Capcom will launch Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X as early as November, the Japanese studio announced earlier this week. Presented during Sony’s PlayStation 5 Showcase, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is not just a visually improved version of the critically-acclaimed game, as new content is included as well.
Interesting enough, this will be Capcom’s first title on next-generation consoles and comes packed with a plethora of new features and game modes powered by next-gen consoles. More importantly, players will be able to play as Vergil in this special edition of Devil May Cry 5.
The game includes next-gen features such as ray tracing technology and enhanced 3D audio, fan-favorite modes including Turbo Mode and Legendary Dark Knight Mode, as well as all the content of the Deluxe Edition and EX Color Pack content.
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will be available for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, with the digital version arriving as day one launch titles for next-gen consoles. The release timing of the physical versions will be shared at a later date.
Capcom’s game ramps up the already cutting edge performance of the RE Engine by integrating numerous audio and visual enhancements. Players can choose to enable increased frame rates of up to 120fps, play in stunning 4K fidelity on supporting consoles, and experience the added sense of realism offered by the life-like reflections, shadows, and lighting of ray tracing technology.
Keep in mind though that for the Xbox Series X/S versions of the game, ray tracing will be included as part of a future update. With the addition of new gameplay modes such as Legendary Dark Knight Mode and Turbo Mode, players will be given the chance to experience new and distinct levels of difficulty.
The Legendary Dark Knight Mode is a new difficulty level that promises to keep even the most seasoned devil hunters on their toes by pitting their skills and style against a crazy amount of enemies. Adrenaline junkies can pit their reaction times against the increased speed of Turbo Mode, which ups the gameplay speed by 20 percent to allow for even more rapid-fire and fluid combos.
Finally, in addition to the new Vergil mode, players will be able to take Vergil through the perilous floors of the Bloody Palace challenge mode, while wielding his iconic blade the Yamato. All Vergil content will also be made available for current owners of Devil May Cry 5 for €5/$5 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam).
