Devil May Cry 5 Demo Now Live on Xbox One, Play as Nero in Red Grave City

Yesterday, at the Game Awards 2018, Capcom came up with a brand new trailer of Devil May Cry 5 and afterward they announced that a demo is coming soon. Capcom is calling it Devil May Cry 5 demo and it’s exclusively coming to Xbox One.

According to the reports, Devil May Cry 5 demo is already live on the Xbox One. Devil May Cry 5 demo allows you to take the role of Nero in the game. Nero is one of the three main characters in DMC 5.

This DMC 5 demo takes you to the Red Grave City level and you’ll meet some demons to take on. Nero will have main sword, Red Queen, and special Devil Breaker abilities at his disposal to use. Blue Rose handgun is also available in the game for some fast action.

So you have a few months to get an idea of the gameplay before it arrives worldwide on March 8, 2019.

Capcom then went on to reveal a lot of interesting details about Devil May Cry 5. Capcom has now shared that Bloody Palace Mode is coming to DMC 5. It will come as a free DLC in April 2019. This Bloody Palace Mode is an elimination kind of mode with loads of enemies and a boss at the end of each stage.

Another addition to the game is the Cameo System. This Cameo system allows the players to appear as guests in each other’s gameplay sessions.

Here’s how it works according to Capcom:

The game is primarily a single player experience, but director Itsuno-san and the team really wanted to tell an epic story with three distinct perspectives and play-styles, where the main protagonists run into each other and collaborate from time to time. So to make that a reality, they’ve implemented a system where, while connected to the Internet, players will make guest cameo appearances in each other’s games in real time, or through ghost data gameplay recordings. Depending on the mission, you’ll see another player in the background, but in other cases, you’ll actually be slicing and dicing demons side-by-side with another player!

Though Capcom says that their main focus is on the single-player experience inside. As for the new DMC trailer goes, it shows us V’s unique gameplay. “V” is one of the main characters in the game who has been hidden for a very long time.

Finally, we got to see his abilities in detail. According to Capcom, V is a weak character as compared to Nero and Dante. But he has a very unique ability which allows him to summon three different demons which assist him during battles.

These 3 demons are as follows.

  • Shadow – a swift, four-legged panther-like creature with savage agility that sees him change his shape into sharp blades and needles for perfectly executed close-range attacks
  • Griffon – a bird-like demon possessing aerial combat skills which allows him to carry V across Red Grave City and shoot lightning bolts at enemies from up above
  • Nightmare – the most powerful of V’s demons. Nightmare’s gigantic size sees him destroy enemies with just his basic attack, and he can also fire beams of light to destroy any approaching foes.

Devil May Cry 5 is unlike any game we have seen before in the series. Everyone who has played the game already seems very satisfied as it’s badass, sexy and smooth.

Devil May Cry 5 will release on March 2019 for Xbox One, PC and PS4.
