In case you missed out on the last Devil May Cry 5 demo on Xbox One, a new one is now available for both Xbox One and PS4. As noted on the game’s official Twitter, this demo introduces a new Devil Breaker called the Punch Line, as well as the ability to power up by calling Nico.
The last demo was available on Xbox One in December but was subsequently pulled in January. That one was Xbox One exclusive, and it remained playable for those who had downloaded it previously. This second demo is the first time PS4 players get a taste of the stylish action game.
Devil May Cry 5 is a direct sequel to DMC4, ignoring the series reboot that received a mixed reception. As a result it brings back Dante and Nero in recognizable fashion, along with a new playable character named V. He appears to have an axe to grind against the other heroes, and his move set is more about controlling a variety of summoned beasts–you can check out some new S-rank gameplay featuring V above. Devil May Cry 5 is among our most anticipated games of 2019, and we just spent several hours kicking its tires.
“When DmC: Definitive Edition and DMC4: Special Edition both launched in 2015, it lay a crossroads of where the series could go,” wrote editor Matt Espineli. “After playing both, I realized that the series can honestly be one or the other and still be phenomenal. Before going to this event, I anticipated Capcom would make DMCV a hybrid of both, but in the end it seemingly chose one: classic DMC.”
Devil May Cry 5 is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 8.
