We’ve got an Xbox Series X price and release date, and now we’ve got similar for PS5. So what’s next? Well how does a Special Edition of Devil May Cry 5 sound? It promises to bring a host of new features AND a playable Vergil for good measure.
If you’re looking to get the party started then you’ll be doing it with Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition on Xbox Series X/S and PS5.
Arriving digitally as a day one launch title on next-gen (with a physical release later on), Capcom have today shown off the new console generation in SSStyle with Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition. As the publisher’s first title on next-gen, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition comes packed with an abundance of new features and game modes, all of which can only be powered by next-gen consoles, with the headline act being that of the addition of the heavily requested arrival of Vergil as a playable character.
With Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition, Capcom is also upping the ante on stylish action with the introduction of next-gen features such as ray tracing technology and enhanced 3D audio, fan-favorite modes including Turbo Mode and Legendary Dark Knight Mode, and the inclusion of Deluxe Edition and EX Color Pack content.
It’ll be powered by Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine – that behind the likes of Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3 – with the engine arriving on next-gen consoles for unparalleled realism and visual spectacle. Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition punches up the already cutting edge performance of the RE Engine by integrating numerous audio and visual enhancements, with players able to choose to enable increased frame rates of up to 120fps, play in stunning 4K fidelity on supporting consoles, and experience the added sense of realism offered by the life-like reflections, shadows, and lighting of ray tracing technology.
Further to that, enhanced 3D audio will help players maintain their Smokin’ Sexy Style through the frenetic action and pulse-pounding score by allowing players to hear enemy movements above, below, and to any side of their character with pin-point precision.
That’s not all though and thanks to the power of next-gen consoles, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will unlock new ways to experience the superb stylish action with the inclusion of new gameplay modes such as Legendary Dark Knight Mode and Turbo Mode. Each mode offers a new and distinct level of difficulty for those looking to push their skills to the limit. Fans seeking an added challenge can grapple with the increased enemy count in the perilous Legendary Dark Knight Mode, a new difficulty level which promises to keep even the most seasoned devil hunters on their toes by pitting their skills and style against a Crazy amount of enemies. Adrenaline junkies can pit their reaction times against the increased speed of Turbo Mode, which ups the gameplay speed by 20 percent to allow for even more rapid fire and fluid combos.
And then finally comes the big news and motivated by the overwhelming fan requests for playable Vergil, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition adds to the latest installment in the Sons of Sparda saga by allowing players to play through the destruction of the fictitious Red Grave City as Vergil. In addition, players will be able to take Vergil through the perilous floors of the Bloody Palace challenge mode, while wielding his iconic blade the Yamato. but you won’t have to be going all next-gen to get access here – all Vergil content will also be made available for current owners of Devil May Cry 5 for RRP €4.99 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC via Steam.
