Devil May Cry 5 Bloody Palace Release Date

Ah, the Bloody Palace. How many hours we sank into you back in the days of Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition. Once again asking players to hack and slash their way through hordes of enemies, the Bloody Palace is soon set to return in Devil May Cry 5 as a totally free update.

The official press release reads: "Bloody Palace is a survival mode that pits you against hordes of increasingly difficult enemies and bosses whilst racing against the ticking timer. Play as Dante, Nero or V in Bloody Palace Mode through multiple levels of enemies and truly test your SSStylish skills." Exactly what we were expecting, then.

But that may not be the whole story. Earlier this month, there were rumours that the Bloody Palace will allow for full online multiplayer functionality and perhaps an additional playable character, but Capcom's said nothing on either of those topics. We'll just have to wait and see what's included.

Fortunately, we won't be kept in the dark for very long, as the update's due to arrive on the 1st April. Will you be putting your combo skills to the test? Try not to get blood all over the comments section below.
