Players will soon have a reason to jump back into Devil May Cry 5

Capcom has announced Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition. Keeping with Devil May Cry tradition, the Special Edition of the fifth iteration of the series will make additions to the original. One of the biggest additions is the ability to play as Virgil. Virgil will retain his Concentration Gauge, which he received in Devil May Cry 4. However, he will receive a few other enhancements for Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition. A trailer was released for the upcoming Special Edition, and showcased Virgil in action. We see a good number of the techniques that he will be able to utilize, as he slashes through a good number of demons at an extreme pace. For those who own the original version of the game on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, Virgil will be released as paid DLC sometime after Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition releases for next-gen consoles. 

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will see a number of graphical and sound enhancements. The game will now support ray tracing. Players will have the option to turn on ray tracing and prioritize resolution (targeting 4K at 30fps) or frame rate (targeting 1080p at 60fps). Players will also be able to turn on High Framerate Mode, which will let the play the game at 120fps. The game will now feature 3D audio, allowing players to pinpoint enemies specifically where they are in relation to the camera by their cries. 

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will come with two new features: Turbo Mode and the Legendary Dark Knight difficulty. Turbo Mode allows players to kick up the game to 1.2x its normal speed, jacking the action up a notch. The Legendary Dark Knight difficulty provides multiple times the number of enemies compared to other difficulties, creating a good amount of chaos on screen.  

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will release for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S when they drop. A physical edition will release for the next-gen consoles at a later date.
