Vergil DLC Character Available Now for Devil May Cry 5

Devil May Cry 5 Vergil DLC

Capcom have announced the launch of the Vergil DLC character for hack and slash action game Devil May Cry 5.

Originally only part of the Devil May Cry 5 Special Editionthe announcement of that special edition also stated the Vergil DLC would be available for the base game at a later date.

Vergil is playable on all 20 of the game’s missions in the main story, and can be used on the 100 floor Bloody Palace and The Void. He also retains his Concentration Gauge mechanic from Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition.

The gauge fills as Vergil strikes enemies down, avoids damage, and walks slowly. In turn, the higher the gauge is, the more damage and range his attacks will have. Unique moves can also be used at the higher levels.

You can find the launch trailer below.

The Vergil DLC is available now for $4.99 USD. You can find the rundown on the base game (via Steam) below.

The Devil you know returns in this brand new entry in the over-the-top action series available on the PC. Prepare to get downright demonic with this signature blend of high-octane stylized action and otherworldly & original characters the series is known for. Director Hideaki Itsuno and the core team have returned to create the most insane, technically advanced and utterly unmissable action experience of this generation!

The threat of demonic power has returned to menace the world once again in Devil May Cry 5. The invasion begins when the seeds of a “demon tree” take root in Red Grave City. As this hellish incursion starts to take over the city, a young demon hunter Nero, arrives with his partner Nico in their “Devil May Cry” motorhome. Finding himself without the use of his right arm, Nero enlists Nico, a self-professed weapons artist, to design a variety of unique mechanical Devil Breaker arms to give him extra powers to take on evil demons such as the blood sucking flying Empusa and giant colossus enemy Goliath.


  • High octane stylized action – Featuring three playable characters each with a radically different stylish combat play style as they take on the city overrun with demons
  • Groundbreaking graphics – Developed with Capcom’s in-house proprietary RE engine, the series continues to achieve new heights in fidelity with graphics that utilize photorealistic character designs and stunning lighting and environmental effects.
  • Take down the demonic invasion – Battle against epic bosses in adrenaline fueled fights across the over-run Red Grave City all to the beat of a truly killer soundtrack.
  • Demon hunter – Nero, one of the series main protagonists and a young demon hunter who has the blood of Sparda, heads to Red Grave City to face the hellish onslaught of demons, with weapons craftswoman and new partner-in-crime, Nico. Nero is also joined by stylish, legendary demon hunter, Dante and the mysterious new character, V.
