Devil May Cry V Special Edition launches on next-gen

With the release of the Xbox Series X|S today and the PS5 on Thursday, Capcom has brought last year’s excellent Devil May Cry V back for another round.

Even a devil may cry

If you played Devil May Cry V last year, then you already know that it’s one of the best pure action games in years. The title rounds out the Sons of Sparda storyline with awesome fast-action gameplay, and stunning looks.

Now it’s getting even better looking though, thanks to the Special Edition of the game. The new revamp is hitting this week for both the Xbox Series X|S and the PS5, and includes a brand new playable character in Dante’s bro Vergil.

And as you can see, it’s looking pretty great:

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition ups the ante on the award-winning stylish action with next-gen features that enhance visuals, audio and performance. Players can enable increased frame rates of up to 120 fps, play in stunning 4K fidelity on supporting consoles, and battle amid the life-like reflections, pooling shadows, and vivid lighting created using ray tracing* technology. Enhanced 3D audio helps players maintain their Smokin’ Sexy Style through the frenetic action and pulse-pounding score by allowing players to hear enemy movements above, below, and to any side of their character with pin-point precision. Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition also includes all Deluxe Edition and EX Color Pack content from Devil May Cry 5.

* While ray tracing will be available as a downloadable title update on Xbox Series X, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will not support ray tracing on Xbox Series S.

Capcom press release

Devil May Cry V Special Edition is out now digitally on the Xbox Series X|S and will hit on the 12th for the PS5. Physical versions will arrive on the 1st of December, but both versions of the game will run you $39.99 USD either way.

If it’s just Vergil you’re after though, you can get him separately to add onto your already existing copy of the game for last-gen consoles and the PC. That content goes up for sale on December 15th for $4.99 USD.
