Guide by Hirun Cryer, Jake Green, .

A limited Devil May Cry 5 demo is out right now, if you fancy giving the game a try ahead of launch early next year. In this guide to Capcom's big 2019 game, we'll be putting together a complete guide of everything you need to know about the upcoming game, including the final Devil May Cry 5 release date, all the Devil May Cry 5 gameplay footage that we've seen so far, and much more.

Devil May Cry 5 Release Date

Devil May Cry 5 will be releasing on March 8, 2019. This release date puts it right in the middle of an incredibly busy first quarter of 2019, including other blockbuster games like the Resident Evil 2 Remake, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Anthem, and more.

Devil May Cry 5 Demo

If you didn't attend Gamescom or EGX Berlin (as most people didn't), then you might still be wondering how the game feels to actually play. If you've got an Xbox One, then you're in luck, for there's a Devil May Cry 5 demo out right now, exclusively on Microsoft's console.

While you can download the demo right now on Xbox One (which comes in at right around 7GB), Capcom did announce that the demo would be coming to PC and PS4 at a later date. When this could be exactly, we're not really sure, but we'll update this section as soon as we find out.

Devil May Cry 5 Trailer

We know that there'll be three playable characters in Devil May Cry 5, one of which will be an older Dante. You can check out the seasoned demon slayer in the trailer just below, which was released back at the Tokyo Games Show 2018.

Elsewhere in the trailer just above, we can see the third playable character, known only as 'V'. There's precious little to go on about this newcomer right now, but we do know that we'll be playing as him for certain sections of the game, and we'll also be able to choose which character we want to play as in some sections of Devil May Cry 5.

Later in 2018, Capcom quietly revealed that there would be some customizations available for characters in Devil May Cry 5. Specifically, as you can see just below, there'll be multiple costumes for different characters, including one that changes Nico's appearance pretty dramatically.

Devil May Cry 5 Impressions

For the very first time, Devil May Cry 5 was playable for everyone attending Gamescom 2018 in Germany, and we spent a good amount of time with Nero. For all the impressions from our time with DmC 5, head ove to our Devil May Cry 5 hands-on preview.

Devil May Cry 5 Photo Mode

During a Twitch stream of the Devil May Cry 5 PAX West panel, it was revealed that there would be a photo mode coming to Capcom's sequel. You can see the full PAX West panel through YouTube just below, and the team discuss the photo mode at roughly the 21 minute mark.

Devil May Cry 5 4K and 60FPS Details

In late September, Capcom revealed that Devil May Cry 5 is targeting 4K and 60FPS, on the PS4 Pro, at least. Capcom producer Matt Walker confirmed the details on Twitter, saying "It will indeed. 4k@60fps on Pro." While the PS4 Pro doesn't technically support native 4K, it's still a reassuring extra detail from Capcom.

Devil May Cry 5 Development Team

A previous leak claimed that Hideaki Itsuno's team, who previously worked on the Devil May Cry series as well as Dragon's Dogma, are behind the development of Devil May Cry 5, and that Yuji Shimomura, who previously worked on cutscenes for Devil May Cry and Bayonetta, is returning for the upcoming game. Capcom confirmed this during E3 2018, at the Xbox Press Conference.

What Platforms is Devil May Cry 5 Coming to?

In addition to all this, Devil May Cry 5 is launching for PlayStation 4, and apparently coming to PC at a later date. The game is targeting 60 frames per second for consoles, it will also be making its way to Xbox One, after debuting on the Microsoft E3 2018 Press Conference.

As of right now, these are all the confirmed details that we have on Devil May Cry 5. As soon as Capcom announce any additional details for their upcoming game, we'll make sure to update this page immediately.
