Fans of Devil May Cry 5 have been longing for an end-game multiplayer or co-op mode since its release. Although Capcom hasn’t made an official announcement yet, it seems that there will be a new update soon. Steam has added new tags to the game, hinting at PvP and Co-op multiplayer features.
Keeping a close look to Steam’s tags can prove useful when it comes to game updates. In the Devil May Cry situation, it only took one day for a fan to find out that the game’s categories have changed.
Apart from the classic Single-Player tag, Multiplayer, Online PvP and Co-op have been added. Note that categories are official tags about each game and are totally different than fan tags. Capcom seems to be behind this change.
What would we want from a Devil May Cry 5 multiplayer mode though? Given the game’s fast-paced hack-n-slash character, fans would appreciate the introduction of a horde mode where players will have to cooperate in order to slay large numbers of enemies. If Capcom could make it look like a rogue-like mode, granting you loot and unlocking random abilities, it would change the whole picture for the franchise.
Apart from that though, the categories clearly suggest that there will be Multiplayer PvP in Devil May Cry 5. On that end, who wouldn’t want to see players posing as Dante and Vergil in a battle to the death? Capcom doesn’t play safe anymore when it comes to DMC, so we should expect something big to hit the game soon.
For those that want a taste of multiplayer in DMC 5 right now, you can check out the COOP Trainer from Nexus Mods, which enhances the already existing co-op functionality within the game.
Note, however, that this mode isn’t licensed by Capcom and isn’t available through Steam Workshop, so you might be risking your game’s integrity if you decide to use it. Download and activate the mod on your own risk.
Devil May Cry 5 is available on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. The game has exceeded the company’s expectations when it comes to sales, so it wouldn’t come as a surprise if they continue supporting it in the long run.
