Devil May Cry 5 developer Capcom may introduce multiplayer with future updates. The latest installment in the Devil May Cry series does feature online multiplayer component but it isn’t what most would expect to see. However, it quite clearly lays the foundation for proper Dark Souls-ish multiplayer features.
In the new Devil May Cry game, the game uses ghost data from other players to bring V in certain sections of the game to help Nero. It isn’t far-fetched to think Capcom may add a proper multiplayer mode to Devil May Cry 5 in post-release. But this doesn’t mean you can’t play the game with your buddy, during certain sections of the game the player can enter each other’s game and fight side-by-side.
The feature can easily be expanded to allow players to fight side by side throughout the campaign. While this is a possibility, Capcom remains committed to the game’s single-player campaign.
Again, our focus is in providing a single-player experience like no other, so this cameo system also ensures the experience is always smooth as possible with no downtime.
Capcom confirmed that both players must cross the same path for them to cross over in the game. You can not randomly decide to jump in at any time. Moreover, you need an active internet connection or go offline to play alongside a ghost.
There are three playable characters in Devil May Cry V – Dantie, V, and Nero. You will switch between these characters at different points in the game.
Devil May Cry 5 is releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8, 2019. Capcom released a demo for the game on PS Store and Xbox Live for players to test and get a taste of things to come.
