Capcom is tuning up one of their recent releases of last year and porting it to next gen, as new Devil May Cry 5 PS5 gameplay videos have been released showing Dante’s katana wielding brother Vergil as a playable character. Released via IGN, the new videos include the first eight minutes of the game, a hands-on preview of Vergil in action, and “Legendary Dark Night” mode — showing that the new game should provide a big challenge to fans of the series!
Here’s the new videos straight from the PS5 version of the game that feature the other son of Sparda in action.
Originall released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March last year, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition follows in the footsteps of its predecessors and adds extra content and modes not found in the previous release. This will be exclusive to next gen systems, and will be a launch title for both the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 on their respective release dates. Here’s the overview from the official Devil May Cry 5 website:
Take advantage of the power of the next generation of consoles and tailor the options to your preferred gameplay experience. Fine-tune your experience as you prioritize gorgeous and photorealistic lighting effects using ray-tracing, the sharpest resolution possible, or the highest framerates the series has ever offered.
Not enough? You’ll also be able to hear the action unfold around you with incredible 3D sound, and loading times go by in a blink to keep the thrills coming. All of this with even more intense new modes so you can push your style to the max. And the icing on the infernal cake? Vergil joins the gang as a new playable character!
The PlayStation®5 version even uses the DualSense™ controller’s adaptive triggers to let you feel the tension of battle in the tips of your fingers.
