  • Devil May Cry V Demo Arrives Today on Xbox One, New Gameplay Details Revealed

    A new trailer and a few surprises dropped tonight during The Game Awards for Devil May Cry 5. First up, an exclusive demo for the game will hit the Xbox One at some point today, December 7.

    This smokin’, sexy, stylish demo sees players assume the role of young demon hunter Nero on the streets of Red Grave City as he takes on several demons including the Mighty Goliath in the eternal battle between the forces of good and evil. Players can execute devastating attacks on enemies using Nero’s special Devil Breaker arms designed by his partner in crime and self-professed “weapons artist” Nico. Combined with melee attacks using his ‘Red Queen’ sword and the long range firepower of his ‘Blue Rose’ handgun, the power of Nero’s Devil Breaker arms make the dramatic, adrenaline-fuelled action even more thrilling.

    Beyond this, some bonus gameplay details were revealed in tandem with a new trailer that was shown off earlier this evening.

    Viewers of The Game Awards were also treated to the first details of the mysterious character V. V may appear weak next to Nero and Dante, but he has the ability to unleash a unique fighting style that sees him summon three different demons to assist in battle:

    Shadow – a swift, four-legged panther-like creature with savage agility that sees him change his shape into sharp blades and needles for perfectly executed close-range attacks
    Griffon – a bird-like demon possessing aerial combat skills which allows him to carry V across Red Grave City and shoot lightning bolts at enemies from up above
    Nightmare – the most powerful of V’s demons. Nightmare’s gigantic size sees him destroy enemies with just his basic attack, and he can also fire beams of light to destroy any approaching foes.

    Utilizing a combination of all three demons’ powers, players can take their enemies down to the brink of death, allowing V to swing into battle and finish them off with a devastating cane attack.

    Capcom also revealed that the game is bringing back the Bloody Palace Mode. This free update will release for the game in April 2019 following the game's launch on March 8, 2019. The mode pits players against "hordes of fast-approaching enemies and bosses until they reach the end."

    Oh, and the game features online co-op. Capcom revealed that those who choose to play online will see other players "making special guest appearances in the game as they battle other demons around Red Grave City." These players will sometimes even join up together for encounters.

    Look for more on Devil May Cry 5 in the months ahead. Until then, enjoy this extended cut of the trailer that you saw at The Game Awards 2018. Also included are some new screenshots and character art from Capcom.
