Devil May Cry 5 has been out for a few days now, and the game has enjoyed quite a bit of success with critics and fans alike. Those who've completed the story a few times may be hungry for more, and luckily Capcom is set to expand the game with the Bloody Palace, which will come in April. Details on what the Bloody Palace mode will entail have yet to be revealed by Capcom, but some information has leaked thanks to people digging through the game's PC files.
As discovered by dataminers, it looks as though Devil May Cry 5's Bloody Palace will feature multiplayer and matchmaking. While it's possible that it will be similar to how multiplayer works in the main game, where it's basically just window dressing and not actual multiplayer, the Bloody Palace would lend itself well to full-fledged co-op gameplay.
For the uninitiated, the Bloody Palace is a survival mode where players try their best to survive against waves of enemies. Killing all of the enemies on a floor of the Bloody Palace allows players to advance to the next floor, where they are met with even more enemies to fight. This continues until they've managed to reach the end. It's almost like a Devil May Cry Horde mode of sorts, and seems like it would support co-op well.
Of course, it's possible that Devil May Cry 5's version of the Bloody Palace could be a lot different than what we've seen in the past. Luckily, fans won't have to wait too much longer to find out more about it, as Capcom is expected to add the Bloody Palace to Devil May Cry 5 as a free update in April.
Meanwhile, dataminers found something else interesting in Devil May Cry 5's files in regards to the Bloody Palace. However, in order to talk about what else was discovered, we have to issue a spoiler warning to anyone who has yet to complete Devil May Cry 5's main story mode.
It appears as though Dante's brother Vergil will be making his way to Devil May Cry 5 as a playable character in the Bloody Palace. Again, this has yet to be confirmed or denied by Capcom, but the evidence is there in the game's data, and it would make a great deal of sense considering the character's popularity.
Before fans get too excited about the chance to play as Vergil in Devil May Cry 5 though, we recommend they wait for Capcom to share more information on the new mode.
Devil May Cry 5 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
