Sony is kicking off 2014 with a bang when it comes to the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection, with free downloads of some of 2013's best games. Throughout January, six games will be added to the library of free games for Plus subscribers. Klei Entertainment's Don't Starve will become the third free PlayStation 4 game on Plus, following November's offering of Resogun and Contrast at the console's launch. PlayStation 3 owners will be able to check out Ninja Theory's DmC: Devil May Cry, Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite and Starbreeze Studios' Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. And two PlayStation Vita titles round out the lineup: Smart As... from Climax Studios and XDev Studio Europe, and Team17's Worms: Battle Islands.

Vergil's Downfall expansion for DmC: Devil May Cry launching March 5 on PS3 and PC, March 6 on Xbox 360

DmC: Devil May Cry publisher Capcom will launch the game's Vergil's Downfall expansion March 5 on PlayStation 3 and Windows PC, and March 6 on Xbox 360, the company announced today. It's a slight delay — the company told Polygon last week that the DLC would be released by the end of February. The DLC will cost $8.99 on PlayStation Network and Windows PC, and 720 Microsoft Points ($9) on Xbox Live. It contains a new story campaign that is three to five hours long and features Dante's twin brother, Vergil. The content was a pre-order bonus, so those customers will be able to download it at no extra cost. We recently had a chance to go hands-on with Vergil's Downfall and interview senior producer Alex Jones. You can check out our impressions here, and watch some gameplay footage from...

As you might notice in this Today I Played, my reaction to DmC fluctuates between curious, disgusted and confused. Unlike the outspoken fans of the series, who have plenty of other issues with the game, I came to DmC with little baggage. I'd played previous games, but being action-brawlers, my interest waned by the second or third boss battle. DmC will be the first of the series I finish. The game, about a demon hunter named Dante, has a slow build. Yes, the first thing you do is fight a giant hell beast. But what weapons and moves are available reduce it to button mashing. For entertainment, I turned to the story, which is the grotesque love child of They Live and an episode of Futurama. After hours of weapons training and cinematic exposition, the game finally kicked in....

The launch trailer for DmC: Devil May Cry presents a sliver of each of the game's constituent parts: A demonic storyline, combo-based combat and some ear-rattling dubstep. The first third of the launch trailer sets up the supernatural story: Dante, a Nephilim, must use his angelic and demonic powers to wage war against Mundus, an evil entity capable of manipulating the world around him. That war-waging takes the form of sword-and-gunplay combos familiar to fans of the franchise, focusing on juggling multiple enemies at once with upward strikes and salvos of gunfire. DmC: Devil May Cry is out today for Xbox 360 and PS3. If you're on the fence about Ninja Theory's reboot, check out our recent review.

Limbo is not a safe place for DmC: Devil May Cry's bombastic hero Dante, and uncovering the secrets of his devilish-angelic heritage is no cakewalk either, as shown in a new video of gameplay footage posted by Eurogamer. The video posted above walks viewers through the game's ninth story mission, a nighttime jaunt through the world of Limbo. Dante must navigate a castle that has been flipped upside down and warped into a demon-stuffed version of its original incarnation, making his way to a mid-game boss for a bloody showdown. Dante must also recover a mechanical eye belonging to a demon who has been imprisoned in the warped castle, and after doing so is rewarded with a not-so-heartwarming story about his heritage. DmC: Devil May Cry will be released on Jan. 15 for PlayStation and...

Capcom shared two new videos today for the upcoming Devil May Cry reboot, DmC: Devil May Cry, offering a brief look at Dante's stylized attacks, as well as what to expect from twin brother Vergil in combat. The video above shows how stylized, action-film-esque moves can boost players' "style rank" and rack up points in combo chains. Watch as Dante strings together devastating blows, switching seamlessly between his guns, sword and whip before sliding quickly into defensive maneuvers, never missing a beat. The faster players act, the higher the style rank will be. The footage posted below shows Vergil as a playable character, gliding through areas and dicing enemies with seemingly flawless effort. Vergil will be the main focus of the Vergil's Downfall downloadable content pack, which...

DmC: Devil May Cry's PC version, which recently received a release date on Steam of Jan. 25, is the subject of the title's latest gameplay video, released by Capcom earlier today. The video shows new, dark-haired Dante's trademark swords-and-guns combat, which Capcom claims will run at 60 frames-per-second when the game launches next year. Those worried about the difficulties of keeping your minutes-long combos going using a mouse and keyboard, don't fret — Capcom also announced that the game would support wired Xbox 360 and other third-party controllers as well. DmC: Devil May Cry will also launch on Xbox 360 and PS3 Jan. 15.
