The launch of next-gen consoles usually brings all kinds of wonderful new games for players to dive into. Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and S is now available and boasts some pretty impressive features. One common criticism from many outlets has been its lackluster lineup of new games to play. However, several games bridge the gap between the generations, such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. And some developers have optimized past titles to take full advantage of the new hardware. These revamped games include Bloober Team’s cyberpunk horror title, Observer: System Redux, and Capcom’s phenomenal hack-and-slash game, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition.
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition has launched digitally with the Xbox Series X and S. It will also be available digitally on the PlayStation 5 at launch on November 12th. Physical copies will be available through various retailers on December 1st. It costs $39.99.
What’s New to Devil May Cry 5
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will showcase features that enhance the game’s visuals, audio, and performance. Players can enable increased frame rates of up to 120 fps as well as play in 4K fidelity on the consoles that support it. While the Xbox Series X version will utilize ray tracing technology, this feature is unfortunately unavailable on the less-powerful Xbox Series S. In terms of sound quality, the 3D audio has been enhanced so players can hear any enemy movements, no matter the direction they’re attacking from. These crisp visual and audio improvements are sure to lend themselves well to the fast-paced gameplay.
But there’s more to Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition than the next-gen tech features. This version will also include all content from the Deluxe Edition and EX Color Pack. The new Legendary Dark Knight difficulty will challenge players with increased enemies during each fight. And the Turbo Mode will let players slice and dice faster than ever before. Additionally, Capcom has added fan-favorite character Vergil, who is playable for all missions. However, players on past consoles won’t be left in the dark when it comes to the new character. They can purchase Vergil for $4.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam starting December 15th.
