Devil May Cry 5 is coming to PlayStation 5 digitally at launch. It'll be enhanced as Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition, and you'll finally be able to play as Vergil. It should look amazing on Sony's next-gen system, that's for sure.
Gameplay enhancements include:
- Turbo Mode, boosting gameplay speed by x1.2
- Legendary Dark Knight difficulty, which spawns way more enemies
- Playable Vergil
Vergil is also coming to the regular Devil May Cry 5 on PS4 at a later date. He'll be paid DLC, however.
What's great about the Vergil DLC is that we can get Vergil on PS4 as well! I thought it was only going to be on PS5
So it's DMC 5 but it looks a little better...
I don't know why this was in the showcase, but I don't have DMC, so I guess I'll get it.
So is it DLC available for the main game? PS5 upgrade path?
@HotGoomba Its a typical DMC thing and what every entry has done since DMC3, you have the normal version and then sometime later a SE version with new modes and new characters to play as. This is fantastic news for DMC fans especially because its Virgil.
Seeing as this is from Capcom, I'm guessing this won't be a free upgrade.
Capcom has done it again! Gotta love 'em.
They also added ray tracing. You can play with it enabled at 4K 30fps (thanks but no thanks) or 1080p 60fps. Without ray tracing, you can get up to 120fps.
Would've liked to see some middle ground resolution option for 60fps and not just 1080p, like 1440p checkerboarded but I guess not. Maybe the PS5 has a DLSS type upscaler? Hope so.
@Bentleyma- with Vergil also being added as DLC for the current gen versions, I can see it being both a paid and free upgrade, depending on if you bought that DLC.
DMC 5 is a strange game for me.
I liked it very much while playing it and stopped liking it after i finished it.
Virgil DLC is £5 for PS4 players.
PS4 to PS5 upgrade path (as well as Xbox) hasn't been settled on but is being looked into - Capcom said more info to come.
PS5 physical release is coming out next year.
I'm disappointed they didn't give us Trish or Lady ☹️ I'll play this of course but I hope we get something with them soon.
The trailer started with a tar surface with puddles and I immediately said out loud “is this a new DMC?”
And so the 'SE with Vergil' becomes a trend, though if this is all they're putting in, I'm not sure if I'll bother for a while, having already bought a digital copy of the original some months back. If they put Lady and Trish in, that'll be great, but as is, I might wait a bit before getting this again.
Damn them...I had just bought DMC 5 digitally recently.
Here's hoping Capcom does look into PS4 to PS5 upgrade paths.
