Devil May Cry fans rejoice – it looks like we're getting a playable demo of the game tomorrow!
A Facebook post from Xbox Portugal revealed that the game will be getting a demo on Friday 7th December, as well as annoucing that the game will get a Bloody Palace mode (following on from the mode's appearance in the last three games).
Xbox Portugal notes that Bloody Palace will be made available as a free update for Devil May Cry 5 in April 2019.
In the meantime, Xbox players will be able to download the demo tomorrow – we're assuming after Geoff Keighley wraps up The Game Awards at about 4am GMT.

Devil May Cry 5 – What is it?
Devil May Cry 5 was formally announced at E3 2018 this year by Capcom on the Microsoft stage during the Xbox presser.
The game is the fifth installment in the Devil May Cry series. It is a sequel to Devil May Cry 4, which was released in 2008 – the first numbered entry in the title in 10 years.
The gameplay will feature the return of Dante and Nero as playable characters, along with a currently unknown third character.
Nero is equipped with his Red Queen sword, his Blue Rose double-barreled revolver (as per his build in Devil May Cry 4) and a new robotic arm with a variety of functions such as grabbing enemies from a distance or stopping time to freeze an enemy in place.
According to information from E3, the music will scale to directly match the player's performance in combat.
