Original Xbox-Only Devil May Cry 5 Demo has Been Improved and Released on PS4

Original Xbox-Only Devil May Cry 5 Demo has Been Improved and Released on PS4

New Demo Plus lets you replay the demo with progress carried forward.

A new(ish) demo for Devil May Cry 5 is out now for PS4 and Xbox One. Capcom has updated the original Xbox One-only demo, so even if you played it back in December there are reasons to give it another whirl.

While this demo for Devil May Cry 5 is set in the same area and once again sees you slaying demons as Nero, but you'll get a better taste of what the full game will offer. For one, you can use the Punch Line Devil Breaker (a robotic arm that wasn't in the first demo), which can be used to fire out rockets in a variety of ways. Nero will gain access to multiple Devil Breakers throughout Devil May Cry 5.

For many players, having a new Devil Breaker to play around with would be enough to warrant another playthrough of the demo, but the real bonus here is being able to play through the demo again and carry your progress forward. This ties nicely with Nico's van being available, letting you upgrade Nero's skills.

USG went hands-on with Devil May Cry 5 back at gamescom last year and came away describing the game as "accessible yet deep." Editor-in-chief Kat Bailey played a brand-new build of the game recently. Read her Devil May Cry 5 impressions to see why she drew comparisons to Final Fantasy 12.

Devil May Cry 5 is the first game in the numbered series since Devil May Cry 4 released in January 2008. In the years between we got DmC: Devil May Cry, Ninja Theory's 2013 take on the series, which didn't go down well with hardcore fans.

Devil May Cry 5 releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8. You can get all the latest info on the game in our Devil May Cry 5 guide. Capcom will be looking to continue its great start to 2019, having had a very successful launch of Resident Evil 2 in January.
