DmC: Devil May Cry demo out today, Capcom details Vergil's Downfall DLC

A demo for Ninja Theory's DmC: Devil May Cry comes out today, and publisher Capcom detailed both the content in the demo as well as in the post-release Vergil's Downfall downloadable content.

Vergil has a combat style that's different from Dante's, and his attacks and weapons can be upgraded just like those of his twin brother. The six missions in the Vergil's Downfall DLC offer new environments to play through, and upon completion, four difficulty modes similar to those in the main game will be available to unlock, including a Vergil Must Die mode that adds waves of enemies with unique behaviors. The content, which is set for release early next year, will be free to players who pre-order DmC, and will otherwise cost $8.99 on PlayStation Network and 720 Microsoft Points on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Today's demo contains two missions, "Under Watch" and "Secret Ingredient." The former puts Dante in an urban environment, while the latter is a boss battle against the Succubus demon. Completing the demo on any of the three available difficulty levels will unlock the devilishly difficult challenge offered in the Son of Sparda mode. The demo includes a variety of Dante's weapons, and players will be able to test them out with some useful upgrades.

The demo is already available to download on Xbox Live; it will go up later today on PlayStation Network. DmC: Devil May Cry is set for release on PS3 and 360 on Jan. 15, 2013, with a PC version to follow at a later date.

Update: Capcom has released a trailer for the demo. Watch it below.
