Twitch has added the much promoted free copy of the Devil May Cry HD to the Twitch Launcher for prime subscribers. To claim the free game all you have to do is head on over to http://www.twitch.tv , click on the crown and under the image of DMC click “add to library”. Like other Twitch Prime rewards, Devil May Cry HD is yours to keep even after your Twitch Prime subscription lapses.
Clearly the gratis copy of DMC1 HD is a move by Capcom to help promote the upcoming Devil May Cry HD Collection, which will see its releae on PC for the first time on March 13th. Devil May Cry HD Collection includes touched up versions of the 2001 original, the mediocre 2003 sequel Devil May Cry 2 and 2005’s Devil May Cry 3.
Several DMC games have made their way to PC over the years – namely Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition which was originally ported a year after the console release in 2006, Devil May Cry 4 which was released on PC in 2008 and Ninja Theory’s D.M.C reboot in 2013. Both 4 and D.M.C are absent from the upcoming HD Collection but can still be purchased through Steam in their original form.
