Devil May Cry 5 returns with next-gen Special Edition

Posted on September 17, 2020

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will be one of the games available at the launch of the PS5. The game is a port of the last console generation version with a few new bits and bobs to pique your interest. The biggest edition is adding Vergil (Dante’s much less fun brother/main villan of the game) as a playable character, any fans of DMCV know that you have technically played through the game as Vergil already, but this special edition adds him in a much more concrete manner.

There isn’t much information so far about how the Vergil expansion will fit into the original game, whether it will be a sequel, prequel or somehow find a way to run concurrently. Though in the trailer there are some new enemies and what appear to be new areas in the sections with Vergil, so it’s likely that the expansion is going to add a good chunk more to what I think is an already amazing game

No need to fear if you own DMC V already, Vergil can be added to your copy of the game with the purchase of an expansion. Other additions for this re-release include Turbo Mode which is the ability to play the game at 1.2x speed (for some reason) and Legendary Dark Knight difficulty, if Dante Must Die wasn’t hard enough for you. Additionally players will have the option of playing with ray tracing enabled, target of 4K resolution and a frame rate of 30 frames per second, or disabled, which will run at 1080p and 60 frames per second.or a High Framerate Mode that will allow players to target a frame rate of a whopping 120 fps.

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will be “available digitally at launch” on both PS5 and Xbox Series X. Capcom will release a physical disc version of the game sometime later.
