Capcom has today confirmed that it will be adding the popular Bloody Palace mode to the newly released Devil May Cry 5. The mode will be added to the game by way of a free update on all platforms on Monday 1st April. No, this isn’t a joke.

Bloody Palace has been a regular feature in many Devil May Cry games, seeing players battling it out against not only the clock, but increasingly difficult waves of enemies. This time around you will be able to play as any one of the three protagonists from Devil May Cry 5, all of which possess their own skill-sets to tackle the challenges that await in the Bloody Palace.
There were rumours circulating that a Bloody Palace update for Devil May Cry 5 might in fact feature online multiplayer and additional playable characters. No information was given to either confirm or deny these rumours, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see what else is included in the free update.
Devil May Cry 5 has been extremely well received by critics, with many calling it the best title in the series. The game entered the UK sales chart at number one, marking a very successful year so far for Capcom who have also had success with the brilliant Resident Evil 2 Remake.
