At E3 this year, it was announced at Microsoft’s E3 press that a new Devil May Cry game is in the works. The latest instalment of the game is titled Devil May Cry 5 and it is a sequel to Devil May Cry 4, which was now released over a decade ago. At E3, the Xbox 2018 live stream gave fans a first look at brand new gameplay footage of Devil May Cry 5 and the game’s creator, Hidaeki Itsuno, explained some of the design, weapons, and characters included in the game.
Recently, it was also indicated by Itsuno, and Devil May Cry 5 producers, Michiteru Okab and Matthew Walker, that they are in fact working on a playable Devil May Cry 5 demo to release to the public soon. There are no further details surrounding the playable demo yet, but it is highly likely that Itsuno, Okab, and Walker are talking about a playable demo that will be brought to Gamescom that is about two months away.
The gameplay demo at E3 shows off Nero’s new weaponized cyborg arm, called Devil Breaker, that can be used to kill demons, as well as very impressive photo-realistic graphics. Dante’s new weapon seems to have shock damage, and it also extends to bring enemies closer to him for close-combat. The E3 reveal trailer also shows off how these photo-realistic graphics are combined with that classic Devil May Cry charm that will hopefully create a worthy next-generation successor to the series we love so much.
As mentioned at E3, Devil May Cry will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. We are yet to find out whether the gameplay demo will be released on the Xbox and PlayStation online stores, or whether it will only be playable at special events, such as Gamescom, if it will be at Gamescom at all, but we are sure looking forward to being able to experience Devil May Cry 5 first hand soon.
Devil May Cry 5 is coming in Spring 2019.
