Capcom has unveiled a great deal of new information about Devil May Cry 5, including the return of a horde mode, an exclusive demo, and a breakdown of the game’s multiplayer feature.
After the short teaser that debuted during yesterday’s Game Awards ceremony, the publisher released a lengthy new trailer that showed off Devil May Cry 5‘s three heroes in action. The standout was V, as players haven’t seen much from him since his initial reveal in September. It appears he’ll use a long cane for close combat but will primarily let his spirit and demon friends do the fighting for him.
It was also teased in the footage that the series’ Bloody Palace will return. In the mode, players must defeat as many enemies and bosses as they can with only one life. It’s unclear how many floors Devil May Cry 5‘s palace will have, but past games had reached as high as 9,999. Unfortunately, this feature won’t be available at launch but will instead arrive in April 2019.
For fans itching to play the game before March, an Xbox One exclusive demo is now available. It lets players take control of Nero in Redgrave City with access to his Red Queen sword, Blue Rose handguns, and the Overture and Gerbera Devil Breakers to spice up battles.
As for the game’s multiplayer, it will be known as the Cameo system. According to a recent Capcom-Unity blog post, the feature will let Nero, Dante, and V fight alongside each other. However, it will work more like the Dark Souls series’ take on multiplayer. “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,” Capcom wrote.
Players that can’t get enough of Devil May Cry 5‘s music now have another track to rock out with: V’s theme song, “Crimson Cloud.” Check out the video below to hear the music by Jeff Rona and see the performance by Rachel Fannan.
Devil May Cry 5 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 8th, 2019.
