palace...same stage just different enemies.

Seams like Capcom is trying to butter people up by 'giving away something for free' to cover up for all the disc locked content bull shit they pulled over previous games.

Well Capcom released half great, half good, half medicore and few crap games in this generation of consoles. I must said.

We will expect this year to seem to have lots of Capcom games like...

Remember Me, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Monster Hunter 4, DmC, Lost Planet 3, rumours mention maybe new Dead Rising and port version of Resident Evil: Revelations from 3DS version onto consoles this year also Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is coming this year (weren't sure if it is Dragon's Dogma's first big DLC or it is 2nd series or something for retail disc game either) and there more Capcom games on way this year. It's seem Capcom's big year of their business. :P

Look forward DmC next week then Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U in this March then Remember Me coming this May and Lost Planet 3 should release around Q2 2013 as well I hope Resi Evil: Revelations for consoles port of 3DS version. Those is my most look forward Capcom games of 2013. ;P

#28 I think it is update patch on day of game release and it is free DLC in update or we just have downloading DLC in marketplace. Could be either. :):)

@ 24

Street fighter 4 is almost the worst game to come out on the 360, how can you say it is so good and so many people still play it, you clearly haven't played tekken in a while because SF4 looks like a pile of garbage in comparison

Guys it's Capcom, while you can complain it should have already been on the disc, they aren't making us pay for it. While this is normal for anyone else, it's a step in the right direction for Capcom.

Baby steps...

@30 lmfao your funny there kid. tekken is a good game but not as popular as street fighter i think the reason you say this is because you are garbage at every fighting game you play.mvc3 is better than any tekken game made and as well as more popular i think you should get your facts straight little boy before you talk trash.lmfao

You're bashing @30 for not agreeing with somoenes opinion - but you're doing the same? Hypocrisy.

I understand both sides of the arguement with the DLC. I dont see why it can't be on the disc and available for all (Not everyone has the internet). Then again, Capcom could have charged for it like so many other companies...

I personally don't give a crap about the DLC, I won't play it.

@16 - You'll have to use someone else's net connection. Best to use your own console if possible. Sucks I know, but that's the downside of everything relying on the net; those without are overlooked.

Exactly where did I "bash" his opinion?! I just said he was wrong and stated actual facts of why SSF4 is STILL thee most played fighting game on the planet. Don't believe me?! Check out Eventhubs and Be careful with the white-knighting!

I'm looking through all these comments, and the same question keeps popping into my head. before I do, I'll admit it right now, I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to discussions of this nature. I don't exactly keep up with news of this sort. that being said, why are you guys complaining when more than half of you are most likely going to by the game anyway? it kinda removes weight from your complaints when you know something's wrong and you buy it ANYWAY, doesn't it? before you all tear into me, keep in mind, this an honest question not meant to insult anyone. I'm genuinely curious about this.
