Vergil calling you?
Devil May Cry 5 was one of the best character action games in recent memory. So of course it deserves to bring a console generation with us. (As if quality is the only thing that dictates whether a game will get a next-gen release.)
Capcom has revealed that Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition is a new PS5 version of the 2022 game. However, the reveal trailer didn't really tell us about the improvements that would make it superior on PS5 from a technological standpoint. From a content perspective, it is presumed that Vergil will be playable like in DMC3: Special Edition.
[Update:[Update: Now that the stream is complete, we got some actual details. As expected, Vergil is playable. In terms of graphics and performance, gamers will have the option to enable ray tracing and target 4K resolution at 30fps. Or, they can prioritize refresh rate and aim for 1080p at 60 fps. There's also a High Framerate mode that can hit 120 frames per second (assuming you have a display capable of that).
There are a few other additions to Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition. There is a Turbo mode which has been a staple of DMC Special Editions. It increases game speed up to 1,2x. There's also a Legendary Dark Knight difficulty that spawns "multiple times enemies compared to other difficulties." It does all the DualSense haptic feedback through the controller.
Finally, we discovered that Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition costs $40 at launch. Check out the write-up on the PlayStation Blog for all the first-hand details.]
We will find out soon enough. Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition will be available digitally when the PS5 launches.
