With today's DmC: Devil May Cry patch comes news of that previously announced Bloody Palace mode. Anyone waiting to play this Devil May Cry staple will be happy to know that Capcom has plans to release the arena-esque mode next week, through a free update.
Capcom is currently expecting Bloody Palace to arrive on Tuesday, February 19, for PS3 and Wednesday, February 20, for Xbox 360. Europeans will get the DLC on Wednesday too, regardless of platform. Before today, all we really knew was that the mode would be out a little after the full game. Good thing it's free, because Devil May Cray just isn't the same without the classic arena mode.
Next week's update does include a patch as well, which aims to iron out a few issues with the game. The most "notable" fixes are as follows:
-Poison AI issue addressed (she no longer enters non-interactive state)
-Lessened damage and style boost from Demon Evade
-Arbiter "Drop" now causes damage and style gain even if jump-canceled
-Non-damaging moves no longer provide style points
-Damage done by weakest enemies increased
-Damage done by all enemies increased on Nephilim and Son of Sparda modes
-Adjusted attack (parry) windows for Rage spin move.
-SS and SSS will now decay back down to S if you stop gaining style
-No more eternal angel glide (where Dante flies around)
If you're playing the PC version, Capcom will be releasing a fix for the rumble issue tomorrow.
