Developed in collaboration with Augmented Reality experts Aurasma, the mobile app will reward players with in-game currency that they can redeem when the game launches early 2013.
By joining The Order, the organisation within the world of DmC formed to fight the demons, users of the app are challenged to undertake different quests and achieve specific goals, to attain points towards their style ranking. Completion of missions will result in exclusive unlockable rewards, such as wallpapers and ringtones as well as points which can then be redeemed within DmC Devil May Cry for Red Orbs, the in-game currency used to upgrade and unlock Dante’s skills.
By simply using their smartphone camera, The Eye of Dante also allows users to discover hidden messages behind real-world items and objects, just as Dante has the ability to see through the demons’ lies and propaganda in the game.
You can find the app available now for free on Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store, however no word on a Windows version.
DmC Devil May Cry will be available on January 15th 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and a later date for PC.
